Salome at the blog BNoirDetour, who regularly Live Tweets a film-noir movie on Twitter.com every Sunday night at 9 p.m. EDT, said she’d let me co-host this week. I thought, what more irreverent way to end Easter weekend than with a Live Tweet of Monty Python’s Life of Brian?
Salome was so enthused that, even though it wasn’t a film-noir movie, she generously gave up most of her time slot and even helped me plug the Live Tweet. Too bad I wasn’t there.
My daughter had a bad reaction to lamb or some other Easter delicacy we were serving, and we ended up rushing her to the emergency room for a case of food poisoning. Thankfully, Salome soldiered on without me and still hosted “my” part of the Live Tweet (for which many thanks, Salome).
Judging from the riffs that were left, this was one of the best Live Tweets I almost hosted. So here are the top 5 riffs from #SatMat‘s March 27 Live Tweet of Monty Python’s Life of Brian.
