News, but not the serious kind
Got any metal under your armor, bud?
“Put down your lance, Vance!”
This just looks too good to be true. Photos of presidential security giving the full metal detector treatment to knights wearing enough scrap iron to build a Hummer? Is there a fear of yet another deadly broadsword attack, like we’ve seen so many times recently?
“Okay, put your farthings, talismans and grails in the bin…”
“Sir, please lay your battle ax flat on the conveyor belt…”
“Ma’am, use the Damsel line. It’s faster, unless you have a chastity belt.”
