    Listening back to Master tape theater this week I remembered how on the ball Fred was with sound effects. What the fuck happened? The times I force my self to listen to this fucking garbage these days because i'm still trying to defeat my old school addiction... There are no sound effects. What happened to this major contribution of humor to the show. IT IS FUCKING NONEXISTENT!!!!

    Secondly, Fred never used to laugh at anything on the show WHEN IT WAS FUNNY!!! Now he is cracking up at shit that should be getting crickets. Has he always had a p.c./awful sense of humor?? It is embarrassing!!! Does Fred have a spine?

    He is still really good at what he does. Makes me laugh at the sounds he comes up with and how quick he is.

    It is hard to have sound effects when content is non existent.

    I don't listen everyday can you give me an example? Maybe i'm missing something. Usually Robin or the wig say something that makes me want to stab my ears out and it is followed by a forced Fred cackle.

    Agree he really was money back in the day. You could tell he put the work in because his timing and question were just perfect. Very big part of the lol's back then

    It's difficult to come up with one right now off the top of my head. When it happens I just think to myself he's a genius.

    In a recent Win Fred's Money episode Fred lost to some trivia expert/celebrity named "The Beast" by only seconds. It was pretty impressive.

    If I had to choose between Fred, Robin and Benjy staying on the show, I would go with Fred.

    None of them have the fire in their belly that made them who they were.. Fred is coasting.. like the rest of the staff.

    I miss the old Fred, but when the boss is mailing it in everyday, it's hard to keep the motivation strong. I hope that he & Princess Norris secretly laugh at Wiggy's and Beff's ongoing fuckery.

    What was the payoff if he won? In the past you had to have a girl with you willing to get naked. What the fuck was the point? Impressive? Are you a new listener?

    Explain? At least blobbin gives us an infinite amount of material to make fun of.

    Fred does a new thing now. Whenever a caller calls Howard out on Beth or anything derogatory toward Howard, you can hear Fred say in the background "Hmmm?" Like he has no fucking idea what the person is talking about. He's a true kiss ass, but I guess he has to lick Howard's ballsack since Howard isn't buying him any cars.

    Fred has become a big disappointment.
