Re: Oh Monty Python, I just don't get it.
I'm British, and I find parts of Monty Python very funny indeed - other parts too schoolboy-humorous for my taste. I admit to finding the Parrot Sketch ROFL funny, and also the 'Knights That Say "Ni!" ' scene in MP and the Holy Grail - the punch-line is priceless!
As for the Australian Philosophers' Song, it's one of the funniest things I've ever heard!
Ah well, humour just can't be explained - it either tickles you or it doesn't. I'm always amazed to learn that someone doesn't find Terry Pratchett the funniest and wittiest writer in this or any other universe - but - chacun à son goût, isn't it!
