    He was on O&A today and was very funny as a guest, but then they got to why he was there. He's plugging his new :quote:CD:quote: It is him in a studio telling really bad jokes that he wrote when he was starting out. And they are actually really bad. I'm not sure what the point is but they played a good 10 minutes of it and not one single joke was even remotely funny. If it were just a bit I would get it for a few minutes, yeah he was bad, yeah he's come a long way, but this is actually a whole album of this garbage. Later he was on Ferral doing the same thing. And they played more of it.

    I don't know if he actually expects anyone to pay for this shit but I'd rather listen to a half hour of Dane Cook and Carrot Top farting into a microphone than this nonsense. Maybe I'm missing something here but I think Florentine has lost his mind.

    Robin was Jim's muse, his inspiration, his life. Without her he's a no-talent train wreck. Gone is the wine and caviar, back are the bad jokes and Upper Deckers. He's lost without her. ;)

    His rant on O&A about fantasy football was fucking classic. This is why I like them, they have comedians on and let them go off. Howard would have just sat there and done a rigid interview in the same style that he's been doing for years.
