I'd say they had flintlocks, but I'd be lieing.

So why didn't you give some kind of sign you understood my reference!? Do you think I can read minds? That was not nice of you.

A little bit, maybe.

Was that the war with Cromwell?

"The war with Cromwell" Do you mean the English Civil War?

Cromwell was a very bad man.

In retrospect, that would be a yes. Cromwell was a wuss anyway, though, wasn't he?

You should read a book about Oliver Cromwell (and his warts).



Or you need a little history lesson, in the form of a SONG!!


JOHN: The most interesting think about King Charles the First is that he was 5"6' tall at the start of his reign, but only 4"8' tall at the end of it. Because of..

Oliver Cromwell, Lord Protector of England (Puritan)
Born in 1599 and died in 1658 (September)
Was at first (only)
MP for Huntington (but then)
He led the Ironside Cavalry at Marston Moor
in 1644 and won
Then he founded the new model army
And praise be, beat the Cavaliers at Naisby
And the King fled up North, like a bat, to the Scots

ERIC: But under the terms of John Pimm's Solemn League and Covenant, the Scots handed King Charles the First over to..

Oliver Cromwell, Lord Protector of England (and his warts)
Born in 1599 and died in 1658 (September)
But alas (Oy Vay!)
Disagreement then broke out (between)
The Presbyterian Parliament and the Military
who meant to have an independent bent and so..
The 2nd Civil War broke out
And the Roundhead ranks faced the Cavaliers
at Preston Banks
And the King lost again, silly thing! (Stupid git)

ERIC: And Cromwell sent Colonel Pride to purge the House of Commons of the Presbyterian Royalists, leaving behind only the rump Parliament...

Which appointed a High Court at Westminster Hall
To indict Charles the First for...
TY-HY-HYR-HYR-ANNY!! (Oooooohhhh!)
Charles was sentenced to death
Even though he refused to accept
That the court had..
JURIS-DI-ICTION! (Say goodbye to his head!)
Poor King Charles
Laid his head
On the block (January 1649)
DOOOOWWWNN came the ax (*chop* ooohh!)


ERIC: And, in the silence that followed, the only sound that could be heard was a solitary giggle, from...


Oliver Cromwell, Lord Protector of England (OlÇ!)
Born in 1599 and died in 1658 (September)
Then he smashed (Ireland)
Set up the commonwealth (And more!)
He crushed the Scots at Worchester
And beat the Dutch at sea in 1653 and then..
He dissolved the rump Parliament (voice gets higher)
And with Lambert's consent
Wrote the instrument of government
Under which Oliver was Protector at last
THE END! (cheers to fade)

But those are just titles. Vidkun was the leader of Norway, or had the titles, but that didn't make him cool.
