@96, That's what I was going to say.

The little British folk, gathered 'round the wireless, listening to what the Germans thought would kill anyone listening: "Two peanuts vere valking down ze strasse. Und vun was a salted. Peanut. Ahahahahaha *thud* " ...and the Brits gaze at each other quizzically.

Also: "It's all in a day's work for...Confuse-a-Cat!"
I just had a conversation with a 20 something who saw The Meaning of Life for the first time last week, when I saw it in the theater upon release.
I had been introduced during the hours long marathons on PBS in which my brother and I would watch until we could not keep our eyes open one more minute. In my recent conversation, I started singing Every Sperm is Sacred, while recalling college- where I sat at a table of Python lovers who would discuss Mr Creosote because there was a bucket near our table. We only had regulars join us for meals- all others were too disgusted to listen to our recitations.
Though the Meaning of Life was a big part of my late adolescence, the compilation of shorts shown at the Harvard Exit circa 1980, the Dr Demento broadcasts in the 70's and the albums that were material for memorization that last to this day all contributed to my love of the absurd that Monty Python provided.

    Please wait...

    and remember to be decent to everyone
    all of the time.
