    I was thinking today about a bit that used to make me smile all the time. Every time this happened, I laughed. If it happened today, though, I might just be sad about how far the show has declined and how, oddly enough, I'd think that it would be ironically fitting.

    The bit was when Howard would pick up a call of someone that had waited on line so long that they fell asleep. Back then it was funny, now, it's just a sad reminder of the status quo...

    Um, he still pulls that all the time; they're practically demanding that listeners do it. On one of the last shows I listened to before dropping out this month, he accused a snorer of being fake, but he still let it drone on.

    Like the phony phone calls and everything else, it's already driven well into the ground....

    The parent impressions are another obvious one, but really, ALL the bits are trodden to death.

    Hollyweird Squares, if you could trust them to put any effort into it. Which you can't.

    When was the last time there was any bit, game or guest that took any planning, meetings or prep? The Tiger Woods Pagent?
