I'm a youth group director, and we did a month of sermons on The Gospel According to Monty Python (silly walks, holy grail, brian and dead parrot). As part of that, I did a lot of back research and came across my favorite sketch - Word Association Football, a soliloquy Cleese performs on [i]Matching Tie and Handkerchief[/i]. It was always my favorite, but I never took the time to sit down and actually look at what was being said, and especially between the lines.
Here's the skit. Because of the formatting, I've created a web page which uses helpful color coding. It just wouldn't work in this forum. If you're interested in seeing what I think Cleese is thinking, please visit
