Video of the Week: The Parrot Sketch

This video is for my Mom. This was the very first Monty Python sketch she ever saw and by the time it was over she was laughing so hard she was crying.  (It was John Cleese smacking that bird on the bottom of his shoe that was the kicker.) Whenever she was feeling down all I had to do was pull out this sketch and whatever was bothering her faded to the background. Whenever I’m missing her, as I am today on the eve of the second anniversary of her passing, I watch this and laugh until I cry.
