It's just a flesh wound...

There are certain things in this world that have a universal appeal. Monty Python is one of them. I firmly believe that almost everything can be related in one way or another to something Monty Python did.*

Recently, an older British couple who were touring the great Northern California coast came by the shop (actually, my wife brought them over because they needed a little help finding lodging for the night). In the course of helping them, the wife mentioned that the husband twisted his ankle earlier in the day and that it was possibly broken. The husband was walking around with nary a limp, but said it did hurt.

When they were talking about the possible broken ankle, I couldn't help flash to a scene from Monty Python and the Holy Grail. I think I started laughing to myself and if I had been drinking a soda, a dribble probably would have emanated from my nasal passages. I made the comment that "it's just a flesh wound." They immediately "got it" and she replied, "well, we are British."

I hope they're okay.

* In addition to being able to relate almost anything to Monty Python, other relatable things are So I Married an Axe Murderer (We've got a piper down!) and the comedian Brian Regan (Take Luck!).
