Gute Nacht da draußen, wo immer ihr auch seid.
The python

In 1968 John Cleese, the well known mem­ber of Monty Python, did a tv show called How to irri­tate peo­ple. There’s no need to say that he is a spe­cial­ist, when it comes to com­bin­ing the irri­ta­tion of peo­ple with humour.
In 2008 Monty Python appeared in the inter­net per­son­ally for, well I don’t really know what for. But they are there. And they irri­tate and amuse as if noth­ing had hap­pened in the last 40 years. How inter­est­ing to see there still so much room for them to act like that. John Cleese seems to be the most active one of them, hav­ing an own blog and an own twit­ter account.

And there he says things like this:

Ha?

Ha!’ means you know some­thing. Some­thing of inter­est. Some­thing of impor­tance? Some­thing we need to know? Def­i­nitely some­thing he’s hid­ing from his followers.

You see how easy it is to irri­tate peo­ple: Just hide some infor­ma­tion from some­one and show within a short utter­ance that there is some kind of infor­ma­tion he might be inter­ested in. That he could even­tu­ally be in need of. Even if he doesn’t have a tiny clue what that kind of infor­ma­tion that could be.

John keeps that infor­ma­tion for about 7 hours. And 7 hours in twit­ter are a life­time. You can drive with your car from Lon­don to Paris in 7 hours.

Finally he comes back and…

enjoys keep­ing his secret.

You think I just made that up? Have a look:
