How about the rest of you? Rather be at the pictures I suppose? Right then, off with you.

I was trying to think where he was on my list of favorite pythons but they are all good. They will all be dead sooner or later :(((((((

Going to buy a shrubbery in his honor.

I can't think of anything I'd rather not be doing than marching up and down the SQUARE!

Eric has always been my Python. Whether he's playing the dumb blond or the wiseass who pushes his castmates to insanity, he has always been a delight to watch. Plus, IRRC. He's the one who was instrumental in bringing Spamalot to Broadway

That's a good clip to show --- for Michael Palin's birthday.

No he doesn't.

I saw his "Greedy Bastard Tour" show and was astonished at how fresh and full of energy he was, in spite of having obviously done the songs and sketches 1000+ times.  For some reason I was expecting it to be a little tired and old but he proved me wrong.
2014-03-29 03:12:22 PM  
Is he looking on the bright side?

Nudge nudge wink wink blow at the candles say no more, squire, SAY - NO - MORE!!!

Will they play the Not The Noel Coward Song at the party?

That bit is one of the funniest things in existence; how those guys kept a straight face I'll never know.

And remember, you won't succeed on Broadway if you haven't any Jews.

Idle's the only Python I've ever met or will ever meet.  (He had a meet-n-greet autograph session after the show on the tour he did before the Greedy Bastard Tour.  I told him he put on an "ass-kicking show".)

I'll just leave this here.

...and run.
2014-03-29 05:15:23 PM  
He made the prettiest woman out of the lot.

What a silly bunt.

Happy Birthday Eric, and ham sandwich bucket and water plastic durolects, rubber McFisheries underwear. By the way, plug rapid emulsions seek custard without sustenance in Kipling duck geriatric scenery; maximizes press insulating devilment grunting sapphire clubs, incidentally.
But tonight, Sam, Pam, Bombay, Bermuda in diphtheria rusting McOutline splendor, rabid and fud-fud-phooey jog strabbedly big bowerly or rule liners, muss green gauges micturate, with nipples and tiptoe rusting machinery rustically inclined.

/Loved that skit

Anderson's Pooper: Will they play the Not The Noel Coward Song at the party?

He's running away, and buggering off...

mjones71822: I was trying to think where he was on my list of favorite pythons but they are all good. They will all be dead sooner or later :(((((((

My list at the moment:

1) Graham Chapman (being dead for 25 years has helped him immensely, but A Liar's Autobiography was awesome)

2) Terry Jones

3) Michael Palin

4) Eric Idle

5) Terr Gilliam (currently Trying Too Hard)

6) John Cleese (so much potential gone to waste, and I feel like it's only a matter of time before he supports the Tories).

Wow. That looked like a rusty bucket of cold phlegm.

Happy birthday you cheeky bastard!
