During Louis C.K.'s recent conversation with Howard Stern, the topic of C.K.'s controversial SNL monologue about child molesters came up—naturally, so did Jared Fogle, who C.K. believes proves his thesis on pedophilia.
If the plethora of other jokes about Jared Fogle this past year have clouded your memory, here's the bit that got many people upset with C.K. last year (watch the whole thing here).
Child molesters are very tenacious people. They love molesting childs! It’s crazy! It’s like, their favorite thing! I mean it’s so crazy, because when you consider the risk in being a child molester — speaking of not even the damage you’re doing — but the risk, there is no life worse available to a human than being a caught child molester. And yet they still do it! Which you can only really surmise that it must be really good! I mean, from their point-of-view!
In his talk with Stern, C.K. didn't seem as shocked about Jared's pedophilia as the radio host did.
HS: How shocking Jared from Subway turned out to be a pedophile?
CK: Why? Why is that shocking? Did you know him to be a non-pedophile before that? Anybody could be a pedophile.
HS: Well, you know what it is? When I see someone who hit the lottery the way this kid did, he lost some weight, a lot people lose weight in this country…and he ends up making millions. He was a multi-millionaire from the fucking Subway commercials. That’s it…I don’t care what you have wrong with you, when you get a couple of million for doing absolutely nothing but losing weight, you behave yourself.
CK: Yeah, but you’re proving the point of the bit that I did. That no matter what, he’s gotta get that kid fuck. Which just tells you, it must be amazing. It must be a huge payoff.
Dark, uncomfortable truths are Louis C.K.'s most fruitful muse.
