The funniest Blackadder exchange?

General Melchett: Is this true, Blackadder? Did Captain Darling pooh-pooh you? Captain Blackadder: Well, perhaps a little. General Melchett: Well, then, damn it all! What more evidence do you need? The pooh-poohing alone is a court martial offense! Captain Blackadder: I can assure you, sir, that the pooh-poohing was purely circumstantial. General Melchett: Well, I hope so, Blackadder. You know, if there's one thing I've learnt from being in the Army, it's never ignore a pooh-pooh. I knew a Major, who got pooh-poohed, made the mistake of ignoring the pooh-pooh. He pooh-poohed it! Fatal error! 'Cos it turned out all along that the soldier who pooh-poohed him had been pooh-poohing a lot of other officers who pooh-poohed their pooh-poohs. In the end, we had to disband the regiment. Morale totally destroyed... by pooh-pooh!

Or do you disagree.
