I hope one day that tape is used in evidence against him after he hit a cyclist. ;) Or one of the 1160 'Likes'.

I wouldn't even know where to begin with this, it's unfortunately the way a lot of drivers think and behave.

Just have to ignore it is all.

"Who’s Bill Burr?"

Apparently just another generic loudmouth dickhead on YouTube.

As You Like It

Mr. Potty Mouth recycling the same 4 letters words over and over.....for someone who makes a living using his mouth - one would expect a little bit more imagination put forth. Then again perhaps his brain is as dry as the remainder biscuit after a voyage.

But then again, there’re enough other “brain as dry as the remainder biscuit after a voyage” who are bored enough to listen to his loud mouth?

Daddy-o, nothing to do with anyone’s hope for 20 second fame. But I refrain from clicking such clickbait, taking pleasure to deny them one data point to add to their click statistics. (actually 2 data point in this case)

And Trump with his big nuclear weapon button is president. There's lots of things wrong in the world right now. Bill Burr's popularity is just one more of those things.

That 'Rickle' style offshoot of humor never appealed to me. Seems the 'Kinison' screamer archetype is in play with that style as well.

Every few decades one of these come along and make it. Lewis Black in example of success in this comedic type.

He thinks of himself as a successor to Carlin, Cosby or Pryor, but he lacks their underlying sense of humanity.

"thinks of himself as a successor"

There in lies the key, "thinks". Brilliant 'funny' to me is like breathing for the really funny folk IMO. Ricky Gervais perhaps a reasonable example. Like the prolific song writers just do. With some it seems non contrived. Joy Behar perhaps another example, she just seems is funny. It is in the take I guess.

Sam Kinison and Lewis Black were and are funny

One may not like their styles, but that's a personal preference that doesn't diminish their talent.

In contrast, Bill Burr just seems like a douche. No class, no style, just bitching.

Sorry, I did not watch it all the way through.

Not that my permanent retirement from road riding after brain injury biases me or anything like that, but I modestly hope he fries in hell.

The first link he's wrong, except that he is spot on about the rules don't apply attitude.
The second link he's right, whether the C-word offends you or not, that's how women argue.
Congratulations if that kind of adversarial tactic is out of your realm of experience. GFY.

Not out of my realm of experience, but that realm fortuitously divorced me 30+ years ago, and the second round has been much better. I am glad to say that some women are not all women. Whatever audience Burr is aimed at, it ain't me babe.
