No No Danny thats what I meant    smile I was kinda explaining how people from Ireland, Wales and Scotland have there own regional identities but didn't understand why people call English people British. I guess it was kinda sarcastic but it musn't have come across that way. I'm sorry if it was a bit unclear   smile But I agree that people from England are English not British   cool

edit - Does an English TOTPD   tongue

Off-topic again
I was going to do a post like danny but I decided not to at that precise moment of time.  smile

I just remembered though an Indycar race where it had the Scottish driver Dario Franchitti and Englishman Mark Blundell. Dario was marked down Scottish but Blundell was marked down as British. Which was stupid IMHO.

Edit]Back on topic, probably my favourite bit is
All (pondering): Arrrrrgggggggghhhhhhhhhhh?
Bedivier [looks behind him]: OOOOOOOHHHH!
Lancelot : No, "Arrrrrrrrrrghhhhhh" - back of the throat.
Bedivier : No no, "OOOOOOOHHHH!" as in suprise and alarm!
Lancelot : Oh you mean "AAAAHHHHH!"?
Bedivier : Yeah, that's it! "AAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH!!!"

You're a she! That explains a lot!  smile A man would have responded to my post thusly:

"Danny, you the f**k asked you? P**s off!"

All the same, good to meet you!  smile

And so I don't get a bollocking for another post off topic, I'll state for the books that I love Monty Python - it has me in stitches! Never loses its charms, even after all these years!

I said I'm thirty seven.  I'm not old.

king of the 'o?
the britons.
'o are the britons?
well, we all are.  We are all britons and I am your king.
I didn't know we had a king.  I thought we was an altolavis collective.
you're fooling yourself.  we're living in a dictatorship.  A self perpetuating ottocrasy in which the working class...

WOMAN:No one lives there.
ARTHUR:Then who is your lord?
WOMAN:We don't have a lord.
ARTHUR:What?
DENNIS:
I told you. We're an anarcho-syndicalist commune. We take it in turns to act as a sort of executive officer for the week,...
ARTHUR:Yes.
DENNIS:...but all the decisions of that officer have to be ratified at a special bi-weekly meeting...
ARTHUR:Yes, I see.
DENNIS:...by a simple majority in the case of purely internal affairs,...
ARTHUR:Be quiet!
DENNIS:..but by a two-thirds majority in the case of more major--
ARTHUR:Be quiet! I order you to be quiet!
WOMAN:Order, eh? Who does he think he is? Heh.
ARTHUR:I am your king!
WOMAN:Well, I didn't vote for you.
ARTHUR:You don't vote for kings.
WOMAN:Well, how did you become King, then?
ARTHUR:The Lady of the Lake,...
    [angels sing]
    ...her arm clad in the purest shimmering samite, held aloft Excalibur from the bosom of the water signifying by Divine Providence that I, Arthur, was to carry Excalibur.
    [singing stops]
    That is why I am your king!
DENNIS:Listen. Strange women lying in ponds distributing swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony.
ARTHUR:Be quiet!
DENNIS:Well, but you can't expect to wield supreme executive power just 'cause some watery tart threw a sword at you!
ARTHUR:Shut up!
DENNIS:I mean, if I went 'round saying I was an emperor just because some moistened bint had lobbed a scimitar at me, they'd put me away!
ARTHUR:Shut up, will you? Shut up!
DENNIS:Ah, now we see the violence inherent in the system.
ARTHUR:Shut up!
DENNIS:Oh! Come and see the violence inherent in the system! Help! Help! I'm being repressed!
ARTHUR:Bloody peasant!
DENNIS:Oh, what a give-away. Did you hear that? Did you hear that, eh? That's what I'm on about. Did you see him repressing me? You saw it, didn't you?

At work yesterday my mate was explaining the difference between metal and masonry drill bits. He said that the ends were made of Tungsten Carbide..... I started to giggle and couldn't resist saying 'Tungsten Carbide Drills!?!?' in a very loud Yorkshire accent.... I got a very confused look.  smile

Well everyone is entitled to a different opinion, but what is the point of posting in a thread dedicated to the fantastic 6 if you don't like it?

I watched the Video (yes Video, how prehistoric) of Monty Python live at the Hollywood Bowl. The part that made me laugh the most was the 'Gay Judges' sketch, where Micheal and Eric had some rather fruity undergarment on underneath their robes.  tongue

ABF: I love that song, and basically every song Monty Python have ever done... Other amazing songs include Eric the Half a Bee and Oliver Cromwell.

The most interesting thing about King Charles I is that he was 5 foot 6 inches tall at the beginning of his reign but only 4 foot 8 inches tall at the end of it. Because of....

Ahem.

Coilette: I hate you. That's the coolest poster ever. Damn you!
Also, is that sketch the one where Eric Idle says "I could stamp my little feet..."? I'll need to dig out my dad's old videos again, I haven't seen the show for a while.

The best sketches (IMHO) are The Dead Parrot Sketch, the Spanish Inquisition, Gangs of Old Ladies Terrorising Fit Young Men and, of course, Bicycle Repair Man.

Bicycle repair man?! But how?....

But favourites from the series include: Upperclass Twit of the Year, Dead Parrot Sketch, Old Ladies Re-enacment group and of course all of Mr Gilliams sketches.

Ah yes, he was ran over by an MG Roadster, if I'm not mistaken. And... everyone, jump over 2 matchboxes if you can!

Don't forget:

Immanuel Kant was a real pissant who was very rarely stable,
Heidegger, Heidegger was a boozy beggar who could think you under the table,
David Hume could out-consume Schopenhauer and Hegel,
And Wittgenstein was a beery swine who was just as schloshed as Schlegel.
There's nothing Nietzsche couldn't teach ya 'bout the turning of the wrist,
Socrates himself was permanently pissed...
John Stuart Mill, of his own free will, with half a pint of shandy was
particularly ill,
Plato, they say, could stick it away, half a crate of whiskey every day,
Aristotle, Aristotle was a beggar for the bottle,
Hobbes was fond of his dram,
And Rene Descartes was a drunken fart, "I drink therefore I am."
Yes, Socrates himself is particularly missed;
A lovely little thinker but a bugger when he's pissed.

Is anyone familiar with the Monty Python sketch: The Bishop?  That was by far the funniest one I've ever seen!  I loved how he made an enterance by tapping his 'Bishop Stick', and I liked his theme music, too! 

My favorite MP movie has got to be "And Now For Something Completely Different".  Plus, I have far too many favorite sketches to name, but The Bishop is my number one.  If I could find that one on DVD, I would be in seventh heaven!

I simply cannot stand by and *not* post in a Monty Python thread, even though I'm a newbie. My three big obsessions include Futurama, Aladdin (yes, the Disney film..) and Monty Python ^_^

The Bishop Sketch is indeed hilarious. I have it right here on DVD, which makes me feel kind of bad, since KurtPikachu2001 wants it so badly. I swear, if I had the slightest idea of how I could rip it, I would! Oh yep, definitely spread the love.

What sketch in what show is it where Michael Palin  says "That's all very interesting because I'm now entirely made of tin" (or something like that)?

I think he's dressed up like a scotsman, but that's all I remember... been driving me nuts for a coupla days now. I tried googling for it, but no cigar.

"Must be a king."
"Why do you say that?"
"Cuz he doesn't have shit all over him!"

 laff

The Minestry of Silly walks was John Cleese's least faveorite skethes, aparently.     confused

I also love the Baravian Resuraunt [From Monty Pythons Flindeger Zicus (Treble before my bad Greman!)]

"He has given them the menu in bavaria, yes Bavaria! and has scared them shitless!"

Hell, I love Monty Python so much Tony, from my comis strip is called Tony M Nyphots, which is an anagram of Monty Python, in fact, that was actually used in an episode, where they had the pantomime horses fight for the job at a merchant bank over the anagramed credits.
