As far as bars, you heard wrong if you heard continent
It's incontinence, inconsequent turned sponsorin'
Earl has a nice double meaning in the first part of this line. If you didnt lose control of your bowels when you heard the first line then you didn’t hear it correctly.
The second way to interpret this is that if you heard the word “continent” instead of “compliment” then you misheard the line. Thus your view of his skills would go from inconsequent or illogical to worth of being sponsored. Genius.
