I really liked this and just found it funny. This is in fact different than the Dead Parrot Sketch. Then again, maybe it's just been too long since I've seen it. Of course we know what Monty Python is! I think it's even more popular in foreign countries. I like clay.
It's great to know there are a lot of people working with this style. It seems to have died out. The foot at the end really did make sense. It was better with the context here. I don't think it was an April Fool's joke.
