PC gamer's vision of a Pict with a sword, a bad attitude and an implausible paucity of garments.

Another equally implausible artist's conception.

I think this one is on drugs.

You can take your Pict.

Several Species of Small Furry Animals Gathered Together in a Cave and Grooving With a Pict (Roger Waters)

Aye an' a bit of Mackeral settler rack and ruin
ran it doon by the haim, 'ma place
well I slapped me and I slapped it doon in the side
and I cried, cried, cried.

The fear a fallen down taken never back the raize and then Craig Marion,
get out wi' ye Claymore out mi pocket a' ran doon, doon the middin stain
picking the fiery horde that was fallen around ma feet.
Never he cried, never shall it ye get me alive
ye rotten hound of the burnie crew. Well I snatched fer the blade O my
Claymore cut and thrust and I fell doon before him round his feet.

Aye! A roar he cried frae the bottom of his heart that I would nay fall
but as dead, dead as 'a can be by his feet; de ya ken?

...and the wind cried Mary.

@Adanac,
This ain't about the Dutch (although they're guilty, too), this is about Dutchmen . . . you know, "Sprechen-sie Dutch," "Dutchland uber alles?"

@Setanta,
After 23 years of living in and traveling in Europe. I never noticed any significant differences. Neither significant variation in flavor nor aroma nor mentality. The only way to tell if someone is a "Dutchman" is by his speach. The word "Dutch" is a mipronouciation of the word "Deutsch" which simply means "Teuton". We must not confuse political boundries with historical tribal names like "Flemish" or "Bavarian" or "Burgundian". As far as I can tell. All Europeans are the same when you start comparing them to non-Europeans.

@Ceili,

The blues are the original inhabitants of France, Spain and the British Isles probably migrated from Spain. During the Ice Age the seas levels were low enough for people to walk across the English Channel. They might have crossed over from africa to Spain as the sea levels were low. The Orange and Reds, R1a and R1b, are the Aryan invaders who overran Europe and probably annihilated most of the original Europeans of I, I1 and I2 haplogroups as they were probably inbred and also the Aryans had horses form central Asia..
