Will High school freshmen understand a Monty Python joke?

I have to teach a Freshman history class about Spain in the 14th-16th century.  This is when the Spanish Inquisition happened, so I want to play ten seconds of the famous Monty Python clip "NO ONE EXPECTS THE SPANISH INQUISITION!"  The problem is that they are 14 years old.  So will they get it?  Or am I just getting really old?

I would get it, but I don't think most freshmen would. Do it anyway.

You need to think in high school freshman terms.

Monty Python = Monty Python and the Holy Grail

The Flying Circus is nothing but two words to them.

I advise you just yell at them a lot and make no attempts at humor.

I would definitely go ahead and say no.

Unless its something like "its only a flesh wound" nobody will get it.

However if its an audio clip then by all means go ahead and play it. Our small attention spans dig that poo poo up like crazy. Hell throw in some strobe lights and an accompying video and  :roddy:

Actually no, Peggy Hill once referenced the Spanish Inquisition in one episode. Actually I don't know if she even used the Python reference. Actually disregard this I need to go watch more King of the Hill. :roddy:

No they wouldn't. 14-year-olds are stoopid.

I love Ducis so much, and I'm willing to bet that most kids won't get it, but I'd go for it anyway.

No, freshman won't get it.

You need to play Spongebob non-heterosexual personpants or something from BET.
