Blogging the Trojan War: Day by Day

I have no freakin' clue where I found this one or how I found it.

Check out Under Odysseus, in which some cat going by the name of "Eurylochus" is "blogging" the events of the Iliad (the seige of Troy part) as if he's there and on the frontlines. The guy's acting deadly serious and in-chracter, which is what makes it so hilarious.

Selection from the latest entry (they've started building The Horsem by the way):

With some instructions from Calchas, Agamemnon and Menelaus started wailing and dumped their grandfather’s bones in the dirt. Calchas then started dancing and chanting wildly, kicking the bones all about.

I have to wonder what makes a king decide to let some delusional maniac kick his grandfather’s bones. I mean, on a bad day, a guy could get killed just for sneezing on Agamemnon.

Anyway, after Calchas deemed the bones to be sufficiently scattered, he frantically rushed Agamemnon and Menelaus out of the circle and began to study their placement very carefully. Calchas studied those bones for the rest of the day.
