Monty Python just isn't that funny. A couple of the movies are worth a chuckle and a handful of the sketches are memorable but the rest is...meh. For sketch comedy The Kids in the Hall is way better but for some reason never quite got the props it deserved. I think it's because Monty Python has the British accents so people watch it and think the jokes are smarter than they are and watching it is a cultural experience or something.

That's an industry that should receive actual regulation and heavy handed enforcement when fraud is in covered.

Well there's that, or the fact that you have no idea what you're talking about. It could go either way with this one...

I'm not even sure what the point of the Python quote is. This doesn't really relate to the dead parrot sketch except for the deception. But the judge doesn't seem to be focusing on that as much as wandering through the decision, trying to reference the Parrot Sketch as many times as humanly possible.

You can get away with a lot when your comedy group is made up of writers.

/They understand the value of setup pacing and delivery mixed with randomness. When done right a dinner menu can be hilarious.

Really, that was almost a professional troll, but I think it was sincere. Also... I love that show. It was on when HBO when I was a kid, so I missed a bunch of the Canada refs though.
