      Another list of mine started by discussing the untranslatability of "Hwaet!"
      and wound up composing alternate openings in various styles:

      ==============================

      Arnold:

      Fahntahstick! Dese Dane guys with spears ...

      ==============================
      Freud:

      Think! Danespears, doubtless sexual
      Symbols, sometimes merely slice monsters

      =============================================

      For the Christmas season:

      "Ho, ho, ho! The jolly, holly Spear Danes and their reindeer princes......."

      ==============================
      Rap (I guess)

      Where y'at! How bout dem spear-Danes, Cap?

      ==============================
      Ole South:

      Hey! Y'all know how it wuz with the Gar-Danes, back yonder in the good old
      days,
      Down South, when men wuz men and monsters wuz monsters?

      ==============================

      And then, of course, there's BEOWATCH, by our very own Society members Carl
      Hostetter and Arden Smith. http://www.mythsoc.org/beowatch.html
