    Is there a title higher than God? If there is I’m sure that Tamaki is figuring how to get it.

    Bernard: Well take the Foreign Office, first you get the CMG then the KCMG then the GCMG. The Commander of the Order of Saint Michael and Saint George, Knight Commander of Saint Michael and Saint George, Knight Grand Cross of Saint Michael and Saint George. Of course in the Service CMG stands for call me God and KCMG for kindly call me God.

    Jim Hacker: What does GCMG stand for?

    Bernard: God calls me God.

    Doing the Honours, Yes Minister

    Such an easy target. Is that the best he can do?

    If Brian took on a more conservative theology he would be one of the greatest Christian leaders this country has ever seen.

    @Shunda: Because he’s a charismatic charlatan and if he was more conservative he’d appeal to a larger base of those with a predisposition to being deceived (in terms of exmining ideas which come from those in certain positions)?

    Well, since Tamaki, for all his faults (numerous IMHO) seems to have been misquoted or at least misunderstood on this theological point, I don’t see much point in reworking such a tired old joke. Desperate for inspiration so pick an easy target maybe.

    Brian, the babe they called Brian,
    he grew, he grew, and grew,
    grew up to be, grew up to be,
    a boy called Brian. A boy called Brian,
    he had arms, and legs, and hands, and feet,
    the boy, whose name was Brian. ….. (etc … stirring music … apologies to Monty Python)

    That was one of the best scenes in the series.

    Doncha just love Brian T ,he gives the anti Christian bigots such a platform.

    Let’s see now, Mohammed cartoons anyone? No, didn’t think so.
    And while I enjoyed The Life of B I don’t buy the writers claim it was an attack on organized religion. That being the case , let’s have a skit on The Life of Mohamed, any takers? Didn’t think so.

    kowtow – Yes Minister / Yes PM has some eternal truths about public administration. Terry Gilliam’s film Brazil is also a powerful satire of bureaucracy and technocracy.

    There’s a deep strain (stain?) of millenarian, Old Testament and prophetic Christianity in Maoridom. I was reminded of this after re-reading Shadbolt’s Season of the Jew. Tamaki is just the latest manifestation.

    I did promote “Everybody Draw Mohammed Day”. And why not have a skit on the life of Mohammed? Hell, I’m sure there’s some humour that can be found in his marriages.

    I do enjoy http://www.jesusandmo.net/ (although in deference to the admittedly recent rules about depicting Mohammed in some sects of Islam, it is noted that it’s a stunt double being depicted – no piss taking at all.)
