Monty Python at CNN

Email Print

Following yesterday’s plane crash at San Francisco, both CNN and an FBI official continued to remind us that “terrorism” was not suspected. This reminds me, once again, of the “News for Parrots” segment from “Monty Python”: “Here is the news for parrots. No parrots were involved in an accident on the M1 today, when a lorry carrying high octane fuel was in collision with a bollard . . . that is a bollard and not a parrot. A spokesman for parrots said he was glad no parrots were involved.”

CNN did not inform us whether Amelia Earhart might have been piloting the plane. Is Wolf Blitzer withholding that information? Enquiring minds want to know!
