A Letterman-Python Confluence

Jeff Horwich riffs on the recent Letterman “scandal” with a brilliant, Pythonesque ditty.

Speaking of Monty Python, here’s a supremely scary thought: it’s the 40th anniversary of that program. Yikes! Make you seem ancient, or what? So feel free to share your favourite Python sketch in the comments (embed the video if you can). One of my faves is a somewhat obscure one called “Mr. Neutron” (“the most dangerous man in the universe”)…

Skip the last half of it which drags on a bit and just gets altogether too silly, but the opening sequence is wonderfully absurd and Chapman’s deadpan acting is absolutely hilarious.

    Sunday was the 20th anniversary of Chapman’s death, too.

  2. Gordon — Thanks for the reminder. Great video. What a terrific memorial. Tasteless, impolite and deliberately offensive.

    You’ve just described about 90% of all Monty Python skits.

    John Cleese’s website, blog, etc, and note he also on twitter. And his podcasts are hysterical.

    Always loved this one-Ministry of silly walks
