    This is my favorite.


    I feel bad that nerds no longer watch Monty Python, they're timeless.

    There are certainly a lot of Bozos on this bus...

    30yo nerds still watch Monty Python, if my own kids and their friends are any indication.

    Brian: "I am not the Messiah!"

    Crowd following him: "He must be the Messiah! Only the true Messiah would deny he is the Messiah!"

    Gonna get flamed for this—I never really found Monty python that funny. More annoying really-might be the accents.

    One thing I noticed about Monty Python early on (in the US) is it's much funnier in the retelling than the watching.

    I really love the Holy Hand Grenade part. I can get it stuck in my head.

    The Holy Graile, Life of Brian were great. Random thought - I never found the Three Stooges funny at all.

    All I got from the 3 stooges was trouble, when I poked the neighbor kid in the eyes.

    There are only two reasons to have a bottle of Chambord in the house. Its uncanny resemblance to the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch is one of them. The greater of the two, in fact.

    I can only hope that when I die, someone cares enough to deliver a eulogy as perfect as Cleese gave for Graham Chapman. I know I’ll have to live to be a hundred years old to earn that, though.
