I see Handler liking Monty Python, I mean his humor...just seems the same kinda. Like the deja vu thing. That was in a Monty Python skit as well... Hmm...Monty Python/ASOUE crossover....hehehe. That would be cool.

I can imagine Daniel liking Python, too. I wouldn't be surprised. But where does Josephine come from?
I'd assume "H.M.S. Pinafore", or "The Lass that Loved a Sailor". Josephine was the Captain's Daughter who fell in love with a ship's hand named Ralph (Pronounced "Rafe"). Sort of a nautical theme there.
Yeah, I remember when I saw Monty's name and how he worked with snakes, something clicked.
And that would be great.
(Monty bursts in): I'm not dead yet! I feel happy!

As some people are, I'm expecting Monty to apeer again and say, "I'm not dead yet!" It'd be cool. But, wouldn't someone notice if Monty's body was gone? Because, it doesn't say they buried him or anything. So its not like he could rise from the grave, though that also puts out the whole being buried alive thing. But if Monty wasn't dead, then that means it was a sleeping-type potion like in Romeo & Juilet. When the nurse and all discover Juilet "dead", they put her in the tomb and such. Then she wakes up, blah blah blah, you know the story. So maybe, after everyone left and a few moments pass, Monty woke up from the sleep and went somewhere I guess. But where? And has I say before, wouldn't someone see that the body's gone. Like when they come to take his body to the graveyard and it's gone? Wouldn't Monty maybe be seen on the streets? Maybe some people will think it's a ghost, like in TEE, when the Baudelaires went through the secret passage and such.
(Wow, hadn't had a long ASoUE post in a long time)

I think Quidditch suggests Aunt Josephine is from Anne of Green Gables. I haven't read that book in a while but she's the old fuddy duddy aunt of Anne's friend, right? I never connected her to ASOUE because our Josephine never actually connects with the Baudelaires as L.M. Montgomery's Josephine connects with Anne.
Your connections make more sense but for some reason (more of an irrational connection) I connect Josephine with Napoleon's Josephine.
That's where I thought Josephine came from too.
I just found this love letter from Napoleon to Josephine. It mentions serpents.
