Happy 43rd anniversary, Monty Python! [View all]



Are you a lumberjack? Because you're OK. Is this the right room for an argument? Because that parrot is definitely deceased. Nudge nudge, know what I mean, know what I mean?

Yes, "Monty Python's Flying Circus" turns 43 years old today. The show premiered Oct. 5, 1969, on Britain's BBC One. Americans, though, quickly jumped on the Brit-wit bandwagon, making the show and the Pythons' movies quotable cult classics.

Their skits were viral videos before there most of us had ever heard of the Internet. Depending on your school, you had a fairly good chance of walking into the band room or another place where Python-esque people hang out, throwing out "What is the air-speed velocity of an unladen swallow?" and having someone shout back, "What do you mean? An African or European swallow?" You have to know these things when you're a king, you know.

So if you're a fan, serve yourself some Spam, do a silly walk or two, and share this post with a friend. Because no one expects the Spanish Inquisition.
