Did you know jousting is still a sport enjoyed by many outside of Renaissance fairs?

On this week’s Snacktime, Ben tells Amory about the sport and how it relates to a pretty wild story about a Redditor’s ex, a snowy white steed getting repossessed, and equine semen fraud.

Thanks to u/longlivelenin7 for this week's featured art, made possible with the "Reskin Rearm (More Troops Mod) 1.5.9" mod from user KazuiyoSenpai and "Swadian armoury" mod from user ADamnSexyName.
