Harold Camping has confirmed that work is well underway on what’s set to be not only the final film in the Carry On franchise, but also the final film of all time.
Filming for Carry On Camping: The Four Whoreswomen Of The Acockalips has seen the entire original cast return unto earth for what director, Mel Gibson, is describing as a “hilarious slap-stick mixture of theological prophesying and doomsday double-entendres.”
Harold Camping, casting himself as the main protagonist, plays a cheeky, God-fearing vessel of the Lord’s message who must warn local Butlin’s residents of impending Armageddon whilst avoiding the persistent advances of Barbara Windsor in increasingly unreliable bikinis.
Mel’s role in the production is something he feels he was born again to do, “I’ve always been a great fan of unsubstantiated religious bullshit and overt sexism so this seemed like a natural step for me.”
He was also quick to quash rumours of unrest on the set caused by Camping’s ‘unpredictability’. “It’s not been a problem. In fact, Mr Camping and Mrs Windsor blend in perfectly with the rest of the un-dead cast. And, let me tell you, Barbara’s delivery of ‘Ooo, ‘arold, you are naughty!’ is more than worthy of being the last catchphrase audiences will ever hear.”
With the first 200 million cinema goers guaranteed free popcorn and a place in the afterlife, Harold is sure the film will prove a rapturous hit with unworthy sinners everywhere. He’s also certain the feature will hit its confidently penciled-in release date of 21st October 2011, despite his recent stroke:
“We’re shtill righ on shezhule. Leht ther be nho mifundhershandy, the worhld whil defineerly en on okshober chwenty frwirst aht shicks pee em. Ahnd agen aht nye pee em, wif han addishional mhidnigh fiewing ihn shelected shinemas. End-thimes mhay bhe shubjek to shange.”
Hat-tip to Oxbridge for saying 'Carry On Camping' in a thread a few weeks back. This one's been lingering since then.
