Neil Hamburger on Dogs

Amy Schumer on Regretful Hookups

“I made out with a homeless guy by accident. I had no idea. He was really tan. He had no shoes on. I just thought it was, like, his thang. I was like, ‘He’s probably in a band.’”

George Carlin on Irony

“Irony deals with opposites; it has nothing to do with coincidence. If two baseball players from the same hometown, on different teams, receive the same uniform number, it is not ironic. It is a coincidence. If Barry Bonds attains lifetime statistics identical to his father’s, it will not be ironic; it will be a coincidence. Irony is ‘a state of affairs that is the reverse of what was to be expected; a result opposite to and in mockery of the appropriate result.’ For instance, a diabetic, on his way to buy insulin, is killed by a runaway truck. He is the victim of an accident. If the truck was delivering sugar, he is the victim of an oddly poetic coincidence. But if the truck was delivering insulin, then he is the victim of an irony.”

Ron Funches on Pro Wrestling

“I love wrestling; it’s the best. People try to make you feel stupid for liking it. They’re like, ‘Hey, you know the thing that you love with the pageantry and the fireworks and the golden belts? It’s fake.’ What type of psychopath would I have to be if I wanted it to be real? Oh, you mean the thing where people have minor disagreements, so they bodyslam each other? And there’s a guy that carries around a snake in a bag that he uses to bite his enemies, but it won’t work against The Undertaker because he ain’t got no blood? You’re telling me that’s not on the up-and-up?”

Anthony Rodia on Skip-It

Nore Davis on Teacher Retirement

“When somebody from the NBA retires, their jersey is in the rafters, and they’re like, ‘I had a good time, thank you for the career, goodnight!’ When a teacher retires, they’re just like, ‘I’m done! That’s it!’ Do you want a party? ‘No! This never happened! Fuck those kids! I’m ghost!’”

Jim Gaffigan on Dreams

Jaboukie Young-White on Health Insurance
