    I actually sat through that Stamos interview today ( :oops: ) and cringed when Robin made that "chinks" remark, which Howard goofed on for a second, after which Robing half replied "Oh we can't do that anymore". It came out as if she accidentally spilled the beans, revealing something that the audience mustn't know and quickly silenced herself.

    5 more years of bullshit!

    If this has been discussed, feel free to tear me apart!

    Can't tear you apart because I don't listen to the show and don't know what you're talking about.

    Can you provide more of a context? Was Robin calling someone a chink?

    No, she was saying something about the "chinks in Stamos' armor", of course Howard jumped on it and said "Chinks? Chinks?!" and then the bullshit...

    Robin said something about 'chinks in the armor,' Howard was the one who made a joke out of it.

    I heard this too. They both sort of agreed they can't joke "like that" anymore :rolleyes: (after Robin reigned Howard in)

    It used to be that Artie or Jackie would make the off-color joke, and Robin could harrumph and Stern would play the maestro - further fostering the joke - but not directly - getting one of the henchmen to do it, so he could stay clean. Now, with no one in the Jackie chair but Benjy - there's no one to be the loud, off color comedian.

    I don't know if Stern would allow it now anyway. There was a time when the "N" word was a daily occurrence - I couldn't even imagine that on the show without someone getting fired now.

    It is a different time, but Stern has made no effort to find a way to be "Shocking".

    Sirius has not gotten a dime out of me for over a year - and the new contract does nothing to make me want to pay for this.

    How did chinks get in Stamos's armor? They are a sneaky bunch I suppose.

    The Chinese are a sneaky bunch. If you're not careful, they will take up residence in your armor.

    Can I still make jokes about gooks? This is all very confusing.
