The fact of the matter is that Monty Python movies suck. In fact, it is a truth that only about 12 percent of the things Monty Python ever did were actually very funny, and that approximately 38 percent of what they did was actually just downright annoying, and that if someone insists to you that everything Monty Python ever did was funny, you should hand him two Zyprexa and have him call you in the morning.
See, Jessica and I are excellent exchangers of pop culture. She has excellent taste in music and turns me on to some good things. I’m a bit older than she and so I feel obligated to share my obvious and overflowing wisdom with her. So when she said she’d wanted to watch some Monty Python films, I was more than happy to line up the NQ. We’ve watched “The Meaning of Life” and “Life of Brian.” Oy.
I was watching a “Flying Circus” last night, the one with the Upper Class Twits thing. It was all right, I guess, nothing funnier than the fellow what ran himself over with his own car. It’s just not the brilliant genius funny to me that I think it’s cracked up to be. “Yeah, but you listen to Howard Stern, and you think the funniest movie of all time is ‘Jackass: The Movie.’ What do you know?”
I know “Pearls Before Swine” is friggin’ hillarious. Did you see it today? Damn.
