John Cleese explains the brain

Monty Python’s John Cleese does a remarkable job of explaining the human brain.

Cleese is an English actor, comedian, writer, and producer known for his brilliance and wacky sense of humor. He manages to produce a very authentic-sounding lecture in non-English. There is only one complete sentence and it comes at the very end of his lecture.

For even more fun, turn on the closed captioning in YouTube and watch as the computer tries to make sense of him!
