This strip, as well as countless Renaissance Faires, does jousting the wrong way.Instead of passing on the right like we do in America, it should be on the left. That’s the EXACT reason why England drives on the left to this day! Right-handed jousters would pass on the left so their lances would be closer to their opponents. Until just a few decades ago, left-handed kids would be made to convert to using their right hand – the Latin word for left-handed is “sinister”!As you can see by my avatar, I live in Pennsylvania, which is the first jurisdiction that required driving on the right, 100 years ago in 1914. We drive on the right because our Conestoga wagons had a “lazyboard” where the driver stood. It was on the left side of the wagon.
