"No Monty Python" Section   (+2)  [vote for, against]
Monty Python free zones in pubs

Round here pubs tend to have smoking sections and non-smoking sections, that way everybody's happy. Smokers can smoke, non-smokers don't have to endure it, and I can sit in the clean air all evening and on occasion go have a cigarette if the fancy takes me.

Unfortunately if someone near me has had a few too many and decides that people haven't heard the Lumberjack Song enough times in their life and therefore should hear it again sung wrong and out of tune, there's not a lot I can do about it. Maybe we could introduce "Monty Python" and "No Monty Python" sections so that I don't have to hear people ruining great sketches that have been done already by people that were really funny. I could also on occasion go and have a quick "Blessed are the cheesemakers?!?" if the fancy takes me.

can't recall what my point was [lintkeeper2, Oct 04 2004, last modified Oct 05 2004]

So maybe you should head up a Popular People's Front about this or something. SPLITTER!!! Heh. Heh.

So you're saying I can't order spam egg sausage and spam anymore? Not even without the spam?

Stay out of student unions and you should be fine. Of course, this means you'll miss out on discussions of Dangermouse, Henry's Cat, Tots TV etc. It's a trade off.

Henry's Cat!!! memmmmories.....

Anyway... in Ireland (rep.of) they've completely banned the old cancer sticks in pub world... and its great... really. Mainly because all the pubs have been forced to build beer gardens adding a distinctly continental feel to our spit and sawdust locals. I suggest the build of Monty Python Gardens where dead parrots can be flogged to... well... death.

Yes, have been over to Ireland since the ban and I must say it's rather refreshing.
-- wagster, Aug 06 2004

watery tart, tee hee.

Yes to this idea. heard them all once to many at my house.
-- dentworth, Aug 06 2004

no pain here. smokers can kill themselves in the comfort of their own home. pubs are for drinking. anything that distracts from the this central pursuit should be banned. fruit machines. dancing. groping [bwv61].

all are heresy in my cathedral of booze. (hope I'm not confirming too many irish stereotypes here)
-- etherman, Aug 06 2004

This is a great idea!
...No it isn't
Yes it is!
Stop arguing!
I'm not arguing! I am merely continuing a Monty Python-based list in defiance of a dislike for Monty Python
No you're not!...

(Sorry) seriously though - if you hear people talk about Python in a pub - try going up to them and telling them to "stoppit - it's silly".

I think I'll go for a walk...
-- Freefall, Aug 06 2004

[dentworth] - /watery tart/ ?????

[bwv61] - wrong bars?

[etherman] - hope your Cathedral allows some sort of social interaction. I find silent, hell bent drinking rather unsettling.
-- wagster, Aug 06 2004

It's from the Holy Grail. See link.

sorry, didn't mean to "spam" you all. (lol)

[lintkeeper] Whatever happened to 'moist bint'?
-- wagster, Aug 06 2004

Oh yes, it's all in there!
-- wagster, Aug 06 2004

Try clicking on one of them.
-- lintkeeper2, Aug 06 2004

"moist bint" sounds, um, nasty.

Neutral to the idea...I like Monty Python. Except for when my friend Mike starts reciting the lines with the actors while we're watching. That's so annoying.
-- Machiavelli, Aug 06 2004

"moist bint" ... mmm, naa. Needs more sugar.
-- dpsyplc, Aug 06 2004

pedantic but *moistened bint*
-- dentworth, Aug 06 2004

True, and as a professor of the truth I cannot abide discussion of myths like the existance of some 'moist bint'.
