That's not a stupid remark. There appears to be an oversight in the rules concerning what to do with Kings. Some possibilities are (a) You may not capture your own King, (b) You may not drop other pieces when you have your King in hand, or (c) Your opponent will have to force you to drop your own King by capturing the rest of your pieces or otherwise creating a situation that is best remedied by dropping your King.
