Now I know how my mother's felt for decades, watching all the entertainers of your youth slip away one by one....

My first mental image of him is buck naked at the organ.....

RIP, Terry.

Sad news, indeed - I first think of any number of female characters he played... 'Bloody Vikings...'
Sail on, Terry, and Thanks for all the laughs...

He will be missed and yes it seems those of us now entering middle age seem to be losing more and more of our legends. Yet somehow Keith Richards just keeps on going as well as many of this other rock stars...

Monty Python was a huge part of my growing up and my friends and I would quote Python all the time especially when down at the pub.

His passing made me sad. A wonderful talent and engaging person. His brand of anarchic humor is needed more than ever. RIP.

rather
Rather refreshing that the bunch of bright lads decided to poke fun at, well, nearly everything, rather than making a bundle on the markets or going into the defense industry. I particularly liked it when they addressed the class system. "Upper Class Twit of the Year" always has me in stitches.

"It's the cleanest cheese shop in the area."
"Well, it is certainly uncontaminated by cheese".

I feel sorry for anyone who hasn't been acquainted with Monty Python. Recently introduced my granddaughter to it. Sadly, some of it needs cultural context to be funny. Although she, being a dance fanatic, thought the "Ministry of Silly Walks" hilarious. Sadly, I suspect a number of her duller classmates would respond with "Whaat?".

"He's gone to meet his maker, he is no more. He is an ex-Python." RIP.

when I was in school, I lived in a crappy little apt in Chicago(all I could afford). One of my best friends, also in school, lived above me. We studied a lot. But, every Sunday night we stopped studying to watch, The Prisoner, Benny Hill, and of course Monty Python. It was a great release and all of those shows were so addictive and the Monty Python players were clearly unique. Their take on humor was so unique, all of them so talented. They went on to make movies, and even a play. I so appreciate all of your posts with many of their great lines.

RIP Terry Jones you cannot be replaced and will be missed

You do have some cheese, do you?
Certainly, sir. This is a cheese shop, sir. We've got...
No, no, no, don't tell me. I'm keen to guess.
Fair enough.
Wensleydale?
Yes,sir?
Splendid. Well, I'll have some of that, then, pleaseease.
Oh, I'm sorry sir. I thought you were referring to me. Mr Wensleydale.
Gorgonzola?
No.
Parmesan?
No.
Mozzarella?
No.
Pippo Creme?
No.
Any Danish Fimboe?
No.
Czechoslovakian Sheep's Milk Cheese?
No.
Venezuelan Beaver Cheese?
Not today, sir.
Well, let's keep it simple, how about Cheddar?
Well I'm afraid we don't get much call for it around these parts.
No call for it? It's the single most popular cheese in the world!
Not round these parts, sir.
And pray what is the most popular cheese round these parts?
Ilchester, sir.
I see.
Yes, sir. It's quite staggeringly popular in the manor, squire.
Is it?
Yes sir, it's our number one seller.
Is it?
Yes, sir.
Ilchester eh?
Right.
OK, I'm game. Have you got any, expecting the answer no?
I'll have to look sir.......nnnnnnooooo.
It's not much of a cheese shop really, is it?
Finest in the district, sir.
And what leads you to that conclusion?
Well, it's so clean.
Well, it's certainly uncontaminated by cheese.
You haven't asked me about Limberger, sir.
Is it worth it?
Could be.
Have you got any Limberger?
No.
