Not so much a fly as a plummet...

Somebody used to say that to me years ago - anyone know where it’s from?

Monty Python...

Shepherd: Exactly. Birds is the key to the whole problem. It's my belief that these sheep are laborin' under the misapprehension that they're birds. Observe their behavior. Take for a start the sheeps' tendency to 'op about the field on their back legs. Now witness their attmpts to fly from tree to tree. Notice that they do not so much fly as... plummet. (Baaa baaa... flap flap... thud.) Observe for example that ewe in that oak tree. She is clearly trying to teach her lamb to fly. (baaaaa... thud) Talk about the blind leading the blind.

Ah, thanks Desmond, that's solved something I have been wondering about for decades. Thanks also for the script link. I had to LOL at the punchline:
"Because of the enormous commercial possibilities should he succeed."
:bouncy:
Brilliant. Bonkers. Love it.
