“87th floor, room 24,” says the hotel receptionist as I check in.

“87?! How tall is this hotel?” I exclaim.

“Oh, it’s only two floors up,” she smiles, “but we skip unlucky numbers, and there are a LOT of those around the world.”

“Did you know 87 is unlucky for cricketers?” I joke as I reach for the key.

She frowns, pulls back the key. “Your floor is now called—[typing]—the 111th floor.”

Just in awe of how much this guy looks exactly like what I'd expect the inventor of a CD-vinyl hybrid to look like

The jester hid as the guards searched.

"You've done it now," said his only sure friend, a royal cook, "You're supposed to wittily cut down those who displease the king, not him!"

"When my humor cuts others as cruel as the king, yes," said the jester, "But not his subjects who simply wish for fairness and aid."

The jester changed out of his makeup and uniform, walking out unnoticed, castle map in hand to be passed on to righteous rogues.
