This country is pretty perverted.

We have to jack off to everything.

There's not sex and then everything.

Sex is in everything.

You watch the news and

there's a woman telling you,

"And in Libya..."

Yeah tell me about Libya.

F***ing tell me about Libya.

Say, "Libya" again.

Come on, f***ing right up to

the screen, on my flatscreen.

Come on, say, "Libya" again.


It should just be a person,

"In Libya..." or whatever.

Why does it all have

to be so sexualized?

And music, every

musician is attractive.

Isn't that a weird coincidence

that everyone who can play

music also looks good?

I would have thought there'd

be one ugly guy with a guitar

who would be amazing.

But, f***ing zero.

And there's teen pop idols

who are children.

And they're on TV going--

It's a kid

and folks are jacking off to them.


Just "Folks" are jacking off.

[singing] Well, folks are jacking

off to the girls on TV.

Some of them are really young.

I don't know their names.

I don't have that

knowledge anymore.

I'm too old.

When I think of a teen idol,

there's Britney Spears.

Because she's my age now.

That's how long ago that was.

She caught up to me.

When I was 35, she was 18.

And now we're both 44 years old.

So that's how little I know about

who these people are.

I was thinking the other day,

what if there was a

baby who was born

and there's been a lot of f***ed up

babies, all kinds of babies born.

There's been babies

connected at the face,

to a dog or whatever,

babies with three legs,

with hands on them.

There's been

Chinese babies.


Okay, that's--

That's the worst thing I ever said.

I think I just finally said

the worst thing I have ever said.

That was totally

unredeeming and horrible.

And it feels good.
