In 1985, a fossil of a previously unknown species of gigantic prehistoric snake from the Miocene was discovered in Riversleigh, Queensland, Australia. The Australian palaeontologist who discovered the fossil snake was a Monty Python fan, and he gave the snake the taxonomic name of Montypythonoides riversleighensis in honour of the Monty Python team.(Translated from Greek Μοντυπυθωνοειδῆ to English, Montypythonoides means "like Monty Python").

Unfortunately I believe that later this name was declared void when the fossil became classified under a previously named genus :cry: . There is a Monty Python comet/asteroid/meteor however, plus one named after each member of the group. There is also I think a lemur with the specific epithet (second part of the species name) cleesii, named after the John.

If anyone here watches the Food Network series Good Eats (with Alton Brown), he tends to make a LOT of Python references. Usually random ones that only true Python fans would know. :)

Terry Gilliam does 'Good Eats' illustrations.

I just saw an advert for a game called Dragon Tavern. It's motto is Gold, glory, huge... tankards of ale.

In The Horrible Histories Collection- America and it's Scurfy Settlers a comic showed two Jamestown farmers looking at some gentlemen walking by. "It must be a gentleman." says one. "How can you tell?" "They're not covered in dirt."

In The Horrible Histories Collection- The Blitzed Brits a comic showed two men and a dog wearing a gas mask. "My dog has a gas mask." "How does it smell?" "Awful."

Tonight, I saw a commercial about people changing the world. It said 'My project: to make the ridiculous sublime' while showing a clip of John Cleese.

I often go past houses for sale with the estate agent sign up called "Jones & Chapman" It always gives me a touch of happiness :D

Dreaded double post...

I was watching Good Eats on the Food Network again tonight, and during one of the animations 'Liberty Bell' started playing. Needless to say, I FLIPPED out and started jumping up and down like the loony that I am. :lol:
