I don't exactly see your question...
that "for" shouldn't be in there.

And who knows who dubbed it that? Does it matter?

He's just being curious. I would love to know why and who.

------------------

WHY: Because of a skit in Monty Python's The Holy Grail in which the knights "bravely" challenge a cute little rabbit and went it shows its teeth scream, "Run Away! Run Away!"

That's the explanation I've always heard.

WHO: I haven't the foggiest...

It's a pretty funny movie BTW.

Thank you for your cooperation. Good night.

(talking) what i really wanted to do is be a lumberjack, leaping from tree to tree as they float down the mighty rivers of the british columbia. with my best girlie by my side, id sing this song...(/talking)

'twas me.

Okay, it wasn't, but I'm probably one of the few here that was around way back then, so since I haven't the foggiest idea, we'll probably never know. Nothing ever got written down back then....

who was the first person to use a smilie?
who started web abbreviations like LOL and ROFL?
who created the abacus?
who arranged the alphabet the way we know it?
who thought of using yeast to make bread?
who coined the term SNAFU? FUBAR?

My bus came i got on and sat down next to this beautiful blond chinese girl. I said 'hello' and she said 'hello' and i said 'isn't it an amazing day?' And she said 'yes it is, i guess.' I said what do you mean 'i guess'? She said 'well things haven't been going too well for me lately.' I said 'like what?' She said 'i can't tell you, i don't even know you.' I said 'yeah, but sometimes its good for you to tell your problems to an absolute total stranger on a bus.' She said 'well, i just came back from my anaylist and he's still unable to help me.' I said 'what's the problem?' And she paused and said 'im a nymphomaniac and i only get turned on by jewish cowboys.' and she said 'by the way, my name's Diane.' And i said 'hello, Diane, my name's Bucky Goldstein.'

-Dung, sir
-What?
-We've got your dung.
-What dung?
-Your dung. Three hundredweight of heavy droppings. Where do you want it?
-I didn't order any dung.
-Yes you did sir. You ordered it through the Book of the Month Club.
-Book of the Month Club?
-That's right sir. You get "Gone with the Wind" "Les Miserables" by Victor Hugo "The French Lieutenant's Woman" and with every third book you get dung.
-I didn't know that when I signed the form.
-Well no, no. It wasn't on the form. They found it wasn't good for business. Anyway, we've got three hundredweight of dung in the van. Where do you want it?
-Well, I don't think we do. We've no garden.
-Well, it'll all fit in here. It's top class excrement.
-You can't put it in here. We're having a dinner party!
-'Salright. I'll put it on the telly.
-(to wife) Darling, there's a man here with our Book of the Month Club dung.
-(wife) We've no room, dear.
-Well, how many rooms have you got then?
-Well, there's only this room, a bedroom, a spare room.
-Oh well, I'll tell you what. Move everything into the main bedroom and you can use the spare room as a dung room.

Is Flying Circus ever on anymore?

Easy Rider Extraordinnaire

A Scotsman on a Horse

This is where Mrs. Shazam was so wrong. Exploding is a perfectly normal medical phenomenon. In many fields of medicine nowadays, a dose of dynamite can do a world of good. For instance, athlete's foot-an irritating condition-can be cured by applying a small charge of TNT between each toe.

say, whats brown and sounds like a bell
-i dunno what?
Duuunnnggg

i dont the flying circus is on anymore, but you can get it at various movie rentals
