Career Opportunity: Knight Required

Are you brave, honourable
and chivalrous?
Do you like wearing metal suits
and enjoy being called Sir?
Then this could be the job for you.

Your duties will include
wielding a sword, jousting
and clanking about.

Preference will be given
to those candidates
who come equipped
with their own warhorse and squire.

If you think
you've got what it takes
turn up for an interview
and show us what you can do.

NB  Candidates will be left to fight it out amongst themselves.
Castle Management Inc accepts no responsibility for loss
of life or limb.
