News, but not the serious kind
The Moor the merrier…
Um, I hate to complain, but… These guys are reenacting a famous 1609 battle, with realistic period muskets and costumes and, well, sunglasses? I mean, it kind of detracts from the authenticity, don’t you think? Face it, that guy in front, with the shades and the big gold belt, looks more like a professional TV wrestler than a 17th century soldier. Feel free to drop us some clever captions via Post a Comment.
