And now for something completly different!

I love Monty Python. I´ve seen the whole series of the Flying Circus. Luckily the German TV station NDR3 didn`t try to translate it into German. They only added subtitles. SAT1 once had the Flying Circus also in it`s programm, but they dared to translate it into German. What a waste!

Also from John Cleese was the series Fawlty Towers. Good, that was funny. I loved the scene, when John Clesse asked the Spanish waiter:

Basil: Where is Sybil?

Manuel: The Bill?

Basil: Sybil!

Manuel: The Bill?

Basil: SYBIL

They also made a lot of fun about us Germans, but that didn`t bother me at all.

John Cleese is still a famous character and seen here and there in comercials and movies. Eric Idle is also seen from time to time, as well as Michael Palin, who also did a lot of documentations for the BBC. I haven`t seen a lot from Terry Jones and the reason, why you don`t see anymore of Graham Chapman is, because he has ceased to be, bereft of life, he rests in peace, he has kicked the bucket, hopped the twig, bit the dust, snuffed it, breathed his last, and gone to meet the Great Head of Light Entertainment in the sky. Or better said, he is just dead. It is said, that Graham Chapman asked John Cleese, to use the word "Fuck" in his funeral speech, since John Cleese was the first one, who used the word "Shit" on British television. Terry Gilliam is a very busy film director and I guess, you`ve seen more from him as you can imagine.

So, if you wonder, why your E-Mail account is stacked with spam, maybe the reason for the word spam has it`s origin from one of the scetches of the Monty Pythons.  http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spam-Sketch
