A horn sounded to announce the arrival of the chancellor, who had ridden through the night.

He approached the king with a scroll and knelt before him.

"My lord," he said, "I come with an urgent request from the conference."

"I OBEY THE WILL OF THE PEOPLE," he said. "Whatever the request, let it be done at once."

"It is not so simple, sire. The conference requests, and I quote, 'A new kind of food that is like pizza, but different.'"

The king's smile fell away, and the court fell silent.
