WINTER STORM CAROL CLEVELAND REMINDS US HOW MUCH WE HATE THE SNOW, BUT LOVE MONTY PYTHON

I have to admit that Winter Storm Carol Cleveland caught me completely by surprise. I knew that snow was in the forecast, but I had no idea that we would be dealing with ten inches of snow by the time all is said and done. As you may know, Shyboy Tim and I originally began naming Winter Storms after BBC Radio hosts that we loved. When we ran out of names, we switched to naming the storms after our favorite British comedians. We had a request for a female Winter Storm awhile back and immediately Carol Cleveland came to mind.
Her name may not be familiar, but if you have ever watched Monty Python, than you have seen her work. She is considered by many to be the unofficial seventh Python (Terry Gilliam is not pictured above), and was their female counterpart of choice. If you see a female on the screen, and it isn't a Python on drag, then it was probably Carol Cleveland!





and this next clip is for Shyboy



I could go on and on pasting videos of Carol Cleveland on the blog, but the best way to see her is to simply watch Monty Python's Flying Circus. It's snowing out there anyway, so why leave home? Be safe folks!
