Hi everyone! Ok, I need to pick your collective QI brains if I may?

I was watching Qi clips with a colleague earlier, and I'm sure there was one episode where Stephen Fry referred to the baby Jesus in a really creepy voice and (I think) Jimmy Carr was saying how scary it was when he did that.

The only clip I can find is with Phil Jupitus telling Stephew Fry that you can only say Jesus if you say 'the ickle baby' in front of it, but none of the guests react to the way he says it. Can anyone help, or have I just completely imagined the whole thing??

Hi athenajm and welcome to the forum - I can't answer that one myself but maybe some of the others might so I'm keeping this thread bumped.

In the third episode of the C series, they are talking about 10 Downing Street, and that the door can't be opened from the outside. Jimmy wonders what happens if there's no one inside to open the door, even after Stephen says there's always someone inside, and finally Stephen sort of sings "There's always someone in there" in a creepy way and Jimmy gets scared.

I don't recall a similar situation with Jesus though.

Not an easy mistake to make, IMHO

If Phil Jupitus were Jesus I might become a Christian.

Hello there athenajm.

Who is Stephew Fry?

Speaking of Jesus. In one of the Christmas specials, someone was in the audience who resembled Jesus, and was pointed out by one of the panelists. Who was that guy?

Hi, Athenajm

If Phil Jupitus can be mistaken for Jesus, could that make Johnny Vegas Johnny the Baptist?

I'm wondering how Phill Jupitus can be mistaken for Phil Jupitus. Who is Phil Jupitus?

An audience member. Although IIRC he did look a bit like a younger, slightly hairier, Bob Harris.

CB27 has it bang on with the Downing Street joke. There was a baby Jesus joke relying on its similarity in sound to "the baby cheeses", in the episode with Graeme Garden.
