Yes! I love that Terry Gilliam was included in the troupe. Man, his series animations were the bomb!

I have a tin of 'Stinky French Garlic Spam' produced to promote 'Spamalot' the Pythonesque Musical. There, you're all jealous now aren't you. Will swop for Product Enterprise 23inch Eagle Frieghter (Spam prob smells better and can ends are better colour match for engine bells).

Seen a few of the PE Eagles in Model Zone Shops in Newcastle and was tempted at 250. But when I got the shop to let me have a look I was struck by the strong smell of resin off one, the cruddy beak section and the too shiney engine bells. The 19 inch Hawk looks v nice but it seems to be delayed a lot and 500!!! Thanx for welcome

I've loved the pythons since I was a teen, I remember reading the 'Big Red Book'.

Holy Grail has to be my fave film, and one of my favourite sketches is Michael Palin's lenient RSM in 'And now for something completely different':

"Anythin' you'd rather be doin', than marchin'..., hup - and - darn the squear??"

I met Neil Innes a few times when we were both at Yorkshire TV, he was doing 'Puddle Lane' at the time - nice bloke.

Meaning of life! However, talking of 'And now for something completely different'......

Sergeant: Squad! Camp it up.

Oooh get her! Whoops!
I've got your number ducky.
You couldn't afford me, dear. Two three.
I'd scratch your eyes out.

Don't come the brigadier bit with us, dear,
We all know where you've been, you military fairy!

Whoops, don't look now girls,
The major's just minced in
With that dolly colour sergeant,
Two, three, ooh-ho!

Now then ,from memory of a misspent youth (and no googling - so 'scuse the spelling)
...was a real piss-ant who was very rarely stable,
Eidegger, Eidegger was a boozy beggar who could drink you under the table,
Albert Hulme could out-consume Schopenhauer and Hagel,
and Wittgenstein was a beery swine who was just as sloshed as Shlegal.

..once you start you just can't stop..

There's nothing Nietcshe (sp) couldn't teach 'ya 'bout the raising of the wrist...
Socrates himself was permanently pissed,

John Stuart Mill of his own free will,
on half a pint of shandy was particularly ill,
Plato, they say, could stow it away,
Half a crate of whisky every day,
Aristotle, Aristotle was a bugger for the bottle (my fave line)
Hobbs was fond of his dram,
And Rene Descarte was a drunken fart,
'I drink therefore I am'.

Magical stuff....

Apropos of nothing - but Holy Sh1t Dorzac: when I opened this thread I was listening to 'A Tune for Jack' by Lemon Jelly - and your Morph avatar was perfectly in time with the bongo drums in the song.. and I thought the drugs were finally wearing off....
