I just love this...

A reading from the Book of Armaments, Chapter 4, Verses 16 to 20:

Then did he raise on high the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch, saying, "Bless this, O Lord, that with it thou mayst blow thine enemies to tiny bits, in thy mercy." And the people did rejoice and did feast upon the lambs and toads and tree-sloths and fruit-bats and orangutans and breakfast cereals ... Now did the Lord say, "First thou pullest the Holy Pin. Then thou must count to three. Three shall be the number of the counting and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither shalt thou count two, excepting that thou then proceedeth to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the number of the counting, be reached, then lobbest thou the Holy Hand Grenade in the direction of thine foe, who, being naughty in my sight, shall snuff it."

-- Monty Python, "Monty Python and the Holy Grail"

No it would be sad to not memorise it.

i haven't memorized it; but tacking on "in thy mercy" at the end of most sentences can be rewarding.

Yes, Palin seemed to complain about his Sir Galahad armour a fair bit. I remember hearing him comment on his part in 'Jabberwocky', saying that he liked it partly because it had a much more comfortable costume than he had to wear for Galahad...plus he got to expose his naughty bits to a crowd.
