Flame Retardant


Comedian Mike Dambra says he rubs people the wrong way. While it might be because of jokes about his drinking habit — "You know it's a bad hangover when you wake up and you're washing your face, and the lid falls on you" — chances are it's his digs at the mentally handicapped. "I get yelled at for saying 'retarded,'" he says. "Take a retarded guy aside, and ask him what he wants to be called. 'Uh, pickle?' They don't care what you call them. They're fucking retarded!"
