Beware: The punishment for lighting the grail-shaped beacon is spankings, lots of spankings. After the first grail-lighter gets her spankings, the others must be spanked too. And after those spankings, the oral sex, at least by Monty Python punishment standards. When Dingo realizes Zoot, her twin sister and co-leader of the maidens in the Castle Anthrax, lit the beacon, actress Carol "Cleavage" Cleveland made Monty Python history. Welcome the original buxom blonde wench from England as she guest stars in the British Emporium's Monty Python's Life of Carol 7 p.m. Sunday at the Palace Theatre in downtown Grapevine. The show promises an unforgettable evening filled with rare footage and hilarious stories about working with the Pythons--plus, a question and answer session. Carol, known as "the girl Python," started out in the first Monty Python's Flying Circus episode and appeared in two-thirds of the original 45 shows and nearly every Python film and stage show that followed. And now for something completely different, Carol is making this special appearance as part of Grapevine's annual Monty Python Madness charity event benefiting GRACE Grapevine. Tickets are $25 for adults and $15 for seniors and students.
