Modern day myrrh


When I read that, I imediately thought of this little ditty by Rhett & Link.

I thought of this old National Lampoon Radio Hour bit:

Everyone knows the proper answer to the question “Well, what is myrrh, anyway?” is “It is a valuable balm.”

No one knows what a balm’s gonna do. They’re unpredictable.


I suppose it comes from balm trees.

This is what I thought of immediately: Peter Cook and Dudley Moore, “Gospel Truth”.

That’s the relevant part, but the whole thing is funny.

There’s also a longer video version, but it handles the myrrh differently, so to speak.
