Mr. Malaprop

Big Brother has been playing a computer game about medieval days. It's interesting to listen to him talk about various invaders, royalty, military strategy and excommunications. Apparently the scenarios in the game are fairly historically accurate, and he's studying this time period in history class right now, so between the game and the class, we're hearing a good bit about medieval life and warfare.

Little Brother has been picking up bits and pieces of "knowledge" along the way, since he likes to look at the knights on the computer screen. (The more Shining Armor, the better he likes it.) Today he asked me if we could go to "Eggland" to see the knights.

I told him that the kind of knights he wanted to see weren't around anymore.

"Why not? Are they instinct?"
