    This might degenerate quickly

    Let's have a contest to see who can come up with the most obscure Monty Python's Flying Circus quote/phrase.

    Sorry, but we must limit this to the BBC tv series only, no movies, records or live appearences allowed.:k
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    The ends can justify the means.

    Chemist, handing out prescriptions: "Who's got the chest rash?"

    Shapely woman "Me"

    Chemist "Hmmm, better get a bigger bottle"

    Is your name not Bruce?

    No, its Micheal.

    Mind if we call you Bruce, just to keep it clear.

    "Come to think of it, most people enjoy a good laugh more than I do."
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    "Some people pooh-pooh Australian table wine."

    "It has a bouquet like an Aborigine's armpit."

    Or

    "This is the wattle. Emblem of our land. You can stick it in a bottle. You can hold it in your hand." Must be said with an outrageously thick and bad Australian accent.

    Somebody in my office just commented on the fact that I was wearing a Lumberjack shirt - a red & black plaid.
    Then I asked them if they knew the classic MP Lumberjack song and they did not know it at all.

    *LOL* it's been ages but I remember a snippet....

    I cut down trees, I wear high heels, suspenders and a bra.
    I wish I'd been a girlie, just like my dear papa.

    Shut That Bloody Bazouki Off!

    Or my favorite:

    No, no - we don't have 'Rarnaby Budge' by Charles Dikkens with two 'k's the well-known Dutch author, and perhaps to save time I should add right away that we don't have 'Carnaby Fudge' by Daries Tikkens, nor 'Stickwick Stapers' by Miles Pikkens with four Ms and a silent Q, why don't you try the chemist?

    I did. They sent me here.

    This is a 12-story block combining classical neo-Georgian features with the efficiency of modern techniques. The tenants arrive here and are carried along the corridor on a conveyor belt in extreme comfort, past murals depicting Mediterranean scenes, towards the rotating knives.
