Ah, Howard, your article is as enlightening as it is cautionary, much like the quest for the Holy Grail—highly sought after, yet fraught with peril. Instead of dodging killer rabbits, we're navigating the ethical minefields of AI.

As a comparison, AI and the printing press are like two knights on a quest for the Holy Grail of disruption. We're all holding our breath, waiting for AI to evolve from its 'newt' phase—problematic but not irredeemable—into something that can confidently say, 'I got better.'

Ethical concerns? They're as abundant as coconuts in a Monty Python's calvary. The printing press had its 'fake news' long before it was a hashtag, and AI? Well, let's just say it's got the reliability of a Holy Grail quest—full of promise but watch out for those unexpected twists.

So, what's the game plan? Simple: Be the wise knight who knows when to yell 'Ni!' at the ethical dilemmas that dare cross our path. We've got to make sure AI doesn't become the Black Knight of technology, insisting 'It's just a flesh wound' when it's clearly not ready for prime time.

In conclusion, your article inspired me to write this cheeky Monty Python response. You wrote a cautionary tale we didn't know we needed but absolutely do. It's our collective responsibility to navigate this shrubbery of challenges, armed with nothing but our wits, a wink to the past, and a chuckle-ready vigilance for the road ahead.
