    OK, so I've tried to listen a couple of times. Is it supposed to be funny? He asks Jeff the Drunk, HPE or Elephant Boy serious questions about current issues. Of course those retards don't even understand the questions and give nonsense answers. Their answers aren't funny though. What is the point of this show?

    If I remember correctly, the original concept of the show was to to have Lieberman do a topical news show. Guest would discuss relevant topics depending on the news of the week. Unfortunately Howard can't stand a show that might even be remotely interesting so he killed it's original concept. He said on the air just a few weeks ago to Lieberman,"What does that show have to do with this show?". So instead of guests that might bring some interesting and thoughtful insights on a topic, we get High Pitch Eric and Elephant Boys take on subjects like the death penalty or gun control. Very entertaining huh?

    It's brutal. I hate HPE under the best of circumstances, to hear his slushing his way through a man on the street interview is nauseating.

    The 15-minute format makes it tolerable....

    I think it's a lot better than Hairy Fish or H100 News 30-minute edition....it's nice to hear HOE, ETM & JTD talking without being interrupted by Fred or the bloated screeching ISDN monster or the Scarf-wearing ringmaster.

    It would be an interesting show if he didn't have retards on the panel. Asking whack packers their opinions on current events was funny the first 1-2 shows. I sometimes think Howard tries to do the opposite of entertaining the listeners of his channels.

    Exactly. As usual, they take what could be an entertaining concept and completely ruin it. The topics are interesting but just when you want hear more details they bring in some moron like Joey Boots or HPE to give their idiotic opinions and the show grinds to a halt. Then they abruptly switch to another subject and leave you hanging and wondering what the outcome of the previous story was. It's not the least bit funny, it's just irritating and makes me turn off the radio. If they eliminated the Wack Pack element it might be listenable but I'm sure they'd still manage to fuck it up somehow.

    Yes, I agree. This is why I'm confused. I could see it working as a straight news show. Or I could see it working as a goof (maybe...). But they seem to be combining the worst of both worlds.

    I recall it being 100% straight news early on. It wasn't bad at all. I suspect someone at the HSS told him to add whack packers or GTFO and go do straight news on another channel. It's got to be humiliating for him. He totally ignores the wp'er responses usually.
