#1 Medievalist Christmas Gift

What do you get the medievalist who has everything? Something you stole from them. Actually, the answer is ‘nothing,’ since there is no such thing as a medievalist who has everything. In case you haven’t noticed, there are very few high paying jobs for people who study the middle ages, and every one of them involves Mel Gibson somehow.

So what do you get the medievalist who has several things? Chic-Fil-A has the answer:


Cows in Shining Armor, a 2006 calendar of paintings of cows dressed up like people at RennFests only dream of dressing up. For only $5.00! And if you’re lucky enough to live in the civilized parts of the US, you’ll be able to use the coupons inside, one a month, for free Chic-Fil-A sandwiches or chicken nuggets with the purchase of a medium drink!

    Oh! My! God!

    I SO need this.

    It would look great in the child’s bedroom, and he’d appreciate the joke.

    As to the high-paying jobs that involve Mel Gibson —

    I’ve gone one of the regular medievalist jobs, which is to say NOT high-paying, and it STILL involves Mel Gibson.

    Though now that the paper is published, I can maybe forget about him for a while.

    What Anne said. I am buying one of those calendars for my office and for every medievalist and medievalsit-wannabe that I know in real life. Thanks for the info!

  • Another Damned Medievalist

    I want one, too, but I hate the Chic-Fil-A Right-wing Christian politics, so will not be buying. Damn. ‘Cos I really want one!
