And now for something completely different…

I was born in England but moved to the US when I was very young. My parents held onto their British culture in many ways, one of which was continuing to watch British comedy.

When I was in elementary school, I remember walking in on my dad watching “Monty Python’s Flying Circus.” I watched it with him and thought it was the funniest thing I’d ever seen.

The sketch I walked in on was the Upper Class Twit of the Year, which I found even funnier because one of the “twits” had the same name as one of my brothers.

My brothers and I continued to enjoy Python for decades and followed the cast’s post-Python work as well, especially John Cleese’s (in fact, my wife and I re-watched “A Fish Called Wanda” just last night).

So I was thrilled to discover John Cleese on Cameo, offering to create personalized videos for a fee. My oldest brother had a birthday coming up, so I couldn’t resist paying John Cleese to insult him as a birthday gift.

He did not disappoint.

  1. Thank you for keeping the group open. I didn’t realise you had. If so I would have been there. I still use feedDemon daily. Thanks again for FeedDemon. Nice to get the girlfriend back and marry her

  2. Hey, did John Cleese just died on camera? And with his last cadaveric spasm managed to hit the send button?

    That was really funny. Marvelous thing, this Internet stuff.
