in thread Catching the command sent by an Internet Button

Ovid marches in with vroom and a couple of Friars

"There's your loathesome scoundrel, vroom!"

"Let's get that mask off, and see who it REALLY is!"

vroom yanks the ski mask from the bound monk...

*gasp* "It's Mr. Ferguson, the server maid!"

"That's right! And I would have gotten away with it, too, if it weren't for these meddling kids!"

    >Ovid marches in with vroom and a couple of Friars

    *ahem* I didn't expect the Spanish Inquisition!

      JARRING CHORD
      The door flies open and Cardinal Ximinez of Spain --=Macphisto=-- enters, flanked by two junior cardinals. Cardinal Biggles --=Ovid=-- has goggles pushed over his forehead. Cardinal Fang --=buzzcutbuddha=-- is just Cardinal Fang

      Machipsto: NOBODY expects the Spanish Inquisition! Our chief weapon is surprise...surprise and fear...fear and surprise.... Our two weapons are fear and surprise...and ruthless efficiency.... Our *three* weapons are fear, surprise, and ruthless efficiency...and an almost fanatical devotion to the Pope Larry the I.... Our *four*...no... *Amongst* our weapons.... Amongst our weaponry...are such elements as fear, surprise.... I'll come in again.

      The Inquisition exits

      Chapman: I didn't expect a kind of Spanish Inquisition.

      JARRING CHORD

      The cardinals burst in

      Machipsto: NOBODY expects the Spanish Inquisition! Amongst our weaponry are such diverse elements as: fear, surprise, ruthless efficiency, an almost fanatical devotion to the Pope Larry I, and nice red uniforms - Oh damn! To Cardinal Biggles I can't say it - you'll have to say it.
      Ovid: What?
      Machipsto: You'll have to say the bit about 'Our chief weapons are ...'
      Ovid: rather horrified: I couldn't do that...

      Machipsto bundles the cardinals outside again

      Chapman: I didn't expect a kind of Spanish Inquisition.

      JARRING CHORD

      The cardinals enter

      Ovid: Er.... Nobody...um....
      Machipsto: Expects...
      Ovid: Expects... Nobody expects the...um...the Spanish...um...
      Machipsto: Inquisition.
      Ovid: I know, I know! Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition. In fact, those who do expect -
      Machipsto: Our chief weapons are...
      Ovid: Our chief weapons are...um...er...
      Machipsto: Surprise...
      Ovid: Surprise and --
      Machipsto: Okay, stop. Stop. Stop there - stop there. Stop. Phew! Ah! ... our chief weapons are surprise...blah blah blah. Cardinal, read the charges.
      buzzcutbuddha: You are hereby charged that you did on diverse dates commit heresy against the Holy Church. 'My old man said follow the--'
      Ovid: That's enough.
      To Cleveland Now, how do you plead?
      Clevelnd: We're innocent.
      Machipsto: Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!

        hmmm.... i do believe that someone has WAY too much time on his hands. very amusing though. perhaps it should be "an almost fanatical devotion to Pope Larry I"?

        although i suppose if we're talking about religion perhaps it should be Pope Vroom.

        Update: Bravo! Bravo!
