Default Graham Chapman's

I read an interesting account of John Cleese's funeral speech for Graham Chapman. They were both members of the Monty Python comic group.

In Eric Idle's book, he describes how Cleese used comedy to break the wave of emotion, and jokingly spoke ill of Chapman, using language that I won't repeat here.

I realize that's a very off-the-wall approach but in its context, it sounded quite appropriate to that particular situation, as told by Idle.
