It seems that I get this challenge posted later and later each day. I guess P could be for "procrastination," but that's kind of boring. Besides, do any of us really know anyone who procrastinates? I didn't think so.
I wanted something a little more exciting, so P is for Python. [No snakes were involved in the writing of this post, Auntie M.]
I first saw Monty Python's Flying Circus on television when I was in college in the early 80's. My brother and I, on event-less Saturday nights would turn on the local PBS station to watch Python at 10:30 P.M. The bizarre humorous sketches stuck with us over the years. To this day, I cannot see the email term "spam" without hearing Terry Jones in my head.
* Once my brother and his friend did silly walks all the way up the hill to our house. Yes, in front of people.
* Whenever I see a man in a red plaid shirt, my mind plays The Lumberjack Song.
* My own mother was famous (well, within our family,) for saying, "Nudge, nudge--say no more, know what I mean?"
* When I worked at Gateway, I was walking through the technical support area, and saw a huge banner that said, "The Techs Who Say Ni!" I, a professed Python fan, asked one of my friends, "What does "ni" [short i sound] mean?" My friend, patiently explained that it was a Monty Python reference and that it was pronounced "nee." I have since repented.
* Can a true Monty Python fan hear the word "lupine" without thinking of Dennis Moore?
And finally, is there a Pythonite alive who doesn't picture clacking coconuts when seeing a horse gallop?
