During the "Flying Sheep" sketch, two French experts on "ovine aviation" share one mustache between them, which is worn by whichever expert happens to be giving the lecture at the time. At one point, Michael Palin takes off the mustache and puts it back on John Cleese. In order to hide his laughter, he turns away from the camera immediately afterward. See more
It's my belief that these sheep are laborin' under the misapprehension that they're birds. Observe their be'avior. Take for a start the sheeps' tendency to 'op about the field on their 'ind legs. Now witness their attempts to fly from tree to tree. Notice that they do not so much fly as... plummet.
