    I'm actually starting to like Benjy. :facepalm:

    Ralph, Fred and Gary have their tongues so far up Howard's ass that they hold grudges with those who hurt poor Howie's feeling. Yet Benjy's standing alone and being real; even telling Howard that he acting like a spoiled baby (not in those words, of course).

    I still hate his shtick and any bits involving Elisa, but it seems that Benjy's gone rogue ever since Howard started goofing on his sham relationship. Good for him! I hope he keeps standing his ground and doesn't end up buckling like all the rest.

    I honestly feel that Benjy's girlfriend drama and the Benjy antics are to mock Howard. I heard a bit of the show this morning where Benjy was calling Howard on some of his bullshit (I think regarding Apatow), and I was so happy. Benjy is definitely pissed at the "new" Howard but he has to be subtle about it or Howard will figure it out. It really seems like everyone on the show is afraid of the "wrath" of Stern. Even Jay Thomas won't say anything against Howard or allow callers to say anything critical.

    He is the most interesting aspect of the show, which is pathetic when you think about it :facepalm:

    This is most definitely the case...and the reaction the staff gives Benjy for this mocking?? ....they call him an asshole....when we all know who the true asswipe is...

    I've seen others say that Benjy and Elisa are mocking Howard and Yoko as well. I want to believe that...I want to believe that so bad, but I just don't know. Altho', the whole wig thing does seem way too random to not be a hidden jab at Howard.

    Nah, it was the Benjilisa "WE LOVE ANIMALS" web site that sealed the deal for me. Was that ever addressed on the show?

    You got that right, it's really scraping the bottom of the barrel to be rooting for Benjy, but it's about all we have. Especially when you have "legal scholar" Robert A. Booey pontificating on TWUS.

    The "Schtick" you are referring to is not Benjy's...it is Howard's. It has always been Howard's Vortex. Go back to the Wedding Dinner....It was Howard that chose to make it a big deal about Benjy (independently) thinking for himself and chosing a dish that was offered. It was Howard that poked relentlessly at Benjy's relationship, constantly trying to get Benj to admitt that he had sex with her. The difference between Benjy and everyone else is that he thinks independenly and as it may sometime appear that he is stalling to answer, it is he that actually thinks before he speaks. He is not a sheep..He is a billygoat.

    My problem with Benjy is that he confuses being absurd with being funny. They aren't always the same thing.

    I dunno, Benjy sure was towing the company line when it came to Apatow yesterday...

    And remember Benjy is the fucking guy who writes all this terrible crap these days.

    I still can't stand him.

    I'm talking more about shit like needing to be with Elisa when she does the Miss Howard TV and not being able to explain why. That type of shit...the awkward, unfunny shit that goes nowhere. I have never had an issue with Benjy doing his own thing to Howard's dismay...and I always found it to be awful radio when Howard tries to make a bit out of him being "difficult."

    Serious question to you; How does this explain Benjy on the Wrap Up Show?

    Benjy isn't at all funny, but I like that what he does is apparently jabbing at Howard. Benjy has the balls to be funny as hell. The problem is, he's not good at delivering funny. Benjy needs to be a puppet to someone who knows funny.
