This is one of my favorite Monty Python sketches. I always think about it whenever I sit down to write.

And now for something completely different!
I grew up watching these guys! One of my favorite shows of all time (and let’s not forget about Doug and Dinsdale Piranha: “Doug was born in February 1929 and Dinsdale two weeks later; and again a week after that.”)!
Thanks, Marc–great way to start the day–competitive writing AND a smile!

Always good to hear from you, Charles! Glad you enjoyed the sketch.

Oh, you started my morning off good! I think you may have saved me from a black hole. 🙂

This cracks me up everytime I hear it. Then again, Monty Python always puts me in hysterics. I highly recommend the “RAF Banter” skit if you’ve never seen it before . . .

Thanks for the like on my recent post. It was quite a struggle getting it out, and your support is always appreciated. I love the sketches posted here too. I could use some humor in my life these days.
My favorite though is the “argument sketch.”
Thanks for stopping by…..John H.

Oh, yes, as a kid, this was one of my most favirote skits (along with the Piranah brothers and The Inquisition)!

Thanks for the video! The argument sketch is easily one of my favorites, too. So much great stuff from Monty Python. And on the topic of your recent blog post, I sympathize with your point about chaos. One of the challenges of being a writer, I’ve always found, is to divine a sense of order from the chaos of life — to find a single thread amidst the crush of a life’s details and untangle it, and then to reshape that thread into something new that readers will enjoy.

Love it! I don’t think writer’s will ever get the kind of attention Derby horses and athletes are given. LOL. But what a thing imagine. 🙂
