I just tuned in and only heard the last two or three minutes of this guy but it was more than enough for me. He's the most irritating, narcissistic, self-absorbed, snide character I've had the misfortune of hearing on Brian Lehrer.

WOW! I judge this to be totally lacking in humor. It could not be less funny.

2 cannibals sitting around a fire, eating a clown. One cannibal says to the other: this taste funny to you?

@Ed..
So king Solomon was a the rentvof meeting with his friends and I believe it was his brother who took the life if general I think and so Solomon had to do justice by killing him because his brother killed someone higher than him so his brother runs to the ark of the covenants to hide and Solomon sends his friend to kill him with a sword and the his blood spills all over the ark ๐Ÿ˜‚

I don't remember if it's Gideon, I think it was, in the Bible where he is asked to lead the battle against an enemy nation, and he goes into his house and hides next to his bed. An angel appears to him and addresses him: 'Come, fearless warrior'. Funny.
