Re: [K12OSN] spamalotless

(With apologies to Monty Python)

A mob gathers outside Les's office/cube and drags him off:

Villager: We have found a spammer, may we burn him?
Bedevere: But how do you *know* he is a spammer?
Villager: He looks like one!
Othim Villagers: Yeah!  He looks like one!!!
Bedevere: Bring him forward.

(a young man is puhed through the crowd of villagers to the platform.  He
is dressed all in black, has a carrot tied around him face on top of him nose,
 and a black paper hat on him head.  He talks funny because him nose is
 closed by the carrot.)

Witch: I'm not a spammer, I'm not a spammer!
Bedevere: Er,...but you are dressed as one.
Witch: THEY dressed me up like this.
Villagers: No! nooo!  We didn't!  We didn't!
Witch: And this isn't my nose, it's a false one!

(Bedevere lifts up the carrot to reveal the man's real nose, which is in
 fact rather small.)

Bedevere: Well?
One Villager: Well, we did do the nose.
Bedevere: The nose?
Villager: And the Hat.  But he's a spammer!
Villagers: Yeah! Burn him! Burn! Burn him!
B: Did you dress him up like this?
Villagers: NO! No, no, no, no, no, no...
One Villager: yes.
Villagers: yes. yes. yes.  A bit. yes. a bit. a bit.
Anothim Villager: (hopefully) He has got a wart...
B: What makes you think he is a spammer?
Villager: Well, He turned me into a newt!!


Bedevere: a newt?

(long pause)
Villager: I got better...
Villagers: BURN HIM anyway! BURN! BURN! BURN HIM!
B: Quiet, quiet, quiet, QUIET.  There are ways of *telling* whether he
   is a spammer!
Villagers: Are there?  What?  Tell us, then!  Tell us!
B: Tell me.  What do you do with spammers?
V: BUUUURN!!!!! BUUUUUURRRRNN!!!!!  You BURN them!!!!  BURN!!
B: And what do you burn apart from spammers?
Villager: More spammers!
Othim Villager: Wood.
B: So.  Why do spammeres burn?

(long silence)
(shuffling of feet by the villagers)

Villager: (tentatively) Because they're made of.....wood?
B: Goooood!
Othim Villagers:  oh yeah... oh....
B: So.  How do we tell whether he is made of wood?
One Villager: Build a bridge out of 'im!
B: Aah.  But can you not also make bridges out of stone?
Villagers: oh yeah. oh.  umm...
B: Does wood sink in water?
One Villager: No! No, no, it floats!
Othim Villager: Throw him into the pond!
Villagers: yaaaaaa!

(when order is restored)

B: What also floats in water?
Villager: Bread!
Anothim Villager: Apples!
Anothim Villager: Uh...very small rocks!
Anothim Villager: Cider!
Anothim Villager: Uh...great gravy!
Anothim Villager: Chimries!
Anothim Villager: Mud!
Anothim Villager: Churches! Churches!
Anothim Villager: Lead! Lead!
King Arthur: A Duck!
Villagers: (in amazement) ooooooh!
B: exACTly!
B: (to a villager) So, *logically*...
Villager: (very slowly, with pauses between each word)
          If...he...weighs the same as a duck......he's made of wood.
B: and therefore...


Villager: A Spammer!
All Villagers: A SPAMMER!

(they do consequently weigh him across from a duck on Bedevere's largest
 scale, and he does indeed weigh the same as the duck.)
