    Monty Python fans?

    I am not really sure where to put this but, while reading everyone's sigs, I notice quite a few Monty Python quotes. I don't use one in mine but I do get a chuckle seeing all of them. How many Python fans are there here?

    Monty-who?

    This is from my favourite Monty Python's Flying Circus skit:

    Pither: How do you know so much about cycling?
    Gulliver: Well, I'm making a special study of accidents involving food.
    Pither: Really?
    Gulliver: Yes, do you know that in our laboratories, we have developed a cheese sandwich that can withstand an impact of 4,000 pounds per square inch?
    Pither: Good heavens!
    Gulliver: Amazing, isn't it? We have also developed a tomato which can eject itself when an accident is imminent.
    Pither: Even if it's inside an egg and tomato roll?
    Gulliver: Anywhere! Even if it's in your stomach, and it senses an accident it will come up your throat and out of the window. Do you realise what this means?
    Pither: Safer food?
    Gulliver: Exactly! No longer will food be squashed, crushed and damaged, by the ignorance and stupidity of the driver! Whole picnics will be built to withstand the most enormous forces! Snacks will be safer than ever! An simple pot of salad dressing, treated in our laboratories, has been subjected to the impact of a 4,000 pound steam hammer every day for the last sixteen years and has it broken?
    Pither: Er....well...
    Gulliver: Yes, of course it has...but there are other ideas - the safety straps for sardines for instance.
    Pither: Here, that tomato just ejected itself.

    I think I've seen the Quest for the Holy Grail about 100 times or so. It's too funny!

    My favorite film skit is the soccer match between the German and the Greek Philosophers.

    and my favorite Python song is Bruce's Pilosophers:

    Immanuel Kant was a real pissant
    Who was very rarely stable,
    Heidegger, Heidegger was a boozy begger
    Who could think you under the table,
    David Hume could out-consume,
    Wilhelm Freidrich Hegel.
    And Wittgenstein was a beery swine
    Who was just as schloshed as Schlegel.
    There's nothing Nietzche 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 stick it away,
    Half a crate of whiskey everyday.
    Aristotle, Aristotle was a bugger for the bottle,
    Hobbes was fond of his dram,
    And René DesCartes was a drunken fart
    "I drink, therefore I am."
    Yes, Socrates himself is particularly missed,
    A lovely little thinker but a bugger when he's pissed!

    In a bad french accent "I fart in your general direction!"

    Holy Grail is a great movie. My wife is hispanic and extremely catholic and didn't appreciate the "Life of Brian" at all. I got in trouble for that one.
    No matter where you go, there you are.

    I'm sure there's a joke in there somewhere...

    No there isn't.

    Yes there is!

    I agree, Search for the Holy Grail has to be one of the best movies ever...it provides an endless supply of quotes for every situation. The Constitution Peasants scene is brilliant!

    No it isn't

    Yes it is!

    You guys do realize that Python's on Broadway, right?
    The Holy Grail is now a silly musical called Spamalot
    Hank Azaria (voice of Moe the bartender, etc. on Simpsons) is the star.

    Yes, I heard about it a couple of months ago. I'm still not sure what to make of it.

    I came here for an argument! That's just contradiction.

    edit:
    Found this link, based on the Argument sketch, where you can have an interactive virtual argument with Socrates. http://www.mindspring.com/~mfpatton/sclinic.htm

    I'll look and see I can find somewhere on the web where you can participate in an interactive virtual Spanish Inquisition.
