Chaucer surely woulda if he coulda…

What could be better than “Hi and Lois”?

“Hi and Lois” translated into Middle English!

For more (from “Family Circus” and “For Better or For Worse” to “Blondie” and “Beetle Bailey”), see Japes for Owre Tymes.

As we wax nostalgic, we might recall that it was on this date in 1066 that William (then simply “Duke William of Normandy,” not yet “the Conqueror”) landed in Britain (near the modern town of Hastings) and asserted his claim to the throne of England.  Harold (who’d recently taken the crown on Edward the Confessor’s death, and even more recently beat back a Viking invasion) set out to send William and his Norman force home…  thus setting the stage for The Battle of Hastings the following month.
