San Francisco Giants: Brian Wilson's 10 Most Hilarious Quotes
Not only is Brian Wilson one of the best closers in major league baseball, he's also one of the funniest guys in baseball history.
There are hundreds of videos on YouTube of Wilson being interviewed at different times throughout his career, and every one of them is hilarious. It is much harder to find a quote of Wilson that isn't funny, than one that makes you cry from laughter.
After reading this list of hysterical quotes, I strongly recommend that you watch as many interviews as possible from Wilson, because you won't regret what you find.
No. 10. Did I Fart?

Quote: "It smells like eggs in here. Did you fart? Did I fart?"
His "Did I fart?" comment occurred during a clip of MLB taking posed pictures of him. Wilson mutters to himself, "It smells like eggs in here." He then pauses, thinks about it, and asks, "Did you fart? Did I fart?" to nobody in particular.
This quote is really funny in context, and I highly recommend that everyone watch the show located on the Giants home website.
No. 9. Sounds Delicious
Chris Rose- "C.J. Wilson just tweeted 'see your beard real soon.'"
Brian Wilson- "Sounds delicious."
This is such a typical Brian Wilson quote. Somebody, in this case Chris Rose, makes a simple statement, and Wilson responds with something that makes no sense.
The phrase "sounds delicious" is hysterical in any outside context, and this situation is no different!
No. 8. Brian Meets His Digital Self
Quote: Hello? Digital me, what do you want?
This is one of the top commercials 2K Sports has ever made. It shows Brian Wilson being interrupted by a phone call from his digital self, and of course, Wilson gets into a lengthy conversation with it.
Wilson's reaction right after he answers the phone is hilarious, and is what makes this commercial. The rest of his commentary is still funny, but the beginning is the best part.
No. 7. The Machine
Chris Rose- "Seriously, if you keep snapping your fingers, I think somebody else might appear."
Brian Wilson- "I don't think that should happen. I am here alone, like I am always."
If you have yet to see the video posted above, do it now! This is one of the first times when Brian Wilson showed how his mind truly works.
Wilson is playing with his dog Dubz, and has a man walk through the background, dressed in black straps and wearing a mask. Of course, Chris Rose is shocked and doesn't know what happened.
Wilson is holding back a laugh the entire time, which is why the clip is so funny.
No. 6. Brians Beard Part 1

Quote: "It's probably gonna become a problem if it gets below uh...my cleats might get caught."
After Wilson closed a game in Arizona, he was interviewed about his beard. The reporter asked how long his beard could grow, and Wilson responded that it may become a problem if it reached below his cleats.
Again, half the reason why his quotes are so funny, is because he makes weird expressions while he talks. If I were to say this same quote it wouldn't be as funny, but Wilson is dead serious, and makes the interviewer chuckle.
I'm not posting the video to this interview just yet, because it has another quote that's even funnier during the same clip and I don't want to spoil it.
No. 5. Chuck Norris

Quote: "Chuck Norris has been known to throw a baseball 100 mph. I've been known to throw Chuck Norris 100 mph."
It was extremely hard to only put this quote at number five, because I find it hysterical.
In this scenario, Wilson declares he can throw Chuck Norris 100 mph, which is random and out of the blue. Still, he says it with a completely serious expression, and makes the crowd burst into laughter.
No. 4. Its Time to Rage
Quote: "I'm feeling like I want to rage, right now,"
Can we really expect anything else from a post-World Series-interview? I think not.
Brian Wilson is asked how he's feeling, and at first he doesn't know what to say. He then responds with, "I'm feeling like I want to rage."
That part is pretty funny, but what really makes this clip, is when Wilson turns directly toward the camera, and finishes the clip with a "right now."
No. 3. Brians Beard Part 2
Quote: "Lets be honest here it's just doing what it wants and it…it just does what it wants"
Here is the interview from the previous Brian's Beard quote that I talked about.
After stating that he has no plans in shaving it, the interviewer asks if he trims the beard. Wilson is clearly annoyed at this point, and states that his beard has a mind of its own.
No. 2. Ninja Certification
Quote: "I’m a certified ninja. It happened in a dream. Normally it takes a lifetime, but I did it in 12 minutes.”
This interview took place with Jim Rome, and Brian Wilson decided to show off all of his tricks, including a phone call with "The Machine."
At one point Wilson declares that he became a certified ninja during a dream. His attitude is just hysterical, and he really couldn't care less about what anyone thinks about him.
I have to give B-Weezy major respect on this one, because talking about ninjas can land you in a white straight-jacket.
No. 1. Too Much Awesome
Jim Rome- "What was the fine for?"
Brian Wilson- "For having too much awesome on my feet."
This quote also took place during an interview with Jim Rome, and the video above includes that clip, along with some other funny Wilson moments.
For those who don't know, Brian Wilson was fined for wearing cleats with too much orange on them. Rome asked why he was given a fine at all, and Wilson responded with one of his typical quotes.
"For having too much awesome on my feet." Wilson stated.
That is absolutely hysterical and is his funniest quote ever in my opinion.
