So here's my lack of knowledge for the night:

We are currently watching Monty Python's Live at the Hollywood Bowl. We saw the first song (I would type the title, but for the innocents...). And I remarked 'Hey, I didn't know John Cleese was in the Pythons. I mean, he wasn't in the Holy Grail, or the Life of Brian' [my two favourite and oft watched MP films]. At which point Tony turned and stared at me incredulously.

Oops. Seems I'm not good at actor identification.

(Though, while typing this and not looking at the tv screen, I do recognise all the voices).

I'm much more familiar with Holy Grail than Life of Brian. Cleese did a great job as Lancelot in Holy Grail!

(I proudly work for an organization which has a name inspired by Monty Python.) [Smile]

Ok, now I'm feeling even more dumb. I saw Holy Grail a fortnight ago. I giggled through "Careful Sire, that rabbit's dynamite" without even recognising Cleese.

If ever there was a time for this smilie [Wall Bash] this is it!

Imogen , you shouldn't do that. It hurts. It's not the end of the world. We the people of the Hatrack nation still love you.

And here I clicked on this thread wondering what an Aussie was going to know about one of my local landmarks . . . [Wink]

And as it turns out, not much. Except Monty Python (including John Cleese [Smile] ) were there.

Rivka, I sent you an email - to the address in your profile.

Well, at the moment, I'm thinking it's VERY wet. [Wink]

The one in my profile works just fine -- it's a forwarder.

*checks* EEP! It thinks you're spam!

I get that a lot. Guess I just share an affinity with spiced ham.

This is interesting.

They're holding auditions for anyone who thinks they have the Python act down.

John Cleese was also the frenchman in the Holy Grail! We musn't forget that!
