#2935: Hee hee hee

In church on Sunday the choir was singing some song, and it was very nice music; but right in the middle of this song suddenly they begin singing:
All creatures bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small...
...and I began laughing.

Why?

Dave Allen at Large used to run between whatever Channel 11 (PBS) ran at 10 PM on Sunday and Doctor Who, which started at 11. Normally the show at 10 was either Monty Python's Flying Circus, or Fawlty Towers; for a while it was The Two Ronnies which was the most unfunny piece of crap I ever did see. They ran Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy for a while.

...but Dave Allen was always in the middle, and I saw each episode so many times it stopped being funny. There weren't all of that many of them to begin with.

And one of the sketches showed people in church, with the choir singing:
All creatures bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful--
Closeup on the priest, who holds up a can of bug spray:

"Insecto kills them all!"

This is why I was laughing.
