A Hun-ting We Will Go…

Another synaptic sputtering from Chris Cole.

It seems that the impending approach of Attila the Hun’s horde caused a rather timid Friar in a local monastery to have a crisis of faith and to flee the monastery. In spite of that he eventually ended up being captured by Attila’s troops anyway and was imprisoned in one of their nearby garrisons, just over the hill from the monastery itself.

The Abbott of the monastery went about the countryside asking if anyone had seen his errant Brother. When the Abbott asked one of the more witty locals if he knew where the Friar went, the peasant cheerily replied, “Sure! Nigh thee, to a Hunnery!”
