Funnily enough, I may have mentioned in "Anuder Thrad" that this lady:

became mayoress of a Welsh town that had The Life of Brian for things like this:

still banned since no one bothered to reverse it. When she was made mayoress, there was a "cool idea" to have a showing of the film only to find out from the owner--whose family owned the one fucking cinema--that it was still banned.

Banned was lifted. Other Pythons came to the premiere.

And once people saw all the snakes heading there, they freaked out and no one wound up going to the theater after all. :(
