|Sorry Sir Starkers, I think you mean "Welease Bwian!"|
You obviously don't have the latest Python Spellchecker!!!
Errrr, me thinks the original call was 'release Brian'
.....only did the call become 'Welease Bwian' when the Roman Commander, Biggus Dickus was continually taunted by the mob for his speech impediment. After giving prior orders to Welease Woger, Welease Wodney Welease Woderick and etc, none of whom were awaiting crucifixion, a member of the mob called out "release Brian", and Biggus Dickus redponded: "Okay then. Welease Bwian.", when it was confirmed there was a Brian awaiting crucifixion
I should know, I was there...even put my Sunday best bandages on for the occasion, bein' it was a once in a lifetime thing.
And while I'm at it, there's another historical myth that needs putting right. Nero was not Fiddling while Rome burned.....well he was, but that particular instrument hadn't been invented at the time. What he was really doing was consorting with a number of ladies with laviscious reputations. I mean, can you honestly see someone THAT decadent playing a musical instrument while there were several naked ladies there for his amusement!
Oh, and Moses did part the Red Sea....but it wasn't entirely divine intervention, nor did he act alone. Prior to leaving, Moses got his motley tribe to consume copious quantities of Egyptian ale for the long, hot journey.....and it was actually the resulting flatulence. When Moses realised they couldn't get across, he told 'em all to turn around
and go back....well you get the picture.
Gotta go....nursey's calling out to freshen up me bandages.
