I'm rather interested in cultural influences. For example, how the media changed after the Monty Python series were on the run, how people's attitudes changed ( towards comedy, jokes, topics that were mercileslly ridiculed by MP). )


The one and only one only way that Monty Python has changed the world
is that merchant bankers and chartered accountants are being
much more careful of 16-ton weights falling from above.

People are a lot more silly these days.




Now seriously, without Python, there would be no such thing as nonsense humor, which is a very good type of humor, to distract us of our daily problems.

Your A Level English Coursework... on Python? Couldn't expand on that one at all could you...

I'm most intrigued...

We can do research project on anything we want, and research things like linguistics, sentence structure etc on how humour is derived from the context blablabla in pythons case :D

At least its something I enjoy watching!
