Monty Python criticism? by debbunny on 29 May 2004 1:40am
I wish I could find some serious criticism of Mony Python. For instance, what does the Lumberjack song really mean? Is it a warning to professionals not to reveal too much information about their personal lives? Is it a statement about the absurdity of equating certain professions (lumberjacking) with masculinity? Is it a pro-transsexual diatribe? Is it a weatherman's musings on his restricted existence? Or, is it a big of silliness?

"Monty Python, Shakespeare, and English Renaissance drama" by Darl Larsen
(Jefferson, NC; McFarland & Co; 2003) ISBN: 0786415045

From his dissertation " 'Its ...' Shakespeare" (Northern Illinois U, 2000):
This dissertation examines the relationship between the dramatists of the English Renaissance, especially Shakespeare, but including Jonson, Dekker and Monty Python. The similarities between such seemingly disparate writers/performers include stage practices, employment of troupe members, casting or writing to type, objects, methods and types of satire, the uses and abuses of history for dramatic purposes, the employment of cross-dressing, and, in the specific case of Shakespeare and Monty Python, the cultural emblems both have become as versions of an English National Poet.

Or, if that's too ponderously academic, try:
"Finland" by Meichun Zhong (Milwaukee, WI; G.Stevens; 2001) ISBN: 0836823311


"Llamas" by Dorothy Hinshaw Patent
(Minneapolis, MN; Lerner Publications; 2002) ISBN: 0822500671

Well, if you adhere to Hegelian philosophy, MPFC is merely an a priori adjunct of non-naturalistic ethics. However, according to Kant via the categorical imperative, MPFC exists only in the imagination. If you're a Marxist, they're simply offside.
