Living In A Monty Python Sketch

It was 1979. . . 40 years ago that Monty Python’s Flying Circus released the movie, The Life of Brian.

One of the skits deals with what is now a current event.   A two-year-old comment on the page by “Truthfinder” states,

“now the joke is on us we are living in a Monty Python sketch”

Let that sink in for a minute or two after you watch this short skit and acknowledge that the Python Boys predicted what 2019 would be like.  It is both intriguing and distressing at the same time. Unfortunately, truth finder was correct.

    40 years ago! The Brits are as contemplative as they are humorously/brilliant. A few years ago, I marveled at how 20-something men (Beatles) would compose about the Eleanor Rigbys and Fr. McKenzies and 64-year-olds and those in “a day in the life,” etc . This skit, too, is so far beyond its time!

    I can’t be completely sure of the years, but I watched Monty Python’s Flying Circus in the very early ’70s on our local PBS station. My husband worked nights and I had two little ones. I couldn’t sleep and developed quite a schedule of watching those crazy antics and have a true appreciation for what they meant to me at that time. I still watch them on Netflix from time to time, and being 50 years older than when I first enjoyed, perhaps don’t always think they’re as funny, but I do continue to think they’re spectacular. 🙂
