Snake references just as ok as Monty Python jokes/references in python community? :)

I'm semi-seriously wondering if snake jokes are valid in the Python
community since technically, Python came from Monty Python, not
slithery animals.

Problem is I don't know that anyone born after Elvis died gets any of
these Monty Python jokes.

Is it kosher to make snake jokes/references even though officially they
don't have anything to do with the name of our favorite language?
(*Everyone* gets snake jokes! :)

I protest...Elvis isn't dead... ;-) Every good geekling has
surely been brought up with a staple diet of MP (as well as
Hitchhikers, Black Adder, etc)...

They may get snake jokes, but all they do is boo and *hiss*.

Sorry...that word play was made in cold-blood <accent

I think the decent people of this newsgroup are sick and tired of
being told that the decent people of this newsgroup are sick and
tired. I'm certainly not! And I'm sick and tired of being told
that I am.

Well, yes, that's just the sort of blinkered, Philistine
pig-ignorance I've come to expect from you non-creative garbage.

Ah yes, exposure to Blackadder helps enormously ... after some hours
spent trying to understand things like metaclasses, it's helpful to
know what to do: put a pencil or chopstick up each nostril, wear your
underpants on your head, and sit there muttering "wibble wibble" until
they come to take you away.

But hey - Elvis is not dead! - that is just a conspiracy theory that was
originated by the Cliff Richard's fan club...
