You would be forgiven for thinking that Bernie does all the hard work when it comes to putting society on its arse and generally going out of his way to upset and annoy people. That’s not necessarily the case.
He also likes to sit back and let his friends do the hard work for him. He achieves this by befriending some of the most tactless halfwits possible, and following them around to soak up the awkwardness.
See here, for example, as a good-natured attempt to take interest in others turns into a moment where one would rather eat his own socks and jump into swimming pool full of sick.
Bernie just has to retire, and let his friends light the blue touch paper.
