Elayne: Speaking of Monty, I had a full Monty... well, a couple of partial Montys this week on my blog. The (Michael) Palin for President page, and John Cleese in a Youtube vid talking about the joys of extremism.
Dexter Astrofong: Elaynes LAST reference is out of bound, that's Monty pytgon
Merlyn: E, the shoe circus commercial?
cease: i must watch that el
Elayne: Yes Brian, that;'s the one! What the eff??? Very perplexing ad.

llanwydd: michael palin for president is an interesting idea
Merlyn: It's up a bunch of times, here's one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ImyK29QLs_A
llanwydd: has he moved to california like his friend eric?
Elayne: I hate to say it Llan, but technically, Sarah is more qualified than Michael, as he wasn't born in this country. :)

ConvenientTween: Going to post that one on my site, if you dont' mind

Elayne: Cat, I fear for us as well. I hate how so many people wallowed in "9/11 (TM)" today. We have a TV feed in our office lobby, and it was tuned to MSNBC (I think) today which was playing a RERUN OF TV COVERAGE FROM 9/11/01!
Elayne: What are they thinking!?!?!
Elayne: Thanks Tween.
ConvenientTween: Wish there was a direct link to just that blong entry, E

Dexter Astrofong: Elayne: The sauce is by Blue Screen of Death Valley, CA

Mudhead: nice E
Elayne: http://www.alternativesjournal.net/volume1/number2/sullhtml.htm - "Iran also expressed sympathy for what happened in the US on 9-11."
