In the heat of the knight…

July 3, 2007

This must be what they call an armored vehicle. And, unless they are shooting the long-awaited sequel to A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court, then I presume we’re seeing yet another new, trendy weight-loss program in the making.******Here’s how it would work: You go to Spain, which isn’t exactly known for its mild summers, you put on a suit of armor, and then head out on the highway on a motorcycle, so the merciless sun can turn you into a raisin. Don’t forget to open the little spigot at on your helmet, so the steam has someplace to go.***
