On the road again

The Lovely Becky and I are embarking on another 8+ hour car ride today, this time to the engagement party for my brother Tickle. There should be no soiling of garments for money, but given that many members of Clan Brando shall be attending, there may be airing of grievances for free.

Actually, given that I'm not sure what Tickle's fiancee or my parents know about the scandalous Poop-for-Gambling-Relief program, there could be some money-making possibilities....




I am traveling with a computer, so there may be some blogging this weekend.

Have fun. You'll have to make it your goal that everyone from both families know what your brother is capable of by telling that story over and over.

Hey! A piece of Python I've never seen! Thanks.

Have a good trip.

Was Danny Gans invited? No one has an engagement party without Danny Gans! I hope you're serving crab cakes.

I cannot hear the video.

Speaking of family: this is why I look for dead parents and only children on potential dating resumes.

a way to shorten that road trip is coming to mind....

AG's "article hearer" must be broken.

Brando said...

That is one of my favorite Monty Python sketches ever. MP was a big influence on me in general, but this sketch in particular pretty much captures my sense of humor.

It turns out that Tickle's fiancee was aware of his Vegas activities, and almost wished he had done it instead of losing a lot of money.

AG, the audio is a little quiet, you may need to turn up the volume on your article viewer.

I did turn it up, cobag.

Your article hearer is farkakta and bothering mine.

MP was a big influence on me in general …

Me, too, and continues to be, to this day.

I saw John Cleese on a talk show a few years back, and he spoke of how amazing it is to him that a short-lived British TV show from three decades ago continues to be so popular among Americans. Unlike a lot of stars who show resentment when asked about their early work, he seemed quite a good sport about it. Just baffled.

P.S. Here's an index pointing to 150 MP sketches, including possibly my all-time favorite: The Ministry of silly walks.

The airing of the grievances, is that like the running of the bulls?

Adorable said...

Where is everyone today?

Brando said...

I am getting caught up with work. I'll be back with a Top 10 tomorrow.

HAVE YOU SEEN THIS? I mean, sorry for the hyperbole, but seriously. You need to do this right now. RIGHT NOW.

It's Tuesday.

Just sayin'.
