I do wonder about that sword, Excalibur, that was in that rock that was pulled by that kid. It’s an amazing story, isn’t it? I wonder how many dudes had a crack at pulling that sword before the boy got it out. I reckon it was a fair few dudes. They must’ve been lining up to have a crack. You pull it, you get to run England. How cool would that be? You’d have dudes from everywhere having a crack. Sure the king of France gave it a go. Probably the closest he’d get to conquering England, haha! Although, there is that little issue with William the Conqueror. A dude called William who, err, conquered England back in 1000 a.d. This seems to be turning into a history lesson so let’s return to the sword in the stone, shall we? The problem with that sword in the stone is the fact that all these guys failed. As a man you don’t really want to fail this kind of strength test. You just look like a dick in front of all the other knights, squires and guards. Little Excalibur humour right there, wink, wink. And what about the last guy to try and pull the sword from the stone before the kid? You would look right a complete dick. Do not pass go, do not get 200 bucks, go directly to Dickheadville. Your mates would be like, “HAHA! DUUUDE! YOU GOT OWNED BY A TEN-YEAR-OLD!” Not cool. Not cool at all.
It’s often been made fun of, but the sword in the stone is a great method to picking governance, isn’t it? How many of today’s leaders would still be there if they had to pull some tart's sword out of some rock? I’m sure a few would be looking for new jobs. A politician who wants to be the new American president just has to pull a sword from the stone. No need to raise millions of dollars for an election campaign. All that politician has to do is pull off a feat of strength. How hard can that be? Please excuse me whilst I laugh uncontrollably.
A prime minister is hated by his colleagues and they want to get rid of him through a no confidence vote and he’s like, “But, I got this.” He shows them Excalibur. “Did you pull it from the stone? No? Then sit down and shut up before I stab you with the sword of governance!” I suppose a no confidence vote would be like the sitting reigning leader puts the sword back onto the stone and the challenger tries to lift it from the stone. If he fails, then the leader gets to kill him? Yeah, that sounds completely fair, doesn’t it?
Well that’s enough for now. Sure we’ve expunged the Excalibur issue as much as we need to, if you ask me. Check out the Duckman blogs. I was checking it out the other day. He’s starting to put up some amusing memes, so I highly suggest and recommend you check it out. We have a good and extensive archive of blogs that you can access on the site, so if you’ve missed a couple, check them out also.
See you next time. Ciao.
