The world, I sometimes feel, is divided into two categories: the Pythonites, and the non-Pythonites. It took me a while to even understand what they were talking about, and some of the stuff I really don’t get (hello Meaning of Life). But together the comedy troupe known as Monty Python have produced moments of sheer comedic brilliance.
The other day I had a sudden hankering to watch some Monty Python, and good time was had by all. I watched clips of old favourites – the French Taunters (from Holy Grail), the Latin lesson from Brian, the mattress skit, Ministry of Silly Walks, Silly Job Interview, and Nudge Nudge, which actually has a punch line (and a pretty good one, too). To name a few. And I discovered some new ones, of which Flying Lesson and Pope and Michaelangelo are my favourites.
I had a hard time deciding which video to post, because, really, there are so many good ones. But in the end, I decided to go for the classic dead parrot. Enjoy.
