 Post subject: Educated Pythons ... What did they each study ?
 Post Posted: Sun Mar 11, 2007 6:01 am 
We all know that the Pythons were all highly educated university types.
The constant references to philosophical doctrine and medical jargon belie that fact .... but does anyone know what each of the Pythons studied at university .... and did they all go to Oxford or Cambridge ... or both,or neither,or to Oxford a bit,and then a little bit to Cambridge
.... for instance to Cambridge on Mondays and Tuesdays till around lunchtime,then off to Oxford until morning tea time on Thursday,and then back to Cambridge for example.
.... I guess I could find all this stuff out by researching each one on the internet,but I'm really quite a lazy sod,so you lot can do that for me,and report back to me with your findings.
I know Graham was an accomplished medical man....some say a brain surgeon even,and Terry J was a historian,but what else did they graduate in?
I'd love to know.

nope, Jonesy studied only history, and now he's a graduated archeologist, like Michael
I want to be an archeologist to, to be specific a world-war archeologist

... Silly ! ... and get yourself blown up digging up unexploded bombs ?

Jack Howard, the 2oth Earl of Suffolk (who I was in my last incarnation incidentally) got himself blown up like that ... but he was only doing it for fun after he retired. What a guy !
