I regret: my sins in this life.
I am not: as tall as that statue in Winchester.
I dance: but only after enough mead.

I don't know if you had a specific Charles of the Franks in mind, thus I decided to play along.

Dude--Guþrun said he's been having some problems with his high-speed service...

Great meme, though!
