The Education of Captain Michael

Said Captain Michael to his son little Nikos: "Look here, son. You're no good fighting the Turks hand to hand. Let's get you some education instead." Along came a monk with a hefty tome under his harm. Without a further word, Captain Michael wrapped an apron around his fist, laid the unsuspecting clergyman flat on the ground with a well-aimed punch as he passed, and wrenched the book from the stunned monk's hands. "Here's your education right there," said Captain Michael as he handed the volume to little Nikos. "Why don't you read that education, boy? GO AND READ THAT EDUCATION!"
