Not a blog; just a journal
I was amazed to discover that all the old Monty Python TV shows played in Japan, many years ago. The Man had seen them all.HOWEVER... he didn't know the Ministry of Silly Walks. Turned out they censored. Can you believe it? It might offend real cripples, you see.They did the same thing to that Mr Bean episode where he is changing his clothes on the beach. Remember how after all his contortions to keep himself hidden the guy on the beach turns out to be blind? They cut that bit. The episode made NO SENSE AT ALL without it, but never mind. It might offend real blind people. (Who would, of course, be watching Mr Bean...)Political correctness takes on some weird forms, here.
Oh my gosh this pic is a scream, love it. Badaunt your comments made my son and I laugh in the memory...Those flying circus guys crack me up, don't ya know? Huge understatement. xxx, Lori
I have a cherished "Ministry of Silly Walks" t-shirt!
