40 Years of Silliness

Happy 40th Birthday to Monty Python!

After watching re-runs of Monty Python's Flying Circus on TV all week I've been reminded how very funny they are... I'm particularly enjoying the Colonel who stops sketches for being far too silly!

The Life of Brian is possibly one of the best films ever made and should be shown every Christmas Day on British telly in my humble opinion!

I once went to a Life of Brian themed NYE party - there were women in beards, romans, Peoples Front of Judea - all brilliant characters!

And we've not even mentioned the funny songs! It's more difficult than you can ever imagine to get a funny song right (sorry Mitch Benn) but these guys had so many silly ditties, if you haven't already get on youtube and check out the Monty Python Channel...

ps. If you're into that sort of thing John Cleese regularly Twitters and just yesterday offered a poll in which you could vote for how he might top himself on his 70th birthday...
