"Your grace, come back, Señor Don Quixote, I swear to God you're charging sheep!"

Douce Blog, Ashmolean
     Sancho Panza, in Miguel de Cervantes, Don Quixote I.xviii (trans. Edith Grossman (New York:  HarperCollins Publishers, Inc., 2003), 129).
     Cf. for sheer entertainment "the diverting adventure of the puppet master" in II.xxvi (pp. 628-636), in which, however, Don Quixote does manage to dispense justice inadvertently (II.xxvii (pp. 636 ff.)).
