Very funny :2funny:, but you should have put the youtube link up to give it full effect... and dammit, I can't find it for you - it was there....

This is the best context I could find at short notice -

[discussing how the war began]

Private Baldrick: I heard it started when some fella called Archie Duke shot an ostrich 'cos he was hungry.

Captain Blackadder: I think you mean that it started when the Arch Duke of Austro-Hungary got shot.

Private Baldrick: No, there was definitely an ostrich involved.



Whilst I loved that clip, this one is rather more poignant...
