Politically Correct!

I recently went on a Narnia binge, and I have decided to catalogue various exemplary thoughts and observations that Lewis has inserted in the text. Secondarily, I want to temp someone to read them who has expressed distaste for the series as a whole.

Anyhow, this talking horse refused to follow the politically correct mode of addressing the current ruler of the land, the Tisroc (may he live forever). When scolded he replies:
"Why? I'm a free Narnian. And why should I talk slaves' and fool's talk? I don't want him to live forever, and I know that he's not going to live forever whether I want him to or not....No more of this southern jargon between you and me!"
