British girl finds sword in legendary pool

A young British girl swimming at a lake in the United Kingdom believed to hold the legendary King Arthur’s famous sword happened upon a shiny sword herself.

Matilda Jones, 7, was swimming with family at Dozmary Pool while on vacation last Tuesday, when she discovered a shiny sword beneath the water, The Sheffield Star reported.

Apparently not a joke, though nobody’s making any Arthurian claims. Yet.

“I told her not to be silly and it was probably a bit of fencing, but when I looked down I realised it was a sword. It was just there laying flat on the bottom of the lake,” Paul said.

Paul said the sword is 4 feet long, which he said is “exactly Matilda’s height.”

He also believes the sword is just a film prop, and can’t be more than 20 or 30 years old.

Yeah, okay. But if Mordred shows up I’m moving to the southern hemisphere just to be on the safe side. I’ve already seen the violence inherent in the system.

    Given the story of the lake, I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s full of swords that people have tossed in over the years.

    Considering the British seem to do better with a queen (leaving out Mary). Might be a better choice than Charlie and his peccadillo.

To the stake with the heretic!
