I heard about this being a thing. It’s like something parents would tell their kids back in the day to put them off going to war and getting themselves killed. “Oh so you want to be a knight huh? Well it’s up to you if you want to wander around in a suit of armour swimming in your own fecal matter. Not so noble now is it.”
I did a quick google and I can’t find anything, but it’s definitely made my search history more interesting.
