The Virgin Cobbler
Rally Round the White Flag, is a two-page Oglaf story.
Two armies face each other. One is a barbarian army from the North. But before battle is joined the Barbarians are shown an advert for how great the POW camps are. "Surrender Camp" has a pool, great food and just about as much sex as a Viking can handle. But is it true? Let's ask Hygelac; he escaped the POW camp last week. What did he think of a being in a camp full of beautiful women?
- "Launder your white flag before surrender to save confusion"
- "unskippable pre-battle advertising sucks"
- "we shall fight on the beaches, through volleyball "
- "The Geneva convention requires us to provide clothes. You can take them off, though."
Hygelac was a King of the Geats (modern day southern Sweden) and appears as the uncle of Beowulf in the epic poem. He died in battle during a raid on Frisia in about 516.
