Let´s hope his presidency will be legendary as the reign of Arthur (but with out Mordred and Lancelot º_O)

Sir Thomas Malory describes the Knights' code of chivalry as:

- To never do outrage nor murder
- Always to flee treason
- To by no means be cruel but to give mercy unto him who asks for mercy
- To always do ladies, gentlewomen and widows succor
- To never force ladies, gentlewomen or widows
- Not to take up battles in wrongful quarrels for love or worldly goods


There is a lot to be said about all of that, especially for the last part about which one could speak at long length.

As for Lancelot, well, he still remains one of the most famous knights of the round table, an inspirational figure by all accounts, and let us not forget that it is his son, Galahad, who ultimately achieved the Grail. But I understand Odile's meaning ;-) And talking of which, Dr. Zaius, I have talked with Goldberry, about you know what, and all is forgiven.

All water under the bridges, now:

This is either a time for celebration, or, for some, a time of sorrow (I understand that both you and Ms. Gregarious are still sad about losing your bid for the presidency), an opportunity (or an excuse) for a drink, one way or another, the way I see it! So, hey, maybe I'll get to run into you and Ms. Gregarious at the Wulfshead.

The bartender says he'd have sent Ms. Gregarious a membership but she hasn't left any address (any kind of email) for the management to do so. There are other means of course, but there are rules, and the bartender, you know, he sticks by the old codes of chivalry---he can be funny that way, very much old school and all that.

Same thing to you, Odile: Come over and drop by for a drink if you have a chance. The club prides itself on having anything you can name on tap.

Not to take up battles in wrongful quarrels for love or worldly goods

I guess that line was left out of Dumb-ya's copy of Mallory.

Oh, sorry. I just inferred the ex-president could read.

I think his biggest problem is, That's the Sword of Damocles.

Can't wait to see how he swings it!

It really feels that way, doesn't it? Obama was the only one who could pull Excaliber from the stone.

Signifying by divine providence that he, Barack, was to carry Excalibur.

That is why he is our King. I mean, President.

Um, I hope you aren't thinking of Biden as Merlin. I'm going to have to draw the line there sir!

Odile: I sure hope so! :o)

Tom Bombadil: To always "do ladies"? Sounds like a succor puch! Thank you for the awesome research. I am afraid that I was unable to find the dessert menu at the Wulfshead, but I shall certainly return for further libations.

JustJoeP: I was so happy! :o)

GETkristiLOVE: Thanks!

Pidomon: Jeepers! Thanks.

Lisa: Gosh! Thanks.

Darius Whiteplume: Oh, come on! the ex-president can read. He read a comic book once!

MichaelBains: Very well said.

Mauigirl: It does feel that way. Like it's Camelot!

Comrade Kevin: King, President... What's the difference! ;o)

MWB: Oh, you and your Biden fixation. Get over it, dude! It's a new world now!

Darkblack: That's not what you told her when you were 17.

Dguzman: I think that Obama will need a light saber for that!

Michael Hart: Hee hee! I actually didn't know that. :o)

Utah Savage: Everyone is so nice, including you. :o)
