Ah, but you can't beat the classics: "This parrot is no more. It has ceased to be. It's expired and gone to meet its maker."
And in Fawlty Towrs:
German: Will you stop talking about the war!
Basil: Me? You started it!
German: We did not start it.
Basil: Yes you did, you invaded Poland!
"Then the highlight was a stoat rigor mortis..."
