"So you just imagine yourself, you're standing out there on this battlefield, somewhere in Wales... or somewhere in Texas... or somewhere in between... And all you got to your whole name is a teeny weeny itsy bitsy little wooden shield... and a chicken. And you got a big ol' opponent comin' down, swinging a big ol' sword... are you afraid? No, you're not afraid!
Because you don't have an ordinary, kind of "Icy Foods" variety, Supermarket, "fall-apart-when-you-shake-it" kind of chicken, now do you? No, this ain't no Shake 'N' Bake chicken right here, uh-uh...
We're talking a Celtic Warrior Chicken you got at your command, all right?
This thing's got some drumsticks, okay?
"The Chicken Raid of Cymru," Emerald Rose
This one is all ~ursulav
's fault. I am a huge fan of her Battle Hamsters
, so when I heard this song from Emerald Rose I knew... I just had to draw the Celtic Warrior Chicken!
So here you go.
I think I'm seeing the makings of a club here... now we need the Spartan Marmots!
