Make the Voices Stop, Dave!

I'm working on a project that involves the hiring of management level employees. As I sit here trying to proofread several docs I have to turn in today, I am bedevilled by the voice of Eric Idle yelling, "Manager! Manager!" in the Michael Ellis episode of Monty Python.

Despite the absense of John Cleese, I've always thought this was one of the best Flying Circuseseses ever. The Victorian Poetry Reading bit is a family favorite and we routinely speak of William Wadsworth, Percy Bysshe, Mr. John Coot and Alfred Lord Tennisball. Tea and pramwiches, anybody?

I really think I need to see somebody......[I assure you you do, Mr. Ellis - Ed.]

There absolutely IS something refreshing about the Cleeseless episodes of Monty Python. He was, I think, getting style. His absence freed them all up a bit, it seems to me. Who can forget "The Disgusting Garibaldi Family of Droitwich" for instance. Not me.

...Or the "Woody and Tinny Words" sketch (episode 42). (

Gentlemen, you speak sooth. John - The Light Entertainment Wars episode is probably my favorite of all time. Stephen - I like all that snogging, but don't forget the Fanshaw-Chumleys as well!
