John Oliver: pumpkin spice

That was the worst bit of nonsense that I have ever seen from him.
Am I the only one who feels this way?

5. No, it was one of the "aside" bits on last night's show

That involved a lot of in-your-face shouting. I did not appreciate that short segment, either, agree with RainCaster, it was OTT - and the thought of "pumpkin spice" flavored anything makes my throat close. Just one "bit" on an otherwise excellent show on the horrors of Trump's ongoing "border wall" project.

9. It was the funniest bit of the show.

Watch it again.

It’s over the top for effect.

Like the pumpkin spice people.

I was rolling in bed laughing out loud.

11. I personally love pumpkin spice

I drink the coffee, eat PS oatmeal, muffins ... and I thought it was funny. I actually lol'd a couple of times.

4. Clearly he personally doesn't like

pumpkin spice but he is sometimes nonsensical. Just his schtic. Remember he did those Japanese bears that were in love?

8. And they returned the favor recently by naming their sewage plant after him. I

bet he will use that in his show.

Danbury, Connecticut names sewage plant after John Oliver

John Oliver dumped on the wrong Connecticut town.

The British comedian took the piss out of Danbury on his HBO show last week — so officials are naming the local sewage plant after him.

“We are going to rename it the John Oliver Memorial Sewer Plant,” Mayor Mark Boughton said Saturday in a Facebook video. Why? Because it’s full of crap just like you, John.”

The move comes after the Aug. 16 episode of “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver” in which the host explored the racial disparities in the jury selection process, citing problems in a few Connecticut towns.

(For the record, I love John Oliver.)
