Everybody likes the French

This is from Bernard Cornwell’s Harlequin, and it amused me.

‘Arrows,’ Will Skeat said … ‘Don’t waste them.’ He tossed the sheaves one by one to the archers. ‘It looks like a lot, but most of you godforsaken lepers have never been in a proper battle and battles swallow arrows like whores swallowing – Good morning, Father Hobbe!’

‘You’ll spare me a sheaf, Will?’

‘Don’t waste it on sinners, father,’ Will said, throwing a bundle to the priest. ‘Kill some God-fearing Frenchmen.’

‘There’s no such thing, Will. They’re all the spawn of Satan.’
