    While listening to Geek Week I find myself to be continually annoyed with Howard touting himself as an authority on various comic book and sci-fi subjects. He barely knows anything. He struggles to even state the most superficial factoids.

    Wonder if Gary will ever get Comedy Bang Bang guy in. Sounds like Jason and John Hein are in love with Scot Aukerman.

    It was funny because on the WUS John Hein was saying that Howard is a huge Superman expert but he constantly got things wrong during their discussions. Wiggy thought the old TV show was only on for 2 years (it was 6), he claimed both Lois Lanes were played by an actress with "Noel" in her name (only one was), and there were several other details he was totally wrong about.

    He read a few comic books (like almost every boy aged 8-12 did at some point back in the olden days) when he was in Jew Camp right before he started banging the entire camp every summer and then moved on to banging models....and that's where the extent of his knowledge starts and stops and why the self-declared expert on Spider-Man, Batman, Daredevil, Superman, ect. doesn't even seem to know basic common knowledge type stuff about the characters and mixes up what he thinks he knows with shit he saw on cheesy tv show versions.

    Wait until he finds out the new Spider-Man is a pickle sniffer and MJ is a dude.

    Mmmmmmmm......big thick Spider-cock....

    Howard really does have a low IQ, very low recall of simple facts, a base misunderstanding of the world and how it really works, no science or math skills. He does know marbles and cruel humor that made him those marbles.

    Have you guys seen Jamie Foxx as Electro in the next Amazing Spiderman movie? Hoo boy, the first movie was shit and this one looks to be even worse. On top of that Pig Vomit, aka Paul Giamatti plays the Rhino.

    Is anyone surprised by this? Howard used to have a strong curiosity about a lot of things. Now he's only into penis and money.

    He also avoids intellectual challenges: Married a bimbo, dropped chess, surrounds himself with yes men, takes only ass-kissing phone calls.

    I remember he tried to impress Uma Thurman with his knowledge of comic books after she said she used to be into them. She asked him a question about the X-Men that he didn't know the answer to and was about to ask another but he cut her off. I think his excuse was that he wasn't into the "underground" stuff.

    Not knowing about comics and sci-fi is a good thing.

    By "I'm into comics" Howard means he flipped through a few issues of MAD magazine 30 fuckin years ago.
