Poothrow Hitler is not your butler
John Oliver sometimes interviews notably smart or accomplished people on Last Week Tonight. On Sunday's show, he featured Dr. Jane Goodall on his "Great Minds: People Who Think Good" series. Oliver never quite brings his interviews to a Zach Galifianakis/Between Two Ferns level of awkwardness, but he does like to gently press buttons. "You never put a hat on a chimpanzee? I refuse to believe that," Oliver told Goodall at one point, earning a gentle "Then we shall disagree for the rest of our lives" from the famous primate researcher.
Goodall taught Oliver some simple chimpanzee communication sounds and gestures — enough to get into a brief chimp fight — and how a chimp eats a banana. Oliver threw out some ridiculous chimp names, and it turns out they both think "Poothrow Hitler" is a fine one. Who knew? --Peter Weber
