    ...then please listen to the first caller from today's show, "Karen". This was quite possibly the most ridiculous set up in show history. Wiggy picked up on her and she said the following, "Good morning, Howard. Hey, have you been following the news of Boko Haram? It's really depressing". Honest to God, it sounded like the lead-in to an SNL skit.

    At this point, without missing a beat, Wigward immediately cut her off and proceeded to go on a 5 minute, completely uninterrupted diatribe filled with all sorts of prepackaged, pre-researched, recently memorized minutiae such as the names of their leaders, the etymology of the group's name - all shit that he wouldn't otherwise have had a clue about in a million years.

    Needless to say, not one more word was uttered by "Karen" after her initial greeting and question. Not that this is anything new, but rarely have I heard such a blatant example of their ridiculous canned content.

    I've always assumed a good chunk of everything on the show is at least roughly somewhat scripted or whatever
    I assume most live entertainment is to some degree

    I heard that, not once did Karen try to give her two cents....so fckn phony.

    New listeners will never know that the Wig used to take regular calls when he interviewed people, that was the best.

    Is this an attempt to rebrand Howard as an intellectual? Sounds ridiculous but that plus the Rapper call yesterday seems to be pointing in that direction.

    It's all Beefus's fault. He never used to do that before they were married.

    Did a caller mention a wig?

    Or Kittens?

    I'll hang up and listen.

    The OP is incorrect. Gunky is up on current events.

    He reads the paper with Yoda everyday.
