Craig Ferguson is my new hero

Admittedly, I don't watch much television these days. Not in the traditional sense, at least. Hulu, I'm convinced, is a magical place where television is brought to my computer when I want it. I swear to god, their service must be powered by unicorns or leprechauns or something.

When I do watch tv, however, I usually end up watching the late shows. One such show that I enjoy is the Craig Ferguson show. He has a quirky sense of humor, razor-sharp wit and keen insights into the world. For the record, these are good things. They make him edgy and fresh in a sea of similarity. Or maybe they just make him Scottish. I don't know.

Either way, he's easily becoming one of my favorites to watch when I actually do watch late night TV. And this bit is only cementing his mantle. In this monologue, he explains how he figured out why everything sucks. And it's nothing short of amazing.

In the interest of full disclosure, I've written this article a day in advance. I only hope that Youtube hasn't taken this clip down, because as one friend accurately described, it's "like mainlining on insight".

Damn you Baker, getting all the good talk-show hosts in your country. Here we just have a guy with a lisp.
