What we have here is failure to communicate: Monty Python and reality

Lately, communication doesn’t seem to be as easy as it could be. Simple directions (simple to me) are getting royally complicated by others.

So I’ve been thinking about the scene of a king in Monty Python’s Holy Grail, giving the two guards a simple direction. And how badly they mess it up.

At least it helps me laugh. After I’ve gotten over being ticked off.
