Monte Python

BamBam dedicated a whole post to me today. I'm blow away. I laughed myself silly because he posted most of my favorite Monte Python lines collected over the years. For those of us that "get it," we can hear the troupe actually saying these lines (and whistling, too). We've had some great comic groups in the United States, but nothing compares with this eclectic, perennially funny group of Englishmen (and one American). I doubt anything ever will. I used to watch it right before Benny Hill (who was much more slap-sticky, but was usually good for a few large-breasted women in bikinis running amok).

The dialogue in Python came so fast that I often had difficulty understanding what they were saying. The remedy? I used to repeat the lines (complete with the British accent) until I thought I sounded just like them. This British accent thing was a skill I used once to pick up a girl working at a movie theater in Texas, but that's a story for another time.

Thanks BamBam. We can all use a good laugh now and again.

My house finally sold in WA. Just means it is more likely that I'll see you in Vegas before home in WA.

We're in Oregon and loving it.

Looking forward to seeing you when you're back.

Take Care,

Happy it had the proper effect Doc. Big smiles here, knowing that you got a chuckle out of it.

Now if you can just "answer me, these questions three." So I can find out if "coconuts migrate."

Be safe !
