HARe HARe HARe. Blatant capitalism. Wish I'd have thought of it first.

Can the life-size plush John Cleese lemur be far behind?

I want one!!!

*adds to her christmas list*
Sweet. I need one of those. No, not want, NEED!
Seriously.
I know some small children who require terrorizing.
Bwuahahahaha

I want to get my dog one of these for Christmas. Maybe then he'll lose the urge to chase every rabbit he sees, especially when we're out walking. I'm tired of having my arm wrenched out of my shoulder socket.

i think i like yesterday's christmas gift idea better.

Crossgirl ~ why do you want a banana thong? :)

It's just a bunny...

dang - no direct linkie allowed

MOTW - That's pretty rude of them!!! I of course had to try anyway....

Southerngirl - I think the banana sling was just the giftwrap for Crossgirl's present.

bunnies aren't harmless - we used to have a dachsund (you know, a wiener dog), that LOVED to chase rabbits - that is, until he finally caught one, which then proceeded to soundly kick the crap out of him...

We need the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch, and the counting shall be to three.

Continuing my quest to keep the American and Chinese economies strong, I bought one of these months ago. Actually, my kids begged me to (True! They're excellent consumers, too.). Well, ours is the hand puppet version of this.

It has made our lives so much more meaningful.

I got one of these over a year ago.

'E's got nasty sharp pointed teeth!

Dave, if you're working on your annual Holiday Gift Guide (and I hope you are) you're going to have to do better than this.

Does it fly around like the one in the movie does? If so, I'm buying a dozen of these things...

I know what the Holiday Gift Guide theme is this year, or, at least, what it was in March.

But I promised not to tell.

...and three is the number thou shalt count. Four is over, and five is right out!!

I just soiled my armor!!!!

I just soiled my armor!!!!

twice!!

TIM: There he is!
ARTHUR: Where?
TIM: There!
ARTHUR: What, behind the rabbit?
TIM: It is the rabbit!
ARTHUR: You silly sod! You got us all worked up!
TIM: Well, that's no ordinary rabbit. That's the most foul, cruel, and bad-tempered rodent you ever set eyes on.
ROBIN: You tit! I soiled my armor I was so scared!
TIM: Look, that rabbit's got a vicious streak a mile wide, it's a killer!
???: Get stuffed!
TIM: It'll do you a trick, mate!
???: Oh, yeah?
ROBIN: You manky Scot's git!
TIM: I'm warning you!
ROBIN: What's he do, nibble your bum?
TIM: He's got huge, sharp-- he can leap about-- look at the bones!
ARTHUR: Go on, Bors. Chop his head off!
BORS: Right! Silly little bleeder. One rabbit stew comin' right up!
TIM: Look!
[squeak]
BORS: Aaaugh!
[chord]
ARTHUR: Jesus Christ!
TIM: I warned you!
ROBIN: I did it again!
TIM: I warned you! But did you listen to me? Oh, no, you knew it all, didn't you? Oh, it's just a harmless little bunny, isn't it? Well, it's always the same, I always--
ARTHUR: Oh, shut up!
TIM: --But do they listen to me?--
ARTHUR: Right!
TIM: -Oh, no--
KNIGHTS: Charge!
[squeak squeak]

if they could make one that doubles as an undergarment modeled by some young stud, i may add it to the wish list. scat's hand puppet model might work....

Fed - Thank you!! I was able to replay that entire scene in my head - what is that, an eye-worm? - and laugh all over again.

Fed, what is that from?

BTW MOTW ~ I was able to click directly on the link.

Southerngirl - That's from Monty Python and the Holy Grail!

Brav-o fed'l duck. ahh, the sheer joy of python. what is your favorite color....

"Red! No, blue! AIEEEEE!!!"

An unladen African swallow, or an English swallow?

Fed you cut it off before the "RUN AWAY! RUN AWAY!" part so the Python virgins have no idea why the entry has that heading.

"Python Virgins" WBAGNFARB.

Python Virgins might bagnfarb

To continue Federal Duck's story:

KNIGHTS: Charge!
[squeak squeak]
KNIGHTS: Aaaaugh! Aaaugh! etc.
KNIGHTS: Run away! Run away!
TIM: Haw haw haw. Haw haw haw. Haw haw.
ARTHUR: Right. How many did we lose?
???: Gawain.
???: Hector.
ARTHUR: And Boris. That's five.
GALAHAD: Three, sir.
ARTHUR: Three. Three. And we'd better not risk another frontal assault, that rabbit's dynamite.
ROBIN: Would it help to confuse it if we run away more?
ARTHUR: Oh, shut up and go and change your armor.
GALAHAD: Let us taunt it! It may become so cross that it will make a mistake.
ARTHUR: Like what?
GALAHAD: Well,....
ARTHUR: Have we got bows?
???: No.
LAUNCELOT: We have the Holy Hand Grenade.
ARTHUR: Yes, of course! The Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch! 'Tis one of the sacred relics Brother Maynard carries with him! Brother Maynard! Bring up the Holy Hand Grenade!
[singing]
How does it, uh... how does it work?
???: I know not, my liege.
ARTHUR: Consult the Book of Armaments!
MAYNARD: Armaments, Chapter Two, Verses Nine to Twenty-One.
BROTHER: "And Saint Attila raised the hand grenade up on high, saying, 'Oh, Lord, bless this thy hand grenade that with it thou mayest blow thy enemies to tiny bits, in thy mercy.' And the Lord did grin, and people did feast upon the lambs, and sloths, and
carp, and anchovies, and orangutans, and breakfast cereals, and fruit bats, and large --"
MAYNARD: Skip a bit, Brother.
BROTHER: "And the Lord spake, saying, '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.'"
MAYNARD: Amen.
ALL: Amen.
ARTHUR: Right! One... two... five!
???: Three, sir!
ARTHUR: Three!
[boom]

"what sad times are these..." when there are people who don't know "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" when they see a quote.

Jinx

Looks like I owe you a coke, PD.

S'alright, I'd have gotten it in sooner had I been able to remember the acronym without sounding it out.

Federal Duck and ArcticAl,

My thanks for a big grin after a long day.

This is what comes of saying "Filigree, apogee, pedigree, perigee" to a vampire. They shouldn't mess around with spells like that.

Orangutans and breakfast cereals? We'd rather have pizza, dude!

Way to go boys and bosoms! T'was good to the Python poke his head out today.

Oh, and better not let Bangi see that free Coke sitting there.

Just sayin.

This is deteriorating into old-boy Stooge humor time.... think I'll go back and check out Mr. Art "Full Monty" Python banana-sling guy. Seems like every time Judi posts a winner, Dave gets post-envy and shocks us out of our reverie with Barely Man-enough.

Ooh, Bumble. . .

. . . nice quasi-obscure reference.

And I love that movie.

Boo~ Thanks. Me, too. :-)

saweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet!!!

and wbagfnarb? I haven't run into that one yet

Jenn ~ "would be a good name for a rock band" Glad I could contribute, since cool as I am, *snork*, I don't know M. P. Snakes.... why did it have to be snakes?

*hides head in shame*

For not knowing Monty Python jokes, or for for stealing IBW's line. You decide.

OF COURSE it's a good idea!!

SG---It isn't my line; I stole it from a movie I've never seen.

What a coincidence - I think I didn't see that movie either.
