Camelot


We are reading the musical "Camelot" in English. It's actually pretty funny. I got the part of Guenevere and we made it to the middle of scene three today. We also got our rubrics for the stupid Arthurian projects. I am writing a sequel to Camelot. Actually a parody. Here's an excerpt-



“Si..Sire?”
“What is it Bedivere? Quit staring at me like I’m the living dead or something!”
“Uh.. Sire?”
“Yes. Yes. What is it, good knight?”
“You are the living dead.”
“I’m what? Nonsense!”
“Sir, Mordred killed you with a mortal blow to the head. Remember?”
“Ah yes, well, I’m not quite dead yet.”
“So I see.”
“What was it you were saying about my kingly brow?”
“Mordred sort of severed it, Sire.”
“How do you figure that?”
“Have a look for yourself”

Bedivere held up a mirror. Arthur looked in. “Well that is a bit of a flesh wound isn’t it? Looks painful.”
“Is it, Sire?”
“I’m not sure. My nerve endings don’t seem to be responding like they used to.”


Yes, yes. It is kind of retarded I realize, but hey, it's the best I could do. Soooooo... tonight I have to go to Wal-Mart with some of the FCCLA members to get fabric for the Christmas Stockings we are making. Sounds fun, right? Today is going to be kind of blah, probably studying in World Studies and Geometry because I have tests in those two classes tomorrow. Not an extreme amount of things going on at the moment. Sort of a boring day really. And week for that matter.

Yes, yes, what I'm hearing as I read your parody, is that my husband and your father have fed you too much Monty Python. Actually, it will probably be the most original parody your teacher has to read over.

I am actually looking to Monty Python for inspiration on this. Notice the few choice lines from "Holy Grail"?
