Lazy Weekend – Rule Britannia ?
Posted June 25, 2016on:
Good Saturday and weekend Widdershins!
Well this week certainly ended with a bang and not a whimper did it not? The British electorate (mainly in England) pulled a fast one on the pundits and voted adieu to the European Union. Not everyone was in agreement with that decision. The Scots were plainly not, which lead to the rather clueless image of Donald Trump speaking at his new Scottish golf course and praising the decision by the voters. And then he went into salesman mode pitching the virtues of his golf course. Meanwhile, the £ sank, stock markets tumbled, and the Prime Minister announced his resignation. Pretty good for a Friday when all you normally get is the Friday News Dump.
However, in keeping with our lazy weekend/no strain the brain tradition, let’s look at the lighter side of all things British and in particular some comedic clips. I’m thinking particularly of Monty Python. They were, at least to me, funny, irreverent and a bit out there for the time that the Pythons were together. The movies and the teevee show were certain to provide a laugh at one thing or another.
With that in mind I’ve selected a few Python clips below. Feel free to add your own, clips of Benny Hill, or any other British comedic items.
(1) Monty Python & The Holy Grail ~ Insulting Frenchman
You just know something like this is gonna happen between the French and English now.
(2) Holy Grail ~ The Black Knight
(3) The Life of Brian ~ Stoning Scene
(4) The Spam Sketch
(5) Upper Class Twit of the Year
(6) Ministry of Silly Walks Sketch
(7) The Lumberjack Song (there are several versions of this)
Okay Widdershins those are my selections of Monty Python’s typically British comedy from both the teevee show and a couple of their movies. I’m looking forward to your selections below.
