Time to play! Please keep the word association games going as long as you like.

Here's another no-prizes game:

If you could participate in any historical scene, what 4 words would you say? Briefly describe the scene and give us the phrase or sentence.

Mine: To Richard III as he orders Hastings execution ...

Really bad idea, dude!

NO, Hank!! Think heritage!

Kelly

To me, all things considered, this is the single worse thing he did as King.

To Spartan King:

Leave the horse outside.

Not that any of them would listen.  Maybe if you had the LOTR One Ring to walk up to them invisible, uncloak and say the words, and then go invisible again.  That might work.
