The Genius of Bill Maher
Bill Maher can have his truly funny moments when he's not being misogynistic.
In this clip, he deals with how America sinks to a new low when the hottest application for the iphone is a farting noise. Seriously.
Then he enters the terrority of the sublime when he dons a 'snuggie', a blanket with sleeves - these are advertised on most American TV channels - he refers to it as a giant bib. He plaintively asks what kind of message is this sending to the Chinese, who 'own our ass', a $6,000 debt by every man, woman and child in America.
He then summarizes beautifully what is wrong with America when it's down to fartnoises, snuggleys and twittering.
