Subject: Monty Python

Written By: JamieMcBain on 12/14/04 at 8:47 am

Does anyone here remember Monty Python? I think it's one of the most funniest shows from the 70's, I especially The Dead Parrot Sketch and The Lumberjack Song!  ;D

One of my favorite sketches was the "Twit of the Year"

You can still watch the show on the BBC ( I get it on channel 135 - Dish Network)

Amazing show - without sounding too cliched, it pushed the boundaries...

That's not to say everything on it was a classic, but that'd be nit-picking...

But for all that, it's quite amazing how it hit big in the US (sometime after the show had actually finished), in the way it did...

And don't forget the inspiration for all this (although people do), was a guy called Spike Milligan - a much-missed genius...Goon Show anyone?

I think "Life of Brian" is one of the funniest movies ever made. That scene when Michael Palin as a lisping Pontius Pilate talks about his good friend "Biggus Dickus" just kills me every time!

Im not sure what the sketch was called, but it had John Cleese as a principal of a boarding school. Parents come into his office to talk about their son, and Cleese says, "Oh, he's dead."


Thats the only one I remember, but it cracks me up every time I think about it...Ofcourse a lot more stuff happens in the sketch, but thats one of the dryest, and funniest lines Ive ever seen delivered.

I was in the butchers at the weekend and they were trying to remember the words to the Spam song!  I'm not sure which word they couldn't remember!!

Most of my 'memories' come from hearing the albums from the films and shows that my brothers borrowed from the library.  I had been able to recite all of the Dead Parrot Sketch for years before I saw it on the tv.  I particularly like some of the more obscure ones such as The Bruces and Australian Wines ("It's got a kick like the hind leg of a donkey")

Does anyone else have a crush on Michael Palin?

My favourite scene from Holy Grail is when the prince is imprisoned in the tower of Swamp Castle, and his dad  is trying to give instructions to the very very thickheaded guard.  Especially when the guard smiles encouragingly at the prince as he tries to get help.

Somewhere at home I have "Monty Pyhton's Big Red Book" (which is blue  :P)

In it there is an upside down page (very droll  :P) entitled "An Aussie Lament"

I read it so many times I can recite it by heart (impressive for me as I have always felt poetry in the main was a waste of time...  :o)


"An Aussie Lament" by M Python :


Australians are lovely lads
We're really bonza blokes
Sheilas, beer, and no-one's queer
Except in pommy* jokes

Australians are lovely lads
They're God's own chosen race
If we ever see a fairy pom*
We'll smash him in the face


* For any North Americans who may not be across the term "Poms" or "Pommies" - it is what Aussies sometime refer to Englishmen as.....

It must be noted that the Python team got their own back with interest in the last verse :

Australians like dressing up
In skirts and having fun
And that's what we were all doing
When the Vice Squad came along


;D ;D ;D ;D :o :P

I too have "Monty Pyhton's Big Red Book" and I tried once to remember the Horace poem, which started:

"Much to his Mum and Dad's dismay. Horace ate himself one day".

Even up to this day that is all I can remember.
