I had never heard of Bill Burr before this weekend, when the stand-up comic and actor hosted Saturday Night Live. I don’t think that is particularly important information, but many of the people I outraged enough to call me a “bitch,” a “cunt,” or “limp wristed” seemed to think it is So, hands up, I don’t know who Bill Burr is beyond what I saw on SNL.
