    I believe HS mentioned on-air once that he uses approximately 5 jokes per day written by Benjy. I just read multiple pages of Benjy's twitter page. He's obviously trying be funny, but I found nothing witty or fresh that warrants the label of "great writer" on any level. Contrived, pushed/forced, and trite come to mind.

    If this thread goes the way of: waffles, seahorses, rainbows, chairs, favorite childhood toys, or whatever, I understand. Just curious if someone has insight to what I'm not seeing?

    Howard was also drunk when he said it. He'd have praised anyone at that point.

    Didn't he thank the fans too? An evening of fiction for sure.

    Can you point to something funny Howard has said in the last four years (and he uses Benjy's "jokes")

    i can't... i have not even chuckled in that time frame. Benjy is an awful writer and he wears 3 inch platform shoes that just makes him an unfunny terd.

    I'm sure Benjy is quite capable of writing lots of funny jokes when he is given the opportunity to get in the groove. Nobody performs at the top of their game when they are part timers.

    I know multiple clowns that wear high heeled shoes to increase their height. I mean, platforms.
