Star Trek Meets Monty Python

I don't think there's a way to introduce this. The title pretty much says it all. Although I will say, if you're not a Monty Python fan, you won't understand it.

But then again, if you're not a Monty Python fan, you will never truly understand me.

ROF,L! Being both a Star Trek fan and a Monty Python fanatic, I truly appreciate this. It's silly -- and I mean that as a compliment. {g}

Linda,

Yup. Silly is highly under valued in our society.

Long Live Silly, I say!

Sorry; I've never even seen Monty Python. Can I still visit?

Once should arrive from Netflix tomorrow! Thanks again for the tip!

From my girl -- "Tell Pam that's actually so amazing, it blows my mind"...

Half-past, you haven't lived until you've experienced Monty Python.

And let me know what you think.

You'll either get it, or you won't. I will say that Monty Python and the Holy Grail is one of my all time favourites. I saw it in the theatre and I laughed so hard, the guy in front of me turned around to ask if I was okay, because I'd started wheezing.

kc, you tell your girl I loved her before, but now I have decided she merits the title of Honourary Niece.

Love Auntie Pantie

Klasieprof,

I remember being horrified at a lot of this stuff too. It seems so tame now, but at the time...(shudder)

You're probably too young, but LOST IN SPACE freaked me out too. I had nightmares as a kid, yet I watched, week after week. Now, when I look at the robot which instilled so much fear, I can see he has dryer vents for arms.

it brought together my two favourite things...old star trek (because i got to see them when they were originally broadcast and the new stuff just didn't compare) and monty python. that is so awesome!

i'm also going to steal it and post it on my blog :)

A Novel Woman said...

Steal away, dykewife! The more Python and Star Trek in the world, the better.

Will ROBINSON WILL ROBINSON DANGER DANGER DANGER.
Oh heck no...I remember that. And that creepy limp wristed uncle he had.

A Novel Woman said...

Ah, creepy uncle was Dr. Smith, methinks. And that show gave me nightmares, which cracks up my kids when they see the re-runs.

YAY! Love Monty Python, and that edit is scarily spot on for Star Trek, isn't it? My kids are falling for Monty Python too, it's nice to pass it on to a new generation, although they love Life of Brian best - I always preferred The Meaning of Life.

"it's only a model"
"Shhhh!"

A Novel Woman said...

Alyson,

When you're chewing on life's gristle, don't grumble, give a whistle, and this'll help things turn out for the best....and

Always look on the bright side of life...whee hoo, whee hoo,deedoo, deedooo.

This was wonderful, I laughed and *laughed.* Mr brother, Jim and I can still sing 'Eric the Off-A Bee' along with many other Python favorites. With Star Trek, (best show ever!)this is to howl. Thank you! Oh, dear, now "Always Look on the Bright Side' is playing in my head. Apparently, one of the Python guys knew they had made an historic contribution when he heard people singing that at a soccer match. Their side was *losing* but they ran to the song for comfort. Funny, Pam! Thank you!

A Novel Woman said...

Avec plaisir!

Actually, one of my daughters dated an Eric, and you know I was singing that song ALL the time. He wanted to kill me.(g)

Now it's stuck in MY head.

Thank YOU.

Lynne said...

Sorry about the song sticking. "Can a bee be said to be a bee, off a bee vis a vis his entity? Singing! Fiddle de dum, fiddle dee dee, Eric the Off a Bee! A B C D E F G! Eric the Off a Bee!" I shall stop this if you show up and 'splain to me ow to get that YouTube feed. I am silly and a bit-of-a-dunce, but there you are!
