Now this is an interesting twist of fate

There is a Welsh place called Aberystwyth, where they banned Monty Python's classic comedy movie Life of Brian back when it first came out. The ban has never been lifted.

Now the new mayor of the place wants to lift the ban.

This is in itself only somewhat interesting for the rest of us, who can only shake our heads and wonder why the ban wasn't lifted a long time ago. Or rather, it would only be that, if it wasn't because of why the mayor is. The new mayor of Aberystwyth is Sue Jones-Davies, a former actress, probably best known for her role as Judith Iscariot, in (you guessed it) Life of Brian. If you can't remember the name of the character, it was the girlfriend of Brian.

So, she became the mayor of a place where her most well-known role cannot be seen.
