View The Argument Clinic, by Monty Python’s Flying Circus

We often take tones toward annotation, reading and writing. I thought I’d add a funny bit of text: Monty Python’s sketch “The Argument Clinic.”  Check out this hilarious bit of coverage.  These were guys who had been educated at the best English universities, so they often dealt with the same stuff we happen to be taking on.

If you like this, I recommend the following follow-ups:


“The Witch Sketch”

“Novel Writing” (google it with Thomas Hardy and you’ll find it)

“The Cheese Shop Sketch”

“The Village Idiot Sketch”

In each, you’ll notice that heavy-duty logic or philosophy ideas are being sent up in ways relevant to our reading and writing.

“No, they’re not!”
