Re Monty Python and Jarry: Jarry invented 'pataphysics, from which the
pataphor is derived. It seems to me that the pataphor is the template for
much of Gilliam's animations.
Jarry's pataphysics was also a big influence on Boris Vian. Another writer who gets a strong reaction from rara avians. And another writer who probably had his tongue in his cheek when he unleashed Vernon Sullivan on an ususpecting Paris. Vian -- the godfather of 'silly noir'.
