After reporting on a salacious Halloween costume that was clearly directed towards creating a predictable response from the males in the audience, Billy Bush made a private, third-grader joke and was caught in an open microphone. The sky is falling! Billy Bush is so sweet: let Jackie Martling make a comment into that open microphone and really see what a crude joke is all about.
If you listen to internet radio, you might be familiar with stations that play the work of comedians 24 hours a day. Some stations are censored but most are not, and if you want to experience some of the filthiest, most disturbing, and howl-out-loud humor, these are the places to go.
My mother once told me she didn’t like Don Rickles because he worked blue. Aw, how quaint. Compare a well-know dirty mind, Redd Foxx, with Nikki Glaser, No comparison? Actually there is: Foxx only implied the naughty bits while Nikki talks about blow jobs like they’re going to be on the next pop quiz at school.
And little Billy showed a small sparkle of wit that an honest society would have chuckled at even if it had been a part of the regular broadcast.
By the way, what sounds most offensive: Woody or erection?
