Monty Python

Sorry if this has been done before but monty python really is a timeless classic.

"Monty Python's Spamalot," a musical inspired by the 1975 film "Monty Python and the Holy Grail." hit Broadway on March 17, written by Eric Idle,

So which is your favourite comedy sketch performed performed on the show Monty pythons flying circus.

My top three as i couldn't really choose are:

The Lumberjack song
The dead parrot sketch
the clip about self defence, with the attacker with a bannana ( never been able to do unarmed combat without thinking of this sketch)

so what is yours?????
I would have to say the one with the mouse organ,

Basically it starts off as a concert pianist, or so you think ,
they state he is about to play the mouse organ with mice that squeak in pitch to a musical note, and has arranged them on the organ, and by gentle tapping them they squeak.
Then the pianist pulls out two wooden mallets and preceeds to play 3 blind mice, while mashing the hell out the keyboard!

Funny as hell
The basics of camoflauge;
