Hey Polly. How do I stop being an asshole? Last night, I went out with my husband to enjoy a big festival in town. We both noticed a sign from a distance, but as we approached, another reveler stood directly in front of the sign to read it.
The song made MuchMusic 's "50 Most Controversial Videos of All Time" and reached spot 37 for its profanity, making fun of handicapped people, and threatening to destroy the environment. The word " asshole " is said at least 27 times, according to MuchMusic 's Devon Soltendieck. The word "fuck" is said four times and also "piss" is used three times. A censored video for the song was made, which bleeps out some words. However the word "asshole" is still present and uncensored. In a appearance on The Opie and Anthony Show , comedian Louis CK claimed that Leary stole his "I'm an asshole" routine, which was then expanded upon and turned into a hit song by Leary. Leary appeared in the advert which is about a man who drinks and drives with his family in the car.
