Young King Arthur was ambushed and imprisoned by the monarch of a
neighboring kingdom. The monarch could have killed him, but was moved
by Arthur's youth and ideals So the monarch offered him freedom, as long
as he could answer a very difficult question. Arthur would have a year to
figure out the answer; if, after a year, he still had no answer, he would be
put to death....

The question: What do women really want?

Such a question would perplex even the most knowledgeable man, and, to
young Arthur, it seemed an impossible query. But, since it was better than
death, he accepted the monarch's proposition to have an answer by year's end.

He returned to his kingdom and began to poll everybody: the princess, the
prostitutes, the priests, the wise men, and the court jester. He spoke with
everyone, but no one could give him a satisfactory answer.

Many people advised him to consult the old witch. Only she would know
the answer. The price would be high; the witch was famous throughout the
kingdom for the exorbitant prices she charged.

The last day of the year arrived and Arthur had no alternative but to talk
to the witch. She agreed to answer the question, but he'd have to accept
her price first: The old witch wanted to marry him.

Young Arthur was horrified: She was hunchbacked and hideous, had only
one tooth, smelled like sewage, and made obscene noises. He had never
encountered such a repugnant creature.

Finally, having no real choice, he agreed. Their wedding was proclaimed,
and the witch answered Arthur's question thus: What a woman really wants
is to be in charge of her own life. Everyone instantly knew that the witch
had uttered a great truth and that Arthur's life would be spared. And so it
was. The neighboring monarch granted Arthur total freedom.

What a wedding Arthur and the witch had! Arthur was torn between relief
and anguish. He was proper as always, gentle, and courteous. The old
witch put her worst manners on display, and generally made everyone very

The hour approached. Arthur, steeling himself for a horrific experience,
entered the bedroom. But what a sight awaited him! The most beautiful
woman he'd ever seen lay before him! The astounded Arthur asked what
had happened. The beauty replied that since he had been so kind to her
when she'd appeared as a witch, she would henceforth be her horrible,
deformed self half the time, and the other half she would be her beautiful
maiden self.

Which would he want her to be during the day, and which during the
night? What a cruel question! Arthur pondered his predicament. During
the day, a beautiful woman to show off to his friends, but at night, in the
privacy of his home, an old witch? Or would he prefer having by day a
hideous witch, but by night a beautiful woman with whom to enjoy many
intimate moments?

What would you do?

What Arthur chose follows below......but don't read until you've made
your own choice.......








Noble Arthur replied that he would let her choose for herself. Upon
hearing this, she announced that she would be beautiful all the time,
because he had respected her enough to let her be in charge of her
own life.

What is the moral of this story?

The moral is:

If your woman doesn't get her own way, things are going to get ugly!

In the musical Camelot Merlin tells Arthur

"Don't worry if you don't know what a woman is thinking - they don't do it very often."   Grin

Matt 5:11  Blessed are ye when they shall revile you, and persecute you, and speak all that is evil against you, untruly, for my sake:
