Thank you, everybody.

Thank you very much.

Hell yeah.

My friend got pregnant off a Tinder date.

Right? Yes. That's what I'm talking about.

Who gets pregnant off a Tinder date?

That's the future, everybody.

Remember when you were little,

you thought about the future?

What it was gonna look like.

You were wrong.

We were all wrong.

I thought it was gonna

look like Star Trek.

Not the space travel,

but everything else.

Everything would be clean,

all the people would be smart and classy.

Nope.

You know why? I figured it out.

White trash goes to the future, too.

And they're getting pregnant

off phone apps.

Who gets pregnant off a Tinder date?

Also, who gets pregnant at all,

by the way?

Enough, you guys. Enough. It's unoriginal.

Children are garbage.

If you have a kid, obviously,

obviously, I mean your kid, too.

They're all garbage.

You know it. You know they are.

You've seen them at their worst.

You know they are.

Ever see a kid run around,

and then be out of breath,

and then try to drink water?

They have no idea how to do it.

Watch them next time.

Watch them fail completely.

They come in like:

It's like, "Dude, you're 15, bro.

F*ck is wrong with you?

You breathe in through the nose, idiot."

And they're bipolar,

they scream over nothing.

I was on a plane to Tampa, Florida

like a month ago.

And, uh, I was gonna

sleep the whole way, right?

Then a f*cking 2-year-old sat right

in front of me. "Motherf*cker."

Nobody's happy about that.

Nobody, when you see a 2-year-old is like,

"Yeah." It's always, "Goddamn it."

Yeah, it's gonna ruin my trip.

Not this kid. Not this kid.

He was an angel, a little f*cking angel.

Slept the whole way. Couldn't believe it.

And then we landed.

The mom woke him up, you know.

"Casper. Casper." That was his name.

White kid. Obviously, a white kid.

Clearly, it's a white kid.

"Casper, honey, wake up."

Then Casper gets up and goes:

"Ah! Ah! No! I don't want to!

I don't want to go!"

It's like, "Dude, Casper, we're here.

It's a good thing.

Do you hate Tampa?"

I'm ten minutes away from

getting a vasectomy. I swear to God.

I think about it all the time.

If they were easier to get,

I'd have gotten one.

If they had vasectomies at 7-Eleven,

I'd have gotten, like, five.

My friends don't want me to.

"Don't get a vasectomy.

You crazy? What if

you want to have kids someday?"

And I'm like, "What day?"

When is this day coming?

I've hated children since I was 5.

Whatever, if I get a vasectomy,

and I change my mind,

and I want to have kids,

I can just adopt a kid.

I don't see why nobody thinks

that's an option.

What's wrong with adoption?

Why build a new team for the draft

when there's quality free agents

waiting to get picked up?

You know?

I know some people

are super against adoption.

Know somebody like that?

"No f*cking way. No way."

My one buddy is like that.

"Any kid for me must come from my genes.

A hundred percent, no matter what,

must come from my genes."

I'm like, "What are you, a king?

What are you talking about?"

This ain't Game of Thrones, idiot.

Just care for something.

Plus, hold on. Your genes?

Your father abandoned your family.

You dropped out of college.

And you're short, and you're bald.

You have horrible genes.

If you care about genes so much,

end the bloodline right now.

You ain't a doctor. You won't be missed.

Nothing wrong with adoption.

With adoption,

you can shop before you buy.

That's just smart, no? Huh?

Let's say I had a biological kid.

You had a biological kid.

And let's say for argument's sake that
