Did you know Bob Murray Killed Joel in the Last of Us 2 then used his penus as a machine gun with cock rocks as bullets so he could massacre 100,000,000 Harambes in front of tied up orphans who were forced to watch the grotesque gorilla massacre while Ellie screamed in horror and begged him to stop? No? Well now you know.

This is straight up amazing. Fantastic. Awesome. Great. I can't even describe how wonderfully well made this is. It's also exactly what the world needs nowadays. Not from america btw., still very happy to see someone opposing the coal industry like that. Hang in there everyone, greetings from Germany!

I'm hella Jealous, wish I could be this articulate and insulting with a interesting way while discussing serious subjects of FIGHTING THE GOOD FIGHT! Man, you get to dance, sing, encourage others into singing along with you and saying whatever they want! THIS IS HEAVEN~! WISH I had your talent and way about..... INFORMATIVE and of course the PLEASURE OF TELLING THE MAN TO GO FK HIMSELF AND also make up shit that isnt factual..... just to avoid trouble of it being called SLANDER! BRILLANT, just BRILLANT!

Interesting that Tom Cruise/Scientology is mentioned in a joke. L. Ron Hubbard was known to use SLAPP suits as a tactic against critics of Scientology.

I have a question and a comment: question: How much did that final number cost? (bear in mind, it was fantastic and worth every penny!!!) statement: Imagine how much more they could have done with money saved by not having to pay legal fees if there was a federal antislapp law.

As english is not my first language I'm having trouble listing everything I love about this show (and this piece in particular), so I'm just going to say thank you for all you have done up until now you magnificent bird person. 7+ months later and I'm still laughing so hard, I hope you people are all safe and sound. PS: Maybe after all this coronavirus shit storm and your elections coming up you could try your hand at my native chocolate goulag; especially the governement part, I think even you will be impressed at how stupidly complicated it is :) . PS': Oh!.. and EAT SHIT BOB!, you deserve so much more than just this show coming after you, you vulture-faced hemorrhoid.

I also heard that bob Murray is collecting his kidney stones so he can use them to build a life sized statue of himself, the artist is said to be using a model of the worlds biggest turd as reference because with a face like Bob's a huge wet shit would be easier to look at.
