It felt like he might have and it got worked into a bit because Stephen Colbert is an improv genius.

EDIT: Thinking about it though, I also remember when Stephen got into "trouble" with Sumner Redstone when he talked shit about Viacom. In a later show Stephen spoke to him over the telephone and Redstone made him do the hokey pokey on air and asked him if he understood or something. Fucking evil.

“You know what I want? I want to get a little drunk with you tonight. Not falling down. Just a little drunk. I want to talk to you and plan with you. Listen and laugh, I basically WANT TO BE WITH YOU!!! Then I want to fall asleep with you and wake up tomorrow and read the paper with you and have coffee with you.”

“I love everything about you. I love that your last pic takes me completely out of my head. I am crazy about you. All of you. I need to smell and touch you. I want to hold you. I know you’re right for me. I know we fit,”“I like it when you’re strong, and I like it when you’re vulnerable. Everything. The only thing I don’t like is not being with you. All of this is just straight from my heart. I love everything about you.”

He also sent some shirtless pics and of course a dick pick (unclear if it was the rocket or his actual penis).

u/robxburninator 14d ago

He never stopped being a working actor. He's been in smaller movies, tons of crime procedurals, done voice acting, and played recurring roles on a bunch of more popular shows. He just hasn't been "seinfeld" acting for a while. He's a working actor like many others in later in their careers and he seems to deal with it like a job just working when he can. Much respect for those that continue to work.

Just reinforces your point, he's really talented and has a lot of opportunities for work. And they're all so rich from Seinfeld money that he can make the choices he wants to.

I don't think so. It's just a silly/surreal joke about how increasingly weird and out of touch these egocentric billionaires are becoming.

For a guy who creates a rocket company as a side project to send himself into space in a phallic representation of his own insecurities, "eating sushi off his own naked body" is a good mad-libs escalation.

It would be a standard closing joke on a Daily Show monologue; now Jon Stewart has the budget to actually pay an actor to do it.

28

u/SeaLegs 13d ago

Wow, you did a great job explaining the humor of a really contrived, nuanced joke. Good job (no sarcasm).

I would just describe it as eccentric ego masturbation. You typically eat sushi off a naked woman's body as a kind of demeaning way to satisfy 2 carnal desires at once, so eating off your own body is just a way to celebrate yourself in a really deviant way.

Really, really creative and accurate way to characterize these people.

Nyotaimori is a kind of practice by people who want to show off a certain amount of wealth.

You'd think the association is that the female body (objectified as a serving dish) is considered the "beautiful centerpiece", so having Bezos act as his own serving dish is probably just playing on their narcissism of thinking they are the best possible version/beautiful vessel.

I think they're hilarious, but everyone's got their own taste. I will say that I think he's actually gotten better in "The Void" as he stopped playing so heavily to the audience. It really helped streamline things.

To each his own, I guess, because I thought that one was brilliant.

Omg thank you for saying this. John Oliver’s analogies just lose me most of the times.

Most of the time it's just a non-sequitur delivered with angry derision.

I thought this was going to be funnier but it's just dick rocket jokes.

u/RedRocket05 14d ago

Yup. All the dick rocket jokes had already been done by the time I watched this. Although Richard Branson mop was amusing.

u/PeaceBull 14d ago

To be fair that’s only cause Reddit caught on to it late.

It was out during the relevant window.

u/RedRocket05 13d ago

Understood, but that's a fairly lavish promotion for a hotly anticipated new show from one of America's most astute comedians and we've got a dick joke that my Dad was making weeks ago.

They aren't really even jokes. It's just them literally calling the rockets dicks. It's like the Austin Powers spaceship joke, but without the joke part.

The mop joke, cat joke, and eating sushi off himself jokes were all other jokes and I'd argue far funnier than the main, tired, cringy dick joke was.

It sucks for SpaceX that for whatever reason they’ve become associated with the race between Blue and VG for suborbital tourism.

They’re the only human orbital capability the US has and have been dominating the commercial launch industry for years, crippling Russian commercial launch…they’ve been a huge boon to both national security and science missions, offering way cheaper $/lb and promising to dramatically decrease it further.

Anyone who claims that what’s happened in the past month is a dick-measuring contest between three billionaires can have whatever they say basically dismissed out of hand.

u/DangerZone1776 13d ago

The amount of uneducated and uninformed criticism in this post is a bit disheartening. I know it's not r/space, but it's bad. SpaceX and it's falcon 9 launch system is the single greatest achievement of the last half century in the field of space delivery systems. The boon to space exploration, science, and technology alone is truly mind blowing. The prices for the ride share launches have allowed hundreds of experiments into space that would have been priced out a decade ago.

As for the other two they are still developing and pushing technology. Blue Origins New Glenn if successful will help competition to further bring down costs in this market enabling more research and experiments. Blue Origin went for space tourism first for the easy win (not easy at all but compared to new Glenn) that would bring steady revenue to fund his actual goal of furthering space exploration.

I am a huge fan of space and in the community of space research and technology any advancement, success, or even press is a win as a whole. I want everyone and everything going to space to succeed. I do not care if you are the Chinese government, a rich billionaire, or a NASA funded ULA project.
