Poll question: Favorite French kniggit insult from Monty Python & the Holy Grail?
Edited on Mon Dec-01-08 09:02 AM by undisclosedlocation
I think this will be a landslide, but I always do and I'm always wrong, so let's play!

Edit: Didn't realize the choices would get cut off due to length, but anybody who remembers the movie knows that "behavior" follows "advancing," right?

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

3. That's the one I like best.
It reminds me of Robin Williams' taunt about British bobbies: "Stop!......or I shall say 'stop' again!"

Those Rabelasian insults kill me every time...

5. It was part of a stand-up routine he did as a benefit in England.
Princess Diana was in the audience. He really poked fun at the differences between the UK and the US. His American parallel to the timid British bobbie was the trigger-happy American cop: BAM-BAM-BAM-BAM-BAM-BAM!!! "Stop or I'll shoot!"

Elderberries is good, but over-used. :)
