As any loyal Python fan knows, they had an ability to take the most absurd premise and run with it until you couldn’t help but laugh. The Dead Parrot. The Cheeseshop. The Ministry of Silly Walks. Another favorite of mine was the The Worlds Deadliest Joke. In the sketch, two warring armies are seperated by only a few yards, and hunkered down in foxholes. A “joke bomb” falls into the hands of one side, and they shout it out over a bullhorn. Once anyone hears the punchline, they laugh themselves to death. It was silly, sure, but it was funny.
If they were still together, imagine what they could do this piece of news.
I don’t know whether to laugh or cry that this was considered in 1994.
In local news (meaning it happened on my farm) the sub-floor is finished for the chicken coop. Today I set the walls and hopefully have rafters in by end of the weekend. If you have a hammer and some time…come on down.
If any of you remember that we had a foal last year we had to bottle feed all summer, he is now a yearling, weighs in at around 600 lbs, and had a halter on yesterday. In the evening, I had him on a rope. Ok, he had ME on the rope. Wish me luck with this, as I cannot find a reliable horse trainer…
