Sad overnight news with the death of Terry Jones being announced. He was part of Monty Python, a ground breaking comedic group from the 1960s and 1970s whose movies are as outlandishly funny now as they were when they were released 40 years ago.
Their movies were very clever with devastating critiques of social norms. And left wingers and class politics were fair game. Like this scene from Monty Python and the Holy Grail.
Or this scene from Life of Brian.
Their humour at times cut right to the edge of what could be considered to be acceptable.
I think that humour may have peaked with their efforts. Thankfully because of the power of digital media their efforts will live on.
