Happy Festivus

According to Cassius Dio, Queen Boadicea of the Iceni considered the Romans as being insolent, unjust, insatiable, and impious; men who bathed in warm water, ate artificial dainties, drank unmixed wine, anointed themselves with myrrh, slept on soft couches with boys for bedfellows, who, I might add, were past their prime; and all of whom were slaves to a lyre player (Nero), a poor one at that. As the result of the warrior queen's embitterment and her final battle with Rome, 80,000 Britons were killed as opposed to 400 Roman solders dead plus an additional 400 wounded. Boadicea, who had led her militia onto the killing field, met her demise allegedly by drinking poison, joining her barbarian warriors forever henceforth in the afterworld.
