"Babies are selfish": Louis C.K. expounds on why babies cry on planes in comedy special sneak-peek

Ah yes, a Louis C.K. special is coming soon

Published January 26, 2015 11:14PM (EST)

Louis C.K. has an upcoming comedy special, "Live at the Comedy Store." And today the comedian dropped the following morsel on the Internet to pique our interest. Well the sneak-peek bait worked (at least for me).

Naturally, even in a brief five-minute clip the comedian managed to take the observational and morph it into the absurd. C.K. begins by stating he was curious why babies cry on planes: "So, I looked it up and it turns out there’s an actual reason that babies cry on airplanes. And it’s that they’re upset that gay people are getting married."

"I don’t agree with them," C.K. continues. "I think if people are in love, they should get married. But they can’t accept that. They’re just being babies. Babies are selfish."

The full hour is coming soon, for $5.oo on Louis C.K.'s website, until then watch this clip below:
