I liked the entry about the hermit crab. :D It was a little too long, but I liked the odd speech.

EDIT: Which entry had an octopus in it?

To my knowledge there is no entry with an octopus. It's unfortunate, really. If there had been one with an octopus, I wouldn't have had to lie about there being one.

We already have a philosophy forum, Jared, thanks.

Ygg probably deserves to win, though I'm probably only leaning that way now to slight one of the internet's thousands of Python-obsessed comedy professors.

I'm not Python-obsessed. I prefer Fawlty Towers, in fact. Yggdrasil's entry is, curiously, much more Pythonesque than Lupa's, which is Fawltyesque in its psychosexual masochism. Right?

Shouldn't you be doing commercials with pop culture icons or something?

Since when the fuck is Monty Python about nuanced, intelligent humor? Did this clown even bother watching Flying Circus?

"I fart in your general direction."?

I think British people sound smart.

To understand the rich nuances of the Flying Circus, Herr Gus, you must have read Marshall McLuhan. Still, one might blame the Pythons for Generation Spongebob. Now Yes, Minister is some fine, nuanced humor, consisting primarily of dialogue. Smart-sounding British people never sounded so bloody smart. It's the dog's bollocks.

Uh huh. Cannibal sailors, Confuse-A-Cat, the Lumberjack song, diaper retards, maneating houses, and marauding bands of babies that kidnap thirty year olds are the epitome of sophistication.


The only truly intellectual skits they ever did were The Mouse Problem and the artist with the rebellious businessman son. Of course, I don't have the benefit of highminded pomposity and wishful thinking, so I guess I just don't get it.

In fact, you don't get it. The tasteless silliness was satire of contemporary British society and continental intellectual society (hence the Proust and Sartre references), along the lines of Jonathan Swift. The individual sketches must be taken in the context of each themed episode. They played with the conventions of the television medium this way. Confuse-A-Cat is perhaps the worst comedy sketch ever written; I don't defend it.

I'm sorry...
Am I right in saying that somehow a commentary on Harry Potter Competition Entries has somehow turned into a debate on whether Monty Python was the height of sophisticated humour?

I didn't notice this thread until just now. So my entry was good except jared had to go and analyse it or something. The only three things that influenced it were Piers Anthony, Hermiones need to be right all the time, and the creepy thing that is Daniel Radcliffe.

Ah, Yggdrasil, now I understand; it is funnier in this new light, but I still put your entry at second place. Ironically, Hermione is wrong, isn't she? I mean, 'gypsy' is not coextensive with 'Roma.' As Piers says, "The Roma betimes are indeed called gypsies, and incorrectly, but not everything that is called a gypsy is Roma. Some gypsies really are just travelling charlatans." -- Piers Anthony in Fire on a Horse-Sized Spaceship

Oh man, I read that entry date as 10/15/2007 for some reason. I thought I had a month! I'm not sure if I'll enter it, but not that I've bothered to post here I prolly will.

Heh, it's not like it's a contest that should take too long for most people to enter. 1 photo and a short description is all ya need for it...

I thought about maybe winning this contest but the first thing that came to mind was some kind of mask entitled "bukkake avenger", which I am having a very hard time even picturing what such a mask would be.
