"And I thought you were so rugged!" I think the better question would be who DOESN'T remember these guys. Great stuff. Still makes me laugh out loud.

I participate in a UK computer forum and there are many threads that include their clips. After all these years, they're still funny.

I was watching the NCAA tournament and the SFA team are the Lumberjacks, made me think of Monty Python. Also made me think that I had not heard anything about them in a few years.

Michael Palin did a great job in "Around the world in 80 days" In true Monty Python he used a cheap inflatable globe as his map

I remember them and the movie Sidd mentioned. But, at times it is hard to understand with the accents. Maybe John 2sheds can sub title old skits for me?

And, of course, as all good Muvipixers know, John "Two Sheds" even took his forum name from a Monty Python sketch!

Oh, happy memories. The sweetie looks like Polly from Fawlty Towers. I remember the world tour quite well. Most enjoyable.

John and Francisco have been quite mum lately. Maybe it is an Italian thing. :)

It hasn't been that long, I believe both of them posted this month. If I lived in that part of the world, I'd be out more often too. :cool:
