16h42 UTC; MONDAY, 5 MARCH 2012: Even with seven advertisers having announced their pulling advertising from The Oxycontin Boar's radio programme to the moment in response to his tasteless and misogynistic remarks targeting Sandra Fluke, Your Correspondent still thinks Meneer Rush Limbaugh, in the immortal words of Monty Python (as in the Welsh Coal Mine Sketch), "doesn't know the difference between the Battle of Borodino and a tiger's bum."

Latest to go: Carbonite, whose Big Kahuna is David Friend, issued the following remarks Saturday evening in the wake of Limbaugh's somewhat limp Appy Polly Loggy (via Huffington Post):
No one with daughters the age of Sandra Fluke, and I have two, could possibly abide the insult and abuse heaped upon this courageous and well-intentioned young lady. Mr. Limbaugh, with his highly personal attacks on Miss Fluke, overstepped any reasonable bounds of decency. Even though Mr. Limbaugh has now issued an apology, we have nonetheless decided to withdraw our advertising from his show. We hope that our action, along with the other advertisers who have already withdrawn their ads, will ultimately contribute to a more civilized public discourse.
And notwithstanding GOP Presidential wannabe Ron Paul's suggesting yesterday morning that Limbaugh's Appy Polly Loggy was necessary to prevent further advertiser defenstrations, Your Correspondent hopes more advertisers will see the error of their ways and drop their ads from Limbaugh's show, especially those of a "live read" sort as can command premium rates. Not to mention a few stations dropping his show under pressure from activists as are now targeting his EIB "network," actually a conduit of Premier Radio Networks, itself owned by Clear Channel Communications (and itself part of Mitt Romney's Bain Capital holdings, which ought be enow for Aunt Sally fodder against Romney's Presidential bid--even allowing for tomorrow's "Super Tuesday" slate of primaries and caucuses which could further drive the RepubliKKKan Presidential aspirations for Indecision 2012 into disarray).

=============

Meanwhile, with the Presidential bid of Newt Gingrich seeming to lose further traction in the Super Tuesday runup to the point of desperation needing to be resorted to, his campaign still insists that his Presidency would have among its core articles of faith keeping the price of gas at $2.50/gallon ... but how do we know such is possible consistent with his hard-wired belief in the defence of ekonomesie vryheid met Amerikaanse eienskappe "gebore ons die Volk, die Volk te doen" being one with Our National and Sovereign Identity, Antient and Peculiar (let alone his lack of basic free-market socioeconomic knowledge as explains his fondness for wasteful and counterproductive policies as could risk serious harm)?

*************

"And now for something completely different," in the immortal words of John Cleese: With The Once and Future Waterpark Capital getting ready for its summer marketing push, Your Correspondent couldn't help but imagine, in his Luscious Glory of dyslexically-flavoured whimsey, their several TV adverts (or, as they call them, "Splashbacks"; they can be seen omnibus here in YouTube), such rejoindered with classic Monty Python routines, the transition being as seamless as possible so that unsuspecting viewers are somehow caught by surprise.

For starters, of course, you'd have to include the "Big Five" sketches known and beloved of Old Pythonians of all nations:
  1. The Dead Parrot
  2. Spam, Spam, Spam, Spam
  3. The Ministry of Silly Walks
  4. The Lumberjack Song
  5. Crunchy Frog
To which a few other noteworthy specimens of classic British humour from Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin omnibus in form of Monty Python may be suggested for this honour:
  • Welsh Coal Mine
  • The Naughty Chemists' Shop
  • The Cheese Shop w/o Any Cheese
  • Timmy Williams' Coffee Time
  • Lemming of the BDA
  • Self-Defence Against Fresh Fruit
  • Conquistador Coffee
  • The Exploding Penguin Atop the TV Set
  • New Gas Cooker
  • Whizzo Butter (including the "Pepperpot" debut)
  • Idiots
  • The Adventures(?) of Biggles
  • Army Protection Racket
  • No Time to Lose Advice Centre
  • The Exploding Blue Danube
  • Killer Sheep in the Wainscotting
  • Royal Navy Expedition to Lake Pahoe
  • A Man with Three Buttocks
  • Interesting People
  • The Bishop!!
  • Confused bank robber
  • Travel Agency
  • The All-England Summarise Proust Competition
  • Storage Jars, followed by TV Is Bad for Your Eyes
  • Spot The Looney!
  • Ideal Loon Exhibition
  • Nobody Expects the Spanish Inquisition
  • Icelandic Honey Week
  • Ypres
  • Wife-Swapping on Grandstand
(The preceding was in no particular order of preference, mind you; on the other hand, if you feel some Python routines are more deserving of this rejoinder role than others, even allowing for The Big Five, leave a comment at the end. Incidentally, the title of this post was an Engrishfied treatment of the line "You don't know the difference between the Battle of Borodino and a tiger's bum!" from the Welsh Coal Mine Sketch, one of my particular favourites.)
