Greetings Most Awesome Kingdom in the Known World…. It is I, your happy go lucky Maestro De Giocco, or That Guy Phil with the 1st Photo caption contest of the Æthelmearc Gazette’s short existence. Today’s subject to be lampooned is yours truly sharing some cyber space with three of the most famous bogatyrs, Dobrynya Nikitich, Ilya Muromets and Alyosha Popovich, who are represented together in Victor Vasnetsov‘s 1898 painting Bogatyrs and a duck. The painting photoshopped was found on Wikpedia and claims to be available for sharing, and manipulation. I am doing both. Neither ducks nor Bogatyrs were harmed in the making of this.

I am thick skinned, so please have fun and let the jokes fly. Leave your captions in the comment boxes below
