Bonnacon - Cloud of Unknowing

Daniel Mitsui relates the amusing legend of the bonnacon here. Notice that sword and shield do not avail the poor knight the least protection.

I had a student once not unlike a bonnacon who struck without warning, but usually right after devouring his lunch in our school cafeteria.

The delicate female students around him appealed to me and we arranged a procedure whereby my bonnacon signaled by pointing toward the door his felt need, and he would, to the great relief of the entire class, excuse himself to the hallway.
