Re: Monty Python

Why is it that nobody remembers the name of Johann Gambolputty... de von
gumberaber-shonedanker-kalbsfleisch-mittler-aucher von Hautkopft of Ulm?

This is perhaps my favorite sketch of all:
  • (A cocktail party in Dulwich. Quiet party-type music. Constant chatter.) Host Ah, John. Allow me to introduce my next-door neighbour. John Stokes, this is A Snivelling Little Rat-Faced Git. Ah!
    Mr Git: Hello, I noticed a slight look of anxiety cross your face for a moment just then, but you needn't worry - I'm used to it. That's the trouble of having a surname like Git.
    John: Oh ... yes, yes.
    Mr Git: We did think once of having it changed by deed-poll, you know - to Watson or something like that. But A Snivelling Little Rat-Faced Watson's just as bad eh?
    John: Yes, yes, I suppose so.
    (Mrs Git (John Cleese in Drag) approaches.)
    Mr Git: Oh, that's my wife. Darling! Come and meet Mr... what was it?
    John: Stokes-John Stokes.
    Mr Git: Oh yes. John Stokes, this is my wife, Dreary Fat Boring Old.
    John: Oh, er, how do you do.
    Mrs Git: (in a masculine voice) How do you do.
    (Mrs Stokes appears.)
    Mrs Stokes: Darling, there you are!
    John: Yes, yes, here I am, yes.
    Mr Git: Oh, is this your wife?
    John: Yes, yes, yes, this is the wife. Yes. Um darling, these, these are the Gits.
    Mrs Stokes: (slightly shocked) What?
    John: The Gits.
    Mr Git: Oh, heaven's sakes we are being formal. Does it have to be surnames?
    John: Oh, no, no. Not at all. No. Um, no, this... this... this is my wife Norah, er, Norah Jane, Norah Jane Stokes. This is Snivelling Little Rat-Faced Git. And this is his wife Dreary Fat Boring Old Git.
    Mr Git: I was just telling your husband what an awful bore it is having a surname like Git.
    Mrs Stokes: (understanding at last) OH Oh well, it's not that bad.
    Mr Git: Oh, you've no idea how the kids get taunted. Why, only last week Dirty Lying Little Two-Faced came running home from school, sobbing his eyes out, and our youngest, Ghastly Spotty Horrible Vicious Little is just at the age when taunts like 'she's a git' really hurt. Yes.
    (Mrs Git gobs colourfully into her handbag.)
    John: Do ... do you live round here?
    Mr Git: Yes, we live up the road, number 49 - you can't miss it. We've just had the outside painted with warm pus.
    John: (with increasing embarrassment) Oh.
    Mr Git: Yes. It's very nice actually. It goes nicely with the vomit and catarrh we've got smeared all over the from door.
    Mrs Stokes: I think we ought to be going. We have two children to collect.
    Mr Git: Oh, well, bring them round for tea tomorrow.
    Mrs Stokes: Well...
    Mr Git: It's Ghastly Spotty Cross-Eyed's birthday and she's having a disembowelling party for a few friends. The Nauseas will be there, and Doug and Janice Mucus, and the Rectums from Swanage.
    Voice Over: (and caption) 'And Now a Nice Version of That Same Sketch'
    (Cut to exactly the same set-up as before.)
    Host: John! Allow me to introduce our next-door neighhour. John, this is Mr Watson.
    Watson: Hello. I noticed a slight look of anxiety cross your face just then but you needn't worry.
    (Cut to nun.)
    Nun: I preferred the dirty version.
    (She is knocked out by the boxer. Cut to Women's Institute applause film.)
