Monty Python (Live at the Hollywood Bowl) - The Philosopher’s Song

There’s nothing Nietzsche couldn’t teach ya' ‘bout the raising of the

wrist… Socrates himself was permanently pissed…”

Watching Monty Python Live at the Hollywood Bowl.

I haven’t seen this in AGES. Here’s something I never thought about, though… JK Rowling said she’s a big fan of Monty Python (and claims to put some of their humour in her books) and in the Whizzo Chocolates/Crunchy Frog sketch, there’s a sweet called a cockroach cluster. I have to wonder now if she borrowed that from them (as well as the chocolate frog thing). It seems pretty logical that she did and I just think it’s freaking fantastic.
