Science Of Silly Walks

This is a great paper in the BMJ (British Medical Journal) on the metabolic effects of adopting the "silly walks" from the classic Monty Python skit.

The Cleese version of the silly walk (Mr. Teabag walk) burns off 2.5x the energy due to "walking inefficiently".  The Palin version (Mr. Putey walk) not so much.
