And don't forget this bit which is wonderful:

- Excuse me, Miss.
- What do you mean, "Miss"?
- Oh, I'm sorry, I have a cold.

Now this is the sort of thing that makes British humor so unique.

The thing about the Parrot Sketch that I find hilarious is John Cleese's many different ways of driving the point home that the parrot is dead and the language he uses- he is just a master of exaggeration. the body language too, but then Cleese just cracks me up period. i love it when he starts banging the parrot on the counter and yelling in it's ear "'ELLO POLLY!!! WAKEY WAKEY!!!" lol

Hm, another part I didn't react particularly on. Well, I noticed it, but didn't think of it very much.

What do you think is the unique-ness? The plain absurd nature of the 'explanation'?

Yeah! Blimey, it's bleedin' nonsense humour. You know the Python humour wasn't dependent on punchlines.

It was quite fun to watch the scene at the beginning. John comes in and says that he has a complait... And the Michael's face was quite dozy. I like the whole sketch because of Michaels and Johns performance :)

'VOOM? listen mate, this parrot wouldn't 'voom' if you put 20,000 volts through it!'

the way john uses his voice in this sketch cracks me up ( in the secret policeman's ball version) - the undulating pitch - usually ending up in a squeak - also he just looks so totally outraged and melodramatic, while mike is quite calm and not really bothered - like in his mind, he's not really there, but out the back having a fag break
Pining for the Fjords??????

because f.ag is also slang for a gay person, and can also just be used as a straight insult.

Oh god- I LOVE THAT PART! I completely forgot about it until you said something. I laughed so hard the first time I saw that, just because Cleese is so awkwardly causual about it.
