Mr Creosote Monty Python

November 22, 2012 by  

Mr Creosote Monty Python, Mr Creosote is a fictional character who appears in Monty Python’s The Meaning of Life. Creosote is a monstrously obese restaurant patron who is served a vast amount of food while vomiting repeatedly. After being persuaded to eat an after-dinner mint, he explodes in a very graphic way. The sketch is the first part of “Part VI: The Autumn Years” of the film.

The character is played by Terry Jones (who is also the director of the film).

In the sketch, Mr Creosote dines at a French restaurant. The entrance of this morbidly obese middle-aged man is accompanied by ominous music and is followed by a short dialogue with the maître d’, played by John Cleese:

Maître d’ Ah, good afternoon, sir; and how are we today?
Mr Creosote Better.
Maître d’ Better?
Mr Creosote Better get a bucket, I’m gonna throw up.

Creosote is then led to his table, and once seated starts projectile-vomiting, failing to hit the bucket he had requested a moment before. The floor quickly becomes covered in vomit, and so do the cleaning woman and the maître d’s trousers. Creosote listens patiently while highlights of the evening’s menu are recited to him; after vomiting on the menu held open in front of him by the maître d’, he orders all of the dishes listed by the maitre’d. As a result, he is served moules marinieres, pate de foie gras, beluga caviar, eggs benedict, a leek tart, frogs’ legs amandine and quail’s eggs on a bed of mushrooms all mixed in a bucket with the quail eggs on top and a double helping of pate. The appetizers are followed by the main course of jugged hare, with a sauce of truffles, bacon, Grand Marnier, anchovies and cream. For apéritifs, Mr Creosote has six bottles of Château Latour 1945, a double jeroboam of champagne, and half a dozen crates of brown ale – considerably less than his usual allowance.

He finishes the feast, and several other courses, vomiting profusely all over himself, his table, and the restaurant’s staff throughout his meal, causing other diners to lose their appetite (in some cases, even throwing up themselves). Finally, after being persuaded by the smooth maître d’ to eat a “wafer-thin mint”, he explodes, covering the restaurant and diners with innards and partially digested food – even starting a “vomit-wave” among the other diners, who leave in disgust.
