I love how they provided a video for those of us who don't know what the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch is.
 
2009-03-19 11:22:31 AM  
Movie reference!
 
2009-03-19 11:23:30 AM  
Did anyone see a killer bunny?

You can't risk another frontal assault, ya know!

Ninja Wicked: I love how they provided a video for those of us who don't know what the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch is.


and how he quoted 50-60% of the scene for us already.

I'm surprised he didn't work Armaments 2:9-21 in there somehow.

Could a migrating swallow carry it if it grabbed it by the pin?

/African or European?
//I don't knoAAAAAAAAAAH!

I soiled my armor I was so scared!

Damn now I need to get 14 pounds.
 
2009-03-19 11:24:51 AM  
Right. One rabbit stew coming right up!
 
2009-03-19 11:25:02 AM  
look at the bones!
 
2009-03-19 11:25:13 AM  
I love how it says, "Former Python Michael Palin, who appeared in the film"
 
2009-03-19 11:25:56 AM  
The article kinda ruined the jokes for the thread, but hey. The Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch closed down a pub. I'll take what I can get.

Bomb squad called in after Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch found in British pub. No, really reali.


FTFY

If he was dying, he wouldn't bother carving "AAAAAARRRRRGGGGG", he'd just say it!

And still managed to miscredit the lines.

And Saint Attila raised the hand grenade up on high, saying, "O Lord, bless this Thy hand grenade that with it Thou mayest blow Thine enemies to tiny bits, in Thy mercy." And the Lord did grin and the people did feast upon the lambs and sloths and carp and anchovies and orangutans and breakfast cereals, and fruit bats and large chu... [At this point, the friar is urged by Brother Maynard to "skip a bit, 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 shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither 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 thy foe, who being naughty in my sight, shall snuff it." Amen.

He's got huge, sharp... He can leap about... Look at the bones!
 
2009-03-19 11:27:47 AM  
I forgot that was my favorite line of the scene. "Five... is right out."
 
2009-03-19 11:28:10 AM  
I guess I know which movie I'm watching when I get home.

/it's in my brain

All those... moments... will be lost in time, like tears in rain.
Time to die.


/what? Wrong movie?

Third Day Mark: I forgot that was my favorite line of the scene. "Five... is right out."


"1, 2, 5!" is possibly one of the greatest follow-up jokes in the history of man.

I never get tired of this! I love this film!
 
2009-03-19 11:31:20 AM  
So if they had the video from the movie there, why did they keep saying that Eric Idle was saying Michael Palin's lines? Did they not watch their own video?
 
2009-03-19 11:31:38 AM  
Graham Chapman is laughing at them all.

Raging Thespian: Lawsuit in 5, 2, 1...


Nah, it's the UK. The Empire's glory has faded, but they do retain some sort of common sense.
 
2009-03-19 11:33:58 AM  
Just then. a member of the bomb squad suffered a massive heart attack.
 
2009-03-19 11:34:30 AM  
Wow. This has got to be the best bit of news I have ever read today so far!

"Best" meaning funniest, that is...

Too obscure.

We dare not risk another frontal assault. That rabbit is dynamite!

When the situation was settled, the bomb squad did feast upon the lambs and sloths, and carp and anchovies, and orangutans and breakfast cereals, and fruit-bats...
 
2009-03-19 11:43:26 AM  
I would suggest that we might have a Grenade Trifecta in play, but I guess there's no point since it would probably skip three and four and proceed right on to five.

No, it isn't!
