Holy Hand Grenade

Updated on October 1, 2014

The Holy Hand Grenade Of Antioch

The Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch is a fictional super weapon which features in the movie Monty Python and the Holy Grail. The Holy Hand Grenade is used to destroy the Killer Rabbit in order that the knights might continue their quest for the Holy Grail. Rather long-winded instructions for the use of the Holy Hand Grenade are found in the fictional "Book of Armaments" and can be found later on this page.

Monty Python and the Holy Grail is one of my favourite movies and the scene featuring the ridiculous Holy Hand Grenade is one of the funniest in my opinion. On this page you can watch the Holy Hand Grenade scene, buy your own version of the weapon and see associated products which feature the grenade.

I hope that you enjoy the silliness I have put together here.

The Holy Hand Grenade Scene From Monty Python And The Holy Grail

Before taking a closer look at the Holy hand Grenade of Antioch and the amusing products that are based on it, take a look at the scene from the movie, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, that it appears in.

The Holy Hand Grenade Of Antioch

As promised, here are the instructions for operating this biblical super weapon;

"And the LORD spake, saying, "First shalt thou take out the Holy Pin, then shalt thou count to three, no more, no less. Three shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the third number, be reached, then lobbest thou thy Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch towards thy foe, who being naughty in My sight, shall snuff it." Amen."

This plush Holy Hand Grenade contains a whoopee cushion, which makes a flatulent sound when squeezed or sat upon. The instructions to this Holy Hand Grenade read, "To use, squeeze the hand grenade". Also, on the packaging there is the well-known excerpt from the Book of Armaments, as is in the movie.

Chambord Liqueur is made in a specially developed facility in a castle in the Loire Valley, France. It is a liqueur made from black raspberries (they look like blackberries to me) and it is ideal for cocktail making.

Do you think these guys are fans of the Holy Hand Grenade?

They have packaged their premier liqueur in almost an exact copy of the Holy hand Grenade of Antioch from the movie Monty Python and the Holy Grail. What a great gift this would make for fans of the movie who like a drink whilst they watch for the one hundredth time!

      Well, three of the four residents of my home love Monty Python...can you guess who doesn't? Honestly, I've never watched one of the movies but I did see the play when it passed through Ottawa and enjoyed it. In any case, I think this is an excellent page dedicated to the Holy Hand Grenade.
