So Bill Schmalfeldt says that he’s challenging the extension of the Hoge “verses” Schmalfeldt peace order (in iambic pentameter, I hope). I haven’t been served yet, but, considering that he is saying he’s doing something foolish, it’s probably safe to believe him.
This whole peace order thing is beginning to remind me of a scene from Monty Python and the Holy Grail. I’ve whacked the Cabin Boy twice now, the peace order and the extension, and he thinks he is going to kick my ass.I suspect his bluster during his appeal will be analogous to the Black Knight’s, and he’ll probably enjoy the same level of success.
BLACK KNIGHT: Just a flesh wound. [Kicks Arthur]
ARTHUR: Look, stop that.
BLACK KNIGHT: Chicken! Chicken!
ARTHUR: Look, I’ll have your leg. Right! [Cuts off a leg]
BLACK KNIGHT: Right, I’ll do you for that!
ARTHUR: You’ll what?
BLACK KNIGHT: Come ‘ere!
ARTHUR: What are you going to do, bleed on me?
BLACK KNIGHT: I’m invincible!
ARTHUR: You’re a loony.
The big difference is Holy Grail is a silly movie while the Cabin Boy’s antics are all too real.
