Attila The Hun: A History Guy

Yes, Attila the Hun was the terror of Europe back in the fifth century AD. But really, what did it take to be the terror of Europe back then? People believed in witches and wood nymphs and ogres that lived under bridges. Attila probably took over most of Europe simply by walking around and telling scary stories about trolls and evil leprachauns, and then saying, “Boo!” really loud. Hell, we’re pretty frightened of any sort of leprachaun, and we’re here in the 21st century with you. Most of the time, anyway.

Also, what the heck is a damn Hun? “Hun” is what middle-aged ladies call me when I visit the South. That, and “Sweetie,” and “Sugar” and “Honeybunch” and “Peach Blossom.” We’re pretty popular with the middle-aged Southern ladies, if you know what we mean. Awwww, yeah.
