The Ministry of Funny Walks

While we were in Athens, we visited the Ministry of Funny Walks. Okay, not really. The video below is the Changing of the Guard in front of the Greek Parliament in Athens. It happens every hour on the hour, 24/7. The uniform is unique and derives from a historical time when the Greeks defended their land against the Ottomans. The first part is their actual walking speed. Then we sped it up for our ADD friends. The real question: Is this where Monty Python got the idea for the Funny Walks skit?
