What... is the Airspeed Velocity of an Unladen Swallow?

The account request procedure on DeepThought asks the applicant several questions ("What is your name?", etc.) For its amusement value, it was suggested to me that I throw in the swallow question from the movie Monty Python and the Holy Grail. The question appears amidst those related to account creation, without any context shift, so I expected it be somewhat jarring and had no idea what sort of responses I would get. As it turns out, most of those who bother to enter anything either recognize the question or attempt to come up with a suitably silly answer. Jonathan Corum has attempted to actually estimate the answer to this question.

Below are the responses received from August 1993 through November 2005, ranked by the number of times each was given. The capitalization and punctuation is that of the first version of each response that was received. There were 4233 non-empty responses during this period; only those that consisted of at least three words are included here.
