‘ELLO POLLY! London Celebrates 50th Anniversary of Monty Python with Dead Parrot Statue

In honor of Monty Python turning a whopping 50 years old this year, London has placed a 50-foot-long fiberglass parrot statue in Potters Fields Park, near Tower Bridge.

Naturally, the parrot is “sleeping” on its back.

The statue is of a Norwegian Blue, the type of parrot discussed in the comedy troupe’s infamous Dead Parrot Sketch.

The spot where the bird is in repose will also be the same place where a huge screening of the Monty Python Live farewell show will occur this Sunday, July 20, according to Radio Times.
