"Medieval Helpdesk"

Technological advances have posed problems for ages.

Here's a sketch from the Norwegian Broadcasting television channel program "Cystein og meg." While the production value may leave a little to be desired, the premise is pretty good. We'd like a sequel where the befuddled reader winds up calling a Dell 1-800 number in El Salvador for a refresher course.

While we're getting medieval, here's one of our favorite comedy sketches based in the period: "Cops in Medieval Times," from "The Ben Stiller Show." For what it's worth, we had that "touch of the plague" a couple of weeks ago.
