When they told him at the wedding of Cana that they were out of wine he just said, "Oh that's okay, I don't drink... wine." Ruined the whole scene.

Greg's comment made me laugh out loud. I never thought I would see bela's nipples in a photo.

Christopher said...

I only see one nipple. Am I looking at this wrong?

swac said...

If I ever take communion again, I'll be thinking, "Bela Lugosi's bread..."

And it's kind of man-boobish too.

All chant in unison: "His name is Bela Lugosi."

Greg said...

"Bela Lugosi's bread..."

"Unbread, unbread, unbread..."

Short for unleavened bread of course.

Mr. Lugosi is buried at the same cemetary as my parents...
And, Christopher, I have some recordings of Dick Shawn's Bible.
