Good King James – A groaner pun … that has nothing to do with the King James of England
Once upon a time there was a king named James who reigned over a small country. He was a good and wise king, but he had one very bad habit: King James just loved animals’all kinds of animals’and he kept bringing them in the castle with him.
King James had deer and water buffalo and foxes – all sorts of game in every room of the castle. The people of the kingdom finally got fed up with King James and this over-crowded and stinky situation, and they decided that King James must be dethroned and all of the game returned to their natural habitat.
It was the first time in history that….. the reign was called on account of the game.
