...much of whcih bears a striking resemblance to the Bayeux Tapestry. Could be used for the American version. [DrCurry, Nov 19 2005]


       Comes complete with a insulated eye patch.

       //famous French victory over the English// Famous only for its uniqueness.
[Goes off to imagine a scarf 7metres long, but only 5cm wide...]

       Come to think about this, I certainly wouldn't wear this.Give me a scarf depicting the battle of Waterloo that I may wear.

       Recreate the whole thing in cartoon format with several rows of panels, and you can fit it onto a scarf 2m long by, say, 20cm wide? Surpised Past Times haven't rushed this out to their shops already.

       ties n scarves are quite different. Nice link though [murdoch]   

       [copro] 5cm wide means you can wrap it round lots and lots of times to use up the full 7m length. Any wider and it just wouldn't work so well.

       But shouldn't it be a tapestry, not wool, or at least cross-stitch or something?
DrCurry, Nov 16 2005

       ... and created by nimble-fingered french women too.
jonthegeologist, Nov 16 2005

       [Ian] - What?
wagster, Nov 17 2005

       gawd, the suspense is killing me...
po, Nov 17 2005

       [Ian], we're all ready and waiting ...
jonthegeologist, Nov 18 2005

       Put your glad-rags on? Or is it the reference to Halley's Comet on the Tapestry?
coprocephalous, Nov 18 2005

       hey Copro! that's smart.
po, Nov 18 2005

       [po] category corrected.
jonthegeologist, Nov 18 2005

       //hey Copro! that's smart// My new jacket? Thank you - glad you like it.

       Now, when I was just a little boy,
Standin’ to my daddy’s knee,
My poppa said, son, don’t let the man get you
Do what he done to me...
wagster, Nov 18 2005

       This scarf would go well with my Damien Hurst "The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living" shark shaped shoes...

       [IT] ditto (except it was a rather lovely autumn day) - easily one of the best historical attractions in France. The rest of the exhibition (IMHO) really sets the scene and tells the story, and then to *see* something that is the best part of a millennium old is pretty mind-blowing.
coprocephalous, Nov 18 2005

       It'd make expensive wallpaper.
wagster, Nov 18 2005

       Tragically, I don't think it would sell well here in America. My suggestion would be to change it to '1980 Winter Olymipc Hockey' scarf for sales in the USA.
sleeka, Nov 18 2005

       Actually, I was thinking those Indian story cloths (quite forgotten what they're properly called).
