    In June 2006, I found myself standing at a pedestrian crossing in Tottenham Court Road, London waiting for the lights to go green. Standing next to me was Michael Palin. We both ignored each other. But, I couldn't resist - so I turned to him and said, "Not looking bad for for an ex-leper then". He turned slowly and said "F**k Off!" and walked across the street. As he walked away, I called after him "But how shall I f**k off?". I was only sorry that hadn't "Spat in my face" - what I wouldn't have given to have been spat at in the face...

    NB. This post requires knowledge of "The Life of Brian" to be fully appreciated.

    All the accolades are well deserved.

    Matching tie and Handkerchief is their best non-film work. Life of Brian is still wonderful.

    We didn't start seeing MPFC regularly on TV until after The Holy Grail hit the theaters.
    Like many, my gang memorized skits, argued about britspeak meanings, etc., like total geeks.
    Quotes still come up in conversation among the few of us extant. I occasionally meet with one of the old gang for lunch. Not unusual for us to greet each other with, "Hello Bruce! Hello Bruce!"
