Sir Launcelot on the problems posed by the rarity of real dragons

"One understands that a man does not wish to come home to his castle of an evening and say to his lady, 'God wot I had the fight of me life today--no sooner had I fewtered my spear than the monster was upon me,' and have the lady say, 'But, good Sir Giles' or 'But, good Sir Hebes,' and then have the awful question come, 'What manner of monster was it?' and be forced to reply, 'Lizard.'"
--Donald Barthelme, The King
