The Captive (II)

Some of us may understand this tale, fully. It was posted on the groaners listserv. The author is unknown.

The bad and ugly king had a beautiful girl as a captive. Though her beauty shone like a thousand moons (and her moon wasn’t so bad either), the dress she was forced to wear was very unbecoming.

She waited day and night, looking out with hope out the dungeon window, searching for the knight who would free her. However, every knight was scared away by her dress, which, as I’ve said before, was very ugly.

She was crying in hopelessness when the evil king jeered, “See, I told you no knight would rescue a damsel in this dress!!!”
