Witches October 31, 2006

Vice President Dick Cheney said that the Bush administration doesn’t frown on waterboarding. He said it’s not torture.

Water boarding

It creates a drowning sensation.

It sounds like someone has been watching old Monty Python movies.

Monty Python – The Holy Grail

BEDEVERE: What do you burn apart from witches?
VILLAGER #2: Wood!
BEDEVERE: So, why do witches burn?
VILLAGER #3: B–… ’cause they’re made of… wood?
BEDEVERE: Good! Heh heh.
BEDEVERE: So, how do we tell whether she is made of wood?

Witch … Oops!

VILLAGER #1: Build a bridge out of her.
BEDEVERE: Does wood sink in water?
VILLAGER #1: No. No.
VILLAGER #2: No, it floats! It floats!
BEDEVERE: What also floats in water?

Pumpkin sculpture

VILLAGER #1: Bread!
VILLAGER #2: Apples!
VILLAGER #3: Uh, very small rocks!
VILLAGER #1: Cider!
VILLAGER #2: Uh, gra– gravy!
VILLAGER #1: Cherries!
ARTHUR: A duck!
CROWD: Oooh.
BEDEVERE: Exactly. So, logically…
VILLAGER #1: If… she… weighs… the same as a duck,… she’s made of wood.
BEDEVERE: And therefore?
VILLAGER #2: A witch!

On water boarding, I’d like to see myself that this isn’t torture. Maybe Dick Cheney would demonstrate on John Kerry for me, on live TV. Apply, dry out, repeat, and so forth.

Probably wouldn’t take a whole lot of persuading…

Then I’d better not say what I was going to say.

I love that bit from Monty Python. It always makes me giggle.
