there was once a king who loved animals so much that he banned all hunting, for food or for sport. it wasn't a popular decision at the best of times, and it became even worse when the populations of previously-hunted animals exploded, causing many towns to be overrun with animals that it was illegal to kill. the citizens took action and rose up against the king, overthrowing him and taking their homes back 

it's the only known instance of reign being called on account of game

@monorail holly glaceon you deliver to me the absolute best puns to make my dad wheezelaugh with, thank you so much for your excellent work

@monorail OK, I don't understand this one. However, I suspect there is an amazing joke hiding in there and I really want to be in the know

@loke if they have to stop playing baseball or whatever because of the weather, that's "game being called on account of rain"

@monorail Oh I see. I feel less bad about this since I don't think I've ever heard that expression before. 🙂

@monorail little embarrassed to say it took me since this was posted to now to get the joke. really good one
