In ancient times…

They very first question of the night on Monday was…
Q: At approximately 5,000 years old, what monument is the oldest possession of the British crown?

For no other reason than it got stuck in my head this morning, here's the answer:

Wow, that's actually an awesome song.

The only problem with this scene (and not really a "problem," since the comedy would suffer otherwise) is that we miss out on the song's second verse, which provides more juicy detail in this masterpiece of mixed metaphor and jumbled cultural reference. Enjoy!

'Tis a magic place

Where the moon doth rise with a dragon's face
Where the virgins lie

And the prayers of devils fill the midnight sky-hy-hy!
