Adam has a killer raped by Wesley Snipes riff and says there are too many people thinking they are too good at too much shit, he’s using physical confrontations to make a point, and you could get the shit kicked out of you.
Adam says the only way to get past that is to train and be prepared for said fight, let the experts do their jobs, until they demonstrate that they cannot.

BB is now asking about people who pierce their young daughters ears, Adam says it doesn’t move anyone’s needle, it doesn’t motivate a dude and he’s joking about a close up of Susan Boyle’s earlobe and Alison’s earlobes, you wouldn’t know the difference nor which one you were beating off to.
Hooray for Baldywood
