Monty Python's Life of Jorge

The surviving members of the Monty Python team have gathered together with some friends to produce a new comedy film, Monty Python's Life of Jorge, about a perfectly innocent Argentinian man who is frequently mistaken for the anti-Christ.

Terry Jones and Graham Chapman

Chapman/Jones lookalikes play Jorge (seen here in papal clothes) and his mother.

Script-writer John Zmirak has adapted some of the Life of Brian catchphrases to the hilarious story of a man with some followers who think he is the Messiah (see for example the "Where Pachamama is" website), but also many others who think he is the exactly the opposite (hi, Mundabor!)

Pachamama worship

Top quality trolling from a Pachamama fan.

Some of our favourite Life of Jorge catchphrases are:
He's not the anti-Messiah, he's just a very naughty pope.

What have the Roman popes done for us, apart from 
preserving traditional worship and teaching, and giving 
leadership to the worldwide Church? 

It's every Jesuit's right to have babies if he wants them.
But ... you can't HAVE babies, Jim!
Don't you oppress me!
And of course...

Pope after slapping a pilgrim

Always look on the gloomy side of life.


  1. Desperate trolling of (unsaved) prolly won't raise as many laughs as a well-aimed parody concerning wild traddy conspiracy theories, e.g. "Viganò's Pendulum" on WPI which went down a treat. BTW I told everyone I learned the art of Catholic satire from Bruvver Eccles (still time to be saved). Haven't seen any mention of Bosco (very unsaved) for a long while. Funny how that protestant fellow who hated the Pope (our guide to salvation) used to amuse us so much before the traddies started hating the Pope... Remind me, how does that work again?

  2. Love your 'Life of Jorge'! The Python fellows would be proud.

  3. Shouldn't that film be about an innocent Argentinian frequently mistaken for the Pope?
