Don't listen to him, he was joking.

"Python" is short for "Monty Python's Flying Circus",
a British television comedy originally from 1969-1971
(although movies, records, books and Broadway shows
continue to the present). Read the documention,
you'll see numerous references to spam (used in one
of their famous routines) and other Pythonisms.

Anyway, all the posting in this group is comedy.
If you aren't getting it, run out and buy and study
all the DVD's. When you've reached the point where
you have The Argument Clinic dialogue memorized,
come back here and all this will make sense.

Just be careful, some of the Python routines aren't
SUPPOSED to make sense ("cabbage crates over the how's
your father"), that's the joke.
