The quest for the Holy Grail

Those people who go searching for the Holy Grail; where do they actually look for it?

Do they spend all their time hunting in antiques' shops? Or do they hope to get lucky at a car-boot sale?

Maybe you missed it, but Dr. Jones found the grail back in '89.

Yeah, I did see that movie. But where is the grail now?

Palm boy said...

Stuck in the ground somewhere, i guess.

Probably some old lady in egypt is using it to hold fruit on the coffee table. :D

Dyspraxic Fundamentalist said...

Maybe.

The Holy Grail was found in the boot of an Austin Princess in a scrapyard near Totnes, and later cleaned up and made into the 'Best Paint' trophy for the North West Classic Car Club.

Win it three years in a row and it's yours!

How did you make this discovery?

UKSteve said...

Initially the letters page of the November 1985 issue of Practical Classics, followed by a lot of detective work.

Clever chap.

I am sure that it is in Rome :)

I'm quite sure by the most authoritative account that it's at the Castle Arrrghhh.

It is great to have such a learned readership.

Monty Python is the source of much inspiration.

I know where it is. It is in Robin (Batman's aggravating sidekick)'s vocabulary somewhere! "Holy GRAIL, Batman!"

As hilarious as ever.

Those thin mints tend to make me less than thin the more of them I eat, Rose!!

Holy Thin MINT, Batman!
