Monty Python-inspired cake topper

Wanna see the cutest Monty Python-inspired cake topper EVAR? Lookit…

Now, how exactly were these adorable birdies at all inspired by Monty Python? Tribe member Spaz Girl explains:

My Mister and I met online. In the Getting to Know You phase, we were IMing and the following dialogue took place:

Him: Do you happen to know the airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow?
Me: African or European?
Him: Wanna meet for coffee?
Me: Hell yes.

If you aren't a Monty Python fan, that lovely nerd mating ritual was dialogue from Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Watch it here.

So, fast forward a couple of years, and I'm complaining about cake toppers. I don't want one unless I can have an African and a European swallow, carrying a coconut. Then Ye Olde light bulb goes off over my head. And the search began for my dream cake topper.

The search lead her to Etsy seller The Air Castle who whipped up this ridiculously amazing Monty Python inspired cake topper out of thin air!

Who knew a Monty Python cake topper could be so romantic!? Now, for the next cake topper I want you to bring me a shrubbery. One that looks nice… and not too expensive…
