The Pythons (or something like that...)
I first saw this one when I was home on leave from Korea in December of 1980. As I recall, one of the major networks (so in those days one of "NBC, CBS or ABC") decided to air a special on Monty Python. As I remember it (and shortly I'll stop starting sentences with "As I..."), this was an hour long special and featured some excellent Python bits. Including the one I'm going to treat you to today. Eventually. Alright, if you must just skip to the end. I won't be that offended.
(As if there was such a thing as a "bad" Python bit. In poor taste? Sure. Overly silly? Absolutely. But bad? I don't recall many of those. YMMV.)
This Monty Python stuff may become a "Monday thing" - but I'm not sure. "Monty Monday" just doesn't sound right. I mean, it puts me in mind of male strippers. While that might be fine for the ladies, it ain't exactly my cup of tea. Not that there's anything wrong with that.
I have a theme for Friday (the Flyby, which seems popular) we'll see if I even want to have a Monday theme. Sometimes having "theme" days makes the blogging a bit easier. Sometimes not. We shall see.
I give you...
