Ich bin ein Holzfäller und fühl mich stark

Could there be anything funnier than Monty Python‘s brand of irreverent comedy ? Yes – it’s the Python’s in German ! The Python’s made two special episodes for German TV in 1971-72. You can find them here (via Marginal Revolution).

The famous lumberjack song in German:

The original song in English. Also, the Germany-Greece philosopher’s football match – one of the more hilarious skits that doesn’t get as much coverage as parrot, silly walks or arguements.

Previous Python post here (also mentioned briefly here, here and here).

  1. Ah! What a way to start friday.. now I have the “I am the lumberjack..” stuck in my head. My friends and I can do the whole ‘holy grail’ movie.. infact a lot of lunch sessions have been just that.

  2. @Sakshi: Wow – you should record it and put it up on youtube as a fan offering. So what’s your favorite Holy Grail scene(s) ? I love the ones with French guards ..“I fart in your general direction! Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries!”

  3. My favorite also includes – the witch scene – ‘she turned me into a newt” “A newt?” “I got better” 🙂
    the black knight fight “Oh. Oh, I see. Running away, eh? You yellow bastards! Come back here and take what’s coming to you. I’ll bite your legs off!”
    Robin’s minsteral song – “When danger reared its ugly head, he bravely turned his tail and fled. ”
    Or the one that I use most – the god conversation, “Every time I try to talk to someone it’s “sorry this” and “forgive me that” and “I’m not worthy”… ”
    And I can go on..

  5. Ey ki saar?! We have this in common too? How are you on Spike Milligan, then?

    How come none of you mentioned the hilarious credits for The Holy Grail?

  6. @JAP: I thought it was something about the Bong genes – the love of PGW, DNA, Pythons et al. 🙂

    Sadly, I have not had much exposure to Spike Milligan – should correct that.

    @JAP/Vivek: Yeah those are pretty hilarious too.

    Actually it was unfair to ask about favorite scenes in Holy Grail – its so totally packed with memorable stuff.
