what do you all make of this? by pollyanna199 on 7 May 2005 3:51am
 
This was an article apparently reported in the Sun.

That's really strange--if not totally false--because this article aside, it was agreed that Idle sought out --and got--approval from all the other Pythons (aside from Graham considerign the circumstances)

Plus, why bash a show when you make royalties off it?

Well it is only The Sun, though when I looked at the article I got the impression that the "quotes" might have been said by Jones in jest, and are just being misrepresented. Hard to tell really but since Jones is the medieval fan, amongst the Pythons, I would be surprised if he of all people disliked the idea. In my mind, its the article, not the show, thats full of air.

I couldn't open link either but without reading the item I would say that the Sun is the main tabloid which tends to make up its own stories from the smallest rumour and for me anything they print must be taken with a degree of doubt over its accuracy of fact. Also as julwis says, perhaps Jones was behaving pythonish in his quotes which may also have been misquoted.

When I read it I didn't believe it. He's a Python and said those things when attending a Pythonic event, so I doubt anything he said that day was meant to be taken seriously. Also it comes from The Sun, say no more.

The Holy Grail is pointless and full of air?? That's the whole idea, that's what makes it so funny.

If you can't open the link you need to copy and paste it into your address bar. Highly recommended as there's a rather amusing photo of Jonesy included.

JessPix is right, copy the whole link and paste it into the address bar. Whenever I include URLs with commas, the links always get cut off at the comma. Its just a formatting bug.

From The Sun. No other comment.
