  1. You've cut the video this exactly when he was about to say that the gay guy invited him over to have a chicken with him.

  2. I love the audience reaction on the last part when the guy says "No, I don't own a dog house." because they all know what's coming.

  3. I was talking with my neighbor the other day and all of a sudden a weird smell blew in on the wind. We both tried to describe the smell. My neighbor says "It smells just like moth balls" To which I replied "You know what moth balls smell like…how'd you get his little legs apart?"

  4. But the genius part was left off, when he nonchalantly adds that the guy at the bus stop invited him for chicken, so you get the punchline you were expecting which still worked because of the timing and delivery AND the punchline you didn’t expect which completely alters the joke because the point was that norm didn’t understand what logic was, but the added line implies that the syllogism still worked. So brilliant.
