And Now for Something Completely (Refreshingly) Different

Monty Python’s Flying Circus: All the Words, Volume 1 Monty Python’s Flying Circus: All the Words, Volume 2

Remember rock-band Metallica (and others) moaning about users downloading their songs for free on Napster, and all their court orders and whining and all that? Well, leave it to the men of Monty Python to have a different take on things – and a sense of humour.

There are countless Monty Python videos up on Youtube already, without authorization, but rather than having a snit about it, the surviving Pythons have decided to join ’em rather than try to beat ’em, Yahoo news said today.

“Now the tables are turned. It’s time for us to take matters into our own hands,” they said. “We know who you are, we know where you live and we could come after you in ways too horrible to tell.

“But being the extraordinarily nice chaps we are, we’ve figured a better way to get our own back: We’ve launched our own Monty Python channel on YouTube,” they said.

I love it.

If you’re not familiar with Monty Python (!), then All The Words: Volume 1 and All The Words: Volume 2 are probably great places to start.
