Yeah, and same there, they're intentional errors, aren't they?

I am not sure of the this one:
In Hollywood Bowl sketch Michelangelo & the Pope, Michelangelo messed up the last supper. But Michelangelo never made a painting of that.


Buying a bed - the two shop attendants: one exagerates 10 times and the other only says a third of all numbers. But they don't do it continually. I put in bold the places where they are inconsistent.

Quote:
Mr Verity: Yes, remembering of course that you have to multiply everything Mr Lambert says by three. It's nothing he can help, you understand. Otherwise he's perfectly all right.

Husband: I see, I'm sorry.

Mr Verity: But it does mean that when he says a bed is two foot long, it is in fact sixty foot long, all right?

...

Mr Lambert: Ah yes, well that's the pets' department, second floor.

Husband: No, no, no, we want to see the DOG KENNELS.

Lambert: (irritated) Yes, second floor.

...

Lambert: (irritated) Yes, pets department, second floor.

...

Mr Verity: *Twice*!

No, mr. Verity also has a speech impediment / brain impediment: "Mr Verity does tend to exaggerate. Every figure he gives you will be ten times too high."

Episode 29: When the four explorers think they are lost forever, John Cleese says: "Goodbye Betty, goobye Farquarson, goodbye Brian." But he is playing Betty himself. He should have said: "Goodbye Spare-buttons-supplied-with-the-shirt."

i've always thought that was intentional. the "punchline" in a way being that michelangelo was hired first, but his version was rejected and leonardo da vinci was contracted next...

Actually moviemistakes.com has itself got a python mistake in it: the names of the first two episodes have been switched.

And some fool falsely corrected the 1942 caption mistake in the funniest joke in the world sketch.

And in Holy Grail too, someone corrected this mistake:

Tim says the cave of Caerbannog contains the last words of Ulfwin Bedwere of Rheged, but when the knights enter the cave they find the last words of Josef of Arimathea.

Surely that was a genuine mistake.

And same for the mistake in the Sartre sketch! Some people must be terribly in denial, trying to speculate as many mistakes away as possible.

in Ep 21, the Rev. Arthur Belling is introduced as having "An Appeal for Sanity". this makes no sense to me, as he rather appeals for insanity. thoughts?

No, he wants to gain support for sanity, the terrible affliction that luckily none of us suffers from.
