The python

In 1968 John Clee­se, the well known mem­ber of Mon­ty Python, did a tv show cal­led How to irri­ta­te peop­le. There’s no need to say that he is a spe­cia­list, when it comes to com­bi­ning the irri­ta­ti­on of peop­le with humour.
In 2008 Mon­ty Python appeared in the inter­net per­so­nal­ly for, well I don’t real­ly know what for. But they are the­re. And they irri­ta­te and amu­se as if not­hing had hap­pen­ed in the last 40 years. How inte­res­ting to see the­re still so much room for them to act like that. John Clee­se seems to be the most active one of them, having an own blog and an own twit­ter account.

And the­re he says things like this:


Ha!’ means you know some­thing. Some­thing of inte­rest. Some­thing of impor­t­an­ce? Some­thing we need to know? Defi­ni­te­ly some­thing he’s hiding from his fol­lo­wers.

You see how easy it is to irri­ta­te peop­le: Just hide some infor­ma­ti­on from someo­ne and show wit­hin a short utter­an­ce that the­re is some kind of infor­ma­ti­on he might be inte­rested in. That he could even­tual­ly be in need of. Even if he doesn’t have a tiny clue what that kind of infor­ma­ti­on that could be.

John keeps that infor­ma­ti­on for about 7 hours. And 7 hours in twit­ter are a life­time. You can dri­ve with your car from Lon­don to Paris in 7 hours.

Final­ly he comes back and…

enjoys kee­ping his secret.

You think I just made that up? Have a look:
