K, no worries. ;) I wasn't actually complaining about your post - just providing some hints of my own toward the answer (which your initial post helped me a lot in discovering!). My post again, with the clues in bold:

"K, must your post drag on and on without any spoilers whatsoever? I mean, what's it all for, man? As those knights in Monty Python and the Holy Grail might say, "Give us a clue - Ni! And bring us a shrubbery!" (A curious thing to ask for, though with enough of them, they could plant a whole jungle."

Saint George famously battled a dragon. George Foreman is a famous boxer/kitchen appliance salesman/narcissist (all five of his sons are also named George!). George Clooney is, well, George Clooney. "Shrub" was a pejorative nickname for George W. Bush while he was in office. And Curious George and George of the Jungle are both famous cartoon/kid lit characters. (Some gorgeous wordplay, huh?)
