If history has taught us anything, it's don't start a Twitter fight with Patton Oswalt...

/Actually, now that i think about it.
A mano a mano 'GIF Off' between Patton and Bo would be spectacular!

This is the only way Baio can seem relevant any longer.

Seriously.

This is it.

Getting into a battle of wits with a seasoned stand up comedian is a bad idea, and it's an especially bad one when you're unarmed like Scott Baio.

I thought Baio got outed as a sexual predator a while back. Maybe it was some other right wing 'star'. Variation on a theme.

Kevin Sorbo.
He's still pissy that Xena eclipsed him with minimal effort.

/I get the two mixed up as well..

I'm guessing Chachi ate a lot more lead paint chips growing up than Patton did.

One day Patton will exit menopause and things will get much calmer.

With all love for the guy, Oswalt is the one who was trying to pick a fight by calling out the irrelevant guy no one has cared about in decades by name.  And I'm not really even sure you could call it a valid joke, I don't think there's anything that's more "punching down" by definition than anyone with an actual career or even an actual job making a joke about Scott Baio.

Like, teenaged fry cooks at the local McDonalds should be ashamed of picking on someone so much less important, relevant, and employable than them if they were to crack an unsolicited Scott Baio joke.

Duh. Patton's been dealing with hecklers for 30 years. Any standup that's made it is usually a black belt smartass.

What do you have against McDonald's employees??? Leave my double caffeinated fries alone!

Regarding punching down.
There is a general consensus when it comes to stand up comedy.
If you opened your pie-hole, and happened say something stupid. You're fair game...

I'm sure you're familiar with it, especially after frequenting Fark... ;-)

Really? Doesn't look like he can deal with hecklers during this show:

"It's not funny to pick on Scott Baio, he's too lame. I will now shoot for a few chuckles by picking on Scott Baio and how lame is."

See? It's impossible to mention Scott Baio without immediately making fun of him. You might as well tell everyone not to make an "Ewww" face as you take a big bite of pineapple anchovy pizza. It's just not a reasonable expectation.

Never get into a public argument with a comedian, if you are already a punchline.

Say what you will about Scott Baio's seasons with arms, but nobody can say that Scott Baio physically doesn't have arms.
Scott Baio, owner of human arms.
Yes, I am high s fark right now.

If Scott Baio's hand can touch everything but themselves, with what which are they then?

long ago at a Car con in NYC's Jacob Javits convention hall Scott Baio was that day's celebrity guest. there was a gaggle of laughing, mocking, pointing teeny girls and a pasty white youth on a small stage. i felt so sorry for that kid.

Bugsy Malone actually is an interesting and strange and worthwhile movie.

It's a mob movie, but everyone us a kid.
Instead of guns, they throw pies!  Really!

And Jodie Foster is in it.

It's just a little more bizarre than "Under the Rainbow"

Also, unless you want to be figuratively shredded into tiny pieces, don't heckle Patton at any of his comedy shows.

He can be brutal with comebacks.

Show you work on how you came to the conclusion that I am pro-baio?

I watched a show 20+ years ago.
That is not the same.

Patton didn't @ Baio. He made a joke skewering the Q-idiots, Baio saw his name and responded, because he's a pissy little thin-skinned biatch who responds to everything.

Lucy's crowning moment in that exchange was calling Sorbo "Peanut". It was like she was patting him on the head condescendingly using that one normally-innocuous word.

Well, almost everything. We haven't lured him into a Fark thread yet.

I propose Fark adds a SCOTT BAIO tag for the lulz. He's clueless enough he'd probably threaten cease and desist letters, because although he's not a lawyer, he's played a crummy one on TV.
