Attila the Hun
There is something about the Attila the Hun probably you don’t know The story is about that Attila used to collect exotic animals that he found during his campaign. He particularly liked wild, dangerous and fearsome animals, and his best was a giant snake. He was so fond of it, it was said that he brought it with him on every expedition.
One day after from a campaign his snake lost its appetite, and soon stopped eating altogether; probably due to the stress of constantly travel and an irregular diet.
Wishing to save his terrifying pet, Attila sought help from the crones and shamans. None of them could do anything for him, until a wizened wise suggested feeding the snake only young female virgins.
Attila was satisfied with this idea, and was delighted to find that a city he had raided just happened to have a Christian convent with a convenient supply of the recommended food for his pet.
But the snake refused to eat, or even touch any of the consecrated virgins from the convent. Enraged, Attila sent for the soothsayer who advised him to have him executed.
Standing before Attila, the old man calmly said, “Before thou killest me, may thee first bring the snake and one of the women to me.”
Curious, Attila did as he asked
Then the old man took some bread and gave it to Attila.
“Now hold these in both hands,” he instructed.
Attila did so, and as soon as he did, the snake let out a terrifying hiss, and swallowed the virgin whole.
To an amazed Attila, the old man simply said,
“Thy serpent don’t want nun unless you’ve got buns, Hun.
