1. I've never posted on a message board before. However, I did google "what is a message board" to confirm that I am posting on one now. 2. I'm a new fan of the stern show. I bought a car a year ago that came with satellite and I got pretty obsessed with watching/listening stern on youtube. Probably that alone is not a super great reason to hate me, but wait until you get to 5. (Please note that obviously it's worth your time to read the rest of this because, as I went to great lengths to point out, i once bought a car.) 3. This post is not funny (unlike much of the other content here) and it doesn't get funny later on. 4. This post is probably already too long, and the longest bit is still to come. I'm sorry.. I'm overly excited. But here's why I'm here. 5. I've been lurking around other posts on this board and I love them. But then I saw that maybe people (e.g. the vashir guy who i guess is powerful but i don't know why) are shutting down elisa podcast posts? That's bad news for me; I heard about this website because of @Thedomina on the few bits of the show I've seen and, despite hating benjy before, I'm now sort of transfixed by him. Before Elisa's podcast, benjy's schtick was no more interesting to me than was Sal's "I have never heard of anything ever before" bit... but benjy and elisas on the podcast (minus obv fake crying) are so consistent with their bits on the stern show... Is everything a goof? If so, is it so bad of a goof that it ruins the bit (like when Sal's bits aren't funny because they're so transparent...), or is it kind of amazing (even though it is, unequivocally, not funny...)? I can't tell. Please help.
