So if you want to talk,

go someplace else, okay?


What's wrong with people

in the world?

Today, the head of a major corporation

had a parrot fire me.

A woman I know pulled a gun on me.

And another woman I don't even know...

...threatened to bite off my nose

and stick it up my ass.

Now I'm accused of moaning.

All right, everybody freeze.

Everybody! Everybody!

Don't be jiving with my ass.

Y'all, get out of the booth. Now!

You, get off the table. Get up here.

What's wrong with you,

you honky mother?

Get the lead out of your ass

and get up here.

Whoa, where was you going?

Think you're going to the police?

No, you take your clothes off.

Everybody, get your clothes off.

Get your clothes off.

Get out here and get them clothes off.

Get on out there and get to shucking.

Shit, you ain't got no money.

What did they pay you in, food stamps?

You should be robbing me.

You're slower than molasses.

I told you get them clothes off.

I promise I won't chase you,

just let me keep my pants on.

I'll be a rock,

standing here with my pants on.

With the what?

Let me talk to you. Let me talk.

Well, do it, man. What?

I'm a divorced man,

and I let the laundry pile up.

- So I'm not wearing any underwear.

- I don't care!

Just get your honky ass undressed.

Please, give the guy a break.

He's not wearing any underwear.

- Some people aren't gifted.

- Shut your damn mouth.

Okay, I'll take it off.

Don't get so excited.

Get at it! Come on.

I won't watch this man dangle

for your delight.

You can take our wallets,

but you can't take our dignity.

I'll tell you what.

While your britches are down...

...why don't you bend over

and kiss your ass goodbye!

You hear that? Let it go!

Let go of my damn gun.

I'm gonna blow your ass off.
