    It was so bad, but I enjoyed making fun of it. Have they killed this bit, or have I just not been listening closely enough?

    Yeah, I've definitely still noticed the occasional benji/shuli joke crowbarred in, but the 20 minute bomb after bomb seems to have stopped.

    It is still there. Jokes are just spread out and they are not as obvious.
    Howard will broach a topic so he can tell his shit joke.
    Gunther S Blobbin will babble unaware of the joke heading down 5th avenue in a cab. By the time the punchline is delivered the possibility of a laugh is 0.0 ....:jj:

    Yeah definitely still there. I noticed him working towards a joke when talking about Joe Walsh. He had to cut out Robin going off on a tangent.

    The best is when the joke bombs, but then Robin will chime in with either a follow-up question or ask what paper Howard read the story in. Of course, Howard has no clue about the subject or where the story came from so he's forced to scramble. Incredible :facepalm:

    Someone should probably alert Robin when he's doing it so she doesn't mess him up. :shit:

    Yeah, she steps all over the middle of the jokes too, and makes Wig's already awkward delivery even more awkward.

    Even worse, it started 1/2 way through the show. Out of nowhere, he would start doing a monologue where he would comment on a popular story in the news, and then add a horrible benji/shuli punchline to it. He would do about 6 or 7 of these bombs in a row. I guess he still does them, but sprinkles these turds throughout the whole show, so it is not as bad now. Someone here had done a bunch of funny photoshops of the actual monologue jokes that he did.

    Even better is when he uses a monologue joke from a week or two ago about a story that has completely evolved. The cheap fucker uses jokes way past the expiration date.....:jj:
    He is our Wiggy Youngman!


    Howard's fake Alzheimers=Howard asking Robin about the race of the people involved in the Cleveland story!

    Robin's real Alzheimers= Robin knew an evil white girl was the victim but thought the perp was black. That is why she skipped the details of the story and went right to the amazing Charles Ramsey.

    Here are a few, but I think there were a bunch of others that I can't find now. And yes, these are real.

    Ok, I laughed at these, but only because of the Ed McMahon laughing pic. Also, reading them in Carson's voice helped out a lot.

    But this shit is AWFUL. AWFUL AWFUL AWFUL.
