Humanity has placed one sole directly in front of the other, stepping from place to place, without innovation, bored, since we first stood up erect.
Walking — Jesus, Caesar, Napoleon, Gandhi, Bush, Princess Diana.
You, and me.
Step by step.
That is, of course, until John Cleese.
This short video clip, social commentary aside, has served as a source of laughter and inspiration to me since the first time I watched it together with my father, a little over 10 years ago. As Cleese duck-waddles, meanders, bobbles, and roll-steps across the screen, like a cross between a penguin on LSD and a cha-cha maestro, he compels us to think twice about how we get to where we’re going.
