    He described ex-lover M.I.A.'s 2010 album as a 'turd,' dismissed her marriage to Benjamin Bronfman, and excoriated her as 'glamoriziing terrorism.'
    He could do a few more bench presses.
    His alter ego, Major Laze, was a zombie-fighting militant Jamaican.

Why he might not be annoying:

    He studied at Temple University.
    He worked as a school teacher.
