Subject: Los Angeles #70 - Monty P meets South Park

Put a groom and his "best" man together for a few idle moments early on wedding day when no one else is around within earshot, and what do you get? You get a mashup of Monty Python and South Park, taking two separate pieces and slamming them together to make something better.

Sometimes, 1+1 = 3, especially when you're taking the best of British and American humor.

Step 1 - Take some elements from this classic "French taunting" scene in Monty Python and the Holy Grail (1975). The relevant bit runs between 2:20 and 2:43 but the whole scene works well if you have the time and inclination.

Step 2 - Add a much more animated (and less subtle) Terrance and Phillip from their potty-mouth "Unclef#%$er" scene in the more current South Park: Bigger Longer & Uncut (1999). The relevant bit starts 0:25 in, but it is ALL top-shelf, classy, high-brow material.

Step 3 - Combine and stir artfully with some tender loving care, and yowza wowza, you get the end result as exchanged between George Johnson and Bob Boguslavski in their wedding finery before all the action of the day started up on the boat.

What else would some groom do on his wedding day after all when there was nothing else going on? Clearly, we were two sick Canuckistanis messin' around and having some fun, eh?

I think Kenny Dixon Jr. (aka Moodymann) said it best (at 3:50 for a few seconds) in this deep house number called Doin' Ya Thang by Oliver $ released in April 2011.

Keep it simple folks, with just two categories, as the man said there. It makes for much easier navigation in life, and filtering stuff. Therein lies some real wisdom they will never teach you in skool, even if you're just some single guy hitting weddings all over the place.
