A Hilarious Moment We ALL Missed in 2009!
« on: January 13, 2020, 05:46:23 am »
I was re-watching a sweet old show called "Natsu no Arashi" (2009) and in ep 2 the kid gets lost in town and stumbles upon the cafe which is the setting for most of the show. As he enters, there's a menu taped to the wall. (See attachment) You know how Japanese uses large circles to "bleep out" characters, like when we write F_CK or SH_T in English for swear words? The menu includes ""S_M," "_PAM," and "SPA_." Got it yet?

So, filling in the bl_nks, the six vertical lines of text read, from right to left:
"Egg bacon spam
Egg bacon sausage spam
Spam bacon sausage spam
Spam egg spam spam bacon spam
Spam spam spam spam spam beans
Spam spam spam spam"

That Monty Python skit aired in 1970!

UN-believable!

OVA-2 of the anime Girls und Panzer also features a homage to the Month Python "Sapm" sketch.  To avoid possible copyright issues, the characters say, "*pam."

@Rurutie8  Yes, saw that one too. GnP also included that momentary cutaway to a Viking longboat (COULD HAVE USED VINLAND SAGA!)


Say, the next time somebody makes an AMV of short SILLIES all strung together, Vinland Saga would make a Great "Spam Spam Spam" cut!
