My favorite is the stoning scene from Life of Brian....

"But you *DID* say Jehova!!!"

My brother and I used to do the whole "Eric the half-a-bee" skit together ...

"I love this hive employee,
bisected accidentally ..."

And "The Argument Clinic," too.

His accent was much better than mine.
Well, anyway, my family thought it was a riot ...

Mercy, where to begin - does it have to be just one? I mean:

The Ministry of funny walks

Spam spam spam spam

the ladies club doing the redramatazation of battles

the dead parrot

Vicious gangs of old ladies

The Lumberjack in English and in German!!

The joke that kills people

Deja Vu

Should we start a poll about which one is the funniest??

Am I to blame for mentioning Monty Python. In case I wasn't clear, I hate Monty Python!!! I tried watching the Life of Brian, and lasted about 15 minutes before I switched it off. I thought it was the biggest load of drivel I had ever seen!!

How not to be seen. (Remember "Mrs. H.B. Smegma"?)

One of the very first ones with Eric Idle reading a children's story full of suggestive lines.

Actually, anything with Eric Idle. He's my favorite.

The very first Flying Circus I ever saw (on PBS) had a minister visiting a family and he suddenly freaks out and starts yelling "Tits! Tits! I love tits!" I'd love to see that one again.

I always like the catapulting cow scene in the Holy Grail.

I also like "Always Look on the Bright Side Of Life" during the crucifixtion scene.

Say no more

Is it safe to bring up "Fawlty Towers"? No matter how many times I see the same episodes, I laugh so hard it hurts ...

Irishmommy, maybe that's more your speed ... know what I mean?

My best friend and I performed the Argument Clinic sketch in our high school talent show.

Don't forget about the fish slapping dance, or a day in the life of a stockbroker (wow, boobs on TV!).

Remember the one where Eric Idle is a marriage counselor and a couple comes in for counseling and he starts hitting on the wife?

Or how to defend yourself when someone is coming at you with a bannana.
