The Holy Grail Of Comedy

| MI, USA | Parents & Guardians, Theme Of The Month

(I finally show my mom ‘Monty Python’s Holy Grail’. She seems confused by the jokes, and really didn’t like the movie at all. I am disappointed, but don’t think much of it because I know it isn’t her kind of humor. It is about a week later, and we’re driving on the freeway.)

Mom: *out of nowhere* “Ni!”

Me: *not paying attention* “Excuse me?”

Mom: “NI!”

Me: *thinking I must have misheard her* “Did…did you just say ‘Ni’?”

Mom: *proudly* “Yes! I saw a shrubbery! Right by the side of the road! So I say to you, NI!”
