Each time Sir Sagramore charged him, he shifted lightly out of the way, until the knight grew angry and began to chase him. Finally, Hank draws out a lasso and ropes Sir Sagramore right out of his saddle. His novel weapon causes a sensation as knight after knight challenges him and is lassoed off the field. Eventually the invincible Launcelot goes to meet him and is lassoed as well. Hank is sure he has defeated knight errantry when he hears the bugle sound for one more challenger.
