Tripping The Colour In Style... by bIG bLOGGER on 4 July 2009 2:56pm
 
One of the Royal Household's Guardsmen came a cropper last week after having watched 3 Monty Python sketches in succession during his lunch hour....

....he went into a fit of hysterics on duty and could no longer march up and down properly in front of Buckingham Palace. He swayed backwards,then tripped and was very lucky he didn't end up stabbing himself with his own bayonet.

As soon as I read the first line I thought, 'I wonder if he killed himself laughing.' It looks like he nearly did!

Are you sure it wasn't John Cleese temporarily seconded to the Horse Guards?

I have to say, the amount of pedantry on this site is becoming very boring.

You can't be serious! There are some extremely interesting pedants among us whose rights cannot be denied!
