And now for something completely different....

I don't know if anybody has seen "The Mouse Problem" sketch from the Monty
Python TV series... episode 2, but it's hilarious. It was done long before
Furry, Fursuits, or Cons ever existed. Way Funnier and far more disturbing than
that E.R. thingy! Ha Ha It's Grand Stuff! Go read the script at
http://www.ibras.dk/montypython/justthewords.htm

Click on the Mouse Problem... Tell me what you think..

I had been meaning to bring that up a while back after seeing it on my DVD
collection (every episode, digitally remastered! Yesss! :) I'm glad you brought it
up 'cause I'd forgotten to. It's a great sketch (aren't they all?!) and worthy of
any furry's attention.

Hopefully someone knows where an MPEG clip of it can be found, hmmm?

Heh. I think that's got to be one of the better sketches from Flying
Circus. Definitely worth a chuckle and a laugh.
Honnestly, I'm surprised no one has ever really put it forward before
now.

Still haven't caught that ep yet, but hope to eventually

Er. How do I say it?

Let's put it this way: how many days have you been here?

A few years on and off. Not religiously, but I keep up.

Well, perhaps it's not as frequent as it seems to me, but you _would_
have a good reason to be surprised were it true. Your on and off must
have been in phase with the cycle of regular rediscovery of the
sketch.

I'll agree to that one. And I can understand the
discovery/rediscovery/red... you know... of the sketch, I guess I should
read up more often.

No luck in finding any MPG's of the Mouse Sketch.... and if someone else would
like to take the challenge of finding them it's okay by me... three search
engines later and my head feels like exploding.

I did find a Furry Monty Python site-- not something I expected ta see. Go look
it's at http://www.lavender.fortunecity.com/python/508

Here is another site that only goes ta show that JAVA can be used
creatively... but you didn't hear it from me--

And you know what? The whole "Mice Men" fandom totally disintegrated after
that expose'. This is a real risk for our hobby as well, oh no!

Yeah that's pretty funny... I haven't seen any of those Mousemen guys hangin
around for years... (sniker) The Cheddar fandom suffered from it, too.

But ya know, the Upper-Class Twit Club is still goin strong...

Can't imagine why everyone takes me so seriously...
