Python's delightful and, on the whole, consistent reductio ad absurdum of the Grail legend, in which the Knights forsake their chorus line can-can dancing at Camelot for a higher aim. The Pythons set up a 'historical' tale as the sum total of modern anachronisms and misconceptions about it, a format repeated in The Life of Brian.
