      Always look on the bright side of this Monty Python Talking Keyring!

      Emanation make a very naughty but nice range of 'In Your Pocket' key rings.

      The range includes a Monty Python In Your Pocket talking keyring, which seemed like a bit of pre show fun when we went to see the stage show Spamalot The Musical.

      I have only ever come across a small handful of people who are not Python fans, as their insane sillyness is usually well received. If you are one of those brave but misguided souls, that doesn't get Python then perhaps its best to turn away now, as the Monty Python In Your Pocket keyring will not be for you.

      **********************************************************
      Its for those silly devils, including myself, who find Spam & Killer Rabbits funny!

      Having previously given a Mr T In Your Pocket keyring as a gift to an old skool A Team fan, I was aware of how much fun the range of talking pocket keyrings could be. The sound of Mr T saying 'Shut Up, Fool' over and over did give the recipient of the gift a good few giggles, whilst annoying almost everyone else.

      **********************************************************
      It seemed great fun indeed to bag a Monty Python version, to get everyone into a relaxed and happy pre show mood. It worked a treat as the others in our group were not expecting it at all. Plenty of fun and laughter ensued, especially when someone set it off saying 'You're fooking nicked me old beauty' during the interval. Which resulted in a mass of hysterical laughter.

      I must say that since then the talking key ring has caused havoc, giggles and even annoyance along the way, but its still going strong and is handy for keeping keys on too. We bought ours for £5.99 and it was well worth it, for all the fun we have had with it. The Monty Python keyring certainly has lots to say for itself! For a teeny red plastic keyring, its a bold as its colour suggests!

      **********************************************************
      As the proud owner of a Monty Python In Your Pocket, you will 'Always look on the bright side of life!' If you have often wanted to be one of the 'Knights who say Nii' ( and no you cannot demand a shrubbery!) then this is just right for you.

      Built in phrases are as follows....hang on, just playing them through!

      1/ Alright but apart from the sanitation, the medicine, the education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, the fresh water system and public health ..... What have the Romans ever done for us ???

      2/ He is not the messiah, he's a very naughty boy!!

      3/ No one, is to stone anyone until I blow this whistle! Do you understand? And I want to make this absolutely clear, even if they do say Jehovah.

      4/ You're fooking nicked me old beauty!

      5/ We are the knights who say Ni!

      6/ Always look on the bright side, etc.

      7/ And finally Monsieur, a wafer thin mint!

        A fun novelty item perfect for any Monty Python fans as a joke present

        They may have been around 40 years ago with their Flying Circus followed by five equally hilarious and equally absurd films, but Monty Python still remain today a comedy force to be reckoned with. With singing lumberjacks, dead parrots, an unhealthy obsession with Spam and constant attacks from the Spanish Inquisition their comedy repertoire has few rivals.

        But is it possible to condense all this comedy genius into one simple portable device to be wielded in any given situation? With Emanation's Monty Python in Your Pocket the answer is yes!

        This small, light, red, innocuous looking device with little yellow buttons and a keychain attachment facility seems harmless enough at first glance. But what bursts forth at the press of a button is the full explosive power of the Pythons...so be warned - with great power comes great responsibility...


        ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

        In a church and feeling sacrilegious? Press the top right button and you'll get the shrill cry of "He's not the Messiah, he's a very naughty boy!". That one usually goes down well - especially if you're visiting the Vatican City.

        Strolling about a museum of much Roman historical merit whilst being annoyed by a patronising guide? Why not let the Pythons ask "Alright but apart the sanitation, the medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, the fresh water system and public health. What have the Romans ever done for us?".

        In a restaurant with laryngitis and you cannot finish your order off without sounding like a strangled frog? Let the Pythons help you out. "And finally Monsieur, a wafer thin mint".

        Find yourself stuck in that typically awkward situation of leading a religious public execution whilst losing a bit of crowd control - the Pythons have the solution. "No one is to stone anyone until I blow this whistle - do you understand - even and I want to make this absolutely clear, even if they do say Jehovah".

        Fallen though a wormhole back to King Arthur's time and in need of protection against deadly oncoming knights? The Pythons can save you with a convincing and intimidating outpouring of "We are the knights who say Ni, Ni". That will send any attacking knights running with their tails between their legs.

        But, best of all, the Pythons have a message of hope when all seems lost. Has your house just blown up and all your worldly possessions incinerated beyond recognition? Has your car been stolen by local ruffians and spray painted pink? Did an unfortunately filmed public scene of a dog removing some of your essential outer garments receive its millionth hit on YouTube? Let the Pythons soothe you with a lovely rendition of "Always look on the bright side of life".

        Still not enough? Well - there is a secret button for the adventurous types to try out. I won't spoil what this one is but simply press the top right and middle right buttons at the same time for a mystery phrase!

        ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


        Silliness aside, Monty Python in Your Pocket, whilst a lot of fun, is nothing but a novelty item. It is perfect as a joke present for any Monty Python fan and will get a good few laughs when first used, but as is the case for any item like this, the novelty will more likely than not soon wear off so it should only be purchased in jest. Thankfully at £6.95 from Amazon (original retail price at £8.99) it is a fairly inexpensive item so works well as a joke present.

        There are just so many hilarious phrases to choose from that undoubtedly your favourite ones will be missing, but I think a good mix was picked from both their TV shows and films to try to capture as much of the magic as possible.

        It is quite small and will fit in the hand, but as an attachment to your set of keys, I wouldn't recommend it, especially for drivers, as it is a little bulky and does tend to dangle a bit low so could be slightly distracting. Best to do as it says and keep it in your pocket or a suitable bag for easy access. You never know when an emergency situation may arise for one of these phrases to come out and save the day.
