Via Early Modern Notes, I discovered this (only occasionally updated) blog today, called Geoffrey Chaucer Hath A Blog. Normally, I don't go in for medieval jokes, since they make me think of medievalists, but this is pretty damn funny. I especially like the post where Chaucer discovers the newfangleness of internet abbreviations like OMG (oh mine Dominus) and WTF? (whatte the swyve?). Then he informs us that he will also be using some of his own abbreviations, which include: WC (woole customes), BATJG (biggere arsehole thanne john gowere). He hates Gower. And he doesn't love working in that CH (customes house).
