When we were little, Dad made sure that my sister and I got a proper education: We grew up watching all episodes of Monty Python's Flying Circus on PBS. So, the first and only interesting thing I could think of upon seeing this week's Illustration Friday topic, "Tall," was John Cleese exclaiming to Michael Palin, "I'll do what I like because I'm 6-foot-5, and I eat punks like you for breakfast!"

Here is our Kitty tribute to that skit. Who else but Monty Python would think to build it around archaeologists of the 1920s with an obsession slightly more important to them than digging for ancient relics?

It seems The Kitties need a tie-breaker for their contest. While the winning team is determined, you can watch the full Monty Python skit below. I think Terry Jones may be the scene-stealer in this one. Enjoy!

So much fun! I love how they use their long long curly tails to make themselves even taller.
