Humour: Monty Python’s soccer match of Philosophers


I am done reading a book by Levi Strauss titled “History of Political Philosophy” and the first thing that came to my mind was this video of “Monty Python’s Flying Circus” with a World Cup of Philosophers playing soccer:

A Philosopher’s soccer match – Monty Python

Here’s a brief of what is Monty Python for those of you who are clueless about them:

The television series, broadcast by the BBC from 1969 to 1974, was conceived, written and performed by Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, and Michael Palin. Loosely structured as a sketch show but with an innovative stream-of-consciousness approach (aided by Terry Gilliam’s animations), it pushed the boundaries of what was then considered acceptable, both in terms of style and content.

The group’s influence on comedy has often been compared to The Beatles‘ influence on music.[1][2] A self-contained comedy team responsible for both writing and performing their work, they changed the way performers entertained audiences. The Pythons’ creative control allowed them to experiment with form and content, discarding the established rules of television comedy. Their influence on British comedy of all kinds has been apparent for many years, while in America it has coloured the work of many cult performers from the early editions of Saturday Night Live through to more recent absurdist trends in television comedy. ‘Pythonesque’ has entered the English lexicon as a result.(SOURCE: WIKIPEDIA)

Iran is a menace to Humanity. Period.


After calm returned to Egypt and Tunez I decided to review history and went back to look the April, 2009  videos of the Conference on Racism that was held in Geneva, Switzerland.

Here’s the video of the speech of Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad,

Iran’s government is really a dangerous menace for the peace and stability of the world. Their philosophical fundamentals are founded on hate, historicism, military agression, backwardness, repression of individual rights and irrationality. There is no way a government can think of “negotiations” or “peaceful talkings” with a country like that; you have to really be against Reason and Humanity to support a peaceful approach to those assasins,

Obama in a video claiming that Iran is not a threat

Iran is a world menace and they are willing to eliminate anyone who opposes their religious destiny and political goals. Iran is a menace that will compromise humanity & peace; why is it that people decides to blind themselves of evident acts of hate? I just don’t get people…
