Q: What is "Semprini," anyway?
A: According to Pythonline sources, Semprini was sort of a UK version of Liberace (an annoying entertainer then, an Italian orchestra leader making easy-listening music in the Mantovani mould) whose name was interjected by Graham Chapman as a non-sequitur into boring conversation. Bad music is always a dirty word. The original script read "biscuit-barrel" in the same spot, which is more obviously a naughty word and not nearly as funny. In the show a Gumby can be seen to yell "SEMPRINI!" while still mouthing "biscuit-barrel."

This is taken from PythoNET. I've heard this explination elsewhere as well, though.

A made up word like "splunge".

SPLUNGE!! Which means neither yes or no.


Sorry . . . the old days came drifting back to me and I felt like saying that.
