Question: When Michael Palin is thrown into the fiery pit, he is either saying Yeeeoohhhhhhh or Yelllowwwww (meaning that was his favourite colour). Despite watching it many times, I'm still not sure which one it is...so does anyone know?

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: It's kind of both. He says "Blue", then realises he got it wrong and starts to say "No, yellow!" but then screams as he is thrown into the pit, so it's like "Blue. No, yell. Ooooooohhhhh!"
