Forty Five Years Ago Today

A mere 148 days after the troupe formed, the first episode of Monty Python’s Flying Circus airs on BBC One!

This is a historic day for Canadians everywhere as it was the Monty Python Comedy Troupe that first exposed the world to the inner mind of a Canadian lumberjack! 😉

It may not have been the image Canadians wanted to project, but at least the world knew that there were Canadian lumberjacks after its release! (Better to have a message with some impurity than to fade into obscurity.)
