The real reason we never hear from Monty Python anymore
When Graham Chapman ceased to be in 1989, fellow Python Terry Jones described it as "the worst case of party-pooping [he's] ever seen." It was the day before Python's 20th anniversary, and what followed was a bizarre but fitting eulogy, clearly written to pay tribute to the man who turned a dead parrot into one of the troupe's most famous sketches.
Chapman becoming an ex-person and joining the choir invisible himself seemed to put a damper on any kind of real, 100 percent authentic reunion (although he has reunited with the group in ash form, although he understandably didn't contribute much), but what about the others? Surely they could use the money, right? Surely, a reunion would be better than being forced into eating a lump of cold poison and working 29 hours a day down at the mill … right? So what gives?
