    Happy International Monty Python Day

    It's......
    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

    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    Let's not be didactic in this profession, because that is a path to disillusion and irrelevancy.

    Six seasons and a movie!

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    Bravely bold Sir Robin rode forth from Camelot!
    He was not afraid to die, oh brave Sir Robin!
    He was not at all afraid to be killed in nasty ways, brave, brave, brave, brave Sir Robin!
    He was not in the least bit scared to be mashed into a pulp, or to have his eyes gouged out, and his elbows broken!
    To have his kneecaps split, and his body burned away, and his limbs all hacked and mangled, brave Sir Robin!
    His head smashed in and heart cut out, and his liver removed, and his bowels unplugged, and his nostrils raped and his bottom burned off and his penis...

    I found this old post on Metafilter asking "what did nerds recite before Monty Python existed?" My guess: Tom Lehrer.

    Ah, but they aren't random lines. I fart in your general direction! No, these are memorable lines. It's not much different than a buncha meat heads sitting in a bar reminiscing about memorable plays or games (where were you when the Immaculate Reception occurred? Franco Harris, they don't make 'em like him any more....)

    When we went to Scotland a few years ago we went to Doune Castle where some scenes from MP&THG were filmed. We did not bring coconuts but some galloping did occur.

    Crunchy Frog (The Whizzo Chocolate Company) is my favorite.

    I think today's foodies might have an appreciation for Ram's Bladder Cup, made of fresh Cornish ram's bladder, emptied, steamed, seasoned with sesame seeds, whipped into a fondue, and garnished with lark's vomit.

    I guess I'm one of the few that doesn't find much amusement in Monty Python.

    Dingo: You must spank her well, and after you are done with her, you may deal with her as you like... and then... spank me.
    All: And me. And me too. And me.
    Dingo: Yes. Yes, you must give us all a good spanking.
    Dingo: And after the spanking, the oral sex.
    Galahad: Well, I could stay a bit longer...

    When I first came here, this was all swamp. Everyone said I was daft to build a castle on a swamp, but I built in all the same, just to show them. It sank into the swamp. So I built a second one. That sank into the swamp. So I built a third. That burned down, fell over, then sank into the swamp. But the fourth one stayed up. And that's what you're going to get, Lad, the strongest castle in all of England.
