Crabbit-Minger's Profile Picture

Sir Crabbit Minger is a slobbish creature with the gut, intellect and manners of a Neanderthal. In between musing on Scottish and Irish history the poor fool entertains pretensions of artistry.


I always had a soft spot for the Norse myths. They're unrelentingly bleak and gloomy which suits a miserable bastard like me just fine, but they also had a sense of fun and wit. It's not every pantheon you have the God of Thunder getting his arse kicked by an old granny or going undercover in a bridal frock to recover a stolen hammer.

So what culture do you think had the most memorable myths and legends?
Fairy Family Photo
Trows are a creature common in the folklore of the Orkney and Shetland Isles. The fairy stories of the locals mingled with the tales of Trolls imported by Norse settlers, creating the Trow.

This beastie took on aspects of both creatures, like the The Troll's hatred of sunlight and the fairy's love of music. One wonders what kind of parent could have conceived such a creature (Though the particulars of her conception are a secret thankfully lost to the ages).
Your Old Pal Jibber-Jabber!
Allo', allo', allo' guys and gals! Name's Jibber, Jibber-Jabbber to be exact! Might of heard of me old man, Mr Punch and his Mrs, Judy (Right shame bout' them two. It all ended with a 999 call, a close shave with a cheese grater and a very sticky blender. Tragic but sort of inevitable). Me, I make it my mission to bring smiles and joy to all the little boys and girls. A Zykoln-B Pie here, a razor blade apple there, and wash it all down with Gangrene candy floss!

Little Tim didn't take too kind to my kind of fun. Said it war right naff. Not his exact words but I couldn't bring meself to use the kind of rotten language in polite company. What are you lot teaching your kids these days? But I took him round the back of the old snake oil and seal skin factory and taught him a thing or two. I just love putting a smile on the little uns' faces I do. Granted theyr'e held there with staples but a fella does what he can. Now, who wants some snacks?
A Gift From a Selkie
Come, sit yourself down dearies. Fancy a nibble? Nothing like a bit of fresh wolf's brains. The Medulla goes down a treat with a pinch of caviar. What, I'm not quite what you expected? I'm not surprised. The stuff you hear of my kind nowadays, all that talk of sealskins and raven haired lasses playing housewife to horny fishermen?

Cute, if you're into that sort of thing. But the older tales, that's where we really shined. Any loud mouthed boor who crossed us, we'd make off with his sheep, rip the fluffy buggers limb from limb. Or we might just coax the fool into the foam then drag him to the dankest depths of the North Atlantic.

Now are you going to eat your wolf's brains or not? It's bad form to cross your host.
