The pleasure massage bit was one of the funniest things I have ever watched. Even the violinist was laughing. And I wonder how many waivers the HR person made those people sign not to sue for sexual harassment.

I wondered that myself. Between "Inappropriate Touch Tuesdays" earlier in the season and the 32 person wheelbarrow and now the pleasure coach, Comedy Central's lawyers are probably all working overtime.

The pleasure massage was hil-freaking-larious. I'm going to be seeing that guy's freakishly long nipples in my nightmares.

We've got tickets to see Tosh (on Ice) in Atlantic city and I can't wait.

I happened to see the pleasure coach segment (I watched a few shows on demand), and I can't figure out if Tosh is genuinely open minded or if he's just a douchebag frat boy laughing at the gays. It seemed like Bob the pleasure coach was in on the gag, so I suppose that's not so bad. It was interesting to note that Bob, who must be in his 60s, is in far better shape than any of those doughy, pasty writers.

Dude can and does come across as Mr. Entitled, supercilious and beyond smarmy, but every week, just as I'm asking myself, "why the fuck am I watching this," he'll run something that makes me laugh until my face hurts, so I keep watching...

This x5. What gets me is the "Is It Racist" bit. I think he just uses it as a ploy to utter slurs, because they aren't slurs when everyone knows you're "just joking," right? Not necessarily...

The final clip on last night's show ( the girl in the porn video vomiting).. For once I agree with Tosh's censors... that was really gross in so many ways..

Ditto. My favorite thing about Tosh is that he never rags on anyone harder than he does himself. He's not afraid to give birth to a puppy in a bathtub, make himself the punchline of a drug or gay bit, or even just poke fun at his upper-middle-class upbringing.

So, no one was going to bring up two girls, one toilet?

The "twist" ending to the girl urping up splooge was horrible, but fascinating. My ex and I just sat there staring at the screen after she announced she was pregnant, then SLOWLY turned to each other, mouths agape. I think we sat there for a good ten seconds. Neither of us could believe it.

Uh, that disgusting video that he showed the audience but couldn't show on the show. Well, it was so gross that they weren't even allowed to post it on the website so Tosh put a link to it on his Twitter. For those who don't want to watch it, it really is the grossest thing I have personally ever seen. It was a two minute video of a maggot-infested penis! I mean this thing went on forever.

I, umm, don't sppse you remember the URL, do you? I want to know so I don't accidentally view it.

So, Daniel went to ASU, met everyone, promoted a shit rapper, and opened the show with Santa Claus getting mounted on a sandy beach.

I kind of miss vomit and poo jokes right now.

I met the 'Chicagoalmose" guy he featured on a previous episode recently (he was the old guy who did the video about "pussy eating". http://tosh.comedyce...o-al-s-sex-tips (NSFW)
He runs some Meetup.com club that meets in a food court at a mall downtown Chicago, when I went it was mostly his ESL students and it was mostly the "Chicagoalmose fan club", I got annoyed with him quick and bailed.

Wow! It takes a lot to offend me (a LOT!) but that bit with the reallyy old woman as a stripper was WAY offensive. I can't believe her family members would allow that. Not that the woman can't make her own decisions, but still.....

I'll take your granny stripper over the "Special Halloween" clips.

The dark mass being pushed out of that person's chest?

The apparently-still-alive person with the skinless skull! What. the. fuck.? I had to cover my face whenever the person treating the skinless skull person was being treated and they reached into her eye socket...*shudder*

Please, please, please bring back the funny show! No more of these visions of death and disease!

I was out of town and missed the Halloween episode, but was really kind of surprised (shouldn't be at this point, I guess) at the bit where Daniel and the guest were firing high-powered rifles and accidentally killed a bunch of kids on a playground. Showing the kids sprawled on the slide and swing set, dead and bloody, was a bit much. Or maybe I'm just turning into a sourpuss.

This show is hit and miss, but overall I do find it thoroughly entertaining. I could do without the "web redemption" segment as it's the most hit and miss part of the show, some are funny(most recently redneck stunt man and guy who shot himself) and some are just plain forgettable(guy fits himself in a balloon, the two hurdle girls). One of my favorite dialogues to a clip from season 3 was the guy in the motorized wheel chair in Asia slamming in to the closed door. Daniel's dialogue had me laughing until it physically hurt to laugh anymore.

"Does progressive have rascal insurance? Something tells me he's not going to walk away from this one."
"Let's watch old dead-legs get the shaft in this week's video breakdown."
"I don't blame her for hitting the door close button, sometimes it's a little uncomfortable sharing an elevator with a handicapped person."
"He tried to squeeze through there at the last second like Indiana Jones and the cripple of doom."
"But he's been disrespected. And what do you do when someone disrespects you in Asia? You go kamikaze on their ass."
"Woah buddy, I like where your head's at but when god took your legs he didn't give you a free pass to destroy mall property."
"Why is he in a rush? No one's gunna yell at the guy who can't walk for being 5 minutes late."
"Bonzai!! Woops, he actually needed to go up."
"Do scooters have air bags?"
"I'm just glad he showed the world that he is handi-capable of plunging to his death."

That kiss guy? He is a relative of mine. I never met him, but he is a great-uncle or something. He was featured on the blogsite a few months back. I think that I am going to skip on telling my mother about this, though she might find out one way or another.

I was hoping that Todd Glass would come out on the show via his horrible prank show, but that was not to be.

I thought that Chris Rock was kind of a bust. That whole replacement host thing was kind of lame anyways.

Ha! Me too! I think it was the way that the guy just gobbled and/or chugged everything put in front of him with such gusto that killed me. No little nibbles or tentative tastes, just "[gobblesnorfgobbleswallow]...damn, what was that?"

Tosh is my go-to show now for guaranteed guffaws. But damn it if I keep having to cover my eyes. Last night he showed a guy with a gruesome broken toe, and I knew by the sound of Mr CP's reaction when it was time to look again.
I also love seeing Tosh's dogs, he seems to really adore them.

Daniel was so flippin' adorable on last night's show, with his dogs and with those babies in the dryers at the laundromat! He looked like he actually knew how to hold a baby, and was enjoying it! He's just adorable, period. And he sure does love to get semi-naked!

I laughed at the Lion/Penis clip so long, my husband had to come upstairs to see what I was guffawing at.

I love how he's always addressing all of the 'gay' rumors (the Google search segment at the end). I don't think he's gay, but I think he loves it when people speculate about him.

Speaking of gay, he's the one who jump-started my guy-on-guy kissing obsession, when he showed the "Celery" clip from FND films last year. Thanks, Daniel!

Yes, the babies in the dryer was adorable, just in a really sick way.

I think Daniel is really secure in his sexuality, and he's ok with speculation and ribbing and gets a huge laugh off it. Just sayin.'

I'm glad this show is back, it's always so freaking amusing. I love the "sick kicks...for the ladies" this season.

He's so cute with his dogs. When we saw him live last year, he had them both with him (one was a little baby puppy at the time) and at one point they both ran across the stage.

Cpcathy, I know what you mean. Some videos, I get a sense of what they are and turn away and listen to the audience to know I did the right thing. But I am convince Daniel will show at least one horrific injury clip, one disturbing aspect of human sexuality clip and one clip that is usually just beyond the pale in every sense. *shudder* There was one ep from the recent season where a skater took a dump in the street while doing his thing and the same ep (I think) where a woman took a dump in a grocery store.

Ironically, I think the funniest clips are the clips where Daniel doesn't show the clip but the audience reaction. Speaking of which I was at my job and a coworker was talking about the most debauched, nastiest, vilest, unredeeming show on television and I looked at him and said, "I didn't know you watched Tosh.0!" My other coworker got a kick out of that. He was talking about Honey Boo Boo. Can't say I disagreed... :)

They brought on the idiot who lost $2600 in a carnival game to the show. For once, I'm glad Daniel embarrassed the Web Redemption subject. The guy was INSISTENT that they were going to give him his money back to just keep playing, because they all talked between themselves (the carny game workers). They were supposed to let him play and win to attract more business, he said. The more that guy talked, the dumber he looked. The guy even admitted his wife tried to get him to stop, but 'then she just let me do my own thing'. Sure, because she knows the knuckle-head she's married to.

 

I think the saddest part of this was that he was insistent that it was all on the up-and-up, and that he would have gotten his money...eventually.
