Well, OK, actually it's Baldrick...

This is the episode in Series 3 (Victorian, I think) where George decides he's going to become clever by giving patronage to the new dictionary Dr. Johnson has been writing for ten years. Blackadder has also written a novel, which he terms his magnum opus, to which Baldrick replies that he, too, has a 'magnificent octopus' - a novel which, I believe, reads 'There once was a sweet little sausage called Baldrick. And he lived happily ever after.'

:octopus:

Yeah, I agree. Can't believe anyone found 'Mr Bean' funny. It was as about as humour filled as a particularly virulent skin disease.

What about the new spy movie he is in??? The trailer actually looks pretty funny...of course, that could be the only funny bit of the whole film, I suppose...oh well.
