I posted a video the other day. It was reacting to someone else's video and the video got flagged for nudity and sexual content. I was like, well, it's the original video that I'm reacting to. Is All you see is a picture of the woman's foot because she's like, you know, looking on her phone and her husband comes in the room and ask her question about some shit and I don't know. That's that's a video. And then the other. Then my reaction is just Mike's. So it's flag for nudity and adult or sexual content. So I appeal it. Here's the thing. Can I say one thing? Yeah, Quinn Tarantino Foot Fetish. Quick Action. Now quittin Tarantino works for Tick Tock confirmed. Yeah, welcome to the Basement Lounge podcast with your host Mike Shay and Mike Wells. Sit Back, grab a drink, relax, let's see where the time takes us enjoy. So I appealed it and they came back and said your appeal has been rejected. We find your video contains a violation of the harassment and bullying clause, and I'm like, well, my way. Wait, wait, which one is it? Because you said it was this thing now you're saying it's this thing and he's my videos being fucking taken down. I'm fucking done. That's weird. My third video that has been flagged for this kind of Shit. I forget what the one of them. Forget the other one because I can't. I can't pull up to look at what it is now. But the last one was when I had made some video talking about the pricing of like studio headphones and Shit and how ridiculously over price they were, and somebody was like telling me like I was a fucking idiot and like fucking threatening me and Shit in the comments on the video. So I made a response to his comment telling him to go fuck himself with a pine apple, and my video got taken down for harassment bullying. was like what, here's what you do in this situation every single time. If I ever have anybody come at me, yeah, on anything. Let me see, let me pull see if I can pull it up. M's, I'm glad I've never been heckled because I don't deal well with hecklers. I don't care about like, I don't, and I don't think people know how to take like what what I do. Yeah, I gotta pull up this tweetswee was a little bit ago. Bear with me. My problem with hecklers is I either fold or I get way too mean, way too fast. Iron one time this lady I do my resting mass shooter face joke and everybodys laughing. I wish I still had the audio. Don't have it any more. Say Oh my God, are you serious? And I was like, APPs a fucking lip, and you here like walk off, you like hearing. He's got. People are laughing and you lack a whack off. Here here a walk off, the door like closes, here opening clothes, and I'm like thank you, and everybody laughing again. All right. So here's what I wrote. All right, I was like did hope was witness version of the end where it is happy birthday. This guy's like sick joke man. mentioned be racist, culturally ignorant and wholly unaware of that. One third of a Joe was witnesses are black all and eleven where it's crushing it with your comedy, quote, comedy career. There's your wife. Still Suck at basic math and finance, and I literally this is what I put. You're the best and he has nothing to say after that. I tend to respond to people should like that with wow, I bet your fun parties. Well, I get the thing is like when you go, I don't like if you get him, like, I don't give a shit what you say. Yeah, some guy was literally like what. Some guy was like, you Ri up off all your jokes as like okay, you're the best, prove it, and he never said anything. And like this one. People comment my videos or whatever like you suck, while them like cool thakes man, thumbs up or at Heart Emoji, and they're like what, the flight of the process is like, I'm not getting the reaction I want. Yeah, you can't give him the reaction they want. Ever it. That will the only reason I even respond to this guy's eyes. I made this video where I basically said that, like because, because they were talking about how, I think it was apple was going to be putting out like some new fucking head, those things. They're going to be expensive with balls, and I made a video and I was like you do not. I said, you never need to spend more than a hundred bucks on a decent pair of studio headphones. That you don't. I've been doing this a long fucking time and people were common, all these fucking dickheads that thought like skull candies were the greatest things on the face of your ever coming after me like you know what the fuck your true talking to, brother, you fucking old blue and they were like my fucking wireless noise canceling satellite blue tooth up up cost me two hundred and seventy five bucks in the best headphones ever, and I was like sure, they sound great. You didn't pay for headphones, you paid for features in a brand, you dumb motherfucker. Like if you have, if you own a pair of beats, congratulations, you paid for Dr Drey's name. Yeah, that's what you did. Cong gratuate, fucking like have a part meets no better than any other headphones over and the only reason why I like them is a go in my ear properly right. I don't have the over the ears. I will never pay...

...for those. Those are like I'm like, they're there, there in fine bucks, and also raise my Bo is because I also got like thirty three percent off on my work. I'll there go. Otherwise I would not buy them. Well, I don't. I don't wear earbuds. I have small ears. Earbuds hurt my ears. Plan and simply, I don't only are pods I only use over the year. Headphones like the ones I'm using now. Like I I will wear these when I cut the grass. I just tuned the cord into my pocket. I literally just think I I think I actually wrote something about beats today. No, Shit, yeah, I think I did that. Actually, today beats headphones is just really expensive ear muffs. That's all. It was like. I was just like hum, I don't think I'd written anything, because I'm thinking about my God, Damn, there's so beats are so except mensive. Like most headphones, you are paying for name. Yeah, well, like bows, bow stuff sounds great, but you're paying for the brand. Uh Huh. These these ones. I have our audio technicas. They were ninety bucks and I have four paired here. The you know, the headphones I was using ice. Only reason I stopped using them was because I wanted to order was when we were doing the Valentine's Day life thing and they discontinued that model. So I was like Shit, I need more headphones and I can't buy this pair again. Oh well, because I got to get something new that they they that's it. You spend more than a hunt. The only reason you would want to spend more than a hundred bucks if you're looking for something like a noise canceling or wireless that's going to drive the price up. But in terms of just how good they sound, yeah, you never spend more than hundred bucks playing simple. No, I could totally agree, completely agree. Jeffer. You Watch this guy on Youtube, name it does show called Dame drops. Got His fast food reviews, big honky Black Guy. HMM. He did this review of five guys burghers and fries like way back in the day. That like went viral. Is Fuck because he'd never had five guys before and he had to stick this like fucking religious experience having five guys the first time. Well, now he's got his own show on Netflix of him going around the country like checking out like these fucking dope food places and all that. It's called fresh fried and fresh fried and crispy. It's on Netflix. Cat's kind of rip off a dive in drives. It is. It is a little bit, except for the places he's going or aren't necessarily like like mom and pop. Yeah, he's going to places like like each episode's in a different city, but like one of the places he like, he's looking for like the most like he's looking for like really creative stuff, yeah, as opposed to just like good yeah, also with with biters, drives and dives. He's looking for. He's looking at like all kinds of food affordable. This guy he's going to like he goes to a place where he had that. He goes to place have a burger called the whale burgers. Not I mean at a whale, but it's a hundred and twenty bucks. But they use like they use to wag you beef patties, oh my God, like edible gold flakes, serve with a bottle of champagne. Letter fucking comers. And Yeah, I sus he's looking for like stuff like that. Yeah, but he knew where he went to Cleveland. He did what. Where he went down to Savannah. is so weird, because he can get this like shrimp po boy at this like seafood place and they're watching as like they show you how to like peel the shrimp on all that, but they don't Vane them and never eating shrimp. That's weird. Number One, when you could, when you clean shrimp. Here's a vein in the back of them you have to remove. That's their poop shoot. Okay, so if you don't remove that, you're eating shrimp poop. I've eaten AAs. So I'm watching as they're cutting the SHRIP and they don't show the devaning and I'm like, okay, maybe they just don't show it. Well, then you watch them toss these shrimp into the bathroom. I'm like all those shrimps still have their veins. I am never eating at this place. Yeah, ever, fuck that. If I want my Poopas, I'm never eating shrimp, Dude. Really. Yeah. Ever, I have something about crustaceans that's weird, like lobster and never eating lobster. I'm any lobster, but again for Lobster, Crab Dude. I Love Crab, crab. I've got some shrimp in the freezer and just not I'm a big seafood like I've never been a big seafood dude, and that stuff just kind of creeps at they just look like Idad it. They look like giant fucking bugs. Yeah, they really do. I get it. Look like CICADAS, but under the water it's a case you know, know what I found out is like when the the male cir Kadas make that noise. HMM, yeah, it's just them cat calling pretty much. Yeah, yeah, that's that's. That's there, that's they're come, sit on this Dick, just stream it for hours out on the now I understand why women hate cat cauling, because that shit is fucking well, that's and so people have been able to cut their grass because it's the cave. My mother like was telling me your grass is like half cut, because she would start...

...the Moor and she would just be getting attacked by these things because the vibration in the sound it play said trigger, it triggers. There they're mating. Sense. Got A fuck this. fucking trays former look because, I guess because they are. I got none here. So, like I got my grass Yester Day, no problem. I suppos like our landscape and guys were at work and they were just covered. Oh God, they're having a we're like basically what looked like Hazmat suits where they're cutting the grass, which it was fucking ninety degrees over the weekends. You can imagine how fun that was Ashell. I have one land on me. The other day I flicked it. You know, was like yelled at me. It's at work, like getting out of my car, it's like, okay, you one too, because I parked my car and they are just swarming my fucking because there's there's so many trees at my in my office. So they're just swarming my car. And like walking up the ramp to the door, there's just fucking corpses just everywhere. Do they they reek? Well, I can't smell them. I never notice a smell, but like they just fucking do. They run into the window and I or the fucking die because I dare it. Mean, like I actually want. We weren't looking at cars the other day on Sunday and I was like I here's a lot of fucking sig dead Cicadas, like and you could tell like they weren't like hit by anything, like they had to like run into this window. Sure they do. I'll be at work and I'll have the window here. I'm just going, funk, funk, funk. I don't know what the fuck it is. They're just it's that bug thing where they think they can get through. But whereas, like with a fly, they're so small you can't notice CICADA's actually have like weight to them. Yeah, so you can actually fucking hear it. Bunk. I mean the whole drive to work. It's just my front one shield, just pop, pop, pop, I'm getting shot with a paintball. Guy. I laugh every time, like you're so yeah, kind of see it right before it hits it. So it's like it's I'm just like fuck you, like I've killed many CICADA like I've probably ruined so many first names. I've destroyed so many flies of shame. Like I said, US got it. I'm gonna go somewhere else. This video, this videos online the other day. It was it's God and God does angels creating the animals, and he's like, all right, God, we gotta create, we got to create some more insects today. I'll fuck probably done so much.

Well, it mostly hangs on horses. Horse Fly. Next, what about? What about this one? It flies, son of a bitch. We made a lot of ones a fly. Yeah, a lot of them fly. We'll see. This one's tail lights up, light fly. No, now what else? Lights, fire, firefly. There we go. All right, that's a fun as genius. Yeah, it took a whole series of him just creating shit, like the first ones, him creating man and women, and he's like, all right, so I'll created these two things. One's called man, one's called woman. All right now, one of these guy, one of these, like they're really dumb, just kind of really basic, just, you know, do the one thing and the other one, super complicated and Super Complex, and the and the Guy Angels, like, Oh my God, they're gonna hate each other's like, oh, they're gonna hate each other, but get this, I made it so they also need each other. This way, I I noticed, like me and my wife is talking.

Yeah, like I don't hang my like I hang my toulse on the shower. She like hangs them on like the fucking shower and like the fucking tower rack. I'm like, I don't have a I don't have a like a thing to hang my till the paper on my bathroom. My bathrooms too small. Oh, so I put if I put one anywhere, would just get in the way, so I just sit in on the back of the toilet. But like the cat, like the fuck with it. I'll come home and it will just be on the floor with a bunch of holes and I'm like that's gonna make weapon my ass difficult. And Yeah, finger, White, white. Oh, okay, hello, probably right. I like something never came bore something new about Mike. Okay, see if I can get a fit top of a spook. Yeah, one time I fisted a woman. True Story. This is gonna be why I prey got my wife. This this shit like I had had sex there either. Is The wild thing, really, because usually a really at least fuck someone. First words in his check, right forearm inside me and it's yeah, that's a great segue every time about why I fisted a woman. You were fucking with me. No, we're here.

Yeah, it's like it's having thirty. Well, wow, yeah, she was experienced. I honestly don't know, but whenever we start making out whatever, I'm like we're doing shit and things get whatever. So I got one finger in. Am I okay, that two fingers, I was like that was really easy. I was like three fingers and I was like that was also. Then I'm like four fingers and I'm like, what the all right, that's try the whole. I seriously, I was like, I feel like a Kameha, Kameha this bitch, like it was so weird, man, and she liked it, but I did. I didn't do this. I was a straight fit are going to be like? And she hated it. Now, but shake loved it. I was like okay, and kind of do in that for like a while on all that shit, and I was like this is all right or whatever. Seems like. Well, my Dick's gonna do nothing. Yeah, we never had sex, but she enjoyed it and it's probably the best. I was remember that. So I was like, what the fuck is? It's one of those experiences you just don't forget. Now you're lagging bed for him, you just kind of like I fisted a woman. Yeah, Dude, I don't I don't forgot about that until you were I can't know what triggered that in my head, but I always remember that thinking one finger, two finger, three finger, fourth, up. One. Yeah, the count was in the background. As a really weird episode. Assessed me street. It's like session street, but like casting cowsess the snyder cut of this thing, the slimer cut. God Dude, I don't do that. Was the weirdest fucking thing in my life. I had any think that was possible. I really didn't like as I can't fist to chick doesn't and I fisted a chick. I fisted a chicken. This day I still don't understand why I never took puppeteering as a career. Well, you know, through Christ all things are possible. She was screaming. Oh God. Well, I'm sure one point you were like, Jesus, I will if she's dead. We talked for a little bit after. We never and so weird when never had sex? Just rabber show up? Like now that we've talked about it, it's out there in the ether. She's going to show up as a suggested friend on facebooks. So Weird. Are you fisted me like you're like a grandma. Now I can for the football. I don't remember how old she was. Man, your shoes older than me. I got I prime. God, my wife Never listens to this. She's like Jesus Christ now, Shit. Yeah, this is gonna be next week's episode, just your fisting story, fisting story, like I mean there's there comes a point in a man's life, are you? Like? He looks at the whole, looks at this fifth and he's like, let's make some magic happen. The thing was like I that was not my initial like shooting, like stop, I totally would have stopped. You know what I mean, right, but she was like really into it and I was just like what the fuck is going stinging around. Hold this turns into one of those toys, you know, the ones with the millions of needles. You'd put your face in. Oh my God, your hand, you're just fucking look it's my Han. Oh, I made this weirder. Like you never see the movie aliens? Really, SAM, no, but it's just like I'm like I'll always remember that bedroom. It's always remember that chucky cheese. I was. Remember that WHO's who's like open again, are they were drove pasted. It over there because it's over by where I work. Oh, I forgot that. I forgot those even exists. It just drove past going the speedway and the parking lot was packed and I was like, okay, y'all, covid wasn't that long ago? Yeah, let's all go back in the bullpit. Okay, like, I still like I'm vaccinated. I don't like. If I'm not work, I don't wear my masks. We don't have to here for vaccinated. Yeah, but for the customer wants me to, I do. If I don't have to, I won't, but if they would like me to, I just keep it in my pocket just in case. Wow, I am when I drive door, I still wear it just a because it's got the door logo on it, so fuck it, and it's just, you know, makes people feel better because right out the door to ashtill does the whole like, you know, keep the delivery contactless. But if I don't have to, I don't wear one at work. If I don't have to wear one when I go into this place, I usually don't. I'm I'm vaccinated. I give a fucks. That's how I view it too. is like I'm vaccinated everybody know, I love is vaccinated. So it's kind of like one of those things where, like the people that aren't wearing one that should be vacs that it's basically the rule...

...of the mean, you can't ask somebody if they're vaccinated, right, they can't have it. Prove it. But, like, those are the type of people I like, really like. You're not wearing it, but you're notascinated. You're just a fucking Dick. There's the Dick. It's all well, guy at work with his job is witness. He can so like if it's look against the religion, no matter. They don't do medical treatment unless it's like life or death situation. So he still wears a mask at work because he's not going to get vaccinated, but he still has the fortitude to wear his fucking mask at work, as opposed to there's a guy at work with WHO's not getting vaccinated just because you know from two thousand and twenty and you know doesn't wear his mask, though, but the difference is he walks around bragging about here you're not wearing a mask. I'm not either, but I didn't get vaccinated. Good for you. He really does it. Oh yeah, I would fuck them without a condom. You don't wear a mask, I can fuck you without a condo and I have the herbs. You want to see how this really gets going? Yeah, because by your logic, condoms don't work, so what's The fucking point? Yeah, exactly point. If your mother should have used one. You know, fucking wear a mask. I can fuck you. I'm like tweet that. It's fucking fun. If you're not vaccent, don't wear mask while you're doing that. You know. Hey, shout out to whoever LISA is. Yeah, for the the Nice comment you left on our show the other day. We appreciate that. We like we like work shopping our jokes on the show. It's fun and especially when, you know, when we weren't doing shows, it was good way to not get too rusty. Speaking of shows, for those guys who maybe didn't see the post yet, so we're putting together a comedy show to do here. We're shooting for August and if you guys, but you know, we've got sound equipment, but, like I need chairs and other stuff to get this thing up and running. So if you go to our website, tblpod dotnet, click the button the says support. You can see where it says buy me a coffee. That's the website we're using for this and you can make donations there, however much you want, really doesn't fucking matter. Or just share the link. That's cool too, but just help rate some money so we can get some stuff for this. And there's also a package deal where you can if you donate twenty five dollars, you get two free tickets and free drink for each of you and you get your trying to have concessions at this thing. So if you can do that, it'd be great. We really appreciate it because I think it's going to be a lot of fun. I think we're going to think I'm going to do it on a Sunday where there's not a while. He's Mike Nice, because in that way it's on a weekend. I don't want to do in the middle of the week. No, we're gonna be able to fucking go and figure. I don't want to compe with wanting to have I don't know yet. I'm at that point now. I'm going to I'm going to host it and the first one you want to be on it. Maybe, maybe, maybe, probably, that's fine. Headline, feature, we will do? I don't know. Try to figure out what you want to do in August at Yah. Yeah, yeah, a Sunday night. Like I said, one were while I wasn't doing anything. Unless they go back to do it shows every single week. I guess that's more up to you, isn't it? That is America. Try to think. I mean. I I mean, I wouldn't want to headline. I't want to feature, if anything, because you want. You three hours, so don't you? Yeah, because I want to. I want to be done by I want to be done by eleven at the latest. The thing is, though, you're not gonna be on ten. Well, you can't have like usually like you can't have if you do three hours, each comic hast to an hour. That's right, because I'm only got have free comics. So what? It wouldn't make? Maybe two hours, I guess, because you figure he could do like a cup, like he could do like a host and a couple comics and a headliner. Because I was I was going to do it. YEA, because it could be like. It doesn't necessarily to be the entire Si, you know. I mean, because it was. I was gonna. What's what I was going to do is have the whole night be three hours. have it where it's like, you know, quote unquote, doors open it like yeah, as seriously, and have it because I figure maybe have the grill going, people can have burgers or whatever, do it kind of cookout style if they want to just hang out for a little bit. And then because I might have brandon combs do some DJ stuff because he's been asking me about it. But and then maybe start at like nine, because you figure two hours. That's time for a host to go up open her feature and then let the headliner do an hour. Trying to think it it's got to fear about asking dusty. He can't do an hour. Not, I'm not the headline. Oh, I don't know who I would get to do an hour other than maybe Ray Jackson, just only because I've seen him do a Jesse could do an hour. Yes, Jesse could totally do an hour. About Brett R? I could do an hour. Is He headlined? While he's up sidelining way I headline Sunday's headlining this weekend. Yeah, so you can totally do it. Oh, yeah, you can do an hour. So, but yeah, I want I thought dusty would be. I thought dusty would probably want to maybe open her feature. I was going to ask you, since you know. Obviously never I can do whatever. Try to think that should be. Trying to think of the anybody from out of town. Joe, Jody McDermott said she was interested and she's kind of out of town,...

...out I mean she's up in, which you call it. That's saying Teleta, but it's not to Leo. Trying about. You want to say Troy. That's my big name comic from out of town. Um, I don't know. Well, because I know because in July I'm going up to Cuyahoga to go see Michelle and Doug Bass or doing a show there, like I told you about that last week. HMM, but they're going to be on the road that point. There's no way, and I part of the reason want to raise money is because I do want to pay the comics. But that's going to put on how much money we raise and get it in, because I'm going to charge. I'm going to charge with tickets like five bucks, so I don't pend how much you make at the door. The door will be a table in my driveway. Is Ore. I see, you could throw like it depends on you, but you could tear like the best of local comp comedy, like all the best locals like not just do like a through. I mean that's like says, cut it, it's your show by like. That's my first time doing this shit, so I'm don't necessarily when it comes to stuff like this. I will tell you this. A lot of times shown the you could do host feature, headliner, host feature or host, guest set, blah, Blah Blah. But what you could do is like a bunch of twenty, like a bunch of people doing like ten to fifteen. I thought about that. With this being the first one, I wanted to just do it a little more soble makes sense, a little more civil. If it's something I'm able to do recurring, then doing it more showcase style, kind of like the Sunday comics, is definitely something I wouldn't mind do it either. But I got us. I want to see how how well I can get people to turn out for this thing, just with like promoting. It's just like a straight show. Uh Huh? So nighting, immy, you can. There's plenty of talent sipule from locally. Yeah, absolutely, I was going to reach out to Dan Seabreez see ipanos, and he's a Lumbus. Well, I'm just seem a because he because I had asked him about some some tips for this kind of thing already. So I'm CEP knows. Anybody could reach out there. It's a good dude. Yeah, like Dan, fuck mean wild because what's your face comes in town every now. I would never happen, but if you can get up best selling, because she's all gonna be funny. It would never ever happen. But I'll they I'm thinking about because Whitney Cummings and Taylor time on center both going to the Agora here like in the next few months to for some of their rest coches like show. But by the way, could you come to a show at my garage? Some people did. Dude, I've done a show Mark Norman at a in a fucking apartment. That's fucking crazy, like fucking girl. I was on a show of Martin Norman in an apartment. That's so funny. It's like one of my favorite comics. That's so fucking funny. Holy Shit, it's weird. But that was seabreeze super dope show. Yeah, that's gonna see. That's got a lot of fucking plus that that super dope show's got so much clout to it. Now, no, now, yeah, but like was this like the early days? I was like two or three years in the comedy. Okay, like fucking Mark Norman's on that. Like what's crazy? Markin was fun. Mark Olmert wasn't big van like he was touring. What he was Shumers Open Amy, shoomers opener. Okay, by like he wasn't like big big yet, but like comics knew who he was. Right. Yeah, and then we're like what the fuck? I'm like, how the fuck am I on this show of Mark Norman? That every time the time I got the open for Ralphie Mayben. Never met him. Now. So the comedy club that was down in Columbia, South Carolina, the comedy as theater Ralphie may was doing and they pulled a couple of locals to do like they like three or four of us doing like five or six minutes a piece at the top of the show and then the actual show started. But the comedy Offs Theater in South Carolina, and I don't mind saying this, they can go fuck those elves are one of the shittiest and point most poorly run clubs in the fucking East Coast, because that's all I know. They made us leave before Ralphie man is people got there. Serious they kept US separate from them. Wonder why they're oh, they're commy aft here is a bunch of dicks. It's well, it's very poorly run, because I heard he's like one of the nicest people. Yeah, that's what I was looking forward to as a huge Ralph you may fan. And they were like no, you guys are not there like you. They literally told us, like you're not bothering the talent. I was like, I'm performing, you fucking kind like yeah, technically I'm the talent grand and I'm nineteen and don't know what the fuck I'm doing. But it was fucking hatter. Yes, I was. I was. We were all pissed off. We were all just kind of like, are you fucking kidding me? What the fuck is this shit? Yeah, so that was that was annoying as fuck, but I would, I would fucking poop and stage. Oh my God. Well, two years ago I was we we're running a story and on the news it was about a comedy club where a fight broke out and I was watching. I was like this, this room looks familiar. It was that fucking room. Serious. Yeah, there was a huge it was if somebody got a video this huge fight that broke out. This guy was guy, I forget who was performing, but he was doing fine, but was some guy. The audience just didn't fucking like him and the comic was telling him just fuck off and get out the show with. The dude charge the stage and grabbed the MIC stand and was like...

...swinging it out him and shit. And I think I seen that video. Yeah, we had a running the story about it. I was kind of like, Oh wow, cool. I didn't get to meet Ralphie May when I opened for it. When I opened for him there, always kyle went somebody like shoot me on stage twice. Fend somebody so much that like I get shot and killed. Proving my point of this of like gun control. I had no good gun control, like no gun control jokes right, but I just pick I got shot. This is why I prefer gun control. That's like all my head. Like, if I ever die, I want to be shot like shine and kill you ever die in blind as a chance you might never die, if I ever, but how I want to die, as I want to be shot like on stage, like just like, not accidental, like some guys want to be assassinated on stage by it, got by guns, because I got this is, you know, I've got in control. Boom, motherfucker. I'M A fan. Like what better way and worse way? Like what way to prove a point? Well, I say it earlier. When it comes to hecklar was like I either fold or get to mean too fast. And there was one time I got to me and I pissed a dude off, something fears, and he came up on stage and, like you can see, like security was like on their way up and I was like look, Dude, one of two things are going to happen here. Either you're going to walk off this stage and leave me alone and then I fucking win, or you're going to punch me and everyone's going to feel bad for me and I fucking win. I I call it. He come one time on stage. Did you really? I was doing a fucking contest. She did not heckle anybody the entire show. Oh Shit, she heckled me and I ignored it. She hackle and I was murdering. Dude, I'm not, I'm I don't like say when I do well, but I was doing really I was murdering. And I also and she's like she's Wont Shut Up, and I I play. I say, Hey, can you be quite, be quiet, like I did it once. She said something and I was like hey, bla, blah, and she's just something. I say and listen, this fucking cunt right over here lost the audience for thirty seconds. Oh, I got him right back. I am winning the contest. That's funny shit. But like, she was like. I was just like what, like in my head I'm thinking, like you did at heckle anybody. And actually somebody went up to her like don't, like, this is a contest. Why are you? Yeah, like you don't do it on a regular night, but I'll do it during a fucking content, like. And then the thing was my buddy Carlin, and even said he's like, you didn't heckle anybody else because she didn't like one of my jokes. Like and Shocker, she tried to talk to me afterwards about watching it, and I is she try a friend me on facebook? No, I was like, what the then you married her. What the fuck it? My wife was passed, like we were. I know I was pissed off. At least. She was like why the fuck it's she doing this? But now I was just like sitting. I'm like why? I like, I can't know what joke it was. She thought, because about is about my wife, that my ex Efe that cheated on me. MMM. Like, she's like you can't say that, like I made fun of my I was like well, first off, like it's all fucking true, right, like this isn't, like she's like, I just feel like you're very like mean about your I is like mean about your x or Xife or something. That's like wow, first off, like everything I did about that is fucking it's not. This happened. Yeah, this is legit. Like fuck her. I had a friend's wife who she wouldn't come to any of my comedy show that he shows. I was on and I asked him. I was like, why won't she come? He's like he she thinks that you're your jokes about your dating life or sexist and against women. I was like, well, I've only ever dated women. So, yeah, the jokes I tell about the women I dated aren't going to paint them in a good fucking light. That's why I'm telling them and that, like I've you got an argue with something about this. Like I don't care, like personally, you can make fun of whatever you want, like it's never bug me at all. Yeah, I mean fun a race, religion, whatever, sexual orientation, like. That's never bug me. Just make it funny. Yeah, like there's difference between trying to like, trying to make a joke funny and just saying something to be mean. Oh, a hundred percent. As a comic, he get okay, like whatever. He try to make that funny. It didn't work. Blah, blah, blah. As long as as long as you, as long as the comic recognizes it didn't work and moves the fuck on. Well, remember what's a Shang Gillis? Was Shane Gillis. I got terminated from us. And though, yeah, for the Chinese stuff, yes, and like, yeah, saying some racial stuff about Chinese people, and it really wasn't. I can remember what he said and it wasn't about that. It wasn't even about what what he did or anything else. sarily part of it was like he was doing. The accident was stereotypes. Yeah, well, my thing was this. I was like, okay, fine, like I get that person is a bug me now. Yeah, but when like a black guy or Mexican do or whatever,...

...when they do hypothetically, if that black guy would do a Mexican voice, it's the same thing. Yeah, or for a racist, it's all racist. But what is it? Why is this bug you and not this? Like if my argument was like if you're going to come after somebody about that, yeah, you have to go after people about that at and I get the logic behind like why? For? Because my thing is none of it bugs me. Right. Yeah, it's having to understand the logic of it. I mean I understand the logic of it. Is Because, out of all the races, only the white ones started the KKK. Yeah, so, yeah, I get it. But also with that, with that, with with with what Shane did, it also just wasn't funny. No, it was absolutely it wasn't funny. It all just wasn't funny. But my thing was, there is this, like my whole point, what I said was, don't be surprised if, down the road, people come after you for doing that exact thing. Yeah, that was my whole point. Don't be surprised. Yeah, because if it's happening there, it's going to happen somewhere else, and absolutely well. I mean we've already seen zemblances of that with, like, with what happened with Kevin Hart. Yeah, and with the Oscars. We're already starting to see that kind of thing. I got ridiculed like I didn't understand racism. I'm like, I get it, like you're not getting my point at point is like, if you draw the line there, it's a very it's gonna that. Lyne is going to continue to move and move, yeah, and move, like with anything, get the conversation becaumes is blank racist. Yeah, and the day will come where someone else's, someone else's number will be up, and that does my whole way. Don't be surprised if, like mexic comic, Asian comic, like black comic, female male, like I not like female, Middle Eastern comic of that, if they get in trouble for the same thing. Do not be surprised if they, like if a Middle Eastern made fun of like a black person or like, you know what I mean. Like, don't be surprised that happens. No, yeah, the funnier it is, the the more protection you probably have. Yeah, yeah, for sure, like you know, like they're there. May and probably will come a day where people are going to look back on Chappelle show unfavorably. Oh, easily, and it's so fucking funny. What Dave Chappelle was so funny and beloved. It's gonna be a while. Well, they fucking in. The weird thing is like he got so much shit for sticks and stones like that make a fun of trans he really wasn't make a fun of Trans if you watched it, I see it's a lot. I haven't watched that. I'm say, I'm like, this is not making fun of Trans People at all and it is whole bit about the Lbgtq community sitting in a driving a car and like if you talk to any gay person by or whatever, like like any of my friend, they that was like yeah, that's all accurate. Right, it goes us like it was funny, but like they had so mike that he doesn't hate train. Like you're literally like, if you listen to if you watched any of it, you're like now, this is not making fun of Trans at all and sound not making fun of Trans but you took one episode from some dude on twitter and it was like yeah, make a fun train, like did you even listen to it? Well, and there's there's this there's this general misconception that if something is an element of a joke, that means you're making fun of it, and it's like no, that's not. You're taking all of your taking one aspect of humor and applying it to all of humor. I will always remember when I said the word rape and a joke. It wasn't even a rape joke, but like I had to say the word rape. Yeah, I was just trying to work something out, and nothing to do with the Rape Joe and nothing to do really rape in general. I just the word was in the actual joke right, and some lady came up to me afterwards and I was like that's a horrible way. I'm like, what are you talking about? Wasn't a rape joke. MM. She's like yeah, I was just like, did you even listen to it right? She's like yeah, it was a rape as I know you didn't. Let's do it. I was like we're done having this conversation. You heard that word rape and just assumed we're done. That happened with Ron White's third special third yeah, and he was talking about going on this honeymoon with his with his wife, and how there was this guy he met on their cruise who just like would not stop talking to him. He's like, this guy told me his entire life story. Against My will, this man raped my ear. This man forcibly shoved unwanted information into my ear. Whole no means no. And people were given him shit, saying he was making fun of rape, and he was like that's not even remotely what was happening in that joke at all. Just because it's saying that just because, like a certain worder concept is a part of a joke doesn't not mean it is the butt of that Joe Exactly. Comedy is a lot more complex than that. Yeah, we are not. And what ear tastes me is like when I make something about fun, about my personal life that's real, and people get offend him, like that's my life. Well, that's the exactly what...

I said to my buddy, his wife about is. I was like, I'm not making up stories, about to say that, like all women's like, no, these are the women I've these are the experiences I've had with women. I'm making light of those instances. Not Saying all women are bitches. I'm saying these women were bitches. The woman that tried to grab my Dick when I told her I didn't want her to grab my Dick was a bitch exactly. And you are. That's just ear. Takes the fuck out of me when they like so we're saying. is how I dealt with us. This is not I'm not saying this is like therapy. Yeah, but it is. I wanted to make fun of like a situation a bug me. Yeah, and that's why I make fune like I made for my dad, who's hell don't know, is in a wheelchair, but he's the biggest fucking asshole alive. Right, I've always said God, I I don't even believe in God, but as like as a kid has, a guy put you in a wheelchair for a reason. He knew you'd be an asshole because if you weren't about or you'd be fucking Adolf Hitler. Yeah, like and like. People are like you can't say that about people. I think that's my fucking Dad, right, you don't, you be only wheel sure, go there. That happened with once. So one of my exgirlfriends died in a car accident like years after we broken up. She was abusive as fucked to me the whole time we'd dated and like it is, it is wellknown and documented that like like she fucking she hit me, like publicly humiliated me, like she was a fucking cut to me. After she died, people were coming to me asking me how I felt and I said I don't care. Yeah, I don't care. Am I glad she's dead? No, because I you know what I had heard. She had gotten her shit together after we broke up and had a baby, was getting married, and I was like no, it. I'm sorry for her family and the people that knew her and loved her that she has gone. I don't care. And they're like you can't, you can't just let this go. No, because her dying doesn't change what she did to me. Yeah, you know, somebody being in a wheelchair or having a disability or something or whatever doesn't excuse them from being a Dick. Yeah, exactly. So if someone's a Dick to me, I don't care. I don't care if there are protected class on a human resources form, if they're being a cunt. There being a cut. I'm sorry, that's a it's true, though, like I saw there's that. I think I saw it. I think I saw it on a meme about it. It's like Stewie sitting an HR department and seriously, do have anything to say? He's like, well, I'm trans in. The person's like well, you on HR? Yeah, I remember that one. It was because, like Peter was like working from home or some shit it and Lois came and gave him a kiss. He reporter to hr saying he was like I was an unsafe work environment. I guess in there I'm like that's a if you're a bit or asshole. Yeah, you're an asshole. Like, I'm sorry, like just because your part of something, as I mean, like Brad Williams was talking about that when I saw him in Columbus. He was making fun of Caitlyn Jenner and people were like, they're like, Oh, you can't make pun of Caitlyn Jennery's I guess I can. Just because she's changed under doesn't mean she's not an asshole exactly. She also killed a person. Brought up. He's like she kills somebody. Yeah, sorry, your special situation doesn't make use you from being in not be an asshole exactly in it. It. Yeah, it pisses me off that I am pisses me. It doesn't Piss me off. It's more or less just like just because I exhausts me. It's almost like untouchable. Like yeah, I'm like, if a person's asshole there an asshole. I don't care racialision, sexual orientation, year, if you're an asshole on a piece of shit as shit. My little brother was five years old and was being a knocks. A little five year old, and my dad found the one. They was like, Connor, stop being such an asshole. My mom was like you can't call him an asshole. I was like mom, if that was anyone else's kid, we'd be calling him an asshole. Yeah, okay, because he's five years old doesn't mean my kids an asshole. Oh my God, I'm a call wife. Apply come on, that shit too. Stop being an asshole like your father. Pretty much you're gonna be like I've taught you. Well, I just I guess the thing as like, I think as a world, as a society, like you can't go out. It's even about going after certain people. People think you're going after somebody because of whatever they are, but realistically, if that person just try to like basically fuck over your life or whatever, like, what's wrong with being like mad at them? Yeah, but then you look like a Dick because they're going to assume that you're mad at them because they're gay or what. I'm like, no, like I'm mad at them because stab my brother. Hmm, you know what I mean. There's a lady, lady at work, I think. I don't think I've told you about her, the one that was coming after my job. They got me in trouble. Yeah, bossible. Am I glad she them? I glad she's Gone Alps a fucking littlely and the group. You don't like having a black woman? No, I...

...don't like having a bitch that tried to get me fired. Yeah, fuck her. No, who would tell me she thought I was the coolest person ever, but behind my back was like, we're, you know, making up Shit, until telling hr I was doing all this shit I wasn't doing and almost got me, got me fucking fired. I'll fuck her all, dude. I got somebody not fired. I didn't get some ever fired, but we had my old job and Ryans admobile. Hmm, I work there as soon as its lady, like me and her in the same position, like we're both trying to become managers. Like surprisingly, look in the camera right now. It's rights. One point in time I wanted to work corporate, move up the ladder. You. Yeah, I don't know what changed. I realize, like that's not my mos doing drugs Um but soon as she came in, like we're both not fighting for this position, border mansion trainings, but blah, like this really pull people. Yeah, soon as I came in I knew something was up with her, like something did not click outside, like my old job, I could pick up on people like this, like because the work security forever. Yeah, something seem right. So I came up with a lie and if it would get back to everybody, and within like a day it came back. No Shit. Yeah, I was like wow, I went to my boss. I was like, Scott, she's a snake. Yeah, she's trying to get everybody fired, everybody, and she tried to get she try to get everybody fired. She took a private conversation me and my buddy were having outside. MMM, off the clock, out of work, off the clock and try to get me fired for it. MMM, because I was like it's just sound really fucked up. My my buddy, me and my buddy like really a friend of mine, Daniel, is as Middle Eastern and we took around shit all the time. As I can't remember what he said, I was like, Oh, so you gonna do is like where are you at one of those like what did I say? I was just like because he was making fun of like und eleven or something, because we're both really fucked up sense of humor. Sure, and I was like what were you late to work yesterday? Because one of those beheading videos? Ha Ha ha, ha ha ha. He was like cheat and he's a certain laughing or whatever that has like. You know, I'd never mind, I thought, I thought I saw. You know what I'm going to do. I'm going to fucking knock your eye on skull fuck the shit out of here right now, right like. I don't like. We didn't even know she was around. And this Keymond is also off the clock. We are not even in uniform. Right outside the building shifts over because we're all going to go out, and she took that the HR no shit, and we don't even know she was an area. So I have to explain to hr right, my district manager and HR manager, what's skull fucking is. How was it? Don't you know what you're talking about? Like, like, I really don't know what you're talking about. It's like Brett cows, like, excuse me, what is skull fucking? It's like Brett Calvim out there, like can you explain what a Devil's triangle is? A drinking game, and I'm a center. I'm like and I got me. That got me actually kicked out of the manager and Training Program Fuck off. Really. Yeah, Oh my God, but I knew, like I was like this ladies a snake, like the lazy snake. I knew that for a fact. But you know what, I think that's also telling of what they were looking for in that management training program it's like if a conversation you had privately off the clock, out of uniform was going to was going to affect your job, probably not for you. One of the thing was to see. The funny thing was, at that that woman I end up also getting fired for. They finally really caught on her. People like that are always, always end up like getting fired because they're the ones who were actually up to shit. Yeah, they fight caught up tresham getting fired, so it's gotta Fuck.
