Long DescriptionStill loony after all these years. This volume contains episodes 23 through 26 from the second groundbreaking season of Monty Python's Flying Circus . For discriminating collectors and recent initiates, episode 23 may not show the legendary troupe to its best advantage. But even average Monty Python is funnier and more inventive than, say, a new episode of Saturday Night Live . It does include some cherished bits of Pythonia, including the animated Conrad Poohs and His Dancing Teeth and the Fish License sketch. But the foreign film parody and the epic Scott of the Antarctic are for aficionados only. The final episodes of the second season, however, were fit for the Queen. These three episodes ''give new meaning to the word 'vomit.''' No, wait: That's the ill-advised ad campaign devised by Eric Idle's S. Frog for Conquistador Coffee, a very silly sketch that begins this volume with a jolt of comedic caffeine. Among the ''humorous vignettes and spoofs'' that appear here include classic and cherished bits from the Python pantheon, including an ad for American Defense; the training film How Not to Be Seen ; the alleged Hungarian-English phrasebook; Crackpot Religions, Ltd; World Forum, in which questions about Cup finals stump Marx, Lenin, Chairman Mao, and Che; the Hospital for Over-Acting; the exploding Blue Danube; and the immortal ode to Spam. The season-ending royal episode, which concludes this DVD, is a particular favorite. John Cleese soberly informs viewers that Her Royal Majesty will tune in during the course of the show (she is presently watching The Virginian ). One wonders how she would stomach the Lifeboat and Undertaker cannibalism sketches that inspire the outraged studio audience to rush the stage in mock revolt. --Donald Liebenson

The maxicode barcode is identified by the circular bulls-eye in the center and a matrix of circular dots that make up the data. Unlike many of the other 2D barcodes, this symbology uses a hexagonal grid rather than bars or squares.

Barcode Maxicode

These symbols are always printed as a 1 inch square often found on shipping packages and can store around 93 characters. If more data is needed, up to 8 codes can be chained together and scanned one after the next. The bulls-eye helps the scanner identify the pattern even when packages are streaming by at speed.

There are several modes that these symbols can use. UPS uses mode 2 and 3 on their packages.
