BAD NEWS

Historic Scotland have decided that they are not going to run a Monty Python day at Doune Castle this year :cry: :cry: :cry:

They say they haven't got the money to put it on.

Mucho sadness

That sucks. I didn't even know there WAS a Monty Python Day :oops: . Does anyone know if Woy Woy, NSW (Australia) still walks backwards for Christmas. I dunno, maybe it was just a one off. Anywho, I remeber hearing that, considering Spike Milligan did a lot of his writing at his parents' place in Woy Woy, the townsfolk, in the spirit of his song 'I'm Walking Backwards for Christmas', walked backwards, for Christmas. Or rather they were going to until the council forbade it on the grounds that they might fall over :roll: . Nevertheless, Australians being the cleverest of peoples, overcame this problem by turning their clothes around back the front and walking forwards :D

Noooooo!!

This can't be happening to me!!! I was planning to assist because I'll be living in London in September, so I had it much easier to go than ever!!

Isn't this unfair?? I travel to London three times last year to see Spamalot, and a couple of months ago I find out that next September, at the same time I leave Barcelona to live for three months in London (just next to Spamalot), it is released in Barcelona (see www.spamalotelmusical.com). So I think "Oh, well, you still have London's Spamalot, and, of course, you can travel to Scotland to the Monty Python day". But NO!!! The day is canceled!! Am I unlucky or not?? :cry: :cry:

What is wrong with people? Are we British or aren't we?

This is the 40th anniversary year.

Bashing bricks together and 16-tonne weights falling upon merchant bankers and chartered accountants should be commonplace.
