Fish slapping

I began watching Monty Python on WNET in New York when I was, oh, about eight. Which explains a lot about me.

The pinnacle of Monty Python’s sketch comedy was a 30 second skit called “The Fish-slapping Dance”. Here is the skit, and a few related videos.

May the rest of your night be filled with happy fish slapping.

    “I don’t think you can find anybody in America who has worked harder for (Obama’s) re-election or supported this bill or went out of his way to explain the bill to the American people more than I did,” Clinton continued.

      Really? So it was Bill Clinton who won the election for PBO and got ACA passed? Bill phone banked the nation every day and tabled every weekend and held house parties and registered folks to vote? Bill walked precincts to GOTV? Bill was the one who hammered Congress for months to pass ACA?

      This guy is a self-absorbed man who loves the sound of his own voice and can’t stop stepping on other people to make himself important and relevant. I shudder to imagine what more is to come.

    My family thinks that appreciating the humor of Monty Python is a sign of intelligence!

      Well, now we know the new line of attack MSM will use against the President.

      Kevin Drum is distorting facts I’m pretty sure. For one, it has been discussed by experts that the basic STRUCTURE of the website presented some problems.

    Yes, just imagine …

    … and imagine how Ike, Teddy & Abe would respond to the just how truly evil today’s GOP is.

    Allow the image to burn inside you every single day between now and 4 Nov 2014 and thereby do everything you can to eradicate that evil.

    i’ll never catch up with all the fab posts and pithy comments. not sure if this was already reported:

    ‘ Hawaii News Now has learned that the President, First Lady Michelle Obama and daughters Sasha and Malia will travel to Honolulu sometime around December 20. ‘

    and they’re scheduled to stay here, playing and enjoying their family time, till january 5.

      Good Morning to you, Layla. You actually sound as if you’re going to enjoy puncturing. That’s one reason I never take the flu shot – some of you nurses enjoy the process too much. ;)
