after conversation with a lovely housemate this evening, i felt compelled to blog something from the old television programme 'not the nine o'clock news'. lots of you probably know rowan atkinson by now, although i have never liked mr bean. i just do not go for farce, it makes me anxious. these guys were 'it' when i was in high school. here, if you can live through the rotten synchronisation of sound to mouths, is their response to the furore around the release of 'monty python's life of brian'. it may help to enjoy this if you are a pythonist yourself.
