Today marks the 40th anniversary of the debut of Monty Python's Flying Circus on the BBC. I always loved the zaniness of the five Brits and one American. Here are some of my favorite Python sketches:
The Dead Parrot Sketch:
The Ministry of Silly Walks:
The Argument Clinic:
The Dirty Hungarian Phrasebook:
I haven't been able to find it online yet, but the Pythons even did an entire skit based on train schedules....and it was funny!
Here's a random internet list of 20 great Python sketches.
So, go ahead and celebrate today with some spam or some raspberry tart without so much rat in it.
