If they must have a phony hypnotism bit, why use Sal?

    What an insult to the audience. Everyone knows Sal will spew any bullshit for the show, so why would Stern expect us to believe he was really hypnotized? Give me a break. Unless it is later "revealed" that Sal was faking, this brings the show to a new level of disrespect for the shrinking audience.

    We're already 20 feet below the sewer, not sure if the level can get any lower at this point. There's more entertainment in TLD's neg thread than in 2 hours of 'radio gold' these days. So WGAS...MFB you're on the phone...

    Today was a pure shit fountain. The ETM and Fratto shit fell flat this am. It was awkward and painful to listen too. The Sal being hypnotized bit was a god damn comedic tragedy and an insult to the intelligence of anyone who passed the first grade.

    The crap bit was probably Sal's idea in the first place. Although "Im a turtle" definitely sounds like something that would come out of Benjys empty head. I guess this kind of quality humor is what comes out of those Thursday "Writing meetings".

    i was bored and took a class in how to hypnotize people.

    sal definately described what it's like to be under, so i believe he got hypnotized.



    i have no idea what the turtle stuff is all about.

    The first time about Howards apt was radio gold. I must have listened to that show 20+ times.

    It's sad that they did another fake hypnotism bit at all. It's been done many times over the years and has only gotten worse. Just another example of the complete lack of talent and effort by the current staff, they're clearly incapable of coming up with an original entertaining idea for a bit. Really pathetic.

    Ugh, even back in the mid-90s when I was a rabid listener and fan, I hated, Hated, FUCKING HATED the hypnotism bits. During that time I mistakenly believed that the show was genuine and real...and yet the hypnotism bits were so blatantly, horribly phoney. They drove me nuts.

    Anyone of you gimps notice how Sal suddenly was able to speak with a great deal of accuracy and continental knowledge about places verbage and various other examples of high knowledge ?

    I saw the hypnotism bit live at the US Open Sores show at the Nassau Coliseum. It was FLAT OUT TERRIBLE. That was the first chink in the Stern armor for me.
