3.1: Jeff Dunham

“I don’t wanna offend anyone here, but can I just please say ‘black’? I am not Northern European-American. I don’t care. I’m freaking white. Or off-white, or pink, I don’t know. All I know is there’s black, brown, red, yellow, white. I don’t care. Just mow my lawn.” — Jeff Dunham (via his dummy, Walter) in Spark of Insanity

3.1-3: Nick Thune

“Seventeen years old, got my first fake I.D. In fact, about, I guess a week ago, it would’ve been my fake I.D. birthday, and I would have been 40. And it’s just like, where’d all the years go? And I know you’re looking at me, and you’re thinking, ‘Nick, you don’t look 40.’ But I did back then.” — Nick Thune in Folk Hero

“Everybody in this room, individually, sexually, has something that you are into that is downright filthy, uh, disgusting. No one knows how nasty this is, but you and the Lord.

“It’s a good time to be Indian in the world. Not the best time to be brown, but if you’re gonna be brown, Indian is the best brown. Think about where all the other brown people on the planet come from. Indians, we are at the top of that food chain. Indians: We are the white people of brown people.” — Vir Das on Conan

“Now, I don’t know the plight of the attractive female. I don’t know the hell they go through on a daily basis. But I do know this: If someone drugged my drink, I would take it as a compliment. I’d be at the bar going, ‘I’m getting sleepy. Who likes me? Who is it?’” — Jim Jefferies on Freedumb
