i just thought i would have got more done in my life now and i haven't really done much. up till now, my proudest achievement was a three-way with two chubby chicks. [ light laughter ] that's a menage a -- ugh. [ laughter ] i like large woman, though. they're very soft. it's almost as if they have breasts all over their body. it's like -- [ laughter ] full-body breasts. it's cool 'cause you can find large woman, if you're looking for them late at night, on the internet. they got code words for them. bbw. right? that stands for "big, beautiful woman." not the best abbreviation, though, bbw 'cause abbreviation is supposed to shorten a word. bbw is still the same number of letters as fat. [ laughter ] best part about the bbw, though is if the bbw happens to be black, you just throw another b in there. and then the word sounds like how she's shaped, just "buh buh buh wah," and that --
1:28 am
[ laughter ] hmm. lot of bbws to choose from these days. i don't know if you guys have heard but we as americans -- we now are officially the fattest people of all time. we did it. [ cheers ] it's weird. there's all these theories about it, trying to -- investigative reports, "why are we so fat? how did we get to be so fat?" i don't know. i got my own theory. maybe, just maybe, it's 'cause a burger costs $2 and a salad's freakin' $12.99. maybe that's -- [ cheers and applause ] got something to do with it.

a vegan is a person who won't eat anything made by or with flavor. [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] my vegan friend gets all excited whenever he finds new vegan food. he's like, "oh man, you gotta try this!" tastes just like turkey but it's made with tofu. they call it tofurkey." i say, "no man, i don't gotta try that 'cause i already found something that tastes just like turkey except it's made with turkey. it's called turkey." [ laughter ] the stuff you got doesn't taste like turkey at all. it tastes more like the sad delusions of a man who wears pants so tight, i can make out the expression on the head of his penis. [ laughter ] and it looks like this -- "ah!" [ laughter ] i've had decent vegan food before, though. but you know, a good vegan meal is like a good christian rock band. even when it's kind of good, still really sucks.
