I'm not exactly sure where you get your ideas for the show, but if they're a product of some crazy food you've eaten or some weird new agey treatment, I'm cool with that. You are definitely not a mainstream thinker. I like that. Quirky. That's what you are. Quirky.
Monologue: Columbus Day in America means that everything is closed and people stay home, except you. Columbus Day was always a mixed blessing for me as a child. You see, children get the obligatory Christopher Columbus/1492 lessons for at least a week prior to the semi-holiday. Every year, I was made the captain of a ship. Why? Because my name at the time was Nina Maria Pinta. Okay, maybe not. But my last name was Pinta. Yeah, you try to work around that one. Someday I'll tell the story of the cars my family drove. Three vehicles, all Pintos. Oh, guess I already spilled the beans, didn't I?
"No, no! I don't want to be captain again! Mutiny! Mutiny!" That rarely earns points with teachers. No amount of sniffing of the old oil cloth desk covers could erase their steely stares and stern frowns from my mind.
Back to the show. Yes. Let's.
I was rolling merrily along with you until you got to "whatchu talkin' 'bout, Torquemada? Ah, no one expects the Spanish Inquisition." I laughed so hard that I missed quite a bit. Thankfully, I taped the show and can go back to watch again and again and again. I won't dare attempt capturing the fun tonight. I'm nowhere near recovered enough from the gigglefest to do an adequate job.
The Spanish Inquisition, indeed.
NOBODY expects the Spanish Inquisition! Amongst our weaponry are such diverse elements as: fear, surprise, ruthless efficiency, an almost fanatical devotion to the Pope, and nice red uniforms - Oh damn!
(To Cardinal Biggles) I can't say it - you'll have to say it.
Forgive this poor Python fan. I have a rather large library of Monty Python transcripts. It's my other obsession. And, I digress.
