Funny Reactions Of People Who Were Told To ‘Commence Silly Walking’ By A Sign On The Sidewalk

On these eerie days of lockdown, there are moments where we seriously struggle to stay occupied, entertained, and positive. While some decide to bring a bit of normalcy back into their lives by getting at-home haircuts or recreating paintings, others get even more creative with all the extra time they have. Take, for instance, Liz Koto’s family from Grosse Pointe Park, Michigan, who decided to entertain both themselves and neighbors by asking them to recreate a sketch called “The Ministry of Silly Walks” from the Monty Python comedy troupe’s television show.

In case you haven’t seen it yet, the sketch centers around a minister with a very peculiar way of walking. The minister meets a man named Mr. Pudey at his work, The Ministry of Silly Walks, where the man asks him for a government grant to develop his own silly walk. Liz, who works for local jurisdiction, told Bored Panda that the way Monty Python pokes fun at the inefficiency of government is exactly why she loves this sketch.

When asked how did she come up with the idea to recreate the sketch Liz said: “My husband and I were on a quarantine walk with my kids biking ahead of us and it just sort of came to me”. To make it come to life, the family put up a sign on the sidewalk right in front of their house, which reads as follows: “You have now entered the jurisdiction of silly walks. Commence silly walking immediately.” Finer print reads: “Follow @Yorkshire_Silly_Walks for highlights. Your walk may be posted! We’re all in this together so let’s have some fun while we can! (Don’t know how to silly walk? Google Monty Python Ministry of Silly Walks for inspiration.)”

As it turns out, the neighbors are quite good at silly walking! “My neighbors seem to love it. Some of them walk by more than once a day and make sure to silly walk,” she said. To share the amusing results, Liz created an Instagram account called Yorkshire Silly Walks. Unsurprisingly, people loved the idea and started sharing her videos across various social media platforms.

Despite everything that is going on right not, Liz told us that her family is doing well and she seems to be enjoying this extra free time she has right now. “My husband and I are essential workers so we are fortunate,” she said. “I have more time on my hands to do stuff because we aren’t dealing with two full time employees at work all day, school, homework, extracurriculars and the general craziness of life.”
