Chapalu

Chapalu.

This comes from medieval French legends and is an enormous, insatiable cat which preyed upon the unwary.

In french Authorian legend, Chapalu was overcome by Sir Kay. Who was Sir Kay - anyone? What a supernatural cat! :? :)
Blessed be!

One of the Knights...see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sir_Kay
This problem was removed in the next series of experiments by asking the same questions to the penguins and to a random group of non-English-speaking humans in the same conditions.

Oh right! That's Sir Kay! :?

Thanks for that median. :lol: I have heard of the sword in the stone story and if I had thought about it properly, I may have remembered! Then again, I may not! :wink:

I didn't find where Sir Kay went to France though, or slain the cat! :D Oh well, that's mythology for you! :)
Blessed be!

Cherill.
