    Hey. A fertilizer plant here (ka-boom) a roller coaster there (ka-eject).

    Open up your business in the state of little regulation and hope for patrons?

    How’s that workin’ out, Rickie?

  2. AttilatheBlond says:

    Perry’s attempted poaching in California was amusing, but when Texas re-started it’s war on women, some bright Californians ran ads inviting Texan women to come to California, which respects their rights.

    I love his material but I remember when he first started getting national attention — I was always worried that he was going to have a stroke before his gig ended!

  4. Monoceros Forth says:

    Yep, the counties that suck up the tax dollars that New York City citizens pay. :p

  5. nicho says:

    Get out of town!

    CA says F’**k You texas. Small ‘t’ intentional.

  7. TheOzHaveIt says:

    It’s a great bit, but do you & Black understand the difference between New York STATE and New York CITY? This may come as a shock, but there are FIFTY-SEVEN other counties in New York State, beyond the five that make up New York City.

    Lewis Black is a national treasure.

    Just wow. Louis kicks ass!

  10. zorbear says:

    And explosions — don’t forget our explosions…

  11. TonyT says:

    Love Lewis Black. Love this because whenever those commercials would come on the radio ( I live in IL) I’d say Fuck You, Texas! They started airing here the week the fertilizer plant blew up.

  12. nicho says:

    Texas: We have no restrictive environmental laws on business — and we have the birth defects and premature deaths to prove it.

  13. Zorba says:

    I love this! Lewis Black hit one right out of Yankee Stadium.

  14. Dave of the Jungle says:

    Perry done fucked with the wrong Marine.

  15. nicho says:

    When Lewis Black can make himself laugh, you know he’s hit it out of the park.

  16. Or actually was more likely at the GOP convention in NYC – CDF holding an event to highlight their issues.

  17. He’s just so damn good. I saw him perform at a benefit for, I think, CDF at the Dem convention in Boston. I think it was there. Omg he was good.

  18. Baal says:

    As a Texan, I approve that message too.

  19. cole3244 says:

    lewis proves that black is beautiful.

    How. Awesome. Was. That!
