MP gets me in trouble with my mother-in-law by canaveralgumby on 5 May 2003 5:28am
 
Even though I am the webmistress of the MPUAP, and I'm SUPPOSED to be a source of info *HA HA HA HA*, I saw the last installment of "Sahara" just yesterday (5/3). Had no idea what was coming on. I'm the only one left, huh?

So, my mother-in-law, 82 yrs. old, NO sense of humor, who thinks everyone who is not Catholic is godless and condemned, is visiting us. She never allowed my husband to watch Python because they showed breasts...

Her granddaughter, my niece, and I discussed Python one day. My niece said her favorite Python movie is "Life of Brian." I said, "ME TOO!" And then I advised my niece NEVER to let Grandma see that movie, she will be VERY upset.

So do I follow my own advice? NOOOOOOO! Well, I didn't know what was coming! I'm recording part 4 of "Sahara," and Michael visits the site in Tunisia where they filmed LoB, and they actually start showing the cricifixion scene. Lots of it! And Michael quips, "Not everyone gets to revisit the site of their crucifixion! Ha, ha!" (which was very funny and clever, I thought), and my mother-in-law, well, she's not happy.

And that MAKES ME happy! 'Cause I'm a little s**t! She says, "What's funny about that? That's awful. Just awful. Why do they have to do that?" This while my husband and I start singing and whistling "...Bright Side..." with aplomb.

It's all my fault! I'm evil! BWAHAHA! ...Sorry. Just had to vent.

I loved how Michael tied in his Sahara visit to scenes shot in LOB...it was really neat to see all that!

Kinda like the Special Edition Holy Grail that has Terry J and Michael visiting the sites.

An extra bit of fun for Michael fans who also happen to be Python fans. :O) I thought it was quite touching when he was watching LOB in his room.

It was the bit in Sahara ,showing Michael as Pontius Pilate that got my 12 year old wanting to see Michael Palin and the Pythons and well thats how she become a Python/Palin fan. She still goes around the house saying Wome is your fwiend.

Well done, Cori! Encore! What would she think of Mr. Creosote? Or Cardinal Ximinez? She might just laugh, who knows? Silliness breaks down all sorts of walls...
"His Majesty is Like a Dose of Clap" is the quote of the day....
but, anyway....

I can totally relate to your story Cori..Im married into a very large Catholic family...don't get me wrong...nothing against catholics, but when Pete's oldest sister visits...Sister Caroline the Jehosophite nun...well let's just say Im rather careful about what's on the TV...DEFINATELY no Life of Brian!!

Well my mum is a devout Muslim and I got all the Python films as a set for my birthday so I decided to have Monty Python marathon...well my mum decided to watch bits of LofB with me and...well I forgot that their was full frontal nudity in the bit with "He's not the messiah...he's a very naughty boy!" She was NOT happy!

Cori, what does your mother in law feel about the Catholic family in TMofL?
