Line of the Day #DeadParrotSketch

monty-python-dead-parrot-sketch

This parrot is no more. It has ceased to be. It’s expired and gone to meet its maker. This is a late parrot. It’s a stiff. Bereft of life, it rests in peace. If you hadn’t nailed it to the perch, it would be pushing up the daisies. It’s rung down the curtain and joined the choir invisible. This is an ex-parrot.

The very famous Monty Python quote from John Cleese (in the scene with Michael Palin) who was conned into buying a dead parrot. It was inspired by Palin’s experience with a car salesman “who had an excuse for everything”. You can find the memorable Argument Room sketch hereΒ and the oft-referenced Roman achievements here.

  1. I used to keep a Norwegian Blue Parrot when I used to be a lumberjack. It used to talk to me about the fiords when I went to the lavatory. I wish I had never heard of Monty Python because now everybody thinks I wear women’s clothing when I hang out in bars. I wish to make it clear I don’t wear anything in bars.
