# anyways please read the tain by thomas kinsella. it's a delight
you ever think of how in the tain, after going ríastrad the night before (and killing thousands of the enemy side), cú decided that he didn’t give a good impression so he put on his good clothes and pretty much did a runway show in front of the tents of the men of ireland. but the best part of it is that, because cú chulainn was so pretty, the men of enemy side just kind of lined up to look at this limited edition super pretty cú chulainn, and the wives and daughters of said men of the enemy side stood on the men’s shoulders because (cú is canonically very short) they wanted to look at cú too. a freaking power move.
