Elderberries Monty Python GIFs
King Arthur and his men, accompanied by their trusty coconut shells, undertake a quest to find the Holy Grail — and the result is a triumph over limited budgeting. Fortunately, the privately-owned Doune Castle , a 14th century fortification on the A84, about ten miles northwest of Stirling , was up for the challenge. The use of, basically, a single location necessitated a bit of imagination, with Doune standing in for almost every castle seen in the film. It is a silly place. Unlike many heritage locations, which are coy about their connection with popular culture, Doune Castle is happily proud of its association. It needs to be, considering the number of people who turn up with their own coconut shells for that once-in-a-lifetime video opportunity.

Out of frame to the left is the wall from which the French knights taunted. Note the coconut halves.
Throughout the years, I have developed a strong appreciation for silly humor. In particular, silliness displayed by the Brits. Monty Python is the epitome of British humor and quite frankly I feel as though it has generally gone under appreciated. The combination of political satire and absurdity puts a sophisticated flare on stupidity, as contradictory as that sounds. The quest for the grail can become quite dangerous… or not at all.

He was a witty, mustached french soldier who taunted and insulted King Arthur and his knights two times when they met, along with his fellow soldiers, as they hated Englishman. First, when Arthur and his knights were at the beginning of their quest for the Holy Grail , they stopped at the castle controlled by the Frenchmen. The french taunter and his fellow soldiers looked out of their castle, seeing Arthur and his knights. Arthur told the french taunter that if his lord would give them a place to sleep for night, he could join them in their quest. However, seeing that the knights are English, the Frenchman said that his lord already had a holy grail, so he will not go searching for one, and that they are french, not English, and declared Arthur a silly king.
