Ted (to Wes): "[Redacted] used to do stand-up. He was great and even organized a show each week, but he stopped because comedians are the most narcissistic assholes. Like, the worst human beings he ever met… [turns to me] That said, Kevin, I still think you'd be really good at stand-up comedy."
If I ever were to try standup again*, I might have to start off with that story. Better yet, Ted should really take up comedy if he's got jokes like that. He can claim he didn't mean it in that way all he wants, but that is easily the best, most cackle-inducing backhanded compliment I have ever received.
* I only tried it once while in college, but I really liked it. (Funny how that sentence could apply to so many things.)
