The Wisdom of Beau Peep
« on: January 23, 2007, 01:41:29 PM »
In another topic Roger Kettle spoke of the wisdom of Beau Peep.

If someone (perhaps in some post-holocaust future) found Beau Peep, what would he make of it? Would it be adopted as the new holy book?

Funnily eough, last week I wrote a series about The Nomad's latest book-writing attempt. It's called "The Book Of Very Wise Wisdom".

Interesting. Life Of Brian was a skit based on religion in general, and showed how anything could take on religious significance if you were determined enough (Scientology anyone?)

Example: Brian is pursued and loses a sandal. His followers/pursuers immediately adopt it as a religious sign, remove a single sandal and hop after him.

My favourite film of all time! That was the bit with Spike Milligan, Malc. A wonderfully brief cameo.
