The thing about SBN's posting platform is that a post requires 150 words. And no, typing "filler" over and over again, or any other word over again, doesn't count (and if you do that in a fan post it'll get your FP deleted and earn you a note saying "try again").

So, that means this off topic catch all post has to have words in it. I thought about format - should I have a question for y'all to answer as a starting point every time? Some sort of interesting fact? I don't know. So this time, I'll start off with something that we were talking about among ourselves earlier: Comedy, specifically Monty Python.

My three biggest comedy influences as a kid were Steve Martin, David Letterman, and Monty Python. My friends and I used to videotape Python episodes and watch them over and over again, to the point where I have almost every sketch memorized to this day. My all time favorite sketch is probably this one:

That there, friends, is pretty much the perfect comedy sketch.

What about you? What sorts of comedy do you like?
