a Beowulf funny

that appeared in my e-mail inbox this morning from the WTM Secular group...
Beowulf and Godsylla

MeanehwFl, baccat meaddehFle, monstFr lurccen;
Fulle few too many drincce, hie luccen for fyht.
wen Hreorfneorhtxhwr, son of HrwFrowzheororthwl,
Esccen Fwful jeork to steop outsyd.
yhud! Bashe! Crasch! Beoom! we bigge gye
Eallum his bon brak, byt his nose offe;
Wicced Godsylla wFld on his asse.
MonstFr moppe fleor wyz eallum men in hFlle.
Beowulf in bacceroome fonecall bamaccen wFs;
Hearen sond of ruccus sFd, "HwFt xe helle?"
Graben sheold strang ond swich-blFd scharp
Stond feorth to fyht xe grimlic foe.
"Me," Godsylla sFd, "mac xe minsemete."
Heoro cwyc geten heold wiz fFmed half-nelson
Ond flyng him lic frisbe bac to fen
Beowulf belly up to meaddehFle bar,
SFd, "Ne foe beaten mie fFrsom cung-fu."
Eorderen cocca-cohla yce-coeld, xe reol zyng.
