Let’s start the New Year with a few thoughts on the cheese part of the classic wine pairing, courtesy of Monty Python. This is from the 1979 benefit for Amnesty International, called The Secret Policeman’s Ball, with John Cleese and Michael Palin reprising their TV series Cheese Shop roles. One word of warning: It’s live, and Cleese uses an epithet at one point. He also makes Palin crack up.
The blog will be back Monday with the $10 Hall of Fame. Happy New Year.
