A poor vagabond, traveling a country road in England, tired
and hungry, 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. "Could ye
spare some victuals?" he asked.

The woman glanced at his shabby clothes and obviously poor
condition. "No!" she said rather sternly.

"Could I have a pint of ale?"

"No!" she said again.

"Could I at least sleep in your stable?"

"No!" by this time she was fairly shouting.

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

"What now?" the woman interrupted impatiently.

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