I HATE Larry the Cable Guy!

Discussion in 'Anything goes' started by Evil ... Thy name is Orville Redenbacher!!, Dec 2, 2008.

  1. Driving to work this morning, I was listening to John Boy and Billy.
    Sidebar: I'm about through with them too since all they do is push products, acts, movies etc... They sold out years ago and pretty much suck.Anyway, they are talking to Larry the Cable Guy - who is doing his schtick and of course plugging an upcoming appearance in North Carolina.
    Ever since I saw a clip of the guy, before he was Larry the Cable guy, I hate him. He is a fraud. A phony.
    I find His thick southern accent and hillbilly jokes insulting - mostly because the guy is a fake. I can understand exaggerating yourself, but damn.
    He's about as southern as Ohio and his hick as Palm Beach, Fla. I find it to be incredibly condescending that portraying an ass-backwards hillbilly has made him a wildly popular and a very rich man.
    End of rant.

    Ralph Barbieri and Tom Tolbert just had a raisin ham on their show.
    Apparently the raisin ham will be the new point guard for Golden State.

    The raisin ham vs. Baron Davis matchup will be epic.

    He was like a flash in the pan, he was very popular then people just got bored of the same jokes. I saw Ron White in Boston several years ago who is much better than Larry the Cable Guy; but Ron White, Larry the Cable Guy and Jeff Foxworthy really all talk about the same stuff.

    Oh, I dunno. I really enjoy Ron White. Caught a new special of his over the weekend, and it had me rollin' on the floor. One bit in particular, he was talking about people asking why he isn't involved in the Blue Collar TV show. He said it's two words: "Work ethic. My grandad used have a saying about me. 'That boy's got a lot of quit in him.'"

    Then, he went on to say that even the things he didn't quit, he got kicked out of -- like his high school debate team.

    "We had a debate, and my opponent talked and talked, then it was my turn. I responded with 'Well, fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck you.' He was speechless. I thought that was the point."

    If by "new" you mean a couple years old, then yes. :D

    I would so expose him for the hot dog he is.
  12. Are you ripping Larry the Cable Guy for being a one-joke pony (when both of your jokes weren't funny the first time around)?

    I'm not much of a fan, either, but those who live in glass houses...
