    * let her decide (joke) [females will like :P, so will men)

    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 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 everyone,
    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 to
    the witch. She agreed to answer the question, but he would have to 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 sewerage, 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 Arthur'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 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 day....or night? Lancelot
    pondered the predicament. During the day, a beautiful woman to show off to
    his friends, but at night, in the privacy of his castle, an old witch? Or,
    would he prefer having a hideous witch during the day, but by night, a
    beautiful woman for him to enjoy wondrous, intimate moments?

    What would YOU do?

    What Lancelot chose is below.

    BUT....make YOUR choice before you scroll down below.

    Noble Lancelot, knowing the answer the witch gave Arthur to his question,
    said that he would allow HER to make the choice 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.

    Now....what is the moral to this story?

    The moral is..... If you don't let a woman have her own way.... things are
    going to get ugly.
