And now for something completely different….............
I grew up listening to this introduction most of my childhood life.
Monty Python was a truly fantastic comedy. Even as a child in rural Pennsylvania, USA, I was able to fully understand John Cleese and his troop of wonderfully hilarious geniuses. I don’t know if my parents quite “got it”, but they laughed at times as well. It made me want to be a child in England instead of America. :-)
I still smile whenever I see this sequence of goofy steps Cleese was able to pull off on camera – he supposedly pulled a back muscle on the third take, but that may be a myth…......... maybe not.
I wanted to do this work for my own wall, but I am pretty sure I already have a buyer for it. Cool!
Overall, the piece measures 5 1/2×16 inches and is tad over a quarter of an inch thick solid cherry.
Finish is a soaking in lemon oil and backed with thick felt.
