MG TD TF 1500 - Twit Olympics

After an email or two with a friend talking about the demise of most British Car Companies, I mentioned the 'Powers That Be' (company execs/some parlimentarians) reminded me of the Monty Python "Twit Olympics" sketch...
Found it out on the net and low and behold there is an MGB and a midget in the sketch...

I forgot all about that one! (and this coming from somebody that got a "Holy Grail" T shirt from one of his children for Christmas this year!)
Got me thinking....
I am going to have to go through some old hard-drives ....somewhere I had a link to a site about 5+ years that had an excellent listing of all movies & TV shows that M.G.'s were in. As I recall, one of the fun things about it was it pointed out many of the "mistakes" made in the movies.
(stuff like the Marlboro man removing a spark plug from "wrong side" of the bonnet, carb "adjustments" done from left side, Dizzy cap being "removed" from the right side of a TF.) Quite entertaining ...have to see if it is still out there and I can find it!

Watched a TV series a while back about the 2nd world war and a flyer driving his 'girl' somewhere...anyway...its about 1945 and off they go down the road in a TD.... spoiled the whole series.

Found the link...still works!

Must have been another one, as I am sure I recall some of us posting some of the "mistakes" made in some of these fliks.

Gee, I know one they missed, Lazarus, in the PBS movie 'Transistorized'. It's the story of Wm. Schockley and his part in the transistor.

Your parrots not dead, he's just sleeping. The twit sketch and the lumber jack song are my three favorites.
Guess you have to be a little different.
Don't mind if we call ya Bruce, make things a bit easier. Black Knight's the best.

Monty Python's Flying Circus is the best!

Seen by me recently was a PC Richards commercial with B and an episode of a cops/worst drivers show also with a B.

I was watching comedy channel the other day and there was a scene with Ben stiller & Gene Hackman. There was a car wrecked into a fence and it was either a Midget or a Healey. Anyone see this?
