The people in the neighborhood were equally sporty when a homeowner put up a sign instructing pedestrians to do a "silly walk."
As the COVID-19 pandemic gripped the world in a vise of uncertainty and terror, Grosse Pointe Park, Michigan, resident Liz Koto and family decided to ask their neighbors to do "The Ministry of Silly Walks" routine from the Monty Python comedy troupe's television show "Monty Python's Flying Circus." The lighthearted initiative was an effort to amuse themselves and their neighbors during a time of distress.
In case you haven't seen it, the skit concentrates on a clergyman who walks in a very unusual manner. Mr. Pudey, who works for The Ministry of Funny Walks, approaches the minister and requests government funding to create his own funny walk. Liz, a local government employee, told Bored Panda that she enjoys this comedy because of the way Monty Python makes fun of the dysfunctional nature of politics.
Liz set up the Yorkshire Silly Walks Instagram account to post the hilarious outcomes of the sign asking pedestrians to 'commence silly walking immediately.' Unsurprisingly, people embraced the concept and it soon became evident that her neighbors were pretty skilled at silly walking. So here are some of the most hilarious walks to make your day:
