Was once saying at a friend house while he was away, I was a weekend viking re-enactor so there was a sword by my bed. also slept naked.
One night I hear a sound downstairs and pick up the sword and creep down the stairs.
The back door was glass and I could see someone bent down trying to pick the lock.
So I jumped out waving the sword and screaming yaaaahhhhhhh.
He screamed dropped the stuff and legged it.
I wonder if he ever told anyone of the time a large naked lady wielding a sword scared him away

Actually, this story reminded me of a Dirty Harry quote, in this video, at the 2:15 point:

You'll need to turn up the volume a bit to hear it. BTW, NSFW, or when kids are around.
