My brother and I pretty much learned English from watching He-Man and Monty Python. This might explain the Chinglish accent that plagued me for years before it finally diluted itself to an unflattering Queens twang. Needless to say, Monty Python holds a special place in my heart, and I’m pretty sure my brother’s also since we still quote the lines from the ingenious Holy Grail from time to time. This is why homeboy’s getting his own set of Monty Python Knights of the Round Table for his birthday this year.

Monty Python Holy Grail

Clockwise from top: King Arthur, Sir Bedevere the Wise, Sir Galahad the Pure, Sir Robin the Not Quite So Brave as Sir Lancelot, and Sir Lancelot the Brave—the silly English K-n-n-n-n-n-n-n-niggits!
