Introducing the book-A.k.a. Medieval Helpdesk

Have you ever gone to a card store and found yourself laughing out loud after reading several dozen cards? Well I'm never sure if the card makes me laugh or just the silly mood I get in after reading so many one after another. This video made me laugh out loud- was it the laugh track, watching so many in a row or is it really just that funny? In any case, hope you enjoy!

This video makes fun of moderns newbie computer users by illustrating - in a way fully understandable to them - how silly some of their questions are by creating a similar problem in the Middle Ages.

It's from a show called Øystein & Meg (Øystein & I) produced by the Norwegian Broadcasting television channel (NRK) in 2001. The spoken language is Norwegian. It's written by Knut Nærum and performed by Øystein Bache and Rune Gokstad.
