These days, we all have moments where we seriously struggle to keep ourselves occupied, entertained, and positive. While some decide to bring some normalcy back into their lives by getting at-home haircuts or recreating paintings, others get even more creative with all the extra time they have. Take, for instance, this family from Grosse Pointe Park, Michigan, who decided to entertain both themselves and neighbors passing by their house. They got the brilliant idea to recreate a sketch called “The Ministry of Silly Walks” from the Monty Python comedy troupe’s television show. In case you haven’t seen it yet, the sketch depicts a minister who has developed a very peculiar way of walking. The minister meets a man named Mr. Pudey at his work, The Ministry of Silly Walks, where the man asks him for a government grant to develop his silly walk. The sketch is meant to poke fun at the inefficiency of government bureaucracy.
The family, who are clearly big fans of Monty Python, decided to ask their neighbors to demonstrate their own silly walks. They put up a sign on the sidewalk right in front of their house, which reads as follows: “You have now entered the jurisdiction of silly walks. Commence silly walking immediately.” Finer print reads: “Follow @Yorkshire_Silly_Walks for highlights. Your walk may be posted! We’re all in this together so let’s have some fun while we can! (Don’t know how to silly walk? Google Monty Python Ministry of Silly Walks for inspiration.)”
As expected, this idea generated some amusing results. Scroll down below to see them!
