Vigo the Carpathian (Suitable for Framing)
vigo_carpathian.jpg
It's been awhile, I know. But I came across this high res image of seventeenth century Moldavian tyrant, Vigo the Carpathian and thought I'd share it with you. Vigo was poisoned, stabbed, shot, hung, stretched, disemboweled, drawn and quartered by his subjects in 1610 at the age of 105. He was known as Vigo the Cruel, Vigo the Torturer, Vigo the Despised, and Vigo the Unholy. Before his head died he uttered the words "Death is but a door, time is but a window, I'll be back."

This means his image is probably something you'll want to hang above your fireplace. (Clicking on the image links to the super-huge version)

Well you're probably feeling what Vigo's feeling... ”Carpathian Kitten Loss" He misses his kitty! Well we'll just place one in here right by the castle .

Wasn't he also known as Vigo the Butch?

I think he is already back ... doesn't he look like Larry King? The age is about right ...

Sad that I recognize/know about this guy from Ghostbusters II? I think not...

Not sad, Anna. The word you are looking for is "awesome."

You're short, your belly button sticks out too far, and you're a terrible burden on your poor mother
