    I never found howies parents entertaining. Anytime wiggy had them on I had to turn the channel. They are old farts that howie tried to make interesting, mainly trying to impress his dad.

    I liked hearing from Wiggy's parents and his impressions of them.

    His mother infuriates me. She's got moderate to severe mental health issues and below average intelligence. Add to that her intense need to control Howard and her perception that she actually has above average intelligence and you end up with a psychopath that denies her child lidocaine during major dental work and convinces that child that physical activity and outdoor recreation are not only unhealthy but dangerous.

    Howard's parents don't bother me, I sometimes think they are funny. What's very strange and creepy to me is when Howard talks about his mother and her naked body and what his father might have done with her sexually. He gets so graphic----this is his mother for god's sake.

    I like the appearance (and impressions) of the parents. But just like most parts of the show, the impressions jumped the shark a long time ago. The last few times I heard Howard do the impression, it was painfully forced and not funny. When was the last time either called in? Rae might actually be a good call if she was unfiltered and honest about what happened to her little Howchie.

    Yes and yes.

    They've overstayed their welcome--the impressions, I mean--and the last time I found them funny was when Artie was still on the show and Wiggy was imitating his father talking about losing 7 layers of skin.

    And Kennedy is soooo topical. I wish he'd do an F. Murray Abraham impression while he was at it.
