Death suggested by Blueberry
"Death awaits you with Huge Sharp Pointy Teeth"
These are the words of Tim the Enchanter, who warns Arthur and his party that those who seek the final words of Joseph of Arimethea in the Cave of Caerbannog, must first face a foe more terrifying than a dinner engagement with Hannibal Lecter.
However, Arthur has assembled the finest and bravest knights in all of Britain (with the exception of brave, brave Sir Robin) and so will not be so easily swayed from his course. They arrive at the entrance to the cave, and find the floor outside scattered with the bones of hundreds of knights. However, there is no sign of any monster, and so they prepare to enter the cave.
"Too late!" cries Tim the Enchanter, and he points to the entrance. THe knights look to where Tim is pointing, but there is nothing there apart from a small, fluffy rabbit. Realising that this was the monster that Tim has alluded to, the knights of the round table are exasperated that they got themselves worked up for nothing. Even Sir Robin feels brave enough to say "What does he do? Nibble yer bum?"
Arthur soon tires of all this nonsense and calls in Sir Bors to dispatch the rabbit. Within moments he is dead. The rest of the round table knights join in and, predictably, there is carnage with the knights beating a hasty retreat.
All seems lost, until Arthur remembers Brother Maynard and the Holy hand grenade of Antioch; a holy relic of devastating power. After reciting some suitably mad piece of scripture as to its usage, Brother Maynard hands the relic to Arthur who pulls out the pin and counts to 5 (I mean 3) before throwing the grenade at the rabbit. It proves to be a resounding success. The rabbit is dead, it is an ex-rabbit, a stiff, gone to the choir invisible, bereft of life etc.
