Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Yaks (But Were Afraid to Ask)

Tuesday, October 4th, 2011

As Genghis Khan famously declared, “Nothing comes between a barbarian and his yak.” Or, as Charles Manson put it, “A barbarian without a yak is like a basketball full of lymph.” I’m not sure what he meant, but the sentiment is clear. So if you don’t already own one, it’s time for you to sell your kids and a buy a yak. Here are some tips for selecting a good one.


1. Different breeds have different specialties. Know why you’re getting a yak: as a working animal, for food, or for love?

The Striped Yak (also known as the Mandrill Yak) is popular with children and Muppets.


Barbarian How-To: Surviving an Art Museum

Friday, September 23rd, 2011

Art museums can be desperately boring places if you’re not looting them, but every now and then you should visit one just to remind yourself why you hate civilization so much. There are a number of ways to entertain yourself while you’re there.  Have no fear, you don’t have to “get” “art” to have a good time!

1. Bring a set of paints to fix the paintings. Don’t forget your broadsword– you’ll need it if the security guards get all up in your face.

BEFORE: an old dull-ass painting by some loser in France or someplace

AFTER: a masterpiece!!


Happy Announcings

A New Delicious Web-Site

Friday, July 22nd, 2011

Welcome to the website where a barbarian can be a barbarian.  As your humble web-master, let me be the first to say “Yaaggggggghhh!”

By the way, you should buy this book– Barbarians: A Handbook for Aspiring Savages.  It’s available for now, and it will teach the aspiring atavist how to actuate their will in the most fundamentally gruesome ways!

As for the website, in the coming weeks this site will become a veritable treasure-trove of amusement for the discerning reader.

So, in the immortal words of Genghis Khan, “Smash any key to continue!”
