Cleese chat by Helen on 19 November 2004 10:35pm

He answered two of my questions. How sweet. there was lots of cuss words, silliness and general merriment.

It was very very funny....The chatter was hysterical. Very funny bits, indeed!

Any news of the lemurs?

Ah yes, I went to that too.. I was 'YouKnow', and I see from the other post you were 'Wingtip' :D Were any other Palinites there? If so did you ask any questions/get any answers? I got one funny answer to a question about Michael's cats :D

What were your questions / his answers?? :D
Re: Cleese chat by Helen on 20 November 2004 3:42pm
not verbatim, but you get the idea:

I asked him if he really had a ranch, and if I so then I really loved him.
He answered: I have a video of it on my website and you'll love it even more than you love me.

Then I asked if he thought Bush was a moron. (no really, what am I trying to say?) (teehee)

he was very polite about this answer and he used the word "dangerous." (I need a copy of the transcript)(dammit!)

Cleese rules. I also told him he could hire me to muck his horse stalls. I can muck 12 box stalls in two hours or less (in my hey day anyway).
Then someone asked me how did I learn to muck like that, etc and the silliness ensued.

It was great. Everyone was so funny and Cleesey was so gracious and witty.

he typed the Queen Mother of all curse words, and of course a bunch of us chatters just picked that up and ran away with it.

Sounds like fun! If only it wasn't on so early in the morning in my neck of the woods. Did you have to be a proper member (ie paid) of his site to join in?

No, much to the delight of my starving artist heart, you did not have to pay to partake.

Gawd, I bounced three checks this week....

Thats what I loved about it too - 'Twas free!

My question:
"John, Do you know the names of Michael Palin's cats?"

His reply:
"No sorry, I don't know the names of Michael's cats.... But thats OK, because he doesn't know the names of all my wives!"

Hmm and apparently his favourite colour is 'Grizzly bear green' :D
Anyway the chat was great fun, I'm glad I got time to go, even though I was only there for about the last 30 mins (He overran a little)
