"Like boxing with crowbars"

A major discussion popped up recently on Reddit about a photo of two SCA fighters in a lonely parking garage. Most fun are the comments of readers who don't quite know what to make of the duo.

Many commenters assume the fighters are LARPers (Live Action Role Players), but some are members, or at least passingly acquainted with the SCA:

"They belong to the SCA (Society for Creative Anachronism.) Full contact Medieval fighting with rattan weapons. It's like boxing with crowbars. Lots of fun."
