Bill Burr Quote

A comedian friend posted this on Facebook saying that he’d seen it a few times before, but that looking at his bank account balance while sleeping on the couch made him remember it.

Here’s why I’m not a sad computer programmer, for instance:

Realize that sleeping on a futon when you’re 30 is not the worst thing. You know what’s worse, sleeping in a king bed next to a wife you’re not really in love with but for some reason you married, and you got a couple kids, and a job you hate. You’ll be laying there fantasizing about sleeping on a futon. There’s no risk when you go after a dream. There’s a tremendous amount of risk to playing it safe.

  1. “Would you get in a line for parachuting if you knew half the parachutes would fail?” “You guys keep your thirty eights, I have a twenty two. When the prowler comes into your house and you fire your first shot all you will here is ‘eeeeeeee!'” – Bill Burr is awesome
