  Always look on the bright side of life

Monty Python has established an official channel on YouTube. My long held, yet guilty pleasure, of getting what used to be my 2AM PBS Monty Python fix is now at an end. This song, in particular, was embedded in my conciousness, growing up. John D'bella of WMMR, would play it to close out his morning show almost every day. It was such a toe-tapping embrace of British pluck and existentialism! I've read that it has become a regular anthem at certain ball games.

I think the movie it came with ("Life of Brian") did more to combat any tendencies I might have had towards religious fundamentalism than any other source, and I can still quote whole scenes from memory. I hope more folks get a chance to see that in its entirety before the next election.

Until then... "Life's a laugh, and death's a joke, it's true. You see it's all a show, keep them laughing as you go, just remember that the last laugh is on you, aaaaaannnnnndddd...."
