I'm a huge fan of the tiny ads in general, and I can tell where a lot came from. I love the MP quotes :D
They make me laugh :)
I have a thread in the meaningless drivel forum about how much I like them :)
I was a teenager in 1975 or so, when late one night, after Don Kirshner's Rock Concert, there came on this weird thing:: Monty Python's Flying Circus, at 1AM on Saturday nights... I didn't watch much tv then, and none now, but I made sure I saw that as often as I could!
