Four days of Movember to go (and a bit of Monty Python)

Four days to go, and here’s this morning’s picture (in the rain).

Movember day 26 (in the rain)

The whole moustache business reminds me of this Monty Python sketch… skip to 30 seconds in for the relevant line.

At this point I’m looking forward to the end of Movember. From a maintenance point of view, it’s easier to just be clean-shaven, and I thought I’d got used to the itching, but it still bugs me from time to time.

Donations have slowed down, so if you’ve been holding off, jump in now! Any amount, big or small, appreciated!

When I were a lad

I was noticing the other week that Isaac referred to some past golden age “when I were a lad”.

I asked him if he knew where the expression came from. He didn’t.

Where it comes from (at least in our house) is the Four Yorkshiremen sketch, which has been adopted by Monty Python, but in fact pre-dates it. It was originally performed on At Last The 1948 Show, by Tim Brooke-Taylor, John Cleese, Graham Chapman and Marty Feldman.

Here’s the video… I showed it to Isaac, and he laughed his head off. Enjoy.
