The Brief: A variety of memes from the British comedy show and film Monty Python have been spreading online.
As it has a TV series, several films, and a cult-following, Monty Python is a meme goldmine. Even without the internet, it’s a source of lasting running jokes and cultural references. Image macros consisting of screenshots and quotes from the films and comedy sketches can be edited into almost infinite meme variations. Most of these memes require a familiarity with the source material, while others are more self-explanatory.
The latest surge involves a series of meta-memes. On the Dank Memes subreddit, people have been posting memes about Monty Python memes.
