Bill Burr Hates Explaining That He’s from Canton
Be honest, if you live outside of Boston, you probably have told non-Bostonians that you hail from the city anyways just to avoid the hassle of explaining where exactly in Massachusetts you actually live.
It’s a common and often frowned upon strategy, but if you’re not a people person like Bill Burr, you’ve likely employed it from time to time.
Burr stopped by the Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday night and explained to the late night host why he tells people he’s from Boston instead of his hometown of Canton.
“I always say I’m from Boston because if I say I’m from Canton, people go, ‘Ohio?’ and then I got to go, ‘No Massachusetts,'” Burr said. “Just that little extra thing slowly kills me, that I have to have that back and forth. So I just say I’m from Boston.”
He added, “I’m a loner man. I don’t like people.”
We get it Bill, attempting to explain to strangers where Boston proper actually ends is the absolute worst. Plus, who wouldn’t want to say they were from Boston?
