avoiding all the “blue” puns

queen of the scotbuggs

Is there anything better than woad? I submit to you there is not.


A female bugg sits on a throne, while another bugg stands by, crown at the ready. Several other heavily-armed and -woaded buggs stand at the foot of the throne, waving swords and axes, and sometimes both, in high spirits.

The text reads: “Munch 25, 1308: Roberta the Bugg is proclaimed Queen of ScotBugg. Every year afterwards, Buggs of the region still paint themselves blue.”
