    Given society's substantially more relaxed and tolerant attitude for people who are not heterosexual, why does Grandma Gunky continue his "fag shenanigans?" Doesn't he see how outmoded and out of step with reality it is to do GAY LOL behavior like kissing and humping men? It is neither fun nor funny.

    I believe most people who see it imagine Howard Stern to be an elderly man who could not be true to himself sexually in a more bigoted age so now in his rich, old age he does now what he never could do in the past. Didn't Howard always say that there was nothing sadder than old queen? I disagree. The only thing sadder is an old queen in the closet.

    Stern should do more comedically relevant things on AGT, like Ted Kennedy and Liza Minnelli impersonations.

    Watching Howard try to kiss and hump men is not funny. However Sal and Richard's gay antics are still funny.

    One can be tolerant of gays yet still find homosexual acts between two men disgusting.

    He actually thinks it's funny 30 years and 3 million times later.

    If he wants to go mainstream, why does he do this stuff on AGT, like kiss Howie and hump Nick Cannon?

    Isn't Cannon the genesis of Closet Stern's "8 inches is perfect" quote?

    He has nothing else. There's decades of evidence to support this.

    Jerry Lewis still thinks crossing his eyes and pretending he has buck teeth is good comedy.

    I meant when he was growing up in the 1960s and 1970s. Surely you are not going to act like society's attitude and treatment of gay men isn't better now than it was 40 years ago?

    This was exactly the point I was going to bring up. Jerry's comedy never evolved. He sill thought repeating certain bits for 60 years were still funny. Case in point...

    Stern's gay bits were funny back in the day because he had Jackie feeding him material. Left on his own he is tragically unfunny. If Howard lives to be as old as Ben stern, he'll still rely on these same old unfunny shenanigans like trying to kiss a dude. You think it's creepy now, wait 20 years.

    This. Creatively, Howard is a spent force.

    Hire a young, talented, truly funny writer to help him be funny again? Howard is too intellectually lazy and too fiscally cheap to do that.

    So Howard is wealthy and complacent, but he still wants the spotlight and more $$$. Therefore he goes back to the same tired old schtick he's done for years.

    For a person who so desperately wants to "evolve", his hacky bits on TV are firmly from the early 70's
