Okay, so the professor was having loads and loads of thinks.
That’s never a bad thing, see. Contrary to popular belief, a thinking professor isn’t a dangerous one; a thinking professor is just lethargic.
Anyways, I was having thinks on Jousting.
See, here’s the thing: Why isn’t Jousting done today?
I mean, it might be a little dangerous, but every Joust I’ve seen, it seems that the chaps are having devilishly good fun, doesn’t it?
Why do you suppose it’s not a sport today? Like Football, Tennis, Soccer, Basketball, Mitt-Throwing, Sneaker Racing, and Dominoes?
This professor thought of three reasons.
(1) Probably because they don’t make armor like they used to. I mean, let’s be honest, if you don’t have good armor, you shouldn’t Joust. That’s just silly.
(2) The horses probably don’t like it, anymore. This picture told me that:
(3) Hector isn’t around to promote it.
Dadblame Achilles! If he hadn’t killed Hector, we’d still be Jousting today.
So, yeah, all bad reasons. Are you with me to start this sport up again?
