A old knight was gnawing on a bit of rhubarb. He was writing a rhyme about a whale and a of wheat. He wasn't a great poet; Shakespeare could rest easy. He was, if truth be told, a little . Halfway through his mind numbing ode to Orca he had a for salmon. He headed to the river and attempted to its murky depths with a makeshift fishing rod - i.e. a stick and a length of string with a hook at the end. While he was waiting on his lunch he decided to himself a pair of knickers. He was so in his creation that he didn't notice the white rhino hurtling towards him until it him over!!! Our hero wrestled his sword from its scabbard and took a at the departing beast. In the knight's haste he whirled around, lost his balance and his wrist. He didn't get his fish but his tale about the one that got earned him many suppers.
