The 'is what it is' in Monty Python is in the Miss Anne Elk's Theory on
Brontosauruses sketch, transcribed pretty well, I think, here:


The relevant line by Anne:

...All brontosauruses are thin at one end; much, much thicker in the
   middle and then thin again at the far end. That is the theory that I
   have and which is mine and what it is, too.
