The Mightiest Weapon

Once upon a time, in a land far, far away, there was a King who was growing bored after a feast one night. He decided to hold a contest of who at the court had the mightiest “weapon”.

The first knight stood up and proclaimed that he had the mightiest weapon. He pulled down his pants and tied a 5-pound weight around himself, but the weapon did rise.
The crowds cheered, the women swooned, the children waved multi-colored banners and the minstrels played appropriate music.

Another knight stood up and called out that he had the mightiest weapon. He dropped his pants and tied a 10-pound weight to himself, yet the weapon rose.
The crowds cheered, the women swooned, the children waved multi-colored banners and the minstrels played appropriate music.

After several more knights tried to prove their superiority, successively tying heavier weights, the king finally spoke out. “I have the mightiest weapon of all.” He dropped his pants and tied not a 10, not 20, not even 30, but a 60-pound weight to himself. The weapon doth rose.
The crowds cheered, the women swooned, the children waved multi-colored banners and the minstrels played “God Save the Queen”.
