Super rare– there’s another, more elaborate version of this bit in Live At The Hollywood Bowl, but this version seems somehow more anarchic, more unhinged. Graham Chapman is clearly drunk onstage, and the expression on Terry Gilliam’s face is priceless.
Why do we like satire? Well, some very lucky people go through life in the very warm and safe cocoon of good luck and fortune. For those particular folks, perhaps the smile of good fortune never leaves their lips. The rest of us live anything but that kind of life and at this moment in time are saddled with enormous corruption and gluttonous greed at the highest levels, particularly in Washington with our "elected" officials and on Wall Street.
Most of us are determined to change this abdominable situation, however slow it is in coming. Satire is one, albeit, small weapon in the war, and we proudly present the best and most meaningful of that satire here.
Yes, the rest of us fight wars, get cancer, get into car accidents, lose friends and family to death or illness or worse...we are the ones who need a smile every now and again to balance out the garbage can that Washington and Wall Street can and often does dump on our heads.
Laugh...and laugh often. Laugh as often as you can. Laugh in their faces. And make sure the bastards know that we are on to them!
