Monty Python is reuniting for a stage show.

According to the Associated Press, member Terry Jones told the BBC on Tuesday he's excited the group is reuniting. He said he hopes to make enough money to pay off his mortgage.

Well ... no. I don't know why Terry Jones can't pay his mortgage. I didn't expect to be grilled like this is some sort of Spanish Inquisition.

Nobody ever expects that, do they?

As you may or may not know (if you didn't get the Spanish Inquisition reference) the group had its first big success with the Monty Python's Flying Circus TV show, which ran from 1969 until 1974. Then they branched out into movies, like "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" and "Life of Brian" and backed theatrical shows like "Monty Python's Spamalot."
