Conan Got Nothing on Genghis Khan

I think Conan was channeling the Mongolian terror in one of his more famous lines from the movie. Here's the great Khan himself:

"Man's greatest good fortune is to chase and defeat his enemy, seize his total possessions, leave his married women weeping and wailing, ride his gelding, use his women as a nightshirt and support, gazing upon and kissing their rosy breasts, sucking their lips which are as sweet as the berries of their breasts."

And for memories' sake, the famous Conan line:

For Genghis, it wasn't good enough to hear the lamentation. No, he had to use the women as a nightshirt. That's hardcore.

And his men put meat between their horses and saddles to "cook" it. Yeah, the Mongol life was the good life!

Makes me wonder if they'd like Genghis Grill...
