Reginald burst into the hall with a crash of great doors against the wall. “Sire,” he panted, “the Princess has been taken!”
The King looked up with a start. “Bravo, then! A right good rogering is just what's needed sometimes. I know when I'm stressed-“
“No, sire, your Magnifiencary,” Reginald interrupted, earning an unwelcome narrowing of the eyes from the King that spoke of future beheading. “It's not, that, uh- well, she's been kidnapped, most foul!”
There was a silence. It was not a 'shocked' silence, per se, but more of a 'bored, waiting' silence.

“Which Princess was it, Reginald,” asked Leo the Brave, “Caroline, what with the great beak of a nose? Riddence and rubbish.”
“Good sir!” spake the King, “Princess Caroline has many fine qualities, We are sure- wait, which Princess Caroline do you speak of, is that the one with the funny foot?”
“Right, sire,” added Johns, “the one that looks like a badger.”
“I'd say a stoat,” Leo pondered the ceiling.
“Isn't that a potato, of a sort?” asked the King.
There was an uncomfortable sort of silence as the gathered people wondered how to avoid correcting His Majesty, and many floor tiles received deep scrutiny.
