    I just happened to turn on Sirius in my car a little while ago and they were talking about the fake phone call to Peter Jennings during the OJ chase. Howard starts doing an impression of the fake caller with a 1920's over the top Southern Negro accent. Billy West jumps in out of nowhere to do a spot on Al Michaels impression. Robin can't let Billy have the spot light so she tries doing Al Michaels. At one point she says a joke that cracks herself up but nobody else. Therefore, she repeats the exact same joke 10 seconds later thinking they must not have heard her.

    I remember this happening a lot back then. Billy would be doing a Pat Cooper impression and Robin would constantly chime in trying to be Pat Cooper only entertaining herself.

    Common sense tells you when you aren't the funniest in the room you should let the professionals run the show. Her 34 ego and narcissism can't stop for one second. There has to be a name for this condition of forced/nervous laughter where she is constantly cracking herself up and no one else.

    I remember hearing them reenact that phone call word for word in one of the specials a few years ago. Maybe on the History of Howard Stern.

    She knows she's useless, deep inside, but she just laughs, and repeats/agrees with what Howard says so she can justify, in her own head, that she is an important part of the show... Howard wanted her as an excuse to get away with "sexist and racist" material... Of course, Mr. liberal open minded, yet closeted, Howie, doesn't do that kind of thing anymore, but it also means he's stuck with the annoyance that is Robin Quivers, because, as Buchwald has no doubt told Howard, it would be bad for his image to dump her. :D

    She's the worst, I can't remember how many times she killed the moment by explaining a joke which everyone in America already understood.

    I recently listened to the show from 2005 in which Sal and Richard were "hypnotized". While under "hypnosis", Sal revealed that he thinks that Robin has absolutely no talent whatsoever.

    Robin's most important contribution to the show was her generating bullshit for Jackie to mock her incessantly. Jackie's mockery of her was some good shit.

    She is always cracking herself up because she's afraid of no nobody laughing and when some one else does it she makes fun of them

    Robin's at her funniest when she does something unintentional. Getting cancer, for instance..

    It's also painful when Blobbin lectures people in her know-it-all voice on subjects that she's 100% wrong about. When Howard mentioned his mercury level was high she scolded him and said he should make sure to eat wild salmon instead of farm raised. I checked online (WebMD for one) and it turns out that wild salmon has 3 TIMES the amount of mercury that farm raised has. She's equally clueless on almost every topic, especially medical subjects where some people incorrectly believe she has some expertise. The average person on the street is more knowledgeable on health issues than "nurse" Robin.

    There should be more Robin sightings out there. I wonder where has she been hiding herself?:)

    I'm sure there are examples of Blobin being funny. I can't recall any, but it must of happened, what....at least once.

    It was funny how pissed Robin got when Howard went into passive aggressive mode.

    I'm guessing when she's not at the studio, Blobbin locks herself in her house and stuffs her face with ice cream and French fries. Whenever a major news event happens over a weekend or a vacation she's always completely unaware and uninformed about it.
