‘Difficult People’: Watch a Hilarious Compilation of the Best Pet Names Arthur Gives Julie

Have you ever been called “whiffle bat,” “water bug,” or “mouse pad?" Julie has.

Difficult People


Think back to some of the best nicknames that your friends, family or significant other has given you. Those names usually stick around for a couple of years, if not forever, right? Well in the Hulu comedy “Difficult People,” Julie’s (Julie Klausner) boyfriend, Arthur (James Urbaniak), has a slew of creative pet names that he gives her throughout the first two seasons.

The randomness of the nicknames are just too fun not to mention, and that’s why the folks at Hulu created a fun compilation video of a handful of silly things Arthur has called Julie in the past episodes. Included in the batch are names like “whiffle bat,” “water bug,” “mouse pad,” “thin mint” and the most-used “noodles.” It doesn’t stop there, there’s also “spinach,” “spray cheese” and my favorite, “lava lamp.” Check them all out in the hilarious clip below.
