    Graham Chapman as Brian said: I am NOT the Messiah!




    John Cleese as Arthur said: I say you are Lord, and I should know. I've followed a few.

      Interestingly, you CAN sing "Blood & Souls for my lord Arioch" to the tune of "Always look on the bright side of life".

            That's going to stick with me for the rest of my life whenever I hear the song now!

              Then this should help wedge it there for all eternity:



              Altogether now -
              "Some things in life are bad
              They can really make you mad
              Other things just make you swear and curse.
              When you're chewing on life's gristle
              Don't grumble, give a whistle
              And this'll help things turn out for the best...


              And...
              Blood and souls for my Lord Arioch, <whistle, whistle>..."

              _"For an eternity Allard was alone in an icy limbo where all the colours were bright and sharp and comfortless.
              _For another eternity Allard swam through seas without end, all green and cool and deep, where distorted creatures drifted, sometimes attacking him.
              _And then, at last, he had reached the real world – the world he had created, where he was God and could create or destroy whatever he wished.
              _He was supremely powerful. He told planets to destroy themselves, and they did. He created suns. Beautiful women flocked to be his. Of all men, he was the mightiest. Of all gods, he was the greatest."

                    So how would the rest of the song go? I'm sure you've all been thinking about it all evening...

                      I think it's fair to say you've got too much Idle time on your hands.

                          well sadly I can't quit remeber that song but the idea is very scary, although...it makes my mind wonder....personally I like Arioch and wouldn't mind meeting him or for that matter Elric... Has anyone fell in love with Elric? I'm mean if he was real...

                              This reminds me of the book programme I was on with Terry Jones. He was doing a Corum book. 'How do you pronounce these names ?' he asked conscientiously. 'C'chyrpppnnn' I told him. Whereupon we had a lot of fun pronouncing the names from the telepront run-through in wilder and wilder ways. Much more fun than the programme which went out, though it was the one where I said I'd join the anarchist's to blow things up, which some people remember! Maybe this is the way to go with the Elric movie...
