Remember the old days when Howard could talk to Beet, Bigfoot, Andrea, Hi Pitch, ETM or any of the wackpackers and it would be FUNNY? What happened to that? There is no wackpacker that is funny anymore, and I don't think it's all their fault, or that all the funny wackpackers are gone. There are a few classic wackpackers left but when Howard talks to them he can't muster up anything to get the funny out of them. Why not? Howard doesn't even know what to talk to them about anymore. He rushes them off the phone and it sounds very awkward.
