Ye olde aloha,
(He rides into the town square, the hooves of his huge, white horse click-clacking off the dome-shaped cobblestones. Jumping from the sweating steed, he gathers the waiting townsfolk around him.)
“Greetings to you, my Lords, Ladies, squires, fair maidens, serfs – and Gary.
I stand before you, aye, a little taller today, the recipient of a new honour...”...He pauses to snap his fingers.
Eight manly men in brown tights and powdered wigs break rank from the crowd and form a 16th century version of ye flashe mob.
Using those long, trumpet things with banner ads hanging down (the only one he can read is for White Castle) the musicians play a wee melody of something triumphant-sounding.He holds up one bejeweled hand – then lowers it to power off ye new tablet. The empty hand rises again. The trumpeters trumpet no more and slither back into the crowd - as if they were never there!
“Ye friends, I am now a Knight of the Cosmic Table.”
He waves down a smattering round of applause from the open windows of Cavanaugh's Tavern.
“Sir David Powers King himself bestowed this honour upon me during this past week of the Summer Solstice.
Now, I must impeach upon you my desire that ye please visit Sir David's Cosmic Laire to hear tell a mighty interview between his Sir-ness and I upon the ceremonious announcement of my Knighting.”(Jumps back on weary steed, who looks up as if to say, my gosh, Sir Chunky, I hope we’re going to Subway.)
“Hi-Ho, Zinc Silver! Away!”
