I just saw a UTube clip of the old Danny Kaye movie, "The Court Jester" where a witch tries to tell Danny Kaye that "The Pellet with the Poison is in the Vessel with the Pestle. The Chalice with the Palace Holds the Brew that is True."

I remember seeing that movie on TV as a kid and that part of the movie where Danny Kaye has to remember that line (the witch is trying to let Danny Kaye survive a jousting combat where he would certainly be killed if things were done fairly.) I still laugh out loud when I see that clip!!

Classic stuff!!!

Hawkins: I've got it! I've got it! The pellet with the poison's in the vessel with the pestle; the chalice from the palace has the brew that is true! Right?

Griselda
: Right. But there's been a change: they broke the chalice from the palace!

Hawkins
: They broke the chalice from the palace?

Griselda
: And replaced it with a flagon.

Hawkins
: A flagon...?

Griselda
: With the figure of a dragon.

Hawkins
: Flagon with a dragon.

Griselda
: Right.

Hawkins
: But did you put the pellet with the poison in the vessel with the pestle?

Griselda
: No! The pellet with the poison's in the flagon with the dragon! The vessel with the pestle has the brew that is true!

Hawkins
: The pellet with the poison's in the flagon with the dragon; the vessel with the pestle has the brew that is true.

Griselda: Just remember that.


Kind Regards,

Chase

Thank you Chase. I don't know how to post a U Tube Link.

I love that clip, especially the first half of it when they are trying to communicate where the poison is.

I constantly repeat that same line after listening to someone give a confusing explanation to something.
