It’s hard to believe there’s anything these men don’t say. They’ve taken on everything from abortion to molestation to cat orgies over the past 13 years and have not been delicate about it.

“I think Comedy Central totally fucking pussed out. Now, they weren’t any different than anyone else, so it’s not like you can single them out.
