Business Insider is no Monty Python.

Speaking of, is it just me or has the Monty Python fandom business finally died down over the past few years to the point where it's possible to appreciate them again without constantly thinking of a bunch of obnoxious theater club types misquoting lines from the Dead Parrot Sketch out of context every 10 minutes?
Hasn't died down, just resting.

I think we've turned a corner. This is the second Monty Python reference on this site that's made me laugh.

Soon the annoying misquoters will go away, Monty Python will become fresh again & wildly popular, idiots will start inserting ham-handed references to Python again, and then their fandom will fall into disrepute once more. This is the Cycle of Nerd.

Oh, God, OZ nailed it. I think a lot of those people have moved on to quoting the Simpsons every ten minutes, though that's less "theater people" than "internet residents."

God, I hope so. I don't need people yelling A SHRUBBERY! in my life.

I will always love the Nigerian scammers that were led to believe they could get a TV deal out of acting out the dead parrot sketch.

I am not proud to admit that in my teenage years, I was an Inappropriate Python Quoter. I had all of their movies memorized, I'd put on impromptu performances with my equally obsessed friends, and I still have the incredibly worn down VHS copy of Holy Grail I had. I genuinely, sincerely, thought them to be the apex of comedy, and in my own little small town sphere of zero reference, I was probably comparatively correct. I openly snubbed the other frame of reference point I had, SNL, and it felt more like the correct decision to make rather than a natural evolution of personal taste.

I think that all of that changed as soon as I discovered Kids in the Hall, Fry and Laurie, The State and, later, Mitchell and Webb. Suddenly I had a bigger frame of reference and was honestly pretty overwhelmed by the choice. Youtube really opened up a lot of vistas for me.

It's not so much that Python fandom is dying, it's that Python fandom is no longer the most easily accessible thing. While Python was certainly original and casts a long shadow, there's plenty between then and now to glut on easily. I didn't have that luxury in 1997, when I was 17 and still thinking Doctor Who was a weird, exotic thing and anime was this secret that only I had discovered.

That said, I hate Red Dwarf, will always hate Red Dwarf, and I'll punch you in the windpipe if you quote Red Dwarf.

Is the idea that I should now fully conceptualize how big the observable universe is compared to my basketball?
Fuck the Universe. If it isn't doing to help on issues of social justice, then it's agsint us.
