Eddie gets Medieval

Eddie Izzard tries out some of that Anglo-Saxon era English on an unsuspecting Frisian farmer (tip of the blog hat to Scott at Unlocked Wordhoard for the medieval viral vid):

This is very cool. And nothing against Mr. Izzard, but I'd really like to see this done by a scholar who has an active knowledge of OE vocabulary.

Yeah, but who wants to see a medieval scholar when you can see Eddie? Mon singe est dans l'arbre!
