My ba-rain hurts!
I grew up on Monty Python in the late sixties and early seventies, and besides all the naked breasts I remember from the show, I simply adored their comedy! Loved their deadpan humor, their outright silliness, their surreal animation. I’ve only just yesterday realized that October 5th marked their 40th anniversary of their broadcast on BBC. Having grown up in the Adirondacks of upstate New York, and only able to get the reception of 2 1/2 television channels, I quite fell into Monty Python by accident from a Canadian channel (I think it the half-channel…).
Oh, how I miss This-isn’t-an-argument sketch.
Doug and Dinsdale Piranha brothers.
The Funniest Joke In The World.
And who could forget about Spam!-Spam!-Spam!-Spam!
They were ground breaking, and I didn’t even know it. I loved their stream-of-consciousness approach…about how they merged from one sketch to another in dream-like fashion. The naked girls. The absurdity!
So, happy birthday, Monty Python! I continue to quote your comedy throughout my life!
