Are you an eBay Warlord?

By Dan Wilson January 23, 2015 - 4:24 pm

Thanks to Nick at iPosters for sharing this and allowing us to put it up on Tamebay for a little Friday afternoon light relief.

He sells overseas and when he’s using ebay.nl, he uses the Chrome Browser and the translate function from Dutch into into English with these results.

    I found myself wondering who it could refer to. Then I thought of northumbrian. I closed my eyes and I could just imagine him in a Viking Horned Helmet(before anybody says I know that they probably didn’t wear them..the Archaeologists have not been able to find any..anywhere). A suit of chain mail covering his torso with a sheepskin jerkin covering the chain mail as its cold in the wild north and bare legs with knobbly knees. Yes now that my idea of a ebay Warlord.

    Its really bad when somebody cannot spell their own name. My only excuse is that I have been ill for a week(the problem with my poor health is that I keep going down with bug after bug and the medics have no idea why) and I have just got out of bed and I am sitting here at the computer and feeling that I should go back to bed.

    Yep, it sounds like you’re really sick. Bed is definately a good idea. I recommend a long rest with plenty of paracetamol and hot whisky, sooths most ailments!

    Hope you don’t get any “viking warlord” nightmares.

    Long live The Revolution!! :)

      Thank you for your kind greetings. I must admit that I am not a Whisky man. I much prefer 100 proof Woods Rum with an equal quantity of Shrub or perhaps a Cornish Mead.

      I have spent much of the last 6 months or so in bed with one bug after another and various bits of me either shrivelling up and dropping off or deciding that they are not on speaking terms with the rest of me. This morning I have awoken feeling at least that the latest bug is on its way out.

      However I had a further vision of an Ebay Warlord. Again thinking about northumbrian I can almost imagine him as Harald Hardrada who was King of the Vikings and died aged about 70 years in the Battle of Stamford Hill fought near York and won by King Harold of England only a short time before King Harold of England himself died in the Battle of Hastings in 1066.

      Harald Hardrada was always described as being 6 foot tall and 6 foot wide and it was all muscle(same description was used about Rollo)First Duke of Normandy-Grandfather of William of Normandy(or as he was often called William the Bastard as his mother was the local Milkmaid).

      I have never met northumbrian. But now I visualise him as 6 foot tall, 6 foot wide and all muscle wearing a Viking Horned Helmet, Chain Mail and a sheepskin jerkin and nobbly knees. It is a truly magnificent vision. Except I do hope that I never meet him as he is likely to do very nasty things to me. But truly an ebay Warlord.

    ROTFL :)

    Glad your feeling a bit better and your “medicine” sounds good. You should always do what your Doctor tells you! I wish my Doctor advised remedies like that. If he did I’d be looking forward to the next bug!!

    Long live The Revolution!! :)
