  1. Mercury was a good answer … after all, whenever one discovers something, name it after yourself. For example, Charlie Wheel and his twin brother Willie. On the other hand, cheers to the life of Goosey, Goosey!

  2. Hey, I’ve seen tricycles with two wheels. And a unicycle can have three – with training wheels. Or, you buy that two-wheeled unicycle and that two-wheeled tricycle, a little wrench time, and you’ve got a perfect tricycle and unicycle! Or a REALLY messed-up bicycle! 😀
    And let’s face it, what could be funnier at court than telling the king to take your hand – and have it come off! 😯
