The python

In 1968 John Cleese, the well known mem­ber of Monty Python, did a tv show cal­led How to irri­tate people. There’s no need to say that he is a spe­cia­list, when it comes to com­bi­ning the irri­ta­tion of people with humour.
In 2008 Monty Python appeared in the inter­net per­so­nally for, well I don’t really know what for. But they are there. And they irri­tate and amuse as if not­hing had hap­pened in the last 40 years. How inte­res­ting to see there still so much room for them to act like that. John Cleese seems to be the most active one of them, having an own blog and an own twit­ter account.

And there he says things like this:


‘Ha!’ means you know some­thing. Some­thing of inte­rest. Some­thing of import­ance? Some­thing we need to know? Defi­ni­tely some­thing he’s hiding from his fol­lo­wers.

You see how easy it is to irri­tate people: Just hide some infor­ma­tion from someone and show wit­hin a short utter­ance that there is some kind of infor­ma­tion he might be inte­res­ted in. That he could even­tually be in need of. Even if he doesn’t have a tiny clue what that kind of infor­ma­tion that could be.

John keeps that infor­ma­tion for about 7 hours. And 7 hours in twit­ter are a life­time. You can drive with your car from Lon­don to Paris in 7 hours.

Finally he comes back and…

enjoys keeping his secret.

You think I just made that up? Have a look:
