Peter Sellers Would Be Way Too Old Today…or: How I Learned To Stop Complaining and Love my Inner Bum…

By Jean-Pierre Ady Fenyo, an admirer and under-study of Peter Sellers.

Peter Sellers was a very sensitive and intelligent man. A lover of life and someone who understood the ‘human condition’ very, very well.

As You know.

Besides the series of ‘Pink Panther’ movies, he also was the star in five of some of my other favourite movies:

“The Party” ( 1968 ).

“Being There” ( 1979 ).

“Dr.. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love….” ( 1963 ).

“Lolita” ( 1962 ).

“The Prisoner of Zenda”. ( 1979 ).

I have studied his style, technique and philosophy of humour very attentively, and consider him my Master-Teacher! Sensei.

I intend to make a movie based on his various characters.

Enjoy these moments too:

“Some of the British used to be very funny, until too many of them forgot how and began to take themselves and their History too seriously! Peter Sellers knew the limits. He was very astute and clever, but never with malice. Today’s British are lost in their own insane quest for their unholy grail of Imperial-ness.”

Jean-Pierre Ady Fenyo, the funniest man alive….maybe…perhaps…maybe not….

Today’s British are mostly very, very harmful and dangerous…not just to me personally, but even to one-another. They think they are superior to others.

Superior?! ¿In what sense?

¿Their ability to fool others? ¿Especially those who make the potentially fatal mistake…one which I made…to think that they have evolved over time?

They have devolved!

When I speak of today’s British, I am not referring to the others.

No. Not the Scottish. The real Scottish are not British!

No. Not the Welsh. The real Welsh are definitely as un-British as they come!

No. Not the Northern Irish. The Northern Irish…most of them…whether Catholic or otherwise…are not really British. And they’re no longer quite truly Irish either. They are constantly Evolving and no one yet knows who they will become next, but may they become the salvation of the British, rather than further victims of the British Imperial Delusionists!

No. Not The Gibraltarians…the Llanitos… They’re mostly Spanish who got caught up in a Historic Episode full of Fortresses, Cannons and Naval Wars!

Ah! Then….

¿! The ENGLiSH !?

Ah….yes….well…NO….not really!

Little known secret ( which I am about to make even less little known by having published this ):

The BRiTiSH are NOT The English!

Even The English are NOT really British!

¿Why? ¿How So?

Shhh….. Let’s keep this secret between ourselves:

The majority of today’s BRiTiSH are GERMANS!

And the Real English ARE NOT Germans!

Probably less than 20% of the people mis-identified as BRiTiSH are truly Les Anglais ‘Angle’ ….Angular…..English!

Those…the 80%….are fools who think they are English!

Germanic Fools!

And many….not all of them Germanen…are making a Royal Mess of The so-called UNiTed ‘Kingdom’.

They’re racist, anti-Semitic, Imperialistic Idyets!

And Peter Sellers would have nothing … NOTHiNG!…nothing to do with THEM!

Peter Sellers has had an immense influence on my works.

My Acting.

My Writing.

My Directing.

My Thinking!

And he was NOT one bit BRiTiSH!

¿ IF you are right about Peter Sellers not being even a tid-bit BRiTiSH; then what was he ?


And so am I.

Here’s to Peter Sellers…the least understood English-speaking, English-Gentlemanly-Thinking, non-BRiTiSH person ever:

YOU: “You sure are one self-promoting BS-Artist! You made us think this would be about Peter Sellers! But…but it’s not! It’s all about you! You! YOU! And you’re not even half as funny as Peter was! Have You no shame?!”

ME: “I guess you will never be able to understand who Peter Sellers really was. How tragic! At least Peter was honest enough to tell the World the following:

Here’s to YOU, Peter Sellers ….
