Now lets not get carried away here. Didn't any of you see Life of Brian?
"You don't have to follow leaders, you don't have to follow anyone!!"
Sure Micheal would be totally horrified by the whole idea even as a joke.

OK, have seen the RT article and get the joke. But, it's funny how these things start. Sure that Michael would not want his webfans over idolising him. He's just a normal bloke from Sheffield who's had a good and interesting life so far.

Speaking of "isms", it's the 15th anniversary of the Velvet Revolution in the Czech and Slovak Republics, which marked the beginning of the end of the totalitarian regime, and not one person got thrown out of a window. We've got the day off to spend jingling our keys in contemplation.

For us deprived Americans, is this article on the web somewhere?

We all have our different reasons for wanting to get on our knees for.....I'm sorry, I gotta stop, I know.

You can get Radio Times on the web www.radiotimes.com but this article was too small to include so you won't find it there. Sorry and get off your knees!

Cori, do you mean deprived or depraved -LOL.
And I`m sure MP can see the joke, it`s just a bit of a hoot ...

From the Radio Times, 20-26 November 2004

A meeting of two great minds took place on BBC1`s "Himalaya" on 10th October. One was a man of peace, adored by millions who hang on his every word. The other was the Dalai Lama ...

Michael Palin, once known as Mr Gumby, was a pet-shop owner and a lumberjack in his previous life. Now he is a god - of TV - and heads a new cult, Palinism.

His followers are legion. In one week this autumn over 8.6 million tuned into him - more than watched Saturday Night Takeaway. (Yeah! Antanddecism is dead!).

The rules of the religion are simple:

1) Every few years go on a pilgrimage to one of the most inhospitable parts of the world
2) Find everyone very hospitable
3) Be nice

As the Palin himself humbly said recently, "I`ve never found the right way to react when people ask me about my `niceness`. It makes me wonder what sort of life they lead. Most people I know are pretty nice ..."

Clearly the cult is spreading.
