Having listened to the Show for 20 years, I know that Fred is a very smart guy. In real life, squeaky wheels don't get oiled, they get fired. So it makes sense that he probably just keeps his mouth shut to keep the paycheck coming. But is he complicit with HS or does he secretly know how ridiculous the show is becoming with Howard trying to act like he is 40 because of his newfound interest in being accepted by the public at large and all the other stuff? Any thoughts about Fred's motives would be appreciated.
