Happy 71st Birthday, Michael Palin!
Yes, well, that’s the sort of blinkered, philistine, pig-ignorance I’ve come to expect from you non-creative garbage…

"People are saying things and assessing Monty Python differently each year. Judging from the reaction to this show [the upcoming July stage show at the O2], we’re a sort of national institution, but we’re now no longer seen as an attacking force. But that’s always been the case. We have been a bit nasty, but in the end we come out with extrovert, joyful stuff. Our reputation just seems to have become embedded as something which the British like about being British.” — Michael Palin, GQ (British Edition, April 2014)
Monty Python’s The Meaning of Life (1983). Dir. Terry Jones.
