"Begin at the beginning,and go on till you come to the end: then stop." (Lewis Carroll, 1832-1896)

Alice came to a fork in the road. "Which road do I take?" she asked."Where do you want to go?" responded the Cheshire cat."I don't know," Alice answered."Then," said the cat, "it doesn't matter."

"So long as I get somewhere," Alice added as an explanation. "Oh, you're sure to do that," said the Cat, "if you only walk long enough."

"All right," said the Cat; and this time it vanished quite slowly, beginning with the end of the tail, and ending with the grin, which remained some time after the rest of it had gone. "Well! I've often seen a cat without a grin," thought Alice; "but a grin without a cat! It's the most curious thing I ever saw in my life!"

I am diagonally parked in a parallel universe. Like Arthur Dent from "Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy", if you do not have a Babel Fish in your ear this blog will be completely unintelligible to you and will read something like this: "boggle, google, snoggle, slurp, slurp, dingleberry to the power of 10". Fortunately, those who have had the Babel Fish inserted in their ear, will understood this blog perfectly. If you are familiar with this technology, you will know that the Babel Fish lives on brainwave radiation. It excretes energy in the form of exactly the correct brainwaves needed by its host to understand what was just said; or in this case, what was read. The Babel Fish, thanks to scientific research, reverses the problem defined by its namesake in the Tower of Babel, where a deity was supposedly inspired to confuse the human race by making them unable to understand each other.

Mel Brooks And The Spanish Inquisition

"In the early years of the 16th century, to combat the rising tide of religious unorthodoxy, the Pope gave Cardinal Ximinez of Spain leave to move without let or hindrance throughout the land, in a reign of violence, terror and torture that makes a smashing film. This was the Spanish Inquisition... " from "The Spanish Inquisition" by Monty Python.

I make no apologies for this excerpt from
"History of the World Part 1" as it is one of the few movies I can watch and always get a laugh. Mel Brooks is a completely and utterly delightful lunatic. Nobody takes the piss out of "The Spanish Inquisition" like he can.

You're so right about this flick. I've seen it more than any other movie and am postive I'll enjoy it just as much in the future.

I could definitely see Father Guido Sarducci in the Real Life role of Talk'emoutta under a Republican Catholic president of the US. All the singin' and dancin' and, well, not torture, but Legal stuff that they Decide is necessary for our safety, an' all. You know. Hollywood.

errm, I mean History...

Another Mel Brooks film that had me laughing was 'Men in Tights', the Robin Hood spoof. I know it was panned by the critics, but there's a lot to enjoy in it.
