    I love the Robin bashing as much as anyone. Some of the funniest shit on this board is when people rip on her. Every so often though I feel she has a good line. When speaking to ETM about being in the NY Times crossword puzzle he kept grunting "I am not Eric the Midget" and she chimed in "well, you sound like him." That always made me laugh. She said he looked like a billy goat when he tried to grow a beard and he got pissed when she said he went to a beauty parlor to get his midget head painted. Actually it's probably Eric that I find so funny. Fuck Robin.

    Be nice if she found the edge of a razor, the way she acts sometimes.

    Be nice. She might have come at it the long way, but she "evolved" into an edgier person (or personality), while Howard "evolved" in another direction, which has been well documented here. For the 20 years I've been listening, I've given her a ton of credit. She's a great foil.

    BUT WHY THE FUCK DON'T WE KNOW WHAT'S GOING ON WITH HER? I hate it, BUT is that how she's made herself more interesting? Hmmmm... Isn't everyone way more curious about what's going on with her than Howard these days? Fait accomplis. Well played, lady. (I assume.)

    I lost the last morsel of respect for her when she blasted Richard Christie and called him an asshole.

    "That darkie cocksucker can rot in hell for all I care!" :c

    She was always miserable and elitist.

    Her news was only listenable when they had a comedian in there to make it funny. Jackie, Billy doing voices, Artie, Gilbert sitting in....

    She really serves little purpose now. She's just angry at the world. I get someone being angry if they are dealt a raw deal, but she's taking it out on everyone else.

    I know what you mean. I used to listen to the show religiously and every once in a while Robin would get in a zinger that gave me a good chuckle and I'd think "Why does everyone hate Robin so much? She's not so bad.."

    And then she'd do or say something so dumb I had to chalk up her previous witty joke to being the result of a mini-stroke or something.

    Even death wouldn't make Robin likable. The same can be said for Beth as well though too . . .

    I agree with you. Her news has always been, um, lazy at best? And it's not just lately, it's that the internet makes it more apparent. But it used to be a better source of comedy. Not Robin's fault that it isn't anymore.

    She may have been dealt a raw deal. If she's truly sick, it's very typical that someone would feel that way. BUT you can't fault her for being angry, and that was historically part of Howard's appeal. Those two are pendulums swinging at opposite rhythms. She got harder, he got softer. Don't get me wrong-- the show sucks now, but I'm fine with Robin being who she is now (EXCEPT FOR THE SECRECY).

    God, I miss Artie.

    Robin would be great if the office pussies, Howard and Fred fired back at her idiotic comments. They're all muzzled. Without Jackie to fire back at her, Robin became a fucking untouchable and her comments hang in the air like a horrendous fart. As a result, we all suffer.

    i too think the criticism of robin on here is funny, but i've noticed recently (while listening to new shows as well as shows from 5 years ago) that she definitely does have more effective one-liners than some people on this board give her credit for.
