No Need for Monty Python

Here was a moment I overheard on the radio a couple of weeks back, and wished I had recorded or recalled more accurately. The news reader solemnly began, "And - has the Holy Grail been found?" With barely a pause, he segued into a completely different mode: "You will probably guess the answer is No, from the fact that this is our second, rather than our first, story." Not sure if this was scripted, but it was certainly a gem.

I'm not sure American news anchors could even improvise such wit.
