John Cleese admits he's confused by Facebook

John Cleese doesn't understand Facebook.

The 75-year-old comedian, who is best known as part of the Monty Python group, has admitted he's bemused by certain aspects of modern living and, in particular, the ever-increasing prominence of social networking websites, like Facebook.

He confessed: "I don't begin to understand contemporary society. Nobody has yet been able to explain Facebook to me.

"I just don't know why anybody would do it and that's quite scary because you've got to be in some sort of touch with your audience ... If you don't understand your audience, the best thing to do is get out."

Meanwhile, John recently claimed one of his greatest ambitions in life is to learn to speak German.

He said: "I don't know too many words in German, but my accent is quite good. I had a dream ten years ago that I was in a room with three men wearing gray suits, probably psychiatrists. And just before I woke up, I said to them, my main regret in life is that German is not my first language. At the time it told me that I should take some time off, go to Germany and learn the language properly."
