To change the historical perception of him as a barbarian, Attila the Hun has undergone a huge makeover, beginning with his name.
“It was a misspelling right from the get-go,” he protested. “I’m really a sweet guy, and that led to some, shall we say, misperceptions. So, I went to Homeland Security and the New York State DMV and officially changed my name from Hun to the more politically correct “Hon” (short for Honey – get it? Honey, as in sweet). That’s me – a sweet guy.
And to show my sweetness and culture, my hordes and I sacked and pillaged Europe to share the booty with my American friends in the Buffalo Society of Artists. Yeah, some people raised a fuss, but shat are a few farms and towns in the bigger picture?”
The menu will be: freshly-clubbed Buffalo-style chicken wings taken in a raid on the Anchor Bar: OK, we didn’t limit our hegemony to Europe. When we first heard about wings, we thought, “Man – Buffalo is really poor – they can’t even raise whole chickens.” Then we smelled the wings.
Sack-of-Tuscany Pizzas (the Romans rolled over on this one); Run-of-the-Provinces fruit salad (don’t let it get out we tried agriculture.
The Visigoths would never let us hear the end of it). Raid-on-Hispania Salad (vegetable): OK, we got tired of twirling our battle axes, watching things grow, so we figured it was easier to pillage. Experiment in farming over. Road Kill Hors d’Oeuvres: our newfangled oxcarts are effective for hunting. Who would have thought! Pillaged wines, mostly red (because it reminds us of blood); various teas and other beverages to quench thirsts. $25 each for 20 guests.
