Python (Monty)

Me, a little earlier to a colleague, “just because the document we’ve received from on high [from our new bosses in the takeover] is called Unit Test Plan and has the words Unit, Test and Plan in 32 point font on the first page, doesn’t actually make it a unit test plan.”

There are some who say that Scott Adams is the bellwether for the digital, cube-bound, open-plan generation – today’s offering is particularly apposite. There are others who claim that Blackadder has oneliners that will always fit.

I have been known to hold forth that Top Gun has a quote for all occasions.

This morning, though, as often the case, Monty Python was the nominee. In particular their cat licence skit. Some might quote William Shakespeare, a rose by any other name smelling as sweet, I prefer John Cleese:

“This is a dog license with the word ‘dog’ crossed out and ‘cat’ written in. In crayon.”
