Excerpt

The Maitre D approaches [Mr. Creosote] with a silver tray.

Maitre D And finally, monsieur, a wafer-thin mint.
Mr. Creosote No.
Maitre D Oh sir! It's only a tiny little thin one.
Mr. Creosote No. Fuck off — I'm full... (Belches)
Maitre D Oh sir... it's only wafer thin.
Mr. Creosote Look — I couldn't eat another thing. I'm absolutely stuffed. Bugger off.
Maitre D Oh sir, just... just one...
Mr. Creosote Oh all right. Just one.
Maitre D Just the one, sir... voila... bon appetit...

Mr. Creosote somehow manages to stuff the wafer-thin mint into his mouth and then swallows. The Maitre D takes a flying leap and cowers behind some potted plants. There is an ominous splitting sound. Mr. Creosote looks rather helpless and then he explodes, covering waiters, diners, and technicians in a truly horrendous mix of half-digested food, entrails and parts of his body. People start vomiting

"Synopsis" by , The publishers would like to thank all the fish who have collaborated in this book. We hope that other fish will follow the example of those who have participated, so that, in future, fish all over the world will live together in harmony and understanding, and put aside their petty differences, cease pursuing and eating each other and live for a brighter, better future for all fish, and those who love them. Thank you.

(Obviously this applies to bigger fish rather more than to smaller fish.)

"Synopsis" by , The complete screenplay (with photographs and illustrations) of the final Monty Python film, written by and starring Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Terry Jones, Eric Idle, and Michael Palin, and directed by Terry Jones.
"Synopsis" by , October 1999 marked the 30th anniversary of the first broadcast of Monty Python's Flying Circus on BBC television. This book contains the full script with pictures of the last Monty Python film.
"Synopsis" by , The award-winning 1983 masterpiece lampooning the Seven Ages of Man.
