Quote of the Day: John Cleese on His Relationship with His Mother

Former Monty Python star John Cleese, who will be providing the voice for Cameron Diaz‘s father in Shrek 2, to the Calgary Sun on his relationship with his mother:

“My mother died at the age of 101 just 18 months ago. She would ring me up and tell me how bad her life was going.
When you’re 90-something, it’s not that much fun. So I told her if it gets too bad, that I know a man…I can telephone him up and he can come down and kill you. There was a silence and she started hooting with laughter.”
