It’s time for Friday Frolic, our weekly visit to Youtube, to see what wonders we can find to kick the weekend off right….let’s see….yup!
This week, I offer you…
MONTY PYTHON‘S FLYING CIRCUS!
My lifelong friend, Eden Mabee, introduced me to Monty Python in our mid teen years, when I received a television of my own for my shared bedroom. Before that, it was one of those shows my parents required me to turn off before the opening credits had ended. I’d always been fascinated by the Terry Gilliam animations, and the intriguing quote that followed:
“Monty Python’s Flying Circus has been found to be an effective tool in the offending of the easily offended, so if you’re one of them, do us both a favor and DON’T WATCH!! Thank you and God bless.”
The advice still holds true today. I’ll give you a preview, first, and then, if you’re not offended, and especially if you are chortling and guffawing, you might want to continue….on to something wonderfully, zanily, wittily, Britishly, and, yes, completely different.
The “It’s” Man and Intros
Now, assuming you’re not offended…let the Friday Frolic fun begin!
Dead Parrot/ Lumberjack Song
How To Defend Yourself Against Fresh Fruit
The SPAM Song
The Spanish Inquisition
And a truly unexpected – but maybe not completely different – bonus, from Margaret Thatcher
Want more Python? Other British humor? Er, ummm….Something completely different?
