At the other end of the vegetable patch was a row of cabbages; one
was bored with life as a cabbage and when his fairy godmother
appeared to grant a wish, he asked to become a knight in shining
armor. Done! Riding off for adventure, he finds a damsel held
captive by a dragon, so he attacks the dragon with a view toward
rescuing the lady. The dragon breathes fire the on hapless knight,
instantly turning him into a cinder of charcoal. What is the moral of
this story? He should have quit while he was a head.
