    I know this is beating a dead horse, and that this is glaringly obvious to everyone here but just imagine if this was 10 years ago.

    After the justin bieber arrest yestarday, a pop cultural moment of absoute hilarity and pathetic behavior (as well as hilariously overdone news coverage, the crown jewlel being andrea mitchell, an alleged serious journalist for nbc, cutting off a conversation on nsa survailliance with a congresswoman to report late breaking bieber nes) all of us would have gone to bed thursday night with excited anticipation about what Howard's take on the news would be the next day.

    When ballbusting mockery would he rain down on bieber?
    What hilarious bits would be prepared?
    What song parodies would be played on the air?
    What news clips would be played and what broadcasters would be mocked?
    Who from bieiber's camp, what local police, or what local florida residents at the scene would be calling into the show with antecdotes?
    Who would Captian janks be pranking and how pissed would they be?
    What would Gilbert have to say about the situation when he sits in for the news?

    Instead 4 days later, after everything has been said by and done other broadcasters, late night talkshow hosts, and commentators, and all the comedy gold has been mined, Howard will make some humorlous and predictable observations on the situation (most likely a 2 bit psychoanalis) and then start talking about kittens/ what beth is wearing to the birthday party/agt/ or gay marriage.

    The King of All Media and the Prince of All Tweenia joined forces on the social networking site Friday, much to the surprise of fans on both sides.

    Bieber reached out first, tweeting:

    u and Beth. Go see it this weekend and bring Fred.#welcometotwitter
