Posted: November 21, 2013 at 11:55 am 1 Comment »

The surviving members of Monthy Python are set to reunite for a stage show, with the official press conference being held later today. The group of septuagenarians have unsurprisingly caused quite a stir with the news and social media is subsequently buzzing.

Since Tuesday, when the news was first reported, people have taken to social networks to discuss their favourite Monty Python sketches. Using Cision Social Media, we’ve been able to produce the top five most mentioned. Think social media is wrong? Let us know in the comments below.

In reverse order:

5. The Lumberjack song

Laura @ElleEmSee tweeted: ‘Anyone would be a fool to pass up seeing The Lumberjack Song performed live’.


4. The Ministry of Silly Walks

Sheila Ray Wunder @SRWunder tweeted: ‘”Mom…so many people at my school don’t know what the Ministry of Silly Walks is. It’s sad.”’


3. The Spanish Inquisition

Jamie Kim Williams @Fun_Sized27 tweeted: ‘No one expects the Spanish Inquisition!’



2. The Dead Parrot Sketch

Brian Rhind @rhindbrian88 tweeted: ‘Never really got Monty Python apart from the dead parrot sketch that’s funny.’
