Good. Lord.

After all the times I’ve watched, rewatched, and reenacted Monty Python and the Holy Grail, I have never once correctly heard a specific lyric in Sir Robin’s minstrel song, Brave Sir Robin Ran Away

(bravely ran away, away!)

For all of my life up until this exact moment in time, I always thought it was,

“…and his linsel hacked and mangled, Brave Sir Robin…”

I had no idea what a “LINSEL” was. My brain just sort of assumed it would be some sort of antiquated name for a body part, probably the testicles or something amusing (the sort of joke I could see them making.)

Tonight, as I’m watching it, I hear it as clear as day:

“…and his LIMBS all hacked and mangled…”

Good. Lord.
