An 18th-century vagabond in England, exhausted and famished, came to a roadside Inn with a sign reading: 'George and the Dragon.' He knocked. The Innkeeper's wife stuck her head out a window.

    "No!" she shouted.

    "Could I have a pint of ale?"

    "No!" she shouted.

    "Could I at least sleep in your stable?"

    "No!" she shouted again.

    The vagabond said, "Might I please...?"

    "What now?" the woman screeched, not allowing him to finish.

    "D'ye suppose," he asked, "that I might have a word with George?"
