William Topaz McGonagall, who died in 1902, is widely regarded as the worst poet ever to write in the English language. On March 19, 2011 his poem "Stirling Castle" had its first public performance in more than 100 years, in a ceremony at the University of Dundee, Scotland. In this video, Terry Jones, an original Monty Python, gives the poem its first public reading outside Scotland.
