So his tamped-down rage becomes a torrent of increasingly baroque synonyms for death, which Cleese and Chapman composed with the aid of a thesaurus.

All my illusions are crushed! A thesaurus!

Thanks for the clip though. It’s been so long since I’ve seen that.

This would have been a tragedy on the level of the burning of the Library of Alexandria.

The PBS sale was fortunate for Python in more ways than one: when the offer came in, the BBC was on the point of wiping the tapes for reuse.

I choked on my pipe when I read that.

Most of the early Tonight Shows with Johnny Carson had a similar fate, IIRC. The kinescopes were trashed — to make room for something else, I suppose.

A lot of the early Doctor Who suffered that fate.

Drop out of school before your mind rots from exposure to our mundane educational system. Forget about the Senior Prom and go to the library and *educate yourself* if you've got any guts. Some of you like *pep rallies* and plastic robots who tell you what to read. Forget I mentioned it. *This song has no message.* Rise for the flag salute. -- Liner notes for "Hungry Freaks, Daddy" on "Freak Out!"
