Banned Books

At a book fair which I attended last week, I noticed that there were many of my favorite books missing. I went up to the lady selling classics and said, "What have you done with the medieval novels? Where's Ivanhoe?" Without missing a beat, she answered, "It's been banned from the fair! There's too much Saxon violence!"

Jakebrake - "Saxon violence" is a bad pun on "Sex and violence" (Ivanhoe being a Saxon and all). Took me a couple reads to get it...
