Funny: Bo Burnham
You're bound to get at least one out of his many songs. Expect him to use Vulgar Humor.
  • "New Math." "This is a song that takes something that's not usually funny, math, and makes it... offensive."
    "Squaring numbers is just like women / If they're under 13 just do them in your head....."
  • From "My Whole Family (Thinks I'm Gay)":
    "Maybe it's because of the way that I walk / They all think that I like...boys."
  • From the video for "Oh Bo" a hot girl plays with whipped cream seductively while he holds up a sign in the back saying "YAY FEMINISM!"
    • And since it's a rap song, there's plenty of lines like this:
    I'll have you going down like you've grown an extra chromosome!
  • From "We Think We Know You": "I AM SATAN, LORD OF DARKNESS."
    • The song itself is a CMOA.
  • During the Youtube version of what., he tells a joke about video editors, only to have it cut to the next one mid-joke.
  • Pretty much every Vine he's ever made.
  • "From God's Perspective"
    You shouldn't abstain from pork just cause you think that I want you to. You can eat pork, cause - why the fuck would I give a shit?... I created the universe. Think I'm drawing the line at the fuckin' deli aisle?
  • "I put a chameleon on a red dildo. It blushed."
  • "Bo wants to make you feel comfortable. So sit back, relax, and enjoy a healthy dose of PROLONGED EYE CONTACT."
  • The video for "Repeat Stuff". Yes, there's loads of content that should be classified as Nightmare Fuel, but the way that it's executed and the purpose that it has in the video just makes it come off as very amusing.
  • The part in "Sad" where Bo says he saw a poster for a lost dog that didn't have any legs. It seems terrible, but then you realize there is no way that dog ran away and its owners are just incredibly oblivious.
  • From the part where Bo's left and right brain are split:
    Right Brain: There's something about her! I just can't describe it!
    Left Brain: Tits.
  • From "Repeat Stuff:"
    I love my baby and you know I couldn't live without her
    But now I need to make every girl think this song's about her
    Just to make sure that they spread it like the plague
    So I describe my dream girl as really, really vague, like
    "I love your hands 'cause your fingerprints are like no other
    I love your eyes and their blueish brownish greenish color
    I love it when you smile, that you smile wide
    And I love how your torso has an arm on either side."
    Now, if you're my agent you might be thinking, "Oh no, sound the alarms
    You're not appealing to little girls who don't have arms."
    But they can't use iTunes, so fuck ooooooooff!
