Battle Royale at Medieval Festival Includes Excellent Trash Talk



If you can't wait for Game of Thrones to return, the Medieval Festival at Fort Tryon Park on Sunday was a close substitute, minus the random boobs.

"Manhattan's Fort Tryon Park is transformed into a medieval market town decorated with bright banners and processional flags," was the description afforded by the Washington Heights and Inwood Development Corporation, organizers of the annual festival.

The video above shows a battle royale that includes one of the hottest burns you'll witness all week.
