I've always gone with the assumption that I'm the only one who is real, the rest of bro-existence is just a figment of my imagination. Which means the the only time anyone else is real is when they're interacting with me. I call it "The philosophy of total egotism" :P
Oh yeah, I used to rent Monty Python all the time on video as a kid. As for Black Adder, I only found out about that when they had a marathon of all the seasons on this tv channel I used to watch. Definitely fueled my own sense of humor! :D You were in New Orleans?! Coolies, that's about a 2 hour drive from where I live. Been awhile since I went there last, maybe 2 and a half years, and that was just to use the airport. ^_^ I hope you had fun, they have a lot of cool historic areas to see there if you like that kind of thing anyways. ^_^
Oh believe me, I'm quite familiar with old comedies. Well, most of them anyway, I've never heard of Fry and Laurie since most of the only English shows me got were Monty Python and the Black Adder series. I do remember Hugh Laurie being one of the characters from Black Adder though..I think it was the "Goes Forth" part of the series unless I'm mistaken.
