    I've been listening to Howard since '91ish. And until I started coming here I never noticed the annoying lisp (is it a lisp?) of his. Besht. Senshh. Etc. I hear it SO often now. Has it always been so obvious or is it getting worse?

    There you go. Another A+ thread. Thank you. Fuck yourself. Peace and love peace and Love.

    The poor effort and quality of the HSS has made itself unlistenable - this site is primarily ex-fans. So we're not haters of all things Stern, just of all things Stern post-The-Artie era, or maybe it's the post-Beth-marriage era. Not sure.

    Yeah, the lishp became infinitely more pronounced when he got the horrible fake toofs - like the ones he's ragged on Gary about for years - so that he could be more attractive to the hockey moms and 12 year old girls who comprise his new Gong Show prime demographic.

    Reddit pretty much did the same thing for me with O&J. After Ant was fired, I tried to hang in there, but they zeroed in on every annoying habit /flaw of Opie.

    Now I only listen if there is a guest I'm interested in.

    I thought so. Also heard a new york accent slip out a few times lately.

    Those jackals on o&a reddit are very intense with their hatred of all things O&A. They make us here seem like kind, caring, reasonable peeps.

    I know, I read there from time to time. I think that's ridiculous. Those (SJW ooof I hate that term ha) people are insane. I know reddit doesn't like Opie, but he's Definitely the lesser of the two evils.

    Yes and no.. I think a lot of us were mislead a few years into the Artie transition cuz thanks to him the show maintained a reasonable "funny quotient," the emphasis shifting from the jokes, shtick, gags etc that Jackie finger-cotted into Howard's mouth, to Artie's free range humor.

    Once Artie started his descent, it became apparent that the funny had left the room and that Howard was incapable of filling the void. At that point, in retrospect, it became easy to see that THSS began its death cycle when Jackie walked (also easy to discern that Fred was no comedy writer - let alone the head writer- a title he always begrudged Jackie).

    Idk if you can say that about Fred. He may be a very goid writer....but if Howard doesnt have the same senshh of humor anymore, maybe he couldn't write the evolved comedy Howard now uses that well. Make senshh to you? Because I wrote it, and am still unsure.
