    A while back Stern admitted that when he gets photographed on the couch with guests that Jason stands on a box to photograph him from a downward angle.

    Today he picked up a caller who asked him if they have a flat Howard because every picture of him on the couch is identical because he strikes the same pose.

    Surprisingly he was honest and says he hates getting photographed and found that he has two angles, ugly and even more ugly. The caller even asked if guests have asked to sit on the end of the couch and Howard still makes them move.

    What is interesting is there is a good chance this was related to the thread on this board where somebody put an animation together of dozens of those photos showing that Howard always forces the guest to move down on the couch so they can photograph his "good side.

    We know the callers and heavily screened and Howard knows what they are going to ask ahead of time. I was surprised he wanted to answer this topic because perhaps even he realizes how ridiculous it is. Of course Robin was clueless about it as she is with most show topics.

    But wait, Howard's OCD was cured by reading a book about back pain, wasn't it? I mean, he's told everyone else with OCD that all they need to do is read a book and it will go away just like his.

    Btw, I still think OCD with Howard is really GAY. He can say it's OCD to care so much about his positioning for a photograph. I call it gay.

    There are 67 photos in that GIF :grad:

    And when the woman asked about Flat Howard, I got my hopes up that she was talking about Instagram non-sensation @flathowie.

    I'm sure one of his douchebags brought this to his attention so he thought he would address it.

    I thought the book also cured his "gay" tendencies as well....

    He doesn't have OCD just because he thinks he has a good side and is a raging egomaniac.

    Megan Fox got fired from the Transformer movies for saying something like that against her director.

    "Of course Robin was clueless about it as she is with most show topics."


    At this stage, Robin does nothing but show up. Not only does she not prepare, but she does not even read her email or answer her phone. It occasionally becomes clear that she does not even talk to other staff members off the air, except on rare occasions. Absolutely nothing is expected of her, except to show up which, admittedly, she is pretty good at.

    And it is also clear that as a "news woman," she is slightly unorthodox in that she does not read or watch the news. She is no longer even involved in preparing her stories.

    Gunk has to carefully plan his post Wiggypedia shots to avoid another 9/11.

    Has Beth not made her 10k post yet? Maybe she's passed out.
