from The League of Gentlemen. A totally off the wall British comedy show. In fact it wasn't British it was English, no wait a minute, it wasn't even English they were all Yorkshire men. Anyway:
Policeman enters spooky "local shop" to investigate dissapearence of young hiker. After interviewing the shop owners he reluctantly decides there is nothing to find here and is about to leave. He just opens the door and is standing on the threshold when the lady of the shop says
"We didn't burn him"
What then follows is a spoof of the movie the Wicker man.
You probably had to be there to appreciate this humour.

League Of Gentleman is fantastic and filmed near to me - Mettricks butchers does great pork pies.
It is actually mostly filmed in a place called Hadfield although the "Local Shop" was filmed in Yorkshire.
The show is full of one liners
My favourite show for one liners was "Life On Mars" a UK series where a policeman finds himself sent back in time to join a very un-politically correct police squad in the 70s. The main character had some cracking one liners as follow
Someone needs to take a look at you boss, you're as white as a ginger bird's arse!
Drugs eh? What's the point. They make you forget, make you talk funny, make you see things that aren't there. My old grandma got all of that for free when she had a stroke.
He's got fingers in more pies than a leper on a cookery course.
