*gasp* Oh no!

It's from Flying Circus, Episode 2: Sex and Violence.

INTERVIEWER: Good evening, and welcome once again to the Epilogue. On the programme this evening we have Monsignor Edward Gay, visiting Pastoral Emissary of the Somerset Theological College and author of a number of books about belief, the most recent of which is the best seller 'My God'. And opposite him we have Dr Tom Jack: humanist, broadcaster, lecturer and author of the book 'Hello Sailor'. Tonight, instead of discussing the existence or non-existence of God, they have decided to fight for it. The existence, or non-existence, to be determined by two falls, two submissions, or a knockout. All right boys, let's get to it. Your master of ceremonies for this evening - Mr Arthur Waring.

(The participants move into a wrestling ring.)

WARING:  Good evening ladies and gentlemen and welcome to a three-round contest of the Epilogue. Introducing on my right in the blue corner, appearing for Jehovah - the ever popular Monsignor Eddie Gay. (there are boos from the crowd) And on my left in the red corner - author of the books 'The Problems of Kierkegaard' and 'Hello Sailor' and visiting Professor of Modern Theological Philosophy at the University of East Anglia - from Wigan - Dr Tom Jack! (cheers; gong goes for the start).

It's from Monty Python's Flying Circus, a television programme on the BBC that ran from 1969 to 1973. I wish I'd made up even one line of that stuff--it's 45 episodes of some of the best satire I've ever encountered. Here's the full set.

Here's some more, from Episode 9: The Ant, an Introduction:
Quote
COMPÈRE:  Good evening, ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to the Refreshment Room here at Bletchley. (applause) My name is Kenny Lust and I'm your compère for tonight. You know, once in a while it is my pleasure, and my privilege, to welcome here at the Refreshment Room, some of the truly great international artists of our time. (applause) And tonight we have one such artist. (grovelling) Ladies and gentlemen, someone whom I've always personally admired, perhaps more deeply, more strongly, more abjectly than ever before. (applause) A man, well more than a man, a god (applause), a great god, whose personality is so totally and utterly wonderful my feeble words of welcome sound wretchedly and pathetically inadequate. (by now on his knees) Someone whose boots I would gladly lick clean until holes wore through my tongue, a man who is so totally and utterly wonderful, that I would rather be sealed in a pit of my own filth, than dare tread on the same stage with him. Ladies and gentlemen, the incomparably superior human being, Harry Fink!  
VOICE OFF:  He can't come!  
COMPÈRE:  Never mind, it's not all it's cracked up to be. Ladies and gentlemen, we give you Ken Buddha and his inflatable knees.  

(Cut to Ken in evening dress; his knees go 'bang'.)
COMPÈRE:  Ken Buddha, a smile, two bangs and a religion. Now ladies and gentlemen, for your further entertainment, Brian Islam and Brucie.

BTW, my tagline is also taken from that show.

He's not pining, he's passed on. This parrot is no more. He has ceased to be. He's expired and gone to meet his maker. He's a stiff, bereft of life, he rests in peace. If you hadn't have nailed him to the perch he'd be pushing up the daisies. He's rung down the curtain and joined the choir invisible. This is an ex-parrot.

IF any of you are in the New England area and would like to see a bunch of seminarians beat up on each other, come to the annual Hellenic College/Holy Cross football game. 

Also, it could be a great opportunity to meet and greet.  Its on Monday at noon.  Just thought i'd throw that in the mix.   Wink Grin

The bugs were attacking us too - and our pitcher did just fine Cheesy Grin 

I'm not laughing - I'm cheering.  And the rest of the world will be, too, once we bounce the Yankees.

Those bugs came and left after they accomplished their objective...was it a Divine act ?

I think they were called Canadian Lancers ...

Millions of bugs disrupt Yankees-Indians game in late innings 
 
Oct 5 11:42 PM US/Eastern
CLEVELAND - This will forever be known as the Bug Game.       
 
 
A swarm of insects descended on Jacobs Field in the eighth inning of the Cleveland Indians' 2-1 victory over the New York Yankees on Friday night, leading to a bizarre scene featuring players from both teams waving their arms and gloves in an attempt to keep the pesky bugs away.

The two teams kept playing as millions of bugs nagged players on the field and in the dugouts.

The Yankees were on the verge of tying the series when the pesky insects arrived in a scenario only Alfred Hitchcock could imagine.

The bugs seemed to subside somewhat after the game went into extra innings. Travis Hafner ended it with an RBI single in the 11th inning, leading to a celebration by the Indians in the infield.

With the Yankees ahead 1-0, the bugs clearly affected Joba Chamberlain and helped the Indians tie the game. Bug spray did little good - Chamberlain's neck, face and hat were covered with the bugs, and he tried to spit them out of his mouth.

"There's not much you can do about it," Yankees manager Joe Torre said. "He was having trouble seeing out there. I'll tell you one thing about the kid he never lost his composure. Unfortunately it was at a bad time."

Almost everyone was affected by the cloud, with players on both teams and the umpires trying in vain to swat them away.

Chamberlain was sprayed with insect repellant when he took the mound in the eighth and fans booed as a member of the Yankees staff sprayed him down again before facing Travis Hafner.

Chamberlain, who was in command when he took over in the seventh, lost control. He walked two, hit a batter and threw a pair of wild pitches - he had only one wild pitch during the season.

Chamberlain's second wild pitch let Grady Sizemore score the tying run from the third base.

Shortstop Derek Jeter and second baseman Robinson Cano swatted away the bugs with their hats between pitches. Alex Rodriguez used his glove and hat.

The bugs, which come out in warm weather, have plagued Jacobs Field in the past. During one memorable September 2004 game, play was stopped several times to allow players, who complained of swallowing the bugs while running the bases, were sprayed with repellant. The Indians lost to the Angels 6-1.

Ron Harrison, an entomologist who works for Atlanta-based Orkin Pest Control Inc., said the annoying bugs were a type of midge, an insect related to mosquitoes.

During warm fall weather, midges often breed on the outskirts of lakes.

"My feeling is that there has been some breeding around Lake Erie, and air currents are pushing them onto land in mass numbers," Harrison said.

The insects don't have piercing, sucking mouth parts, he said.

"They aren't really biters - more of a nuisance," Harrison said

Did anyone here watch unranked and last place Stanford beat No. 1 USC in LA?  Bye-bye to the Trojans' winning streak at home. Kiss

I read something about Trojan QB John David Booty throwing four interceptions, one of which the Cardinal ran back for a TD--the Cardinal won 24-23.
