419ers Scambaited Into Recreating Monty Pyton "Dead Parrot" Sketch

These Nigerian 419 scammers sent around an email begging for money because they were dying of cancer and got tricked into recreating the Monty Python “Dead Parrot” sketch. The “victim” on the other side was actually a scambaiter, a person who gets their rocks off by wasting email scammer’s time and making them perform ridiculous and humiliating acts.

What’s interesting is that the “dead parrot” they use is actually a metal duck. Once a scammer, always. — BEN POPKEN

    I love it!

    My question… did they have the sketch memorized already? Or did they actively memorize it?

    I know they’re vile for trying to scam people, but this just proves how sad they really are.

    Didn’t we learn anything from “The King of Comedy?” They’re probably going to get their own show.

    That was great. They did a pretty good job, seein’ as how English isn’t their native language.

  7. Panhandler says:

    They DID do a great job – maybe they’ve bootstrapped their way into legitimate global careers as Comedy Re-Creationists!

    Actually, English is the official language of Nigeria as it was under British occupation until 1960.

    The scambaiter who got them to do this has to go down in history as the best ever…

    Meh. OK, but it’s funnier when they tattoo themselves. Or dress in diapers and stroll around Lagos.
