DEAD MESSENGER

What’s the message?

Dead Messenger!

Centuries ago, during the Middle Ages, when a messenger would be sent to deliver a message to the king or queen, they would be killed if the king or queen did not like the message, usually by beheading. Hence the phrase, “Don’t kill the messenger”.
