from the wondrous Robyn, this link to the Historic Tale Construction Kit. What better way to procrastinate than to construct your own comic strip based on the Bayeux Tapestry?
You’ll need Flash 6, and if you’re on a dial-up connection it probably won’t work well for you, so I’ve done a single-cell story called “Woman’s Woe” which is meant to be a gentle critique of the storytelling apparatus itself. For technical creativity and visuals (you can see the stitching on each and every figure, and on the background itself), I give it a five out of five, though.

The people at Something Awful had a lot of fun with that link.
crickey, there are some witty minds over there at something awful. I particularly like “a foul and pestilent congregation of vapors has happened in my pantaloons”. Thanks for the link, Stephanie.
