    then why is he playing Shuli embedded with Underdog Woman?

    Her shtick is 25 yrs old at this point.

    What the fuck?

    Agree. But the truth is that he doesn't have as much material to work with either - and he has himself to blame for much of that.

    A large portion of his show used to be staff fights, goofing on the staff and of course the wack packers. For whatever stupid reason he decided to fire the news department and a large portion of the staff and, of those that remain, they are largely never heard from due to his ridiculous format change.

    He is running out of wack packers. ETM, Hank the Dwarf, Blue Iris, etc. are dead. Beetlejuice is, for the most part, retired. High Pitch Eric does nothing but eat. How often can he make fun of his weight and dietary choices? At least, in the old days, he was a con artist and engaged in criminal activity to goof on. His evolution/ new PC image prevents him from really being able to goof on Wendy or Gary like they used to.

    Sure, Howard still highlights Jeff the Drunk (now "Jeff the Bore"), but he is so ridiculously boring these days that they had to invent "Jeff's lump" (which they have driven into the ground). Bobo is the same deal... boring and the goofing on him is 25 years old as well (except now they make up stupid songs about how horrible he is).

    Beth should adopt Underdog Lady and find her a "forever home".

    Daniel Carver, Elliott Offen, KC, Beetlejuice, and the angry drunken dwarf were awesome. Underdog lady, not so much.

    Not really. Lately, he has been singing karaoke on periscope that they goof on. But nothing like the old days - much of his humor was based on him getting shit faced. Now, he doesn't do much so they have some hack comedian pretending to be a lump on his body that makes fun of him.

    It was easy to find wackpackers when he was on regular radio. Now people have to pay to hear him. Wackpackers tend to be poor.

    I feel sad for Underdog. I don't get any enjoyment out of hearing recordings of her in desperate tears, or tapes of Shuli calming her into trusting him, or hearing Shuli in the studio laughing at her for trusting him. Of all the mentally unstable people Howard exploits, this one makes me the most uncomfortable.

    Beth is just as fucked up as underdog . Once she hits that age she will be the joke of some young DJ just getting into radio now . I'm going to laugh like hell when beef is old and crazy with her mutant cats .

    Howard hates doing the same old bits, then does 40-year old Ted Kennedy Chappaquiddick jokes.
