They came for our guns
We took up the knife
They came for the knives
We took up sticks
They took those, too
We have returned to the stone age

Was this a biblical stoning or somebody dropping a rock onto his head?

Because I think for there to be an official stoning, I would assume that there would be more than one stone involved. Possibly more than one assailant as well. If I were in full charge of the definition I would go so far as to require a mob arranged in a circle around the victim with at least one stone per assailant. None of this passing a single bloody stone back and forth like a game of violent hot potato. That's getting into co-op bludgeoning material right there.

No, bricks do not count.

It's a perfectly cromulent expression. Years ago fancy boxes of chocolate or biscuits would be square tins and often have a quaint village on the front, hence the expression meaning the village looked like one of those.

See, what you should have done is follow official UK government advice, and hide the guns before they came for them:

https://archive.org/details/SOE_Parti​s​an_Leaders_Handbook_Gus/page/n31/mode/​2up

CONCEALMENT AND CARE OF ARMS AND EXPLOSIVES        Appendix IV.

Try and get your arms before the enemy invades your country, so that you can conceal them more easily and at leisure.

1.   One of the first acts of the enemy will be to demand the surrender of all arms held by the civil population.

2.   All arms, bombs, etc., which are concealed must be protected against damp, rust, etc.;  remember that your life and that of your friends may depend on a weapon in good order.  The best way of preserving rifles, revolvers, etc., is to cover them with mineral jelly or vaseline, and wrap them in greasy paper or cloth.  They may then be safely buried.

3.   Places where arms may be concealed are:-
    (a) In the ground by burying.  Choose a place where the earth has already been                turned, or else go far away into a wood, etc.
    (b) In the thatch or roof of a house.
    (c) In a well-shaft, by making a chamber in the wall six feet or more down the                shaft.
    (d) In the banks of streams, in hollow trees, behind a waterfall, etc.
    (e) In haystacks, potato or turnip heaps, ditches, culverts, etc.
    (f) Do not use places like cellars, wooden floors, cattle sheds, etc. where the                enemy is bound to search.
    (g) As a last resort, give them to your women if caught unexpectedly.

4.    You must make every effort to obtain arms and ammunition from the enemy during ambushes, raids, sniping, etc., as it will be difficult in time of war to replenish your stock by other means.  Boxes of rifles and ammunition are frequently transported by rail or in lorries, inadequately guarded: find out when these are being carried and try to get them.  Be very cautious about buying arms from a supposed enemy traitor. This is a common way of inducing you to walk into a trap.

Why do these rock hounds need fifty different rocks?
Is it too early to talk about subduction?

Well that's terrifying. Out for a walk/jog, encounter a bunch of kids, and they casually beat you to death for their own entertainment.

And Jesus sayeth, "Let he who is without sin cast the first stone."
As the crowd shuffles around abjectly, a woman pushes her way to the front and tosses a rock at the prisoner.   Having started the process, the crowd follows suit.

"God damn it, mother," sayeth Jesus.

Thanks on that! I had not heard this one before, and I appreciate the context.

That is monstrously sad that thugs had earlier been reported in the area, and yet the local constables weren't patrolling and now this man is dead.

I tell people on here to fark off and go to hell often enough that they should have gotten the message that I don't play those games. I shouldn't have to do that, but here we are.

I'm not afraid of admitting ignorance to a joke. As well known as Monty Python is, there's so much more being created to be considered culturally literate that older stuff that you think is getting immortalized is all but forgotten except for nerd culture.

Meanwhile Young Frankenstein, The Ruling Class, Harold and Maude and Alice's Resturant are all but forgotten.
