Everyone Give a Round of Applause for “Skyrim Mom”

In a refreshing divergence from the flood of “arrow to the knee” jokes, there are new Skyrim-themed shenanigans on the Internet that have nothing to do with mods or flying dead animals. Ladies and gentlemen: we give you SkyrimMom.

Over at Bethesda, community manager Nick Breckon has given his 65-year-old mother a copy of Skyrim and let her run free. The Twitter account is a collection of what she says to him as she plays, and there are some real gems in there.

I recommend checking it out for a laugh. Also, the thought of a mom playing Skyrim and intently collecting thistles is kind of adorable.
