1.10: Stand Up Science! with Shane Mauss

“I had this great idea the other day — I’m gonna be rich. There’s more to it than that. It’s basically for a bumper sticker, and it just says on it, ‘I am a child molester.’ I’m gonna sell a lot of those. No? Oh, you know what, maybe I should explain. Sorry. You don’t put it on your car. That would be stupid.” — Shane Mauss on at the Boston Alternative Comedy Festival
