While pretending to be roadkill on the InfoBahn, <staples@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx> scrawled:
(The story being that a knight had his life saved by an old hag, who
demanded in payment that he marry her. Reluctantly, he did. On his wedding
night, a vision of feminine beauty greeted him, possibly in a negligée,
and told him that she was under a curse. But there was a choice involved.
He could have her beautiful during the night, and ugly during the day, or
the other way around. ie., he could get his rocks off, or he could have
arm candy, but not both. He stood in quiet, desperate, furious thought for
a while, and then, realising that he couldn't choose, asked her to decide.
Whereupon bells and sirens went off, and he was informed that this was the
Right Answer, and in reward he could have her beautiful all the time.)
I wonder what kind of answer would have caused her to stay ugly
all the time.
