I guess they just couldn't compete with the endless stream of surreal comedy coming out of the Vatican. They couldn't top the script-writing they did for the Monty Python team.

This was voted the funniest gag at the Edinburgh Fringe:
"I keep randomly shouting out 'Broccoli' and 'Cauliflower' - I think I might have florets".
I thought this gag was funnier:

The Government is also determined to invest in the energy sources of the future, providing energy security and lower prices. That’s why we’ve announced plans to design, develop and build a fusion power plant by 2040, to provide clean energy and position the UK as the leading nation of this exciting new technology.
