    God I love Python...I don't know how many sketches of theirs I have committed to memory.

    Thank you Terry Jones! Very few people can honestly say they made the world a happier place...you were one of six.







    I want John Cleese to do my eulogy...

    So very sad. I've loved the Pythons since they first broadcast the show here, and I've got pretty much everything on DVD I believe. Such wonderfully inventive minds. Rest In Peace, Mr. Jones. You've given the world many, many laughs and brought cheer to so many people!

    This makes me so sad. The passing of an era, really. As John Cleese said, "Two down, four to go." There's a lot of insight buried in that statement. There's no going back, is there?

    He was a rare talent, indeed - comedian, historian, humanist, scientist, philosopher. I can only hope that that incomparable mind had a rich internal landscape to keep him occupied, during these last years when he could not vocalize what was going on inside.

    I was just a wee lad when my older sister sat me down and watch Monty Python in re-runs on PBS. They began my lifelong love of British humor. I was really too young to understand them fully, but i loved 'em anyway. A guy walking through the woods in search of flying lessons, and animals around him are exploding. What's not to love?

    I'm glad that Mr Jones and I (or is that "me") were on the same timeline, so I could enjoyed and be influenced by that inimitable Python humor. Humor has changed in the last two decades, and not for the better. It's good to have been able to be here for him and the rest of those lunatics.

    Ripping Yarns is great! Terry and Michael Palin wrote all the episodes, although Terry only appeared in Tomkinson's Schooldays.

    My avatar is Michael Palin from The Testing of Eric Olthwaite.

    Speaking of Michael, nice tribute to Terry yesterday.
