Watching footage on youtube of the journalist throwing shoes at Bush. Here's something for a few minutes of non-productive fun: http://www.sockandawe.com/

And while doing that, for some existential reason, youtube brought up Monty Python and I enjoyed watching this classic again. So, I'm sharing. Monty Python definitely makes me happy.

Thank you for posting this. We consider "Monty Python" a part of our daughters' cultural education and we watch one of the 1/2 hour shows before we watch whatever family night movie we're doing. Unsurprisingly, A likes it better than B and really "gets it."

The hubs' rather reminds me of Michael Palin and I got one of his travelogues for him for Christmas called "Pole to Pole."

Your daughters are obviously getting the best in cultural education. I remember the first time someone played some Monty Python for me. I was in the choir visiting MIT where we were doing a joint concert and we stayed in the men's dorm. When one of them made a Python reference and got a puzzled look, he decided to "educafy" me and my cohorts.

I think I've seen pieces of Pole to Pole. I love all the Pythons. I saw an interview with John Cleese on youtube yesterday also in which he talked about doing the Parrot Sketch and about how he developed the Basil character for Fawlty Towers. He is just so naturally funny.

I once walked in wonderful countryside and what do I remember? Replaying Monty Python *g*

Enjoyed this, thanks.

Monty Python always makes me happy, but this is probably my all-time favorite skit of theirs ever. It pops into my head at the strangest moments. Absolutely priceless, a timeless classic.

Completely. In the interview with John Cleese I saw on youtube, he recounts one episode where he and Michael Palin were doing the sketch live and Palin responded to the inquiry of whether or not the slug talked, "Well, it mutters a bit." When Cleese got done laughing he couldn't remember where he was so he asked the audience and about forty of them popped up with the next line. He said, "I don't know why we bother."
They were wonderful.

I so adore them. You make me want to re-watch old episodes.
