The Last Word On "Faggot"

I've really been enjoying Louie, the new show by Louis CK. The scene below is from one of the recent episodes and involves a discussion of the use of the word faggot in stand-up comedy, along with some other gay topics.


It's worth noting that they probably got the etymology of faggot wrong, although a friend of mine told me he saw an interview where Louis CK acknowledged that he knew it might be wrong but said the show being realistic didn't actually mean that everything said on the show would have to be accurate, because sometimes people think and say things are are incorrect.
