(Oh, I heard the word before in the past, but never knew it was a 'thing'. ) The Last Unicorn Schmendrick trained to be a 'magician' but the true magic ....well, let's say it was delayed.... The evil king made him be a frustrated court jester kind of 'magician' doing stupid tricks, to entertain the king's bitter, long days.... yeah, he was made into quite the fool, a Schmendrick.
