    I bought the full collection of DVDs and show some snippets to my classes every now and then. The 'Spanish Inquisition' and 'Minister of Silly Walks' crack me up every time!

        Consistent with my preference for print media, I own the complete scripts in book form. Obviously, though, I wouldn't have bought the books if I hadn't seen the stuff originally on tv. (I find the books easier to use for reference when I want to quote an exact line or scene.)

              It's spelled Raymond Luxury Yacht, but it's pronounced "Throat Warbler Mangrove."

                This past Monday was the 40th anniversary of the first airing of the Dead Parrot sketch. NPR had a story on the Python phenomenon. In Canada, British sketch comedy was/is quite mainstream. It didn't translate as well to the US audiences, I think.

                Confession: I once memorized the world's funniest joke (translated in German, of course).

                        the Argumentation bit is easily my favorite bit of Pythonia; nothing else is remotely close for me.

                            Apparently you haven't spent enough time around America's nerdy teenage boys. We liked it just fine, thank you, and the present generation still does.

                            When I was 14, Dr. Graham Chapman had a lecture tour stop at the University of Toledo. His first statement was "For the next 60 seconds I'd like you to verbally abuse me. Come on, be as nasty as you like!" And after the minute was up, he said "Thank you. That will save a lot of time later." His stuff included films of the Dangerous Sports Club, the people who invented bungee jumping and surrealist skiing.
