Monty Python taught me that grown-ups were generally absurd and not excluded from ridicule, which, though true, still gets me in trouble from time to time.
Pythons' high level of British scoffing was the perfect antidote for the all too serious Cold War era USA. My pals and I would seek the stuff out wherever we could get it.
