“Bovard Zingers,” Monty Python, and the Brian Wilson Podcast

Brian Wilson and I had a rowdy show to start 2024.  In his introduction, Brian tagged me as “the only writer today with a vacancy sign on his 12-year molar, and recent recipient of the American Dental Association’s first annual Happy Tooth Award.”

I parried with a Monty Python parrot — the best known Python sketch involving  a guy conned to buy a dead parrot.  Big chunk of filling & tooth fell out (damned expensive steak on New Year’s).  But that tooth had a root canal 30 years ago, so it was already dead.

Brian replied, “I was just afraid that it was just another way of Germany getting even with you.”

I conceded: “Well, I didn’t have a lot of anesthetic for that root canal from the family dentist….. Hey, I don’t want to sound bitter.”

After a cameo reference to the movie “Marathon Man,” we plinked lines from my “Zestiest Zingers of 2023” roundup.

Here’s Brian’s summary of the program — which you can listen to at the Brian Wilson Writes Substack – and plenty of other places
