YouTube Tuesday: Shut your festering gob, you tit!

Today's edition of YouTube Tuesday comes to you in honor of the original first-air date of Monty Python's Flying Circus on BBC television on October 5, 1969.

Yes, 41 years ago today national audiences (in Great Britain) were introduced to the genius of a comedy troupe that predicted nearly half a century in advance what the state of political discourse would be like in the United States.

  1. Thanks for that post.

    We'd get together every Sat. evening for this one, fast 30 minutes. Outstanding stuff. Coincidentally, this was one of my favorite skits. Later in the evening, when SNL came on, it seemed sad because the pace was so slow and the writing weak.

    Who knew it debuted 41 years ago? Wow.
