Because I Can

The Missus, who has long resisted assimilation into the Python World Order, recently suggested that she might not mind it if I showed her some individual sketches, just by way of introduction. Well, this is one of my favorites. (Indeed, the entire "Michael Ellis" episode is one of the best the Team ever did, and conclusive proof that they really didn't need Cleese around to be funny.) The gratuitous savaging of Mr. John "Koot" has always held a special place in my family's collective funny-bone.

Tea and pramwiches, anybody?

UPDATE: Not to take away from Cleese, of course. Here's another great favorite:

"Get out the piano ye stupid furry buck-toothed gits!"
