Monty Python Flying Sheep Skit Transcript

So I tried to reproduce Monty Python's Flying Sheep sketch at LanguageCast this evening. Being predominantly a Korean audience no-one really knew about Monty Python, so I decided to post the orginal sketch here. I've also given a transcript as best as I can understand (and uncover from youtube comments). Some of the French is actually nonsense or incomprehensible so I put those parts in gray.

Even if you don't understand French, this skit is still hilarious from an English-speaker's point of view. Ah, classic Python, those where the days...!

A translation from French to English on your site would be helpful too.
