Potent Quotables . . .

It’s good to see there are a decent amount of Monty Python and the Holy Grail fans out there. Your most favorite quote (of the ones listed, anyway):

“I fart in your general direction! Your mother was a hamster, and your father smelt of elderberries!”

This is the just the kind of thing you want to say to your boss, right before you flip him the bird and quit.

Second place goes to Dennis, who helpfully points out that, “You can’t expect to wield supreme executive power, just because some watery tart throws a sword at you.” (This is my own personal favorite, I think, although there’s something about “Are you suggesting coconuts migrate?” that’s always made me smile for some reason.) Third place is a tie between the oft-quoted, “It’s just a flesh wound!” and the somewhat-less-quoted, “They were forced to eat Sir Robin’s minstrels, and there was much rejoicing.”


This week’s Total Loser Award must sadly go to the Leader of the Knights Who Say Ni, who says, “No, not is. Wouldn’t get very far in life without saying is.” I can’t say I’m surprised that this quote didn’t get any love—it’s pretty arbitrary, even for Monty Python—but I just felt compelled to include it. I mean, it’s just so true.

Thanks for playing, everyone. Next poll coming up in three, two, one . . .
