#IFOUNDTHECHICKENS

Jim Jefferies offers an hysterical send-up of conspiracy theories. A bit NSFW.

A few too many unnecessary f-bombs, but otherwise Comedy Gold. Hits many of the bonkers CT marks

Where are they all?
I don't understand so it can't be right
It doesn't add up
Do the math

I lost it at the way he shouted "NO!!!" after feigning incredulity about there being millions of chickens in every state, and then the article about millions of chickens drowning in a hurricane. The closing line about "show me the evidence and then I'll call you a liar" sums up pretty much every exchange I've ever witnessed with conspiracy theorists.

I found him annoying, but that is just me.
There is always:
"It doesn't look right, so therefore it is/was faked"

It's not just you. I didn't laugh once. It's not surprising that this is an Internet bit as opposed to something for the TV show. It seemed like a premise someone presented in the writers' room without any idea of how to develop it.
