You Wouldn’t Like Me When I’m Angry: Every Single Reason Bruce Banner Loses His Shit in the 70’s Hulk TV Show

Let’s face it, if I was the Hulk it’d be a pretty boring affair that essentially involved me accidentally destroying my house whenever I had to deal with Comcast. That would in fact be awkward but fortunately for TV audiences, 70’s Bruce Banner just so happened to be the most hilariously unlucky motherfucker in history. I’m actually only posting this because I couldn’t make it through more than like 15 of the 131 reasons without losing my shit laughing. Also, I now sort of want to watch all of this. (from Kenneth

  1. Being beaten up and thrown down a well


  1. Having his friend tell the New York “syndicate” that David has their money,

so that their enforcers chase David back to his apartment, and then having all his

balcony into the smelly trash cans by same enforcers


  1. Being stuck in a cab in New York rush hour traffic – “You don’t understand, I

so relax.” – “BUT I HAVE TO BE THERE BY FOUR!!!”
