OK, there's this thing that I saw. Apparently, I am the only one I know who saw it. But I saw it. It was there, on the TV. I didn't make it up; I swear I'm not crazy. That's where you come in.

It was this black and white clip. There were guys in lab coats (presumably even in a lab). The premise of this clip was that a group of scientists had finally made small enough camels and large enough needles as to pass the former through the latter. (I believe someone, somewhere, had already achieved this feat with these two objects in reverse order.)

For those of us who don't know, this is a reference to a proverb taught by Jesus Christ: "It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven". Some scholars believe the word "camel" was mistranslated, and should read "...easier for a rope to go through..." But, I digress. Someone please say that they know what I'm talking about and saw this clip that I really did see, and prove this node's title true. Do it for the node.
Another situation has come up:
I have this sound bite running through my head, but it's missing a word, and I don't know from whence it came or who said it.
I hear it as a little british boy speaking: "I'm -not- a ______, I'm a -boy-". Seems like he was pretending to be something that he obviously wasn't, but when someone noticed him they played along so well that the boy told them he really wasn't this thing he was pretending to be...
Why is my mind so crammed with stuff that everything gets muddled?
REDEMPTION IS MINE.
Thanks oh so much to Spackle for enlightening me. The camel skit was a SNL skit and a transcript can be found at http://snltranscripts.jt.org/scripts/96cheyward.phtml
