... you can learn from:
A Knight's Tale (2001)
William: Oi sir, what are you doing?
Chaucer: Uh... trudging. You know, trudging? To trudge:
the slow, weary, depressing yet determined walk of a man who
has nothing left in life except the impulse to simply soldier on.
Fun fact! Geoffrey Chaucer first told The Cantebury Tales in the court of King Richard II on this day 695 years ago. Hurrah for fine literature! How could he have known that he'd be the literal butt...
... of a joke in an anachronistic (and strangely enjoyable) hipsters-of-the-round-table romance projected onto a magical screen hundreds of years later for it? I dare say he could not know this thing. I think he would've thought it awfully funny though, the bawdy devil.
In summation, Paul Bettany should never wear clothes.
Out of respect for history, of course.
