Terry Jones Discusses Playing Mr. Creosote In The Meaning Of Life

The Monty Python crew have created some incredibly memorable characters over the years, complete with silly catchphrases and costumes, but one giant slab of man sticks out more than most- Mr. Creosote from Monty Python's The Meaning Of Life.

Mr. Creosote is an enormous glutton who keeps eating until he literally explodes, and since it was all done with practical effects it took a team of makeup effects artists, an inflatable body and a vomit catapult to complete the effect.

It sounds like Terry had fun playing the role, but that's a hard scene to watch without forever losing your appetite.
