I love Monty Python!

Yesterday's video reminded me of Christian the Lion video. You've probably seen it, but it's very sweet if you've not. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=btuxO-C2IzE

Happy Thanksgiving!

What's funny about this to me is that I've often asked my friends, "Why couldn't I have just been born with math skills? At least then I could be an accountant!" It's the disease all of us starving artists with no job skills want to catch.

Just A Gal -- My mom is an accountant, and she is very adamant that accountants use arithmetic, NOT "math". Just fyi.

This video is so funny...I think I'll have to show it to my mom.

What I love about Python is that their humor is almost never mean. There is a goodness and kindness underneath it, I think.

I think it was Caesar III? a Roman world building game, anyway, with little cities you could build and little people bustling about in them. They would come into the little towns looking for jobs; you could click on them and they would say stuff like 'Do you know of any jobs here?' that kind of thing. One of them, though, said, 'I... I want to be a lion tamer!!'

One of the Python's best work outside of the Holy Grail was the Best Joke as a secret weapon skit. Funny to the moon!
