As Long as I Get to be the Watery Tart

Happy 40th Anniversary to Monty Python!  In revisiting some of my favorite clips this week, I came across this one which I have ALWAYS loved.

I started to see some of the relationships between this clip and blogging. (maybe a stretch, but humor me here).

First of all, we don’t call each other by our names but some random handle. Might as well call me “old woman.” (I’m 33. I’m not exactly old.)

We are THE autonomous collective. But try telling the FTC that. They want to have a self-perpetuating autocracy by exploiting the workers.

There are those few bloggers out there that would like to bend us to their imperialist dogma. I can think of some who like to be all judgmental and show up on talk shows spouting such dogma.

We all see the violence inherent in the system. This community apparently NEEDS some sort of controversy. Personally, it just makes me feel like I’m being repressed.

We have our quarterly conferences where we need to ratify by simple majority what we choose to call ourselves this month. (writer, blogger, mommy-blogger, mom who writes, WATERY TART).

Me? Well, as long as I get to be the watery tart, I will be happy. I want to lob scimitars at other bloggers, declaring them emperors and empresses of all bloggers. What do you think? Damn, I think that this needs appointment needs to be ratified by 2/3 majority.

Who is our executive officer this week? I think I want to call a meeting.

Share and Enjoy:

    I’m just thinking that if Monty Python was doing some skits today, they could be having a lot of fun with people in “social media.”

    Of course. We takes turns being the watery tart. But, it might get confusing. So can we call you a moist bint?

    All of my children cut their teeth on Monty Python. Yes, even the naughty bits. I’m a terrible mother.

    You can’t imagine the look of surprise on a grown up woman’s face when a five year old starts quoting “Life of Brian.”
