Friday Monty Python Funny

So, this is another example of my sense of humor.

My dad was and remains a huge, HUGE fan of Monty Python. So growing up, we kids watched it all the time. Certainly we didn’t get most of the jokes as kids, but whenever we watch episodes now, we’re rolling. (And while I’m on the subject of British comedies, “Absolutely Fabulous” is another great, great one, sweetie darling! I have yet to get that on DVD; it’s waiting in my cart on Amazon.)

I have practically the entire Python collection on DVD, to wit: the 16-ton megaset (which is the entire TV series, plus extras), “Monty Python and the Holy Grail,” “Life of Brian,” and “The Meaning of Life.” I used to have “Almost the Truth: The Lawyer’s Cut” on DVD, but I don’t anymore. Maybe I should get that again.

But, anyway, in my humble opinion, it doesn’t get any better than the following episode. (I believe this video has German subtitles, but they really don’t detract from the video at all, so just watch it and enjoy.)

This episode features an odd “Face the Press” segment, the “New Gas Cooker” sketch, the “Ministry of Silly Walks” sketch, and the ever-popular “Ethel the Frog” examination of the violent reign of the notorious Piranha brothers, Doug and Dinsdale.

Don’t forget about Spiny Norman….

“Dinsdale? …. Dinsdale? ….”

For the record – Graham Chapman was always my favorite of all the Pythons. Don’t know why. He just was.

“Dinsdale? …. Dinsdale? ….”

Enjoy! And Happy Friday!
