Guinness: Or .. You know.. Switch to the metric system

EmperorZelos: everyone but shitheads understand grams.

Vivek Lasserre: How does he know what an "elephant ejaculated into a Splenda" tastes like...

Human Being: I saw an advert someone I knew about sexy Halloween costumes and one of them was a sexy lobster costume. I think he was making light of the insecurities the every other asshole was pushing on me. I think he was kind to me when other psycho bitches and things were going out of their way to put me down and make me feel insecure, usually white and blond idiots like to do that to me, although some started dyeing their hair black. They don't like brown people and they scarred and deformed me for it, that's how beautiful they are.

Lemon Chief: 5g is about 1tsp.
A can of Coca Cola (coke) contains about 35 grams of sugar, that's around SEVEN teaspoons.
By the way, around here we have sugar cubes, I don't know if it's the case in the usa, a sugar cube is around 1 teaspoon of sugar.
Also if you ever wonder about how much added sugar a product contains, just google it, it's a legal obligation to indicate it clearly here in europe.

Brief Happenstance: How is $41,000 equal to half a million?!?

Fireball Flareblitz: #showusyourpeanuts

Gumball the Engineer: It's true, if your famous enough you can actually go FUCK YOURSELF

Freeride Forever: No one understands metric? You reeeally shoulda thought that one through better. Comparing a unit of mass to a unit of volume wasn't even the stupidest thing you did there. Sounds like your Muhricuntization is deteriorating your brain now more than your sugar intake supposedly does. I know it's the Muhricunt way to think you're the center of the Universe 'n' all, but if you just try to do something like compute the number of feet in a random number of miles or the number of CI in a random number of gallons & then do the same in metric, you'll see one of many big reasons why the metric system is easier & far better & that everyone in the smarter developed countries totally gets it. That is if you don't get confused & do something like try to calculate how many litres there are in a foot.

Sailor Venus: "No one understands the metric system"
Really pandering to that american audience eh John?

Kathleen Ryan: I'm that fucked up kid that loved circus peanuts and candy corn and necco wafers...

TheDrumGuy: "But studies have shown that shuggar can seriously mess with your brain." Maybe that's the reason Trump is now president...

Heroine Addict: Is this crusade due to your trauma at being the son of the R. White's Secret Lemonade Drinker?

KrazyBrothersInc: 4:11 The story about Gerald the retarded mouse and his crippling addiction to sugar.

dobbin awx: sexy john oliver costume? isn't that kind of redundant?

nvanwensen: I always thought circus peanuts were actual peanuts :O My life has been a lie!

Jackson Bowen: You are the 6th tv show/youtuber to hate Kevin

SIX SIX SEX: There is no such thing as freebase Heroin.

Vast Dragon: Man, John Oliver really hates Necco Wafers and Janice from accounting

Christopher Blackburn: I would like to read Dr. Pepper's research.
