Monty Python: Hilarious or Rude

Many of the walks in Monty Python's "Ministry of Silly Walks" resembles that of someone with Cerebral Palsy. I have yet to decide if this is downright rude or hilarious.

This article from the UK Comedy Guide talks about the presence of disability in comedy.

What do you think?
Is it okay to use disabilities in comedy?
Does this increase awareness of all kinds of disabilities or is it just plain rude?
