What do you do when it’s +2 in the middle of February?
You stage the EPIC BATTLE OF THERMOPYLAE in your back yard.
|Here are the Spartans. They are few in number, but they are brave.|
|This is the leader of the Spartans, King Leonidas I. He has a wicked six-pack:|
|The Spartans armed themselves, and climbed to the top of the mountain pass:|
They formed up into battle positions;|
And then came the Persians, led by Xerxes.|
A great and epic battle ensued.|
EPIC BATTLE OF THERMOPYLAE
|At the end, blood covered that narrow mountain pass. The Spartans lay broken and dying. The Persians went on to star in the MGM Production of Antony and Cleopatra.|
According to The Nipper, there were lasers and multicoloured fire involved. Red fire, Green fire, and Blue fire. This is a little bit of artistic freedom taken with the historical accuracy of the BATTLE OF THERMOPYLAE, but I think that’s okay.
