    Why hasn't anyone told Fred that his impression of Benjy is horrible, sounds nothing like Benjy and isn't funny?

    Fred has been using that annoying hi-pitched pipsqueak impression for years.

    I think Benjy is a bloated slob, and an unfunny hack, but Fred's voicing of him is just boring and dumb. Personally, I think Howard doesn't want to deal with Fred's mood swings, so he lets it go.

    I don't know that you're going to be getting a lot of support on this one, Capt. Frank. Fred's impression may not be the best from a technical standpoint, but being as its only purpose is to mock, belittle and utterly humiliate Benji - a goal it accomplishes with frequent regularity - I remain one of its biggest fans.

    Why hasn't anyone told Fred that playing the crow sound effect when Mary Ann from Brooklyn calls stopped being funny 20 years ago?

    Freds impressions of Jason and Sal are also horrible and sound nothing like them.

    Howard has better impressions than the staff and he's not even a voice guy

    That's what makes them funny. It's an over exaggeration. I find his impressions of Benjy hilarious.

    His Jason impression makes me laugh sometimes because he whines like a twat. I don't know what his Sal impression sounds like.

    His Richard is ok too.

    Someone should also let him know his song paradies suck (see: the sounds of kinneson or backside boys).

    Why hasn't anyone told Fred that his nephew he never sees is now on Facebook. He made an appearance back when Jackie was still on the show. Justin Nukis is his name. He looks a lot like Uncle Fred!

    Fred is tough to figure out for me. I seem to switch day to day between hating his guts and admiring him. I am afraid that the admiration however, comes from remembering a distant past when he would challenge Wiggy, attempt to humiliate him, call him out, and prove him wrong. The fact is however that, that was long ago and it was far away. I think I'm of the opinion now and have been for some time that Fred is truly just another sycophant. Look how he backed Howard up blindly during the personal weatherman saga, and if you listen to hours of reruns like I have, you'll hear his CONSTANT non-stop ass kissing of Beef. I hate to say it but the Fred I used to know and love died some time ago, I don't believe there is anything left to admire now, including his cockamamie impressions. [​IMG]

    It's not funny, but it is appropriate because at least it's the sign that she'll be cut off soon.
