The king took off his shoe and started pounding it on the table. “I am sick and tired of this jumble of patchwork laws that parliament has tried to foist upon my monarchy,” he bellowed. “There is no antecedent that can justify this assault on the crown!”
“You must calm down, my dear,” the queen said. “I’ve brought you a glass of warm milk to help you relax.”
The queen stood up, winked at the king, turned her back on him, and asked, “My lord, can you help me with my zipper? And then, if you follow me to my boudoir, I’ll offer you a respite from the strife and chaos, my sire, that will make you feel quite upbeat and help you release all of your tension.”
