Indy?!: British Police Raid Pub Searching For Holy Grail

August 11, 2014


So apparently British police officers raided a pub in Herefordshire searching for what some people believe to be the Holy Grail (the cup Jesus drank from during the Last Supper). Is it really? I dunno, but I'm not about to drink out of it to find out. Remember what happened to the guy who chose poorly in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade? THIS. THIS HAPPENED.

The object of the police search, which was unsuccessful, was a frail wooden bowl known as the Nanteos Cup that has been attributed with healing powers since the 19th century, attracting pilgrims and others who believe it may be the Holy Grail itself.

"They turned the place upside down. They came with fiber optic cameras to look in all the corners and nooks and crannies, and under the floorboards ... they were clearly serious about it," the pub's landlady, Di Franklyn, said.

Scientists who have examined the cup have said it almost certainly dates from many centuries after the crucifixion, and is not made of the olive wood that might have been expected for a Middle Eastern drinking vessel.

Well, I suppose there's only one way to find out if it's the real Holy Grail or not. "Shoot Indy's dad in the gut?" Yep, give me your gun. "Seriously?" Hell no, I love Sean Connery -- you do it. "I'm not doing it!" Fine, we'll both hold the gun and pull the trigger at the same time. Ready? ONE...TWO...THREE! "You didn't do it." NEITHER DID YOU!

Thanks to asdfasdf, who's convinced you can drink orange juice out of the Holy Grail right after brushing your teeth and it will still taste good.

    a quest for the truth will set you free but believing your own delusions will haunt you to the grave
