    Couldn't agree more. He's filled with venom and just barely manages to conceal it. (And it's not even reserved for people who have provoked him; he once proudly said on the WUS that when he sees a midget in public, his wife knows she has to hold him back so that he doesn't run up to them and point and laugh.)

    I would've liked to have heard Fred and Benjy actually get into it today after Fred said Benjy was "dicky" to Fred's friends, but anyone who's heard Fred debate knows he has just three tactics: baby talk mockery of his opponent, where he sounds like a deranged schoolyard bully; the fake high road, where he acts as though he's above it all (while working in low blow after low blow at his opponent); and "gun to a knife fight", where he counters any slight with something disproportionately cruel and hurtful. He displayed them all today.

    There's no doubt that Fred's a walking time bomb. I just hope we get to hear him go off one day, and lose his job as a result.

    It was all schtick. First Benjy versus Robin, now Benjy versus Fred. That the HSS's idea of good radio.

    Definitely not schtick today. (I didn't hear Benjy versus Robin.) Howard threw Benjy into the 5 Favorite Staffers mix as a joke so that Fred could do his usual expected jab against Benjy, but Fred took it further than anyone expected, including Benjy, when he said Benjy was dicky to his friends, then refused to elaborate. I hate Benjy schtick as much as anybody else, but this was not that. This was Fred being a fucking asshole.

    Yes, after 20 years of listening, I believe that Fred really is an angry, miserable bully.

    I read some of Fred's twitter the other day....Hilarious! He almost shits on Benjy with every post and even seems to make fun of the current state of the show, it's worth checking out I was surprised

    You guys who dismiss every aspect of the show as fake are inadvertently giving way too much credit to the Stern Show crew as writers and actors.

    Sorry but Fred really is a miserable POS. I also think he has Aspergers (or however you spell that).

    :secret:whatever person you think you are following is not Fred. Fred has stated publicly that he does not use twitter.

    Oh, we're talking about the bit specifically?

    Yeah, who fuckin' knows. They likely "wrote" something in one of those stupid meetings that they wanted Fred to do a list of his "faves" on the show.

    I'm sure they planned on hilarity ensuing, but like most times, no dice.

    You're right to be 100% suspicious of anything involving Benjy, but this was not fake. Benjy only chimed in when Fred made the comment about him being dicky to Fred's friends, and that was to ask what Fred was talking about. (He was talking about the Benjy/Robin fight last week that I still haven't heard.) But Fred refused to elaborate at first and quickly reverted to his baby talk tactic when Benjy rightfully asked him to explain himself, and after that Benjy said Fred was a fucking asshole with so much fucking anger. Just listen to it and you'll know that this is a rare Benjy segment that isn't driven by schtick.
