    Can someone give a few specific examples of benji contributions to show that are good or funny?

    Like most people ( i assume) i get so bored and irritated when benji speaks that i've grown to hate the sound of his voice. I can't help but assume (perhaps incorrectly) that someone as unlikable and seemingly incapable of self-awareness so much so/to the degree that he continues to exclusively behave on mic in selfish boorish ways (when even non-professionals realize radio is an entertainment medium whereby words need to be entertaining) can not possibly be the polar opposite when "writing for the show".
    I know howard and gary defend benji as being "talented".
    I can't possibly imagine that is true, and i want to be wrong and i would like someone to give me a few specific examples that i agree are clever and funny so when i am subjected to benji's boring b.s. I won't resent the show as much for continuing to allow benji on the air.

    I don't want to find benji so worthless and irritating and boring. Someone, please help!!!!!!!!

    The only time he is funny is when he is a boor and a lout around people who so desperately crave attention and approval from people that they consider underlings.

    Benjy can wind up Gary so well.

    Just recently the spat over Benjy's girlfriend and employee's girlfriends and wives made Booey go batshit.
    Benjy gave no fucks. It was pretty funny.

    "I'll pull you from the show!"
    "Oh yeah. I'm right here. Pull me from the show, have at it. Pull me from the show...pull my cock!"

    There is a big difference between not being funny and being unfunny.

    Benjy is unfunny. He actually makes situations less funny. He kills the funny...

    Passive-aggressive Benjy in a wig was kinda funny- only becuase I think he was quietly busting Howard's balls.

    I thought it was funny when he would run into the studio late then get bitched at.

    I think there was one day where he was out sick. The show was actually funny that day. So his contribution to the show to make it funny was not contributing.

    The phony call he does to that old lady and he acts like a horse is funny.

    This is funnier than the last 627 Tradio calls, but then again, that isn't exactly a compliment.

    KC spraying his ass with water to clean it like an elephant. More KC than Benjy though.

    I remember Howard throwing out an Anne Frank reference / joke that seemed out of the blue. It wasn't funny. I assumed it was from Benjy.
