How To Explain Monty Python. . . [View all]

To a young person who has never heard of them before?

After you have finished bemoaning what the world is coming to and feeling very old, where do you start the process?

I chose "The Spanish Inquisition" and gave the example of the comfy chair.

I also listed a few of their movies. Life of Brian strikes me as an excellent starting place, because Christianity's broad sway gives a point of reference for most viewers. Holy Grail should be fairly accessible, but someone completely unaware of Monty Python may not have heard of King Arthur.

What do you think?
