The one on the left is Graham Chapman (may he rest in peace), and the one on the right is John Cleese, both from Monty Python's Flying Circus. The question is. are you too old or too young to know that?

LOL! OK, now I know who they are! I never watched Flying Circus, but I loved their movies (Life of Brian, Holy Grail, etc.)....didn't recognize them in that photo. As for my age, let's just say that when "And Now For Something Completely Different" was released, I wasn't born yet.

Life of Brian was just wonderful...so funny (and profound) in places, it's hard to fault.
Notice I was able to post without plugging? The drugs are definitely working...

Ah! As for me, when The Holy Grail came out, it played as a double feature (yes, Virginia, theaters used to give you two movies for one price) with Mel Brooks' The Twelve Chairs (not a classic, but still very funny) and my buddies and I, who were all college age at the time, went to see it at least a dozen times. Even after all those viewings, all I had to do was look at Patsy, Arthur's coconut clapping squire, and it would crack me up.

And now for some Shameless Promotion. Here is the beginning of a review from Amazon UK, Yes, even in the home of Monty Python, they love Boomerang:


5.0 out of 5 stars Laughed like a drain..., 18 Jun 2009
By Simon Million - See all my reviews
I laughed like a drain reading Boomerang. This is a superb globe-trotting jet-setting farce that had me turning pages and staying up far too late, skipping work and finding hiding places in which I could read undisturbed.

If anyone else (ooh, look! a Reader!) happens across this thread, feel free to purchase our books. You will be doing a public service and improving your own life immeasurably. In what ways I cannot say. You'll have to find out for yourself.

Doesn't that sound exciting?

It's nice to have a place to spout off all the things you think are great about your book without being called a horse's ass. I'm enjoying reading it all very much! Plus, I buy something, on average, the second time I'm told about it.

Thanks guys, I now feel able (in this supportive environment) to blow my own trumpet as loud as I want, knowing you won't think bad of me. A kind of AA for publicity hungry authors. This where I belong!

Whoops! Here I thought it would take at least a couple of days for any submitted changes to take effect at all of the places that sell Boomerang, but Smashwords is quick as can be. So....Amazon and B&N (at least for now) are the places where you can still get it for $1.99. I have no idea how long it will take them to post the new price. But I do know the action on Amazon has taken a sudden turn for the, well, more active.

Get it while you can at $1.99, then tell all your friends, family and coworkers what a great book they too can have for just $4.99. You'll still be doing them a favor. And supporting the Arts. Which is a good thing.

I'm still cracking up reading your back and forth banter with shameless book plugging mixed in. (It goes well with my morning coffee)

Psst.... I think you have many more reading this thread than you think..
