** 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?"

** A different form of toilet humor comes from his album/performance Behavioral Problems, where he talks about staying in a local hotel that has great toilets, with heated seats and a cleaning function that shoots water at your nether regions (leading to Ron claiming [[AssShove he fell in love with the toilet for its pinpoint accuracy]]).

-->You know that little guy that sits on your shoulders that reminds you of your prior commitments and your moral fortitude? I didn't hear a peep out of that guy! He hadn't been laid in three months, either! He was speechless for like 20 minutes, then he went, "Suck her titties!" "I was ''gonna''!" Soon as the whole thing's over, he's back at his post: "That was ''wrong'', mister!" I'm like, "20 minutes ago, you were beatin' off on my shoulder, monkey boy!" I fuckin' hate him, man. He smokes pot. He burned a hole in my other jacket. (beat) Right before the show.

--->I turn around and, very politely... ''[the audience laughs]'' [[LampshadeHanging Don't start with me.]] I turn around and, very politely, say, "Lady, as far as social skills go, talking during live theatre is the equivalent of shitting in the street.

** 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.

-->I bought this big two-story custom van back when I was married. I forgot to tell you this, it was getting kinda cool, it had the James Bond couch in the back, when you push a button, the couch automatically turns into a bed, and I was like, "Well, that's cool." I finally got something over those Mercedes-Benz-driving in-laws of mine, you know what I mean? When I first bought the van, I was real proud of it. I took it straight over to my brother-in-law's house to show it off, 'cause he's such a prick. He takes one look at my new van and he goes [in snobbish accent] "I can't believe you didn't buy a Mercedes-Benz." "They don't make a van." "Ron, I don't think you fully understand the intricacies of Mercedes-Benz engineering. Why, I got the three-inch windshield wiper that keeps my headlight clean in a rainstorm." "I got a place to fuck your sister." I don't know why they didn't like me.

-->'''Airport Clerk''': ''(in regards to putting his young son on a plane, wherein he will be received by Ron's parents upon arrival)'' Is there gonna be anyone there in Dallas when he gets off the plane?\\
