> Young King Arthur was ambushed and imprisoned by the monarch [a queen?] of a
> neighboring kingdom. The monarch could have killed him but was moved
> by Arthur’s youth and ideals. So, the monarch offered him his freedom,
> as long as he could answer a very difficult question. Arthur would
> have a year to figure out the answer and, 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 everyone: the princess,
> the priests, the wise men and even the court jester. He spoke with
> every one, but no one could give him a satisfactory answer.
>
> Many people advised him to consult the old witch, for only she would
> have the answer.
>
> But the price would be high; as the witch was famous throughout the
> kingdom for the exorbitant prices she charged.
>
> The last day of the year arrived and Arthur had no choice but to talk

> agree to her price first.
>
> The old witch wanted to marry Sir Lancelot, the most noble of the
> Knights of the Round Table and Arthur’s closest friend!
>
> Young Arthur was horrified. She was hunchbacked and hideous, had only
> one tooth, smelled like sewage, made obscene noises, etc. He had
> never encountered such a repugnant creature in all his life.
>
> He refused to force his friend to marry her and endure such a terrible
> burden; but Lancelot, learning of the proposal, spoke with Arthur.
>
> He said nothing was too big of a sacrifice compared to Arthu r 's life
> and the preservation of the Round Table.
>
> Hence, a wedding was proclaimed and the witch answered Arthur’s question thus:
>
> What a woman really wants, she answered.is to be in charge of her own life.
>
> Everyone in the kingdom 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 his freedom and
> Lancelot and the witch had a wonderful wedding.
>
> The honeymoon hour approached and Lancelot, steeling himself for a
> horrific experience, entered the bedroom. But, what a sight awaited
> him. The most beautiful woman he had ever seen lay before him on the
> bed. The astounded Lancelot asked what had happened
>
> The beauty replied that since he had been so kind to her when she
> appeared as a witch, she would henceforth, be her horrible deformed
> self only half the time and the beautiful maiden the other half.
>
> Which would he prefer? Beautiful during the da y….or night?

> Lancelot pondered the predicament. During the day, a beautiful woman
> to show off to his friends, but at night, in t he privacy of his
> castle, an old witch? Or, would he prefer having a hideous witch

> What would YOU do?
