Something Timeless

I've just been watching Monty's Python's timelessly brilliant Spam sketch as part of the research I'm doing for a talk on 'Semantic Change', believe it or not. Brought back memories of avidly watching the programme when I was around thirteen or fourteen and trying to remember the sketches well enough to imitate them once back in school (on a Thursday morning, if I'm not mistaken.)

Strange, the things I found hysterically funny when I was a kid. And even stranger, I suppose, that I find them just as funny today.
