The unearthing of some documents dating back to last year have conclusively revealed that King Arthur's table used for knight meetings, admittedly not necessarily at night, was in fact square and not round as previously thought.

The revelation was revealed when archive papers were discovered at the back of a filing cabinet in the Scunthorpe branch of MFI.

An excited manager, Phil Terr-Kofee, takes up the story:

"My secretary was looking for some important paperwork- it was in a large glass bottle clearly marked "Bells", yet she couldn't find it anywhere - but instead, came across this antique-style, stained, hand-written invoice dating right back to 2007.

"Clearly written on it was 'received the sum of £375 from Mr Arthur Knights for one square table, round tables being out of stock', which in my book, the third in the Harry Potter series, is conclusive proof.

"This most certainly closes the book on a chapter of history that has been mystifying people for years. In fact, I have received confirmation only this morning that Rick Wakeman will be renaming and reissuing his celebratory album as "King Arthur and the Knights of the Square MFI table."

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
