The Duke of Denmark and Doris the Dragon


The Slightly eccentric A to Z blogging adventure of unknown and rather unpopular Modern fairy tales
2013


D The Duke of Denmark and Doris the Dragon

Down in the depths of a dark dungeon in the Duke of Denmark’s Doman lived a rather dramatiC and delightful dragon called Doris; Doris the dragon liked to drink Diesel out of a dustbin with a draw (sorry straw). Each night the Duke would demand a knight descended into the dark dungeons to destroy the dragon called Doris; Doris the Dragon would dismember the duke’s knight, peel off the metal armour and eat the knight, thinking the Duke is very kind to send her tins of food every evening about dusk.  Then one evening Dick the village dimwit was dispatched to deal with Doris the Dragon and although he did not wish to descend the depths to the dark dungeon, he did.




He did not have armour and was rather distressed when he met Doris the Dragon who said “Hello do not delve in the dark damp doorways come and have some tinned meat and doughnuts”, Dick the Dimwit said “but its Dave the Dukes knight” and Doris the Dragon realised she had made a bit of a mistake AH DAMN said Doris as she devoured another bit of Dave. So she dictated a letter apologising for any distress and said she would dance at the Duke of Denmark’s palace and devote herself to the dukes defence as she had accidently devoured all the tinned meat (sorry Knights).
And they all lived happily ever after

  1. I have not been reading your blogs so far Rob because I am saving them up. I do enjoy your posts and am relishing your fairy tales.
    I am going to go back to the start now and read them tonight with a nice cup of tea. I hope they're not too scary - i don't want to spill my brew! haha

    1. Yo Mr H I am working to a great master plan and to tell the truth the best way to read it would be to read the entire lot at Z. But that may be asking rather a lot of even a member of RATs....

      Hope all is well I finally finished the last letter that was giving me all sorts of problems the letter F so just as well I got it sorted last night.

      Say hello to Dave for me . . .HAH HAH HAH AH HAH AH HAHH AH haah ah ha hah ha hahah ha ha hahah ha ha haha ha

    3. Yes Mr H it did occur to me that the demise of Dave might meet with some approval.

    1. Hello Miss Laura, you are quite right, but it was always such with dragons being big and breathing fire does panic people a bit.

  7. I think that the main thing I have eNjoyed from Danemerk is Lego products. I think they helped my young son eventuaLLy become a mechanical engineer. At the moment I am more into things Italiano ...

    1. Welcome Mr ESB things are not quite as normal here but the flurry of activity will soon pass and my blog will fall into the shadows of obscurity once more. I was always a Meccano fan rather than Lego but it was cheaper back in the old days when I was a young keen chap exploring the ideas of the world. (Oooo if others are reading I am still a young mildly eccentric chap really ... .honest).

      I cant remember what happens at I, but if I remember correctly it involves a pet shop and a ticking alligator......

    2. I had Lincoln Logs, Erector Sets, and a chemistry set. I remember creating something hot enough by just a chemical reaction that the tube cracked and the escaping chemicals left a permanent scar on the kitchen table, a long long time ago in South Dakota.

    3. I am impressed Mr ESB, I wondered where South Dakota suddenly vanished too all those years ago in a story hushed up by the CIA.....

    4. When things got bad in SD and they could no longer afford their van payments, it was repossessed and then the state became -ished. Then someone walked out of the state capital and asked his partner, "Vincent, where did your van go?".

    5. I could sea how it would be ea-sea to confuse a tin of knight night after night with a tin of sardines, but I think Vikings being sea beings would probably taste even closer to sardines, or maybe sar-DANEs, ah hahahahahaha ha. You are probably think, nor way does that make any sense but if you swee-den then with honey, make their fins land in the frying pan, the dragon could sautee them with its own flames. I should know to as I just recently watched the delightful movie, "How To Tame Your Dragon", although I have not actuaLLy found one to train, I did find that my former fellow employee Tully has been in the act of Arduino-ing almost the same eXact amount of time. He is slightly ahead of me in that he has already purchased a Raspberry Pi as well.

  8. Rob Z, I saw in one of the comments, that you preferred your A-Z from last year. But I personally think, that you have outdone yourself this year. The lil man AND I are really enjoying the theme and today's post was one of his favourites. (he ONLY reads your posts) :)

    1. Hello Miss Lily I am glad the Lil man is enjoying the posts, and I can understand why he is only reading my posts after all this is the work of a genius well either that of the work of a slightly demented eccentric child. Depending on who you ask.

      The letter E is a bit short in fact the letter E is the shortest of all, due to the sudden death of one of its characters, (there is a theme beginning to emerge).

      And I would agree that this year the whole theme is more a coherent effort but I did like some of last years letters but there was no way I was doing that again phew.
