Nowadays I find myself wishing that, if I ever quit my job, I could get people together to reenact this song, replacing Bob Murray's name with my manager's.

John, You should have reminded people about Murray giving money to the Trump campaign and giving Trump a three page letter telling him what he needed to do to please him and Trump appointed Scott Pruitt who also was connected to Murray, to do the job. So basically Murray paid Trump to reverse Obama's Environmental restrictions. Isn't that like selling out our country for his political game?

Bob Murray? Isn't he the guy who framed Ted Bundy, John Wayne Gacy and Jeffrey Dahmer? And then killed all three to cover up his crimes?

Hey, RUvid, is this harassment? Is this bullying? It’s almost like this is such a subjective policy that goes against the idea of a free and open internet. You may not want that, but your viewers do, and we’ll leave.

Do we know about Bob Murray's response to this piece? I would love it if they would get sued again. Not in malice or anything, but it would be ironic as all hell.

The thing that's killing me is knowing that if (when) Murray sues this video is going to be shown in full to the court with accompanying complete transcript. Imagine being the judge and not laughing.

I’m officially dead. This was the best episode so far. If this doesn’t receive an Emmy or whatever, I’ll be impressed.

I waited so long for this follow-up when I learned the lawsuit was over. I assume the planning and rehearsal of the end is why it took so long. Worth. Every. Second.
