The Real Reason John Cleese Doesn’t Have A Fan Club

One fan got the answer in the most awesome letter exchange ever.

1. John Cleese is not only a comedy icon…

2. …but also an international treasure.

3. So he deserves a proper fan club, right?

4. Well, one fan dared to ask why he didn’t have one and the dark secret came out…

5. …they were all murdered, and by the fan club for his fellow Monty Python member, Michael Palin, no less

6. But according to Michael Palin, who put a follow-up letter up on Twitter, it wasn’t a murder, it was actually a mercy killing for “poor deluded victims.”

And here is Michael Palin's follow up letter. #MontyPythonLive

7. RIP John Cleese fan club, you fought the good fight!
