We can’t fix the bouts all the time, so sometimes the dragon wins.  I love the cartoon with the Dragon licking off the Knight’s sword and the armor everywhere.  Remember the saying, “There be dragons.”  They like you crunchy with fries and ketchup on the side.

I am imagining Monty Python and the Holy Grail.  King Arthur comes up to the bridge.  The Dragon greets him, with “None shall pass,” in a rough English North Country accent.

“Right,” Arthur cries and draws the sword.  The voice of the dragon suddenly changes to Eddie Murphy.  “Oh man’ you think you can take me with that jive ass sword?  I’m having Shish Kebab tonight!”

King Arthur lasts all of about ten seconds.  The Dragon can’t enjoy his Shish Kebab, cause he likes his humans with Ketchup and Fries.  What does he do?  Heads to McDonalds.

“We don’t serve dragons,” the manager said.

The Manager is burned to a crisp, the Golden Arches melted and the Dragon eats all the fries and ketchup and the skewered meat on a Shish Kebab stick, I mean sword.

Moral of story.  Beware.  Sometimes, the dragon wins.


About tucsonmike

I am originally from Brooklyn, New York and now live in Tucson, Arizona. I have discovered a passion for writing. I have five books out now, with a sixth on the way. Take a look @ my book list: The Search for Livingstone An Affair of the Heart The Search for Otzi Griffith Justice in Space. Moriarty The Life and Times of a Criminal Genius Available now on Smashwords - Amazon and Barnes and Noble As to not bore my public with just "Buy my book," I am also interested in baseball, the outdoors, art, architecture, technology, the human mind and DNA. I learned Ashkenazi Jews, of which I am one, have to lowest rate of Alzheimer's in the world. Therefore, I treat my brain as a muscle needing a workout. I enjoy good food, flirtation, beautiful women (I am happily married for thirty years), so just flirting ;) I was considered autistic when I was young, trying to figure out if I have a mild form of Aspergers and learning from that. That is for future posts. You can also see I love history. Enjoy my sarcastic silly look at the world, and making History more interesting than a textbook.
