And this is my favorite from the eighth segment of The Friars Club Encyclopedia of Jokes (categories under the letter, H):

King Arthur was preparing to go out on an expedition and would be away from Camelot for an indefinite period of time.  But he was worried about leaving Queen Guinevere alone with all those horny Knights of the Round Table.  So he went to Merlin for advice.  After he explained his predicament to Merlin, the wizard looked thoughtful and asked the king to come back in a week.

A week later King Arthur was back in Merlin’s laboratory where the good wizard showed him his latest invention.  It was a chastity belt…except that it had a rather large hole in the most obvious place.

“This is no good, Merlin!” the king exclaimed, “Look at this opening.  How is this supposed to protect m’lady, the Queen?”

“Ah, sire, just observe,” said Merlin as he searched his cluttered workbench until he found what he was looking for.  He then selected his most worn-out wand, one that he was going to discard anyway.  He inserted it into the gaping aperture of the chastity belt whereupon a small guillotine blade came down and cut it neatly in two.

“Merlin, you are a genius!” said the grateful monarch.  “Now I can leave, knowing that my queen is fully protected.”

After putting Guinevere in the device, King Arthur set out upon his quest.  Several years passed before he returned to Camelot.

Immediately, he assembled all his knights in the courtyard and had them drop their trousers for an informal “short arm” inspection.  Sure enough!  Each and every one of them was either amputated or damaged in some way.  All of them except Sir Galahad.

“Sir Galahad,” exclaimed King Arthur, “The one and only true knight!  Only you among all the nobles have been true to me.  What is it in my power to grant you?  Name it and it is yours!”

But Sir Galahad was speechless.
