Things that make us think of Python

Sometimes there are things not really related to Python that make me think of Python. Since I doubt I'm the only one that happens to, I decided to start this thread so if anyone else has things that make him or her think of Python he or she can share it here.

To start us off, there is a candy company called "The Gilliam Candy Company". I don't think I have to explain why that makes me think of Python :) although as far as I know Terry's family doesn't own it. They've been around since 1927 and as long as I can remember that has been my favorite brand as far as hard candy is concerned.

Oh, and if anyone remembered when I said I saw a company who was named "Albatross", I found the picture!

Lvndr HppE:

I had this can for a while, before I noticed it. The Dr. Pepper can had characters from Iron Man in order to advertise the new Iron Man 2 movie that came out this summer. A few weeks ago, I turned over the can and noticed that Gwyneth Paltrow's character is named "Pepper Pots"

Found this in a recipe book today, almost tempted to try it!

That's brilliant. I saw a recipe for 'Graham Cake' in a book today, that made me think of Python of course.

Lumberjack cake?! Oh my gosh that is awesome!
Just Apples, Dates, Bi-Carbonate, Water, and Butter? Doesn't sound much like a cake to me xD

Mrs Attila the Hun 93 at 1:41 am September 30

Unless you add chopped wood...

gruggywoof at 2:32 am September 30

Or wild flowers? It does mention shredded coconut further down the page! Think I'll save the recipe for October 5th...

do you have to wear high heels, suspenders and a bra while making it though?

The Ex-Leper: I have a friend that lives on Gilliam Circle

mrsCutout at 3:03 pm September 18

Oooh! Nice!

TheRealGilliamFan at 2:54 pm September 19

Oh that's awesome!! Me so jealous haha! I wanna live on Gilliam Circle too!

gruggywoof: My friend recently moved to "Lupin Court", which was a good laugh. :)

i love the dennis moore skit!

Lvndr HppE: I was watching "Black Adder the Third" the other day when Black Adder said "No Time To Lose". Made me think "No Time ToLoose"

Then again, a lot of British television reminds me of Monty Python. I see some subtle hints of it sometimes.

mrsCutout at 3:04 pm September 18

Haha ofcourse! They affected everyone!

ThankYouSaystheGreatQueen: add a comment

Oops sorry, I'm a bit of a noob so I couldn't figure it out for a second... Anyway... We learned about the Spanish Inquisition in class today... Need I say more? :)

Jatta: A friend of mine called me today to tell that his wife had finally given birth to their first child, two weeks late, but who’s counting. He was very excited about being there in the delivery with his wife and that they now have a healthy baby boy. First thing that popped up in my head was not to ask the height or the weight of the baby but was there a machine that goes “PING”? I felt like a complete looney, but fortunately that’s not a bad thing :)

mrsCutout at 2:24 pm September 17

Ahahaha that's so cool! Hehe they're everywhere! Congrats for your friend though!!

Jatta at 1:19 pm September 18

yeah, they are everywhere, even in the fruitsallad. With a melon!?!?!?! :D

Mrs Attila the Hun 93:

Ah! Something just came up. I was in Manchester a few months back, and I spotted this.
A bar called 'Norwegian Blue.' I almost died xD

Holly at 10:01 pm September 18

that's funny

gruggywoof at 9:41 am September 18

Ha, that's great! Wonder how many of the regulars are Python enthusiasts? :)

arkennedy at 1:43 pm September 16

For the most part I'm not into bars but if I ever visit Manchester for any reason I'll definitely try to visit that bar :)

Jatta at 9:43 am September 17

oh yeah, this would be a perfect bar :D

mrsCutout at 1:45 pm September 16

LOL! Hahaha good one!

the_thina: everytime I watch the shining and jack starts smashing up the bathroom door I start singing the lumberjack song. he even got the right shirt on! even if he is wearing a cardigan over it.

arkennedy at 10:06 am September 16

I can't say that ever occurred to me before, but now that you mention it, I don't know why I didn't think of it as well. I see what you mean. I liked the video by the way.

the_thina at 10:54 am September 16

well, its a very intense story (even if the book is even better) so its possible that the reason you didnt think of it was that you werer too tense. jack is superb in that movie, Im terrified of him as a person because of that one. haha

arkennedy at 1:39 pm September 16

That probably is the reason

Lvndr HppE: I was trying to find the picture of it, but I've turned up unsuccessful. There is a company here, called "Albatross & Co".

mrsCutout at 1:46 pm September 16

OMG realy? This is cool!

TheRealGilliamFan: "The Gilliam Candy Company" - that is too cool!

Lvndr HppE at 3:28 pm September 13

I know. I totally want some Gilliam candy right now.

Jatta at 9:24 am September 16

do you have any idea how naughty that sounds? :D

Sgt. Looney at 4:37 pm October 28

AAAHAHAAAHAAA!!!! Gilliam candayyyy.....


I saw this sticker on a car today, its for Bermuda or something. I'm not really sure. But as soon as I saw it I starting singing in my head "Lemming, Lemming...Lemming of the BDA"

Mrs Attila the Hun 93 at 1:57 am September 13

That's amazing! Great little find.
It's a man's life in the British Dental Association

mrsCutout at 4:33 am September 13

Haha yes Lemming of the BDA cool!

Mrs Attila the Hun 93:

A company somewhat near where I live: A Python estate agents anyone? =P

TheRealGilliamFan at 11:48 pm September 12

LOL! a moving company?

mrsCutout at 4:34 am September 13


Jatta: I think the whole world makes me think of Python, which at times is a bit disturbing. To other people anyway because they can't understand what I'm giggling at...
I recently discovered that there lives a hedgehog in my backyard. I don't think I need to mention I named it "Norman"...

arkennedy at 10:13 am September 12

Good name :)

Jatta at 11:36 am September 12

I think so too... wonder where I got the idea... :)
