I suspect that you've fallen for the common fallacy of thinking that
"Python" refers to a species of snake; in fact, "Python" is a reference
to Monty Python's Flying Circus, and most pythonistas make a point of
heavily using irreverent humor.

There's nothing like a cream pie to the face for demonstrating how
serious you are.
