I'm pretty sure the quote is "with this herring" rather than 'with a herring'.

A Monty Python quiz! My neeples explode with delight! Probably should have one for Holy Grail, one for Flying Circus, and one for Life of Brian and The Meaning of Life. Also, I was wondering, do you have any cheese at all?

Slight over-reliance on the films, but I guess that's how most people come into contact with Python, since the original shows are rarely broadcast these days.

Whilst I remembered it was a fish, it took me a while to work out what kind. Though herring seems fairly obvious in retrospect.

Monty Python are overrated .Life of Brian is easily the best thing they've done , its a great movie .Mr creosote is a funny sketch , and there is a reason they keep showing the dead parrot sketch on programmes about the sketch show is because it the only really funny sketch.I have watched all of their stuff . Holy Grail is just stupid.
