Well that was fast.

The video of an altercation involving unofficial Cubs mascot Billy Cub appeared Tuesday on Comedy Central’s “Tosh.0” just weeks after it was uploaded to YouTube. In the viral video, Billy Cub punches a bar patron who yanked off the head of his bear costume at John Barleycorn in Wrigleyville.

“Not cool,” said “Tosh.0” host Daniel Tosh. “Taking his mask off means he has to actually watch the Cubs play.”

If you’re upset about that joke, then you probably shouldn’t watch the video below and should stop reading. It gets worse.

Tosh – an equal opportunity offender – pointed out to viewers that Billy Cub isn’t actually affiliated with the team. “The Cubs official mascot,” Tosh said, “is just a fat guy crying.” And like fellow Comedy Central personality Jon Stewart, Tosh also addressed Chicago’s deep dish pizza: “Between their baseball teams and their gross pizza, I’m starting to think people in Chi-CAW-go like things that suck.”

Not his best line, but the Miami sports fan recovered with a vicious low blow.

“Do you know what the Cubs and Bulls have in common? Tosh said. “Derrick Rose doesn’t play for either one.”
