Once upon a time there was a Sword named Excalibur which was lodged in an anvil in an enchanted place called Fantasyland. The stone on which the anvil rested was inscribed, "Whoso pulleth out this sword of this stone and anvil is rich and wise ruler born of England".
Along came the young price, Sir William, full of vim and vigor and in his youthful exuberance did he try to free said sword from it's prison of iron and stone. But, alas, it was not to be.
Even with his father, Lord Timoteo, by his side, young Sir William could not free the sword, despite his most passionate attempts. Clearly, all of the muscle power the young men could amass would not be enough to release Excalibur from it's prison.
Along came Lord Timoteo's father, whom Sir William doth moniker as the Mighty Pop-Pop, and try as they might, they three nobelmen could not manage to retrieve the mighty Excalibur. This was going to take more than sheer muscle and might to solve. What to do? What to do?
After wishing on a star with his tender heart, the sweet and loving Sir William got his wish in the form of a fairy named Valerie, who wore a magical white straw hat and carried a magic wand that made bubbles with every wave. Could Valerie grant Sir William the magical powers needed to release Excalibur from it's place of confinement? Did Sir William possess the purity and innocence to free the Sword from the Stone?
With some magic words and little bit of pixie dust, something incredible started to happen... the sword began to lift from the anvil! All hail Sir William, the new King of Fantasyland!
