Sean Patton (Conan, Comedy Central Presents) and I discuss Obsession, Compulsion, Animal behavior, Self-Diagnosis and Racism. It's Grrrrrreacist. Which is to say, it's great and about racism, not great and racist. I know, it's confusing. 

Also, OCD looks like a few disorganized letters from the word Comedy, which is probably more annoying if you have OCD.
