abstract
  • The Bridge Keeper is the secondary antagonist of the cult classic British comedy film, Monty Python and the Holy Grail. He watches over the Bridge of Death, which spans the Gorge of Eternal Peril. He asks anyone who wishes to cross three questions. If they get one wrong, they are magically hurled into the gorge. He often used clever tricks, such as asking Sir Lancelot simple questions, then adding more difficult ones for Sir Robin. He was killed when King Arthur turned one of his questions back on him. He couldn't answer, and was hurled into the gorge. The conversation ended like this: Bridge Keeper-"What is the air-speed velocity of an unladen swallow?" King Arthur- "What do you mean? African or European swallow?" Bridge Keeper-"I don't know that! No, WAI-AAAAUUUUGGGHHHH!".
