    as a member of the Furry fandom and here a representative, we would like to state clear that Bob is in fact NOT A FURRY, we as the furries would rather die than accept someone like this in our fandom...

    If HBO chooses to develop "Eat Shit Bob" into a TV series, it'd be bigger than the GOT.

    This could really use proper CC, especially for the song lyrics...just something I thought of when I came back to watch it for the millionth time. :) An aside: It's official. John Oliver is the funniest comedian in the English-speaking world.

    Bob Murray shot Biggie Smalls.

    Trump would be the first person to be sued under his new libel laws. Is that guy really so brain-dead?

    "'... loose figurative language' that cannot reasonably be understood to convey facts ..." Was the judge talking about Trump?

  21. John Kesich

    That was a great pair of "separated at birth?" photos of Murray and Trump. But then again, all soulless human being wannabes look alike to me.

    For anyone that doesn't know, "HBO's legal council" is Brian d'arcy James. He is a Broadway legend and an absolute boss. He's also in the last section in a sparkly uniform middle right.

    I think my favorite part is how many dancers got a few hours of seemingly very fun work out of this.

  30. Kyle Meystedt

    By far John Oliver's best work yet. I can't count how many times I have listened to this episode and the song itself.

    Why is this the perfect role for John Oliver? Though I may not always agree with the man, I do admit, he makes a great Broadway Musical Actor.

    At least everyone get to sing along to it now, he's wishing he never tried to mess with John now. XD

    Why do I believe that Murray is close to Trump?!?

    After I was done laughing I actually cried a little bit after this. I wish there were more people/media/institutions that felt as invested in challenging what’s fucked about our country as this show. Thank you John Oliver, the people who write for you, and the poor folks that have to do all the research for your show.

    Antivaxxers do this all the time. There are many using psuedoscience and lack of science for GMOs too. Those SLAPP suits

    The ludicrous and despicable things Bob Murray had most likely done should be a meme format. *Example:* _"I hear Bob Murray saves his kidney stones for later as some sort of hard candy. It is his favorite, he is absolutely koo-koo for Kidney stones."_

    After watching this dozens of times, I can say, unequivocally, that this is the BEST episode ever. Several tie for 2nd place: 'Coal', 'Mike Pence' (all the $$ going to Aids United & the Trevor Project from THE real story of Pence's gay rabbit, Marlin Bundo, and his (the rabbit) marriage to another boy bunny!!!)
