f|break: mr. creosote

mr. creosote
monty python's the meaning of life
monty python memories ... i-beam (san francisco, on wiki) - in the '80s. memories of college student night dancing - cheap, strong drinks - videos.

side bar ... back in the day, awesome concerts for way cheap (hovering around $10 give or take - and mostly take). i remember seeing erasure (1987) because my friends and i were near the front, staring up at andy bell's red jockstrap-like costumey thing. ALSO, i remember my girlfriends and i were in the area one evening and HAD TO PEE BIG TIME, so we actually found parking just in front of the i-beam, asked if we could go pee, and they told us we had to pay cover. we paid $7 each (i think) to go to the bathroom and then hung around for the cat heads and the meat puppets (apparently on jan 20,1986 per this poster).

anyway, back to the video clips. AH YES, video clips of movie scenes. well, this fiber break is not for the faint of heart. REALLY! IT'S NOT . if you remember the monty python movie the meaning of life, then you MUST remember mr. creosote and john cleese (as the waiter) with a rather infamous line -
"it's only a wafer thin."

enjoy (?) a fiber break with mr. creosote (over here)
for ~ 5.43 min and a reminder about gluttony (?)
another bucket for monsieur ...
and here is where IT ALL begins 
(~ 4:08 min into the clip)





MAÎTRE D:
And finally, monsieur, a wafer-thin mint.
MR. CREOSOTE:
Nah.
MAÎTRE D:
Oh, sir, it's only a tiny, little, thin one.
MR. CREOSOTE:
No. Fuck off. I'm full.
MAÎTRE D:
Oh, sir. Hmm?
MR. CREOSOTE:
[groan]

MAÎTRE D:
It's only a wafer thin.

MR. CREOSOTE:
Look, I couldn't eat another thing. I'm absolutely stuffed. Bugger off.
MAÎTRE D:
Oh, sir, just-- just one.
MR. CREOSOTE:
[groaning] All right. Just one.
MAÎTRE D:
Just the one, monsieur. Voilà.
MR. CREOSOTE:
[groaning]
MAÎTRE D:
Bon appétit.
MR. CREOSOTE:
[groaning]
[suspenseful music]

MAÎTRE D:
Thank you, sir, and now, here's ze check.
