Louis CK: you know who he is, you know he’s often hilarious and that he’s at his best when he’s talking about privilege in a way that can hit home even for clueless dipshits. He hosted Saturday Night Live this past weekend, and his opening monologue was packed full of awesome commentary about the poor, women, and religion. Those of you in the US can check it out on Hulu:
Here are some choice quotes for those of you who can’t watch the video:
“I don’t think women are better than men but I do think men are worse than women.”
“Our father who art in heaven. What happened to our mom? What did he do to our mom?”
“It was so okay to beat your wife until so recently that today we have a kind of shirt named after it. There is a piece of clothing in our culture affectionately nicknamed after beating the crap out of your wife. And somehow this is offensive to nobody.”
“I was just wearing a wife-beater and child murder shorts…”
I swear sometimes I love that man.
