    Hopefully we can still talk about the Monty Python actor and his work despite his last name.
    I kind of enjoyed Blackmail.

    I think of a parrot pining for the fields.

    Not fields. Fjords.

    My 11-year-old son's favorite is most definitely the Bicycle Tour. I'm a big fan of the Spanish Inquisition myself, because no one would expect that. [/nerd laugh]

    Thanks for the fix Arnie. I was figuring out a way to slap Slappy through the screen for this uncalled for mistake.

    The guy who goes into the travel agency looking for a holiday to India. It's on Monty Python's Previous Record.

    On another note, Around The World in 80 Days and Pole To Pole were great.

    One thing that I think gets overlooked with Palin is Ripping Yarns.

    There is some incredibly funny stuff in there, some of which you can find on youtube.

    Palin's published a massive (600-pages-plus) collection of his diaries of the years where Python was just taking off into superstardom, and beyond. It goes into Ripping Yarns, too.

    A little too exhaustive, but I enjoyed them.

    I need it... but tread lightly please. I'm tired and I didn't expect a Spanish Inquisition.

    NO ONE EXPECTS THE SPANISH INQUISITION!
