Knight In Rusty Armour


This, and "Lady Godiva" were considered very risque for junior high in 1966. We were not allowed to play them at dances.

"Every suit of armor has a kink, chainmail pants that miss a link"?

There are probably some hidden meanings here, and I too much a Galahad to notice.

Chainmail pants with a missing link. A breach in the britches that allows the knight to get his penis out.

Grim said...

Have to be more than one missing link for that. A man might need a bare patch like Smaug’s.

What a fuss over a song that was explicitly about his bride, too.

I never had heard it before, though. I wrote a poem once about a knight in red-rust armor; but there was no relation, and mine was no bawdy song.

The story I'd heard about how he got the name was that he'd been knitting his chain mail from galvanized wire, and had a small section made up for an unfinished suit when he gallantly offered to assist a lady trying to scrub some crud from a pot. All seemed well, but the galvanized coating was gone and the lack eventually manifested in the final outfit.

It should be understood that SCA wasn't famous for letting facts get in the way of a good story.
