Stoning, Python style

November 19, 2008 | By | 5 Replies More

It’s been awhile since we’ve discussed the rules for stoning found in the Bible. Rather than rehashing those rules, I decided to post this stoning demo by Monty Python (from “The Life of Brian”).

BTW, if you enjoy Monty Python (I very much do), you should be aware that they have their own “Python Channel” on Youtube, where you can watch many of their skits in HD.

    A classic! You wonder how many times Cleese witnessed a schoolmaster in the throes of a disciplinary tantrum in order to perfect that persona.

    It seems like there are other Python sketches that could stand in for blog conversations. The Dead Parrot sketch, the Argument Sketch (that's not argument, it's contradiction!) and more…

    "That’s not argument, it’s contradiction!" Hmmm…

    I really doubt that we could use the sex education bit from "The Meaning of Life"

    Another favorite Python routine in "Life of Brian" is the "Suicide Squad Attack" near the end, although the bit about Naughtious Maximus is the true classic.

    Niklaus: I know the skit to which you are referring when you refer to the sex ed skit. Ah, yes, that would be too risque for this site. Uproariously funny, though.

    On the other hand, here a link to the Naughtious Maxmus skit, which is side-splittingly funny:
