The purpose of this thread is to create a collaborative 'Monty Python's Flying Circus' spoof using 'Futurama' characters, created and supplemented to by anyone on this board who wishes to participate. How it works is this: One person, namely, me, will start by writing a whole scene, or part of a scene, 'Monty Python' style. (It doesn't need to be very long, but should have at least one punch line) Then, the next person to post should add on to the scene, or cut to a new one. And this will continue for as long as people are interested.
Note: For those of you not familiar with 'Monty Python's Flying Circus', just keep in mind that it doesn't need to have any plot whatsoever and doesn't even have to make sense, just be funny.

I considered putting this thread under 'General Disscussion', but it's more of a fiction than a discussion.

Before we begin, I'd just like to axe if anyone has any questions.

Yes, I was wondering if things will be getting silly? Because if there's anything I won't have, it's things getting silly.

Come on, no laughs? Hm? If I mention I have a silly walk, will that make any difference? It goes step, step, step, fall down, step, step, step, fall down. Not funny? Oh well, seems I'm no fun anymore. Anyway, you're stuck with me. And as it seems that there's no more questions.... Here I go! Is it a stockbroker? Is it a quantity Surveyor? Is it a church warden? NO! It's Xansomebody!

Leela: Hello?

Leela: Yes.

Leela: Hello?
Caller: *mutters*
Leela: Oh, yes, right, right.
(She walks up to the large viewscreen on the wall, and then turns to face the camera)

(The professor leans over and places Leonard Nimoy's Head on the table, dressed up a lá his one man play, 'Vincent')
(The screen changes to Vincent Van Gogh's 'Starry Night')
Leela: So... You're Vincent?
Nimoy: No, you see, that's a common miconception. I'm actually his brother, Theo Van Gogh.
Leela: Oh... So, what can you tell us about your brother's art, Theo?
Nimoy: Oh, I don't know too much about that.
Leela: Well, you see... You're supposed to be telling us about it.
Nimoy: Well, you've probably all seen my brother's works. However, you've probably not seen his family tree. I could tell you about that.
Leela: Well... Ok.
Nimoy: Well, see, we were the Van Goghs, and up the fanily line we have our cousin, Pleese Gogh, and his mother and Father, Stop 'n' Gogh and TellumTo Gogh. And then, to the left side of the tree, we have the nephews, Round 'nd Round We Gogh, and Ive Got Ta Gogh. And then over here...
Leela: Wait, you're not Van Gogh! You're Leonard Nimoy's Head!
Nimoy: Uh, no I'm not...
Leela: Yes you are!

AND NOW . . . Above unoccupied (for 52 53 days) New New York 3004 inside the DOOP warship Nimbus

Cut to Zapp Brannigan's office, Brannigan is seated in his velour bed

Brannigan: Come in, what do you want?
Private Fry enters and salutes.
Fry: I'd like to leave the Earthican Army, please, sir.
Brannigan: Good heavens man, why?
Fry: It's dangerous. There are people with positron shooters out there, sir. Real guns, sir. Not toy ones, sir. Proper ones, sir. They've all got 'em. All of 'em, sir. And some of 'em have got hover tanks.
Brannigan: Fry, they are on our side.
Fry: And grenades, sir. And machine guns, sir. So I'd like to leave, sir, before I get killed, please.
Brannigan: Fry, you've only been in the army a day.
Fry: I know sir but people get killed, properly dead, sir, no like those FPS games on the internet, sir. A dude was telling me, if you're in the army and there's a war you have to go and fight.
Brannigan: That's true.
Fry: Well I mean, damn, I mean if it was a big war we would all be killed.
Brannigan: Who told you about our strategic plans? Our finely laid battle plans depend on the concept of taking ridicoulsy high casualties.
Fry: I asked them to put it on my form, sir - no killing.
Brannigan: Fry: are you a Neutral sympathiser?
Fry: No sir, I'm not a Neutral, sir. I'm a coward.
Brannigan: Same difference. Now go sit in the corner.
Fry: Yes sir.
Knock at the door, Kif  enters, and salutes, halfheartedly.
Kif: Two civilian gentlemen to see you ... (with a voice laced with contempt) sir!
Brannigan: Show them in please, Kif, then go prepare my bath ... and switch the blades in the razor this time for gods sake.
Kif: Mr Donbot and Mr Clamps.
The two robots  enter. They wear Mafia suits and dark glasses.
Donbot: Good morning, Captain Brannigan.
Brannigan: Good morning gentlemen. Now what can I do for you.
Clamps: (looking round office casually)You've ... you've got a nice spaceship here, captain.
Brannigan: Yes.
Clamps: We wouldn't want anything to happen to it.
Brannigan: What?
Donbot: No, what my associate means is it would be a shame if... (he knocks something off the bedtable)
Brannigan: Oh.
Donbot: Oh sorry, Captain.
Brannigan: Well don't worry about that. But please do sit down.
Clamps: No, we prefer to stand, thank you, Captain.
Brannigan: All right. All right. But what do you want?
Donbot: What do we want, ha ha ha.
Clamps: HA HA HA HA!!.
Donbot: The Captain's a joker, Clamps. How many hover tanks you got on this ship, Captain?
Brannigan: About five hundred altogether.
Clamps: Five hundred! Hey!
Donbot: You ought to be careful, Captain..
Brannigan: We are careful, extremely careful.
Donbot: 'Cos things break, don't they?
Brannigan: Break?
Clamps: Well everything breaks, don't it Captain. (he clamps something on desk) Oh dear.
Donbot: Oh see my associates's unstable Captain, and when he gets unhappy he clamps things. Like say, he don't feel the Earthican Army’s playing fair by him, he may start clamping things, Captain.
Brannigan: What is all this about?
Clamps: How many men you got here, Captain?
Brannigan: Oh, er ... seven thousand cannon fooder, six hundred artillery, and er, two divisions of Velour Ninjas.
Donbot: Velour, Clamps.
Clamps: Be a shame if someone was to set fire to them.
Brannigan: Set fire to them? Why, that would be sa-botage.
Clamps: Fires happen, Captain.
Donbot: Things burn.
Brannigan: Look, what is all this about?
Donbot: My associate and I have got a little proposition for you Captain.
Clamps: Could save you a lot of bother.
Donbot: I mean you're doing all right here aren't you, Captain.
Clamps: Well suppose some of your hover tanks was to get broken and Velour skirts started getting lost, er, fights started breaking out during bed inspection, like.
Donbot: It wouldn't be good for business would it, Captain?
Brannigan: Are you threatening me? Sexfully?
Donbot: Oh, no, no, no.
Clamps: Whatever made you think that, Captain?
Donbot: The Captain doesn't think we're nice people, Clamps.
Clamps: We're your buddies, Captain.
Donbot: We want to look after you.
Brannigan: Look after me?
Clamps: We can guarantee you that not a single DOOP warship will get done over for fifteen bucks a week.
Brannigan: No, no, no.
Clamps: Twelve.
Brannigan: No, no, no.
Clamps: Eight ... five bucks...
Brannigan: No, no this is confusing
Donbot: What's confusing?
Brannigan: No, the whole premise is confusing. You’re near all this precious velour and you don’t want to strip naked and roll around on it, so I'm stopping this meeting.
Donbot: You can't do that!
Brannigan: I've done it. The conference is over.
Fry: I want to leave the army please sir, it's dangerous.
Brannigan: Look, I stopped your filthy Neutral propaganda five minutes ago. So get out of here. Right Kif! Close up shop for today and let’s get on with my bath.
Kif sighs

(Interior shot, Pet Shop, Bender behind the counter)
(Farnsworth enters, carrying a parrot cage with a parrot on it's bottom)
Farnsworth: Excuse me, miss.
Bender: What do you mean, 'Miss'?
Farnsworth: Sorry, I, uh... I have a cold. I wish to register a complaint.
Bender: Sorry, we're closing for lunch.
Farnsworth: Never mind that, I wish to complain about this parrot.
Bender: Fine, fine, and why is that?
Farnsworth: I bought this parrot just a half an hour ago from this very boutique.
Bender: So? What's wrong with it?
Farnsworth: What's wrong with it? It's dead, that's what's wrong with it.
Bender: What? No it's not.
Farnsworth: Yes it is.
Bender: No it's not.
Farnsworth: Well, then why did it fall flat on it's back the moment I got it home?
Bender: Uh... It's resting.
Farnsworth: What? On it's back?
Bender: Yes, the Neptunian Blue prefers kipping on it's back.
Farnsworth: What? Look, I know a dead parrot when I see one, and I'm looking at one right now.
Bender: It's resting!
Farnsworth: Fine. If it's resting, I'll wake it up. Wake up, Polly parrot! This is your five O'clock alarm call!
(Bender quickly reaches up and bangs the cage)
Bender: There, it moved!
Farnsworth: No it didn't, that was you banging the cage!
Bender: Me? Never!...
Farnsworth: Yes it was! This an outrage! This parrot is definitely deceased!
Bender: No! It's, uh... Sleeping.
Farnsworth: Listen here, you soup can, this parrot can't sleep, because it's dead!
Bender: No it isn't!
Farnsworth: Yes it is! This parrot is dead, defunct, bereft of life! This parrot is no longer extant or subsisting! It's expired, departed, and gone to meet it's maker! This is an ex-parrot!
Bender: No, you see, look, there, a Neptunian Blue, lovely plumage...
Farnsworth: I don't care about it's plumage, this parrot has bleeding demised! And not half an hour ago you assured me that it's lack of activity was due to it being extremely tired from a long and tediously exhausting squawk!
Bender: That's true!
Farnsworth: I took the liberty of examining that parrot when I got home, and I found that the only reason it was still holding on to it's perch in the first place was due to the fact that it had been nailed there.
Bender: Well, that was to keep it from flying away, see?
Farnsworth: This parrot is dead, it wouldn't move now if you put fourteen gigavolts through it! And I know that for fact. This parrot wouldn't be flying away from anything, even if the thing in question was a mutant atomic superman created for the sole purpose of killing all parrots! This parrot has since forth winged it's way to the land where parrots are eternally blessed!
(He takes the dead parrot out of the cage and starts banging it on the table and yelling at it)
*BANG* *BANG*
Farnsworth: Here, Polly Polly Polly!
*BANG* *BANG*
(He holds it up to his mouth like a microphone)
Farnsworth: Testing, testing!
*BANG* *BANG*
Farnsworth: Polly want a cracker!?!
*BANG* *BANG*
(Farnsworth tosses the obviously dead parrot in the air, and it falls down to the floor)
Farnsworth: Now that's what I call a dead parrot.
(It just lies there)
Bender: Uh, it's, it's... Pining for the fjords! Neptunian Blues pine easily, you know.
Farnsworth: Pining for the fjords!? What kind of talk is that, man?
(He kicks the parrot)
Bender: You see, great bird of the galaxy there, the Neptunian Blue, lovely plumage...
Farnsworth: The plumage doesn't enter into it. It's dead!
(He leans over and picks up the parrot)
Bender: It's pining!
Farnsworth: It's not pining, it's passed on! This parrot is no more! It has ceased to be! It's a stiff! Bereaved by it's family, it rests in peace! If you hadn't nailed it to the perch it be pushing up the daisies and spontaneously combusting! It's metabolic processes are now history! It's off the twig! It's kicked the bucket, shuffled off it's mortal coil, run down the curtain and joined the choir invisible! This is a late parrot!
Bender: All right, all right! I admit it! It's dead! (Starts crying)
(Pause)
Bender: I can't help it. I'm scared, I'm terrified of parrots! Mom said the only way to conquer my fear was to become a pet shop owner.
(Bender sits down)
Bender: Can you understand that? Years and years of college training on the same plastic parrot? It was torture! I can only stand dead parrots, no living or plastic! And I never did want to hurt them, either. I never did, you understand?
(Farnsworth nods sadly)
Farnsworth(Reaching into his lab coat): Incidentally, there's also this dead turtle you sold me...
Bender: Ok, that one was an accident, I swear!
(He sighs)
Bender: I never wanted to do this in the first place. I-, I wanted to be... A Bender!
(Piano vamp)
(Bender jumps up)
Bender: A Bender! Twisting from bar to bar as I rob from the mighty secret military installations of the District of Columbia! The Rod! The Girder! The Ingot! The Sequoia! The MomCorp Un-Benda-Beam! With my best girlie by my side! We'd sing! Sing! Sing! Sing!
(Start musical sequence)

Bender(Singing): Oh, I'm a Bender, and I'm alright, I sleep all day and I loot all night.

CHORUS:
He's a Bender, and he's alright,
he sleeps all day and he loots all night.

Bender(Singing): I twist back bars, I loot and rob, from places like laboratories. On Wednesdays I go shoppin', and have silicones for tea!

CHORUS:
He twists back bars, he loot's and robs,
from places like laboratories.
On Wednesdays he goes shoppin',
and has silicones for tea.
He's a Bender, and he's alright,
he sleeps all day and he loots all night.

Bender(Singing): I twist back bars, I jump and skip, I like to bend unbendable rods. I stole twelve pounds of gems from the White House, and know their brand of sod!

CHORUS:
He twists back bars, he jumps and skips,
he likes to bend unbendable rods.
He stole twelve pounds of gems from the White House,
and knows their brand of sod!
He's a Bender, and he's alright,
he sleeps all day and he loots all night.

Bender(Singing): I twist quite a lot, stop I do not, and quit? I'd say never. But when it come to selling dead parrots, my answer's not going to be 'Whatever'!

CHORUS:
He twists quite a lot, stop he does not,
and quit? He says never.
But when it comes to selling dead parrots,
his answer's not going to be 'Whatever'! (Anymore)
He's a Bender, and he's alright,
he sleeps all day and he loots all night!

Farnsworth(Shaking his head): God help you should you ever become a Bishop...

...Fry, Leela, Bender, Amy and Kif drinking together. Zapp Brannigan is stretched out on the floor beside an empty bottle of champagin.  Suddenly the our conscious heroes rise, face the audience and raise their glasses as they start to sing:

Oh, Tom Corbett was a Sloshed Cadet
Who was very rarely sober,
Buck Rogers knew where to find good brew
At the Beer Fests in October;
Flash Gordon’s daft for a good dark draft
He's been smashed for half a year;
Han Solo’s hot, but a worthless sot
Who would sell his soul for beer!

I cannot think of any drink
John Crighton  hasn’t sniffed...
James T. Kirk himself was permanently squiffed...

Jean-Luc Picard drinks a cubic yard
Of Earl Grey spiked with cider hard!
The good Janeway can put it away
A quart of Frangelica every day!
Oh, Sisko, Sisko on leave in 'Frisco
Drained an entire bar!
And Archer thunk he was deep when drunk,
“I drink, therefore I are!”

Yes, James T. Kirk himself is not particularly swift;
A fairly decent Captain, but a doofus when he’s squiffed!

We interrupt this thread for an emergency double-post.

Actually, I did want to explain why I ignored your "Bishop" prompt and posted another filk instead of riffing from there...see, your filk inspired me to filk "The Philosopher's Song," which I've kinda been wanting to do for years anyway, and when I was done I was so proud of it I couldn't wait for a better point in the thread to post it, so I just went ahead and did it.

Yes, I occasionally get intoxicated on my own cleverness...sorry. <sheepish grin>

Sal comes across with a truck, plowing the text "Xanfor would like to apologize for the constant repetitions in this thread," to the side.  (Note:  This bit is a filler cartoon)  Sal drives toward the TV screen, and a crack is made.

"Woahs, Gezes.  I's gots to moves this load to's the dumps."

After a few bangs on the glass, the truck comes out in Hattie's (the old landlady)apartment.  She presses a button on a remote she suddenly whips out, blowing up the small car and repairing the TV screen.

A ring comes at the door.  She opens it to find a travelling salesman, Horrible Gelatonous Blob.

"Ma'm, I couldn't help but notice the poor resolution on your televsion set."

"Of course it's poor, my cat scratched out the insides."

"Well, what if I told you I have a way to give you a better resolution without paying for a new TV?"

"How much is it?"

"About 1/2 the price of a new TV..."

"Which is..."

"Which is..quite a bargain for you and your sweet smelling kitty."

"I already hate my set; it's pointy on the edges and covers my wall."

*Shifts to outside where a line of salesmen at Hattie's door, waiting to sell her things*

*Cut to scene down the street*

Fry and Leela walk into a dingy restaurant.  Fry is wearing a brown suit and tie, while Leela is clad in a purple sequined dress that matches her hair.  Behind the counter, the Unshaven Rude Guy is applying liberal amounts of oil to a sizzling griddle.

FRY: I had my heart set on taking you to the Palm d'Orbit, but you know it'd cost me a month's salary just to tip the valet.

LEELA: That's okay, Fry.  It's the thought that counts.

FRY (sitting down at a table): I think you'll like this place.  It has a nice, homey atmosphere.

RUDE GUY: What'd ya calls me?

FRY: Who are you?

RUDE GUY (walking up to Fry and Leela): I runs this place.  What'll ya haves?

LEELA: What's on the menu?

RUDE GUY: I'll tells ya what's on the menu.  We gots spam, baked beans and spam, scrambled eggs and spam, spam and wild rice, garlic potatoes and spam, spam lo mein and spam, spam a la mode...

LEELA: Wait just a minute.  Do you have anything without spam?

RUDE GUY: We gots nachos with spam.  No, that's got spam in it.

LEELA: I don't like spam.

FRY (horrified): You don't like spam?  Oh, my God!  Why did I invite you to the Chez Spam?

BENDER, FARNSWORTH, HERMES, and ZOIDBERG (singing): Spam, spam, spam, spam, wonderful spam...
