Doug Stanhope is a comedian every man can relate to. The former host of The Man Show usually performs looking like he rolled out of bed after a night of drinking and grabbed whatever clothes looked clean. But his routines prove he doesnt need a pressed shirt or minty breath to get a laugh, just testosterone and disgust for health consciousness. On his recent Showtime special, No Refunds, Stanhope complained about how future generations are setting up to be a big disappointment, pointing to things such as smoking bans which should hit home with Houstonians as a sign of the decline of buck-wild sensibilities. We used to do crank off of titty dancers, he says. These pussies, they drink a red bull for some pep and they prefer if you went on the patio for a cigarette. And the closest they come to a fistfight is on a message board somewhere. You lookin at my girl? Im going to delete you from my MySpace friends, you got some block user in your future.
