Similarity to Louis CK[edit]

A 2007 article in Radar magazine about joke theft noted widespread internet discussion of the similarity between the bits "Struck by a Vehicle," "Itchy Asshole," and "My Son Optimus Prime" from Cook's 2005 album Retaliation and the bits "Guy on a Bike," "Itchy Asshole," and "Kid's Names" from comic Louis C.K.'s 2003 album Live in Houston.[4]
