    Multiple times in the past, King has commented on her giant smile -- "that smile..."

    But on the Mon show, he took it a step further:

    KOAB: How do you like your women Howard? You don't like them too smart, right?

    Ronnie: [Laughs heartily] Oh man, that's a real major insult.

    Howard: Whaddaya mean...whaddaya mean by that??

    KOAB: No...no...I'm not sayin' that...

    Ronnie: [In case the audience missed the subtlety, Ronnie clarifies for us.] You just called his wife stupid, you moron.

    Howard: Yeahh...

    KOAB: Nononono, listen.

    Ronnie: Oh yes you did

    Howard: [Clumsy attempt at defection by pretending it never came up and proceeding to ask Robin an unrelated question. Then Howard tries to get him off the phone ("I gotta get back to news") but KOAB presses on.]

    KOAB: No but, you gotta tell me, do you like them [talked over by Howard]

    Howard: [In kind of an exhausted, rehearsed, unconvinced, rote manner.] I like a very smart woman. I like a woman who can engage me in conversation who has got a...[loses steam]

    KOAB: Awwww, get outta here

    Howard: Allright, goodbye

    Robin: [Says something no one cares about]

    KOAB: You know he likes them kind of naive

    Howard: Noo, no. I need a woman to engage me.

    Booey:
    [Chimes in for boff with another defection attempt, and this time KOAB bites; at which point Howard manages to get King off the phone.]

    Of course, Howard handled it as he usually does when outmaneuvered: By pretending it didn't happen or defection or changing the subject or just surrendering and hanging up.

    What a defeated loser. He can't even argue effectively anymore because he has no ammo.

    What can Howard do in that argument though? "Yeah I know, my wife's a complete idiot." I mean it's true but still

    He could say 'my wife is smart!' but that's kind of the point: His positions are indefensible anymore.

    Sorry I have to defend Howard here, He is married to a moron who posts pictures on the internet with cats everyday. Not sure what he can say in this situation other then to try to move past it and not talk about it.

    But but but... he could mention that she speaks 4 languages and was only a few credits shy of graduating college.
    Yeah, I am just kidding. :bounce:

    Let's be real... how do you defend the smarts of a wife who didn't even know how to save a Word document to "write" her first "bestseller" book. Seriously.

    I suppose one great defense would have been to marry someone else -- like Amal Clooney.
