King Arthur and the Witch
 Young King Arthur was ambushed and imprisoned by the monarch of a
 neighboring kingdom. The monarch could have killed him but was moved
 by Arthur's youth and ideals. So, the monarch offered him his freedom,
 as long as he could answer a very difficult question. Arthur would
 have a year to figure out the answer and, if after a year, he still had no answer, he would be put to death.

 The question?...What do women really want? Such a question would
 perplex even the most knowledgeable man, and to young Arthur, it
 seemed an impossible query. But, since it was better than death, he
 accepted the monarch's proposition to have an answer by year's end.

 He returned to his kingdom and began to poll everyone: the princess,
 the priests, the wise men and even the court jester. He spoke with
 everyone, but no one could give him a satisfactory answer.

 Many people advised him to consult the old witch, for only she would
 have the answer.

 But the price would be high; as the witch was famous throughout the
 kingdom for the exorbitant prices she charged.

 The last day of the year arrived and Arthur had no choice but to talk
 to the witch. She agreed to answer the question, but he would have to
 agree to her price first.

 The old witch wanted to marry Sir Lancelot, the most noble of the
 Knights of the Round Table and Arthur's closest friend!

 Young Arthur was horrified. She was hunchbacked and hideous, had only
 one tooth, smelled like sewage, made obscene noises, etc. He had never
 encountered such a repugnant creature in all his life.

 He refused to force his friend to marry her and endure such a terrible
 burden; but Lancelot, learning of the proposal, spoke with Arthur

 He said nothing was too big of a sacrifice compared to Arthur's life
 and the preservation of the Round Table.

 Hence, a wedding was proclaimed and the witch answered Arthur's
 question thus:

 What a woman really wants, she answered....is to be in charge of her
 own life.

 Everyone in the kingdom instantly knew that the witch had uttered a
 great truth and that Arthur's life would be spared.

 And so it was, the neighboring monarch granted Arthur his freedom and
 Lancelot and the witch had a wonderful wedding.

 The honeymoon hour approached and Lancelot, steeling himself for a
 horrific experience, entered the bedroom. But, what a sight awaited
 him. The most beautiful woman he had ever seen lay before him on the
 bed. The astounded Lancelot asked what had happened

 The beauty replied that since he had been so kind to her when she
 appeared as a witch, she would henceforth, be her horrible deformed
 self only half the time and the beautiful maiden the other half.

 Which would he prefer? Beautiful during the day....or night?

 Lancelot pondered the predicament. During the day, a beautiful woman
 to show off to his friends, but at night, in the privacy of his
 castle, an old witch? Or, would he prefer having a hideous witch
 during the day, but by night, a beautiful woman for him to enjoy
 wondrous intimate moments?

 What would YOU do?

 What Lancelot chose is below.....

 ....make YOUR choice before you scroll down, answer below.......

 Noble Sir Lancelot said that he would allow HER to make the choice

 Upon hearing this, she announced that she would be beautiful all the
 time because he had respected her enough to let her be in charge of
 her own life.

 Now....what is the moral to this story?

 The moral is.....
 If you don't let a woman have her own way....
 things are gonna get ugly
