Vlad the Impaler used this method against the invading Muslims as a "taste of their own medicine" due to the fact that impaling was a method used by the Muslims at first.

Bullshit. He introduced this to Saxon merchants and their families on wallachia.

That image has it all wrong. The pointy side goes in the ground. The rounded end goes up the rectum, slowly along the inside of the spinal column, and out the back of the neck. The whole point was to keep them alive as long as possible.

You also miss the point that Tepes did this mostly to his own people, and German and Hungarian immigrants, men women and children, before the Ottomans invaded. He's not some Christian hero of Eastern Europe, he was just a fucking psycho that switched support between the Muslims and Hungarians as needed in his own dynastic struggle.
