"No one expects the Spanish Inquisition."

In case you didn't catch the reference Bonnie made yesterday in class, I'm going to explain the joke (and ruin it in the process). First aired in 1970, "The Spanish Inquisition" is a series of sketches from the sketch-comedy show Monty Python's Flying Circus, which featured the surreal comedy group Monty Python. It parodied the events of the real life Spanish Inquisition and spawned the phrase you may have heard yesterday in class: "No one expects the Spanish Inquisition." Below I have included a link to the sketches on Youtube. It's absolutely brilliant (as one might expect from the Pythons) and I encourage you all to take a break from work and enjoy the ridiculousness that is "The Spanish Inquisition."
