Fear Our Offal Cries!

I’ve just finished reading Between the Rivers, by Harry Turtledove. For more detail, follow the link, but it follows the fortunes of a particular resident of the city of Gibil who, among other achievements, manages to set off a war between his city and the neighbouring one.

Maybe it’s just me but I don’t think, if I were a native of Gibil, that I would be inspired to acts of bravery  in the field by the war cry: Forward the Giblut! Forward the Giblut!
