It'd be one thing if he displayed any sense that he is in fact enjoying himself. I mean some people are shit-stirrers because they revel in the conflict or they at least can avoid taking it too seriously and have fun with it. Dobson however is blatantly, extremely fragile, getting deeply hurt over every single critical or disagreeing comment... and yet he never, ever passes up a chance to start shit. The amount of negativity there is astounding... and yet, even in the closest thing he's come to self-awareness on this, one of those convention comics, he has to avert responsibility by showing himself being literally lifted and yanked through the air against his will to the person starting the argument, like it's that guy's fault for pulling him over instead of his own for going.
Weirdly it's sort of like Dobson is acknowledging his own NPC nature... he's saying none of his behavior is his own fault, it's all beyond his control what he does, just like he'd been programmed that way.
I’d say Dobson’s ego somehow gets off to getting negative reactions.
