Monty Python and the Holy Grail: Unladen Swallow

King Arthur and his servant, Patsy, encounter a castle guard while searching for knights to join them on their quest. As the conversation progresses, the guard ignores the King's original request to speak with his master and diverts the discussion to be about flaws in the King's statements, including how a swallow can carry a coconut.
