The first thing that came to my mind...

"Follow. But! Follow only if ye be men of valor! For the entrance to this cave is guarded by a creature so foul, so cruel, that no man yet has fought with it... and lived! BONES of full fifty men lie *strewn* about its lair! So! Brave knights! If you do doubt your courage or your strength, come no further, for death awaits you all with nasty, big, pointy teeth..."

Here's a twist... not a joke but rather a riddle:

A farmer died leaving in his will 17 horses to be divided among his 3 sons...

1/2 to the eldest,
1/3 to the middle son, and
1/9 to the youngest...

The probate court was left struggling with the math..

After much discussion they asked the advice of a very wise elderly neighbor farmer who solved the problem of how each of the sons should get the correct number of horses....

(Give it a try to answer... if someone cries uncle I will post the answer.)

I’m guessing that the farmer brought a horse with him, making 18 horses.

oldest son got half (9)
middle son got 1/3 (6)
youngest got 1/9 (2)

total is 9+6+2 = 17.

Farmer got his horse back
