* OverlyLongGag: The song "I Like Traffic Lights" from ''AudioPlay/MontyPythonsContractualObligationAlbum'', which is just Jones singing this phrase over and over again, with occasional extra lines such as "but not when they are red". The song ends [[spoiler: with Jones eventually succombing to the imbecility of it all, by sighing: "Oh God..."]]
