Drink Wine From My Skull
“The mafia could not kill me, but the media and the culture can drink wine from my skull.”
Patriotic Front MP Slavi Binev upon tendering his resignation as head of the Parliamentary Committee For Media and Culture.
Binev is probably referring to the Battle of Pliska in 811, when Bulgaria's Khan Krum virtually wiped out the the Byzantine forces and later used Emperor Nicephorus I Genik's skull as a cup for wine-drinking.
