The Chaucer Blog

Geoffrey Chaucer Hath a Blog, yclept, um, "Geoffrey Chaucer Hath a Blog". I particularly like his attempt to be on Hot or Not:
Plese uote for me and saye that ich am hotte. Peraventure my peynture may plese nat the moderatoures (for it is a manuscripte and ich haue but litel cleavage), yet lette vs yive this a trye!
I also thought Serpentes on a Shippe was quite a clever title...

When you talk about Chaucer
Cook's Tale in your hand
And all that Olde English
I just don't understand.

"Who so shall telle a tale after a man,
He moste reherse, as neighe as ever he can,
Everich word, if it be in his charge..."
I just don't understand.

Now Baby I love you
You're the perfect girlfriend
But why you like Geoffrey
I just don't understand.

What song is that juke?

Well I couldn't find a song with Chaucer in it, so I had to make a spoof of the Beatles' "I Just Don't Understand". Please don't post an entry on Joyce next.
