Spam

Being a product of 8 years at a British boarding school there are two 'meat' products I hold in particular loathing...one is meat loaf, the other is Spam.

And now Spam has got a whole lot worse...with Stinky French garlic flavour

The makers of Spam, the processed pink slab of tinned meat that has long been a national joke, announced yesterday that they are to produce a "collector's edition" flavour, Stinky French Garlic, to cash in on the West End opening of Spamalot, the Monty Python musical fresh from Broadway, at the end of the month.



Monty Python has a lot to answer for.

Speaking of Monty Python, it doesn't seem to be too well known in the Philippines, not sure if that is due to The Life of Brian and the other movies and possibly songs like this one.

Hello, Mdme Chiang: there's a small cult following for Monty Python in the Philippines, but it's out in the fringes. Usually deemed too intellectual by the rest of Filipino society (oh! the irony!).

In all honesty I can only really take Monty Python in small doses...but I do love the Life of Brian!!!

Glad to hear that there is a small following here....

I now have the spam song stuck in my head. Can honestly say I love Monty Python. Life of Brian is a classic, but it will never replace Holy Grail in my heart.

Mdme Chiang, this one's for you:

Centurion: What is this then? Romanes eunt domus, "People called Romanes they go the house"?

Brian It-it says, "Romans, go home"!

Centurion: No, it doesn't! What's Latin for "Roman"? [grabs Brian's ear] Come on, come on!

Brian: Romanus!

Centurion: Goes like?

Brian: Annus!

Centurion: Vocative plural of annus is...?

Brian: Anni?

Centurion: [writes] Romani. And eunt? What is eunt?

Brian: "Go"! Let-

Centurion: Conjugate the verb "to go".

Brian: Ire; eo, is, it, imus, itis, eunt!
