Subject: RE: Puns: Give us your worst/best
a few years back, the book Clan of the Cave Bear was very popular
what people don't realize is that there is an historical basis for this book

long long ago in the kingdom of wu, there was a demibear who was the godling of this kingdom
any who wished to serve as a knight in this place was sent to the bear for his testing

the knight was to face the bear, unflinching as the bear struck a single blow
the blow was of such cunningness that any movement on the part of the knight proved fatal

of course many tried, and most failed the test, the bear being of horrible mien

there was a consolation prize...
to the family of the failed knight, the bear sent one of his prize pekinese the day after the test...

which goes to show...
on the day after a horrible knight, nothing's better than the dog of the bear that hit him
