I see no comments but I know I'm not going to be, well, you know...

i cannot wait to see your film, Dave; well... not your film "Dave" but your FILM, dave.. I love John Cleese,, I am old enough to have 'observed' Monty Python from a bean bag chair in the early 70s.. and, baithebai, you two should have kissed instead of just touching heads
keep up the good work,, love, mom

Visiting John Cleese's website convinced me to skip your movie. I've voted with my feet.

Visiting John Cleese's website convinced me to skip your movie. I've voted with my feet.

Visiting John Cleese's website convinced Joe to skip your movie. Joe's voted with his feet.

MeganBNL: You sure? 'Cause I didn't get that at all...

Yikes, am foist. John Cleese! Fawlty Towers - one of the best. Would love to hear one of their (not our) conversations!

I have to wonder about Joe voting with his FEET, though. By chance, is Joe a Florida voter?

I love the way John Cleese got around the fact that some look-alike/impersonator took www.johncleese.com from him. Apparently instead of suing the guy for the domain name and raising all kinds of legal heck, he just named his site www.thejohncleese.com.

Yes, he is THE one and only, inimitable John Cleese. Classy!

I have a serious question. We all know that THE John Cleese is a very tall individual, especially for someone from the UK, where they don't put HEC (Height Enhancing Chemicals, such as Flouride) in the water supply.

We also know that Dave has never consumed any HEC, as he only drinks beer.

Therefore, Dave should be much shorter than John (who is exceptionally tall), yet somehow...this picture makes them appear to be of very similar height.

My question, then, is...

Is Dave standing on a box of Water Enhancing Flouride Pellets (Consumer Grade), or is John bending at the knees...similar to the way a dead parrot might?

the only thing i can figure out is joe h was either not born during monty python OR .. well... some folks just don't get it

joe: you voted 3 times with your feet. does that mean you have 3 feet?

inquiring minds want to know.

Joe voted and posted with his feet, all three of them.

I love John Cleese. He is the second reason I will go to see the movie. That is a huge compliment, Dave, becasue the last movie that I paid nearly ten bucks to see was LOTR, Return of the King.

BASIL!!!!!!!!!!!
Man, so many times that face has filled my TV.

Apparently Joe doesn't have a sense of humor. Having seen all the debates (pity me, please), I thought that joke on www.thejohncleese.com was dead on.

two legends in the same photo.. could life get better? oh yes.. my computer could work properly .. dang it .. at least i can get in here

1. I did not realize that Cleese was that old (shows my age, eh.)
2. Why do you look like a happy Dracula?

HOLY COW!!! What is that growing out of the side of John Cleese's Head?!?!?$?#?#?

Tout le bulge, Josh!

yeah, that chick would be cute if she could solve that stubble problem...

Hey! Wait! They're Right!

Something is wrong here...that's NOT DAVE! That's a Vampire posing as dave! Look at those fangs!

That IS Dave. Look at the shirt.

So, I log on to the blog, and what fills my monitor, but a photo of Dave and John Cleese looking for all the world like a couple celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary at Disney World. John is giving the camera such a coy look.

So Dave, how long do you plan on remaining welded at the head and shoulder to Mr. Cleese?

The happy couple...and that same shirt. It's like the third wheel.

*eyes tearing up*

Such an adorable couple!

Dave...what's this "coming soon" %#@& on your movie trailer link to the "official movie website"? We want a trailer now or we're voting with our feet

Filming with John Cleese
Dave, beware the Knights of Nee
No fluoride for Dave

Thank you

John Cleese is the rarely liked comedian combination of Elderly Man and Man With A Very English Accent.

Plus his name is John.

Don't worry about me.. I just want to try something

this is not a link

ok.. now i'm not sure if I screwed up the html or it was supposed to do something else.. let's try this
this is not a link either

well what about this

if that doesn't do what I think it will, I might just quit my day job

aahhh.. ok.. not what I thought but definitely something completely different..

ba da bump

Ooooooh it's John Cleese! Now I definitely want to see the movie (not that I didn't want to before).
:( But they probably won't bring it here, the way I know it.

WTF? Did Gerald McRaney get a hair transplant?

did he teach you how to defend yourself using ripe fruit?

Queensbee - I think you mean self-defence against people who attack you with fruit.

*Releases the tiger*

Wow... this is my first time posting a comment on the blog... even though I read it a lot... *sniffs* I'm growing up! Ok, deep breath. Deeeeeep breath. But I just couldn't resist, after all, if I can't contribute when the subject is monty python & john cleese than what good am I? Throw dave into the mix and you've got a humor-lover's paradise.

Does anybody else remember the episode of fawlty towers with the Germans? I'm not sure I've ever laughed at anything so hard in my life.

When are you going to teach us to use poin-ted sticks?

Yay! I love John Cleese.

That is all I have to add at this time. Thank you for coming. There are refreshments in the back and I will stick around to answer any questions you may have and to sign autographs.

Good Night.

why is it that if you say something anti-democrat, people tend to stick around and argue, you know, trying to make an actual point, or convince people of the rightness of their point of view and stuff....but if you say anything anti-republican, they .... leave?

because, judi, republicans know that one cannot carry on a rational, logical discussion with a liberal, or democrat (redundant, I know).

Dave Barry has been to purt-near (trans. = "almost") every country on Earth. He has spoken to many of the most powerful and influential human-type people alive. He has set things on fire and gotten paid for it. He has done purt-near (that's fun to say) everything a person could want to do.

But John Cleese has kissed Lucy Liu.

That's power.

Okay, now I'm all green with envy and stuff.
Now I must go check out John Cleese's web page and see if I might find some way to send him lacivious email ...

Why did Joe voted with his feet, he has no hands?

I don't think I could vote with my feet, because first they are feet, and second I can't use them like hands, but I know monkeys can, so maybe Joe is a monkey, or a Bigfoot!

Welcome, Trankster!

Judi ... A little Democrat humor (at the expense of Republicans)

This little old lady calls 911. When the operator answers she yells, "Help, send the police to my house right away! There's a damn Democrat on my front porch and he's playing with himself."

"What?" the operator exclaimed. "I said there is a damn Democrat on my front porch playing with himself and he's weird; I don't know him and I'm afraid! Please send the police!" the little old lady repeated.

"Well, now, how do you know he's a Democrat?"

"Because, you damn fool, if it was a Republican, he'd be screwing somebody!"

Thank you ... I'll be here all week.

Ha ha!

Har!

And now for something completely different....

A woman in a hot air balloon realized she was lost. She lowered her altitude and spotted a man in a boat below. She shouted to him, "Excuse me, can you help me? I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago, but I don't know where I am."

The man consulted his portable GPS and replied, "You're in a hot air balloon, approximately 30 feet above a ground elevation of 2346 feet above sea level. You are at 31 degrees, 14.97 minutes north latitude and 100
degrees, 49.09 minutes west longitude.

She rolled her eyes and said, "You must be a Republican."

"I am," replied the man. "How did you know?"

"Well," answered the balloonist, "everything you told me is technically correct, but I have no idea what to do with your information, and I'm still lost. Frankly, you've not been much help to me."

The man smiled and responded, "You must be a Democrat."

"I am," replied the balloonist. "How did you know?"

"Well," said the man, "you don't know where you are or where you're going. You've risen to where you are, due to a large quantity of hot air. You made a promise that you have no idea how to keep, and you expect me to solve your problem. You're in exactly the same position you were in before we met but, somehow, now it's my fault."

Marvin
Of course it's his fault. He's a man. It's always the mans fault.

heard that joke with a marketing and an engineer/IT guy...

Odd that a photo of Dave with John Cleese appears so soon after somone mentioned Spam in another thread. Yay! =D

Good one, Marvin.

I'm a democrat to my core, but when something is funny, it's funny ... see below:

You're walking down a deserted street with your wife and two small children. Suddenly, a dangerous looking man with a huge knife comes around the corner, locks eyes with you, screams obscenities, raises the knife, and charges. You are carrying a Glock .40, and you are an expert shot. You have mere seconds before he reaches you and your family. What do you do?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Democrat's Answer:

Well, that's not enough information to answer the question! Does the man look poor or oppressed? Have I ever done anything to him that would inspire him to attack? Could we run away? What does my wife think? What about the kids? Could I possibly swing the gun like a club and knock the knife out of his hand? What does the law say about this situation? Does the Glock have appropriate safety built into it? Why am I carrying a loaded gun anyway, and what kind of message does this send to society and to my children? Is it possible he'd be happy with killing just me, and not my family? Does he definitely want to kill me, or would he be content just to wound me? If I were to grab his knees and hold on, could my family get away while he was stabbing me? Should I call 9-1-1? Why is this street so deserted? We need to raise taxes, have a paint-and-weed day and make this a happier, healthier street that would discourage such behavior. This is all so confusing! I need to debate this with some friends for a few days and try to come to a consensus.

Republican's Answer:

BANG!

Southern Republican's Answer:

BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG!...click....(sounds of reloading).
BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG! BANG!...click Child: "Nice grouping, Daddy! Were those the Winchester Silver Tips I gave you for your birthday??"

Mr. Chuckletrousers meets Mr. Teabag.

This is beginning to sound like some sort of Spanish Inquisition

I wasn't expecting a Spanish Inquisition.

Ummm - Question about the G2G movie and website.

They are already selling pre-order DVDs. Does that mean that it won't make it to the theater?


That's OK, jackiam .. no one ever does. ;)

Owwww!

I came in here for an argument, not getting hit over the head lessons.

Lemon curry?

Funny. I came in here to poop.

I must be sleepwalking again. Glad the Spanish Inquisition snapped me out of it. That could've been messy.

Joshkr - African limericks or European limericks?

Joshkr - No, wait..

Aaahh
hhhh
hhh
hh
h

*Neh*

Zaphod - what's the difference between African limericks and European limericks? Is it like this?:

African
Sahara Desert:
Nomads roam and camels walk
Dang, it is so hot

European
Scandinavia:
Vikings roam and the Lapps walk
Dang, it is so cold

Me too
Joshkaru
The Fish is actually a Dead Parrot
Whoda thunk that? (Prolly Bangi)


That was not a Haiku

Joshkr - I am a Lumberjack and I'm OK....

Rachel - That would be the difference between an African haiku and a European haiku. But what do I know? I have metrophobia.

Hey, I'm a Canadian! Here's a Canadian limerick:

I was riding a moose on the Shield
And in stupidity did not yield
Some mounties went by
And a herd of black flies
Ate me and moose there in the field.

Also, it must be Friday afternoon. Yes, I realize that my previous post contained "haikus", not "limericks".

So lash me with a wet noodle.

Booger.

It's a good thing I didn't mention the dirty fork.

took the which Monty Python Sketch quiz and as I expected......I was the Spanish Inquisition....but nobody else expected that..

Or me.

Entertainment at a recent function was "The Montana Lumberjack and Ballet Company."

And I'm OK

I Sleep all night and I work all day.

I find this photograph highly unfair for multiple reasons.

1. I want to meet John Cleese! Why does Dave Barry get to meet him?
2. I want to meet Dave Barry! Why does John Cleese get to meet him?
3. I want to see this movie NOW! So hurry up and finish it.

Ah! Two of my favorite funny-men on crap-cam!

WooHoo! I'm the dead parrot sketch.

Hey, I am a dead parrot too...

Beautiful plumage

Please, let us be fair to the man whose movie we are ostensibly discussing and cease dropping Mony Python catchphrases. How about a couple of Barryisms?

I'll start:

Giant Radioactive Zucchini.

I am a democratic doggie,
I love to trot on down the street.
I am a democratic doggie,
I pee on every fireplug that I meet!

I am a democratic doggie,
I want a chicken in every pot.
I am a democratic doggie,
I want what I have not got!

I am so glad there is a humourous movie about guys. They have always looked silly to me- it's those funny looking winkies they have. Its good to be a girl. We are less ridiculous looking.

Ya want a Barryism? Ok, Mango poop! Yes! You heard me! An oldie but goodie! My husband courted me with those very words (don't ask!)

Dave Barry, John Cleese, at last I can die happy (but not before the movie)!

My mother finally told me after all of these years just before she passed away for the last time. Yes, yes, I was not her only first child from her first litter. I had a twin brother that was born years later because the doctors didn't know that there was another one in the woo-mub. I searched the world over looking for my twin younger brother! Wal-ah! A picture appeared in the Rag! Could that be, yes, could that be my twin? The hair was the same, (dish water blond), the eyes were the same, (watery blue), the bass lips were the same, the didamus, (front teeth), was the same, and yes, yes, the blue shirt was the same. (Our "familly colors") We are even the same height!! Can you beat that! Dang! I never got to meet John Cleese.
