A stray mention of dragon-riding

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

When I was a boy, my mother read the weekly magazine "Woman" ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Woman_(UK_magazine) ). One issue's readers' letters included a letter from a woman who wrote to the editor that she once told her children that they were "worse than a wagon-load of monkeys", and that later she found one of her children telling her dolls that they were "worse than a dragon-load of mumfies", accompanied by an editorial drawing of several monks riding on a dragon (drawn with 4 legs and 2 wings).
