    I recorded this episode and the record cut off right before they showed the cake so I’m really glad I was able to find it on YouTube

      John if you really worked out (which you sort of do as you do work out of an HBO studio) you should know that the proper way to show off the flex and be confident about nailing it only requires one sentence and two gestures. "The beach is over there, and the waves are this high." Punctuated by an authoritative outward nasal snort while looking as blaze' as possible. If you have the muscle mass when it comes to narrative, less is way more. (also kissing your own bicep in an offhand way after "over there" is wholly appropriate.)

        Aw, I was kinda hoping that Birdy was that guy who wrote a book and forces the entire country to read it and teach it in schools that can't tell the difference between boys and girls and is himself just a tremendously ignorant, stupid person. That must be another authoritarian dictator. Also, Guinness? I thought you guys were about world records? Would it help if Mr. Oliver fucked a horse?

              John Oliver makes everything look like a piece of cake with his brilliant servings of humor baked with actual facts and frosted with his cuteness. Oh, and with the size of this pastry, he may have a world's record the having his cake and eating it too. Okay, I'll stop for now

                    Time to get rid of all the GWR books I got every year for Christmas when I was a kid.

                    Sorry, “oldest male stripper”.

                        HBO: John, you are a totalitarian fuck!
                        John: why?
                        HBO: you made us spend Doug for shit!
                        John: I see your point.

                          In total fairness if he did fire the gun while riding the bike, that'd be pretty impressive. Cause riding with one hand while firing a gun would be difficult due to the recoil. However he probably didn't even fire it.

                                  The cake is wonderful. What a great ending. I’m surprised Trump🤥hasn’t caught onto this Guinness world record gimmick. He could win by having them count all of the lies he has told since the beginning of his campaign through his presidency and so on and so on and so on. 🤥

                                      You could have added several banned things in Turkmenistan such as:
                                      -Black cars
                                      -Long hairs (for mens)

I guess it is in the culture of central Asian men, remember they had a long relation with the nomadic/Mongolian tribes of central asia. After reading a lot about central Asia and Mongol history, I only started to understand how important horses have been in their traditional way of life. That kind of obsession can only show how much Genghis Khan's legacy influenced the region and the culture, and how 'medieval' it all seems up until quite recently...

                                                                                            Yeah, that guy is *too* into horses.
