If you’ve ever wondered why so many medieval manuscripts have drawings of knights fighting snails.
- Vox, “Why knights fought snails in medieval art“, YouTube (Mar. 29, 2017).
I won’t give it away. And the comments are as good as the video. Here’s a sample:
- “The answer is simple, in medieval times giant snails were a real menace but thankfully the brave Knights of Europe wiped them all out for us.“
- “Knights were the athletes superstars of the time. Monks were the academics. Maybe the nerds were mocking the jocks?“
- “There is an explenation: The knights were french“
