--> '''Ron:''' This guy was coming up with all these arguments and I just said, 'Yeah well ''FUCK YOU!!!''' I thought I had ''won''. The other guy was speechless. I thought that's what we were supposed to do.

** For the record, it's not as if this led to him breaking off all association with the other three. In particular, he's known to have stood up for Creator/LarryTheCableGuy, a close friend, when Creator/DavidCross started a feud with Larry.

* TypeCasting: Part of the reason he eventually left the Blue Collar Comedy group. While he did so on good terms, White himself, and not a few of his fans, felt like he didn't fit, as he had to water his style down considerably to fit with the other guys on tour. He also wanted to avoid being called a "redneck comedian", since the redneck lifestyle isn't really something he talks about much.

* WhiteSheep: Quite a few of his fans ''really'' don't like the other Blue Collar guys.
** It does make sense, though, as Ron (though not trying to be disrespectful to his colleagues) [[TypeCasting did not want to be classified]] as a "redneck" comedian. This was the main reason he didn't join the others on ''Blue Collar TV'', though he did make an appearance or two throughout its run.
** Also makes sense since White's style of comedy is much DarkerandEdgier than the other three.

* BiggerIsBetterInBed: Subverted and averted. First, he describes his own member as extremely short, but ''extremely'' wide - "cheese wheel" is the term he uses. (Interestingly, being more endowed in ''that'' dimension [[TruthInTelevision is what women prefer, according to studies.]]) He averts the trope when talking about "Squirrel Man", who actually seemed insecure about his massive endowment - more or less shoving it in Ron's face while telling him how his wife cheated on him with his friends. Certainly didn't seem like having a gigantic penis helped there...

** And another example, where he tells the story of going innertubing with friends on a river and notices that despite all the beer everyone was drinking, nobody had to stop to pee. He figured they were all peeing through their trunks in the water, so he decided he'd do the same. Unfortunately for some of his friends, he was in the canoe.

* DigitalPiracyIsEvil: In one bit, he laments the income he's lost from people illegally downloading his albums, and thinks back to [[WhenIWasYourAge his youth]], when he would go down to the record store and [[BaitAndSwitch stuff records down his pants]]. "Now THAT'S stealin' music!"

** He hosted the Jeff Foxworthy Roast, but became more and more visibly inebriated as it went on, to the point that Larry finally had to take over for him.

** The drinking on stage isn't just a schtick he uses for an on-stage persona. He really does drink, smoke, and toke constantly throughout the day. He fully acknowledges that he has a problem and that his habits have gotten him into severe trouble, but dislikes being sober so much that being near-permanently inebriated and high is preferable.

* BrickJoke:
** The "Tater Salad" story. Short version: he was arrested for DUI when he was young. Since it was a small town, he had known the cop personally for a long time. When the cop -- who of course had to follow procedure asked him if he had any aliases, Ron sarcastically responded "Yeah. They call me...'Tater Salad.'" Twenty years later, while being arrested for being drunk in public in New York City, the officer ran his record and asked him "Are you Ron 'Tater Salad' White?"

* RetiredBadass: He was formerly in the US Navy[[note]]Although, by his own admission, he was so drugged up at the time that he was kicked out of the military without completing his term of service[[/note]], and was also a rodeo bronc rider in his younger days.
