Wawel Dragon

This is the story about The Wawel Dragon which lived in a den under Wawel Hill. He was a nasty fella and did all the things that dragons notoriously do. One day he was outsmarted by a brave shoemaker who offered the beast a ram’s skin stuffed with sulphur and pitch. Upon eating the bait the dragon stormed out of it’s cave and started drinking from the Vistula river to soothe it’s burning throat. It drank and dran and drank.. until it exploded.

At least that’s the original. Many tales are overly dramatic. My dragon will drink until it gets a sore belly and the entire ordeal will make him mend his ways, go vegan and repent for all his terrorising by doing community service.
The end.
