    I can't believe you don't have one here! :eek: [face_shame_on_you] ;)

    So I decided to start one! :D

    I only got hooked on Monty Pythons quite recently, and only saw a couple of their movies (The Quest for the Holy Grail, The Life of Brian, And Now for Something Completely Different, and The Meaning of Life). I have yet to see the Flying Circus (although I have all their stuff downloaded on my computer ;)).

    Anyway, this thread is open to all Monty Python fans - feel free to discuss anything about Monty Pythons! :)

    I have mixed opinions when it comes to Monty Python. I've seen only two (alas): Holy Grail, and Meaning of Life. I thought Holy Grail was absolutely incredible, and I loved it. However...Meaning of Life scared the crap out of me. I also found it to be a tad dull at parts.

    Yes, well, the Meaning of Life DID have a very specific humour. But I really enjoyed it. Maybe because I already have a weird sense of humour... :p

    But my favourites are the Holy Grail ("Nih!") and the Life of Brian.

    Crowd: "He's the Messiah!"
    Brian: "But I'm not the Messiah!!!"
    Woman: "Only the true Messiah denies his divinity!"
    Crowd: "Yeah!"
    Brian: "All right, I am the Messiah..."
    Crowd: "HE IS!!!"

    *Kills thread*


    Mr. Praline: I wish to complain about this thread what I posted not half an hour ago from this very board.

    Owner:
    Oh yes, the, uh, the JCC Topic...What's,uh...What's wrong with it?

    Mr. Praline:
    I'll tell you what's wrong with it, my lad. It's dead, that's what's wrong with it!

    Owner: No, no, it's uh,...it's resting.

    Mr. Praline: Look, matey, I know a dead topic when I see one, and I'm looking at one right now.

    Owner:
    No no it's not dead, it's, it's restin'! Remarkable forum, the JCC, idn'it, ay? Beautiful color scheme!

    Mr. Praline: The color scheme don't enter into it. It's stone dead.

    Owner: Nononono, no, no! It's resting!

    Mr. Praline:
    All right then, if it's restin', I'll wake him up! 'Ello, Mister JCC Thread! I've got a lovely fresh +1 for you if you show...

    Owner: There, it got upped!

    Mr. Praline: No, it didn't, that was you hitting the post button!

    Owner: I never!!

    Mr. Praline: Yes, you did!

    Owner: I never, never did anything...

    Mr. Praline: 'ELLO THREADY!!!!! Testing! Testing! Testing! Testing! This is your nine o'clock alarm call!

    Mr. Praline: Now that's what I call a dead topic.

    Owner: No, no.....No, It's stunned!

    Mr. Praline: STUNNED?!?

    Owner: Yeah! You stunned it, just as it was wakin' up! JCC Threads stun easily, major.

    Mr. Praline: Um...now look...now look, mate, I've definitely had enough of this. That thread is definitely deceased, and when I posted it not half an hour ago, you assured me that its total lack of replies was due to it bein' tired and shagged out following a prolonged edit.

    Owner: Well, it's...it's, ah...probably pining for the Amphitheatre.

    Mr. Praline: PININ' for the AMPHITHEATRE?!?!?!? What kind of talk is that?, look, why did it fall flat on his back the moment I posted in it?

    Owner: The JCC Thread prefers keepin' on it's back! Remarkable forum, id'nit, squire? Lovely banner!

    Mr. Praline: Look, I took the liberty of examining that thread when I got it home, and I discovered the only reason that it had been sitting on Page 1 in the first place was that it had been STICKIED there.

    Owner: Well, o'course it was STICKIED there! If I hadn't stickied that bird down, it would have nuzzled up to the coding, hacked it apart with its skillz, and VOOM! Feeweeweewee!

    Mr. Praline: "VOOM"?!? Mate, this thread wouldn't "voom" if you put four million volts through it! It's bleedin' demised!

    Owner: No no! It's pining!

    Mr. Praline: It's not pinin'! It's passed on! This topic is no more! It has ceased to be! It's expired and gone to meet it's maker! It's a stiff! Bereft of life, it rests in peace! If you hadn't stickied it to Page 1 it'd be pushing up the daisies! It's metabolic processes are now history! It's off the twig! It's kicked the bucket, it's shuffled off it's mortal coil, run down the curtain and joined the bleedin' choir invisibile!! THIS IS AN EX-TOPIC!!

    Owner: Well, I'd better replace it, then. Sorry squire, I've had a look 'round the back of the shop, and uh, we're right out of threads.

    Mr. Praline: I see. I see, I get the picture.

    Owner: I got a link.

    Mr. Praline: Pray, can I post in it?

    Owner: Nnnnot really.

    Mr. Praline: WELL IT'S HARDLY A BLOODY REPLACEMENT, IS IT?!!???!!?

    Owner: N-no, I guess not.

    Mr. Praline: Well.

    Owner: D'you.... d'you want to come back to Fan Fiction?

    Mr. Praline: Yeah, all right, sure.

    :cool:

    And now for something completely obvious:

    ARTHUR: Now stand aside, worthy adversary.
    BLACK KNIGHT: 'Tis but a scratch.
    ARTHUR: A scratch? Your arm's off!
    BLACK KNIGHT: No, it isn't.
    ARTHUR: Well, what's that, then?
    BLACK KNIGHT: I've had worse.
    ARTHUR: You liar!
    BLACK KNIGHT: Come on, you pansy!

    I'll wager that was about as expected as.....the Spanish Inquisition!

    BRIAN:
    Bloody Romans.

    MANDY:
    Now, look, Brian. If it wasn't for them, we wouldn't have all this, and don't you forget it.

    BRIAN:
    We don't owe the Romans anything, Mum.

    MANDY:
    Well, that's not entirely true, is it Brian?

    BRIAN:
    What do you mean?

    MANDY:
    Well, you know you were asking me about your, uh...

    BRIAN:
    My nose?

    MANDY:
    Yes. Well, there's a reason it's... like it is, Brian.

    BRIAN:
    What is it?

    MANDY:
    Well, I suppose I should have told you a long time ago, but...

    BRIAN:
    What?

    MANDY:
    Well, Brian,... your father isn't Mr. Cohen.

    BRIAN:
    I never thought he was.

    MANDY:
    Now, none of your cheek! He was a Roman, Brian. He was a centurion in the Roman army.

    BRIAN:
    You mean... you were raped?

    MANDY:
    Well, at first, yes.

    I love 'Life of Brian' more than the other Python stuff. It's a great spoof of Christ movies and it feels as if they actually did some research (the many anti-Roman factions was especially amusing). And I looove the song at the end.

    And of course, there's Pontious Pilate.

    "So, your father was a 'Woman'?"
