Five is Right Out

The Dragon's resident historian has submitted this link to a lovely reconstruction of Medieval technology... in plush form.

There are many ways to vanquish your foe. Sometimes, though, a special weapon is needed. We present to you, to use only for good, the Holy Hand Grenade. Think of it as the BFG of centuries past. Let us now turn to a page from "Armaments, Chapter Two," for instructions on how to use the Holy Hand Grenade properly.
"First shalt thou take out the Holy Pin. Then, shalt thou count to three, no more, no less. Three shalt be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shalt be three. Four shalt thou not count, nor either count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the third number, be reached, then lobbest thou thy Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch towards thou foe, who being naughty in my sight, shall snuff it."

Yes, but what if it's an African Swallow...?
