People don’t do it like they used to, but in the fairly recent past, they used to quote Monty Python. I’m not sure how much their humour stands up today. You either find it funny, or so weird as to be not amusing at all. I have always been in between somehow, liking some of their skits and not getting the majority of them. I did buy the Complete Python on dvd at Costco during the holidays and will make my way through them over time (by myself; Patricia would rather link the toilets at Scotia Square than watch Monty Python).
One of their most famous sketches is called The Four Yorkshiremen, in which 4 men from, um, Yorkshire, discuss how badly they had it as children. “Luxury!” entered the lexicon as a result of this sketch.
It occurs to me that most of you haven’t seen the skit all the way through, so here it is.
But, wait. There’s more. How much will you pay now?
I found the original version of the sketch, with Mary Feldman filling in for one of the Pythons. And, a more recent version, from the early 1980’s.
In both cases, you probably should take this to full screen, or you might think it' was just The Three Yorkshiremen.
Yeah, you’re welcome. You know I love you, don’t you?
