    And people say those guys have a lack of effort and Howard brags he is all in! Mister 100 Shows a Year, 14 Weeks Vacation, scurrying away at 10:00 on the
    dot to take a helicopter ride to his fucking mansion never does shit like this. Ever. It was just funny guys hanging out for an hour.
    It wasn't Howard Stern's therapy session with T.I. It was just funny! God, imagine that, something billed as a comedy show was comedic.
    Could Evolved Howard do anything like Ant and Jimmy shooting the shit with T.I. or would that be too funny, pardon me, unevolved?

    If somebody is still listening to Howard over Opie and Anthony or a podcast, I would love to know why. I would.

    I listen to both. Howard still has his moments. Granted, they are very few.

    As they should, they weren't even relevant at their peak even where Howard is now being a part-timer.

    Oh, and if you aren't a closeted homosexual you can talk to a man for an hour without sincerely questioning him
    about how big his cock is with slaver and drool on your mouth. You really can! If you aren't a faggot.

    Great segment and the hosts weren't talking like wiggers either to make the black guests feel like they were in the hood

    Fairly new to O&A and loving their show. I can't remember the last time Wiggy was as entertaining. Even in his prime, Stern was nothing but a master salesman and shill, fooling his audience into thinking he was "rebellious." It was all a contrived act with Stern, from the very beginning, trying so desperately to live the life he's living and leading right now. He was nothing more than a middle class (or upper middle class -his father made decent coin) Jewish boy from Long Island, aspiring to one day become rich and hobnob with the rich and famous. He achieved that and now there is nothing left of him to give.

    Opie and Anthony, especially Anthony and Norton, are far more talented (and real) than Stern has ever been.

    And this is what they get in return....(the mouse from today. Complete with a rollerball on the bottom and a PS/2 port. Who needs USB?)

    Increased effort does not equate to a better show. All it means is that you have more hours of Opie whining, screaming, and parroting Anthony whenever he does an impression or tells a joke. At least they have been consistently mediocre throughout their careers. Howard was great for 20 years and has been mediocre since he married that empty vessel.

    I think you're giving Howard too much credit. Howard was never great (other than in his own mind) and for the past few years he hasn't been mediocre, but pretty much unlistenable.

    I moved on to Jay Thomas, and that was that.

    op it's easy to stop thinking about howard when you're not obsessed.. just let him go faeg, it's over.

    you're wrong about that. while O&A can never measure up to howard's best years, they do a very good job of keeping me laughing and amused. i've reached the point where i can't listen to howard...he infuriates me.
