Knight, wider


When I think of a knight, I think of a medieval warrior ahorseback with a sword or lance bravely fighting against tyranny in the name of his majestic king. An honorable and trustworthy young lad jousting for the honor of a lady. Or sometimes a souped-up Mustang or Trans-Am but never an overweight old man with a checkered history, questionable morals and faulty politics. But that all changed this week when it was announced that Ted Kennedy would receive an honorary knighthood. What foe is he going to battle against? The all-you-can-eat buffet? We're gonna need extra links in the chainmail suit for this one! He will slay the dragon but then he's gonna barbecue it and leave the princess in the moat to drown. Feel free to print out this page and color the knight in Kennedy's honor. Yellow would be appropriate.

I sure hope there's not a moat near the castle...splash!

Hey, wasn't Ted Knight in Caddyshack?

BTW, the Teddy we're interested in is the little dog, not the Senator!

When I think of Lance, I envision Anthony Edwards' character who plays John Cusack's buddy in The Sure Thing.

Shirley, I joust.

First of all! Fighting a buffet can be a vicious and daring test of ones manhood! As a charter member of the B.F.A. (Buffet Fighters Assoc.), We alone know the hazards of the classic 'pitch til you win" battle.
Secondly, I will say that we did away with armor due to the famous "Golden Corral" incident of '03. We discovered Kevlar has velcro for expansion. (2 birds/one stone thing.)
Lastly do not associate our esteemed brotherhood with such the like as Mr Kennedy!

Yours Sincerely!

And what kind of steed would Sir Edward ride?

Why, a Sea Horse, of course...

Although, its rumoured he's had several mounts...
