Cleese doesn't mention the war during eye surgery

John Cleese is recovering from eye surgery in the UK.According to Twitter, John Cleese is recovering from successful eye surgery in the U.K.

Following a procedure on his left eye, Cleese handed his Tweets over to a friend, Garry Scott-Irvine. That buddy is keeping fans updated on the Monty Python and Fawlty Towers legend's condition. Fans sent scores of well-wishes to Cleese as he heals up in a British hospital.

The 69-year-old comedian is reportedly in good health otherwise and looking to head home later this week. His chosen method of communication is ironic when you consider Cleese sells a t-shirt on his site entitled: "WTF is Twitter?"

Viewers can actually spot a couple things in the photos. First of all, Cleese is starting to look like a distinguished, elderly British man and less like the insane, wide-eyed comic of ages passed.

And, even treasured celebrities get the same cruddy, Crimean War hospital beds we see on British TV.
