  3. The Ministry of Silly Walks Is Now a Video Game and I Can’t Stop Playing It

    Looks like I'm not getting anything else done today. 

    Stop what you're doing. Grab your phone. Download The Ministry of Silly Walks. That's right, one of the best Monty Python sketches of all time is now a timesucking mobile sidescroller. Play as John Cleese (who voices the game!) and silly walk your way over and under obstacles to collect coins.

    Once More With Feeling

    Comic books, science-fiction dystopias, and B-movies of the 1960s are not obvious subjects for Broadway musicals, but geek culture and the Great White Way have intersected with surprising frequency throughout the years.

  5. Game of Thrones Throws A Delightful Monty Python Reference Into Some Valyrian Dialogue

    I'm Ghiscari. Why do you think I have this outrageous accent, you silly queen?

At least the Jurassic Park one might get made if enough people vote for it (VOTE FOR IT). Sadly, LEGO's Monty Python line is likely to exist only in the mind of Adam Monostori, aka Rifiröfi. Now go away, or I shall taunt you a second time!
