Life Irritates Art – `Spamalot’ musical changes Britney lyric

How sad is it when even Monty Python can’t make fun of you anymore?

Britney Spears is out, Posh Spice is in — as a lyric for the Lady in the Lake in the Broadway musical “Monty Python’s Spamalot.”

Asked why the lyric was changed in the song “Diva’s Lament,” “Spamalot” author Eric Idle said Tuesday in an e-mail:

“Because we don’t laugh at sad people. Mike Nichols (the show’s director) requested it and he’s right.”

    THX1138: “Let us be thankful we have commerce. Buy more. Buy more now. Buy more and be happy.”

    Onward through the fog!
