    I don’t think so. It’s so low effort, and seems like really low-level sports humour.

    I like a lot of what the current show offers, but why do they entertain stupid shit like this? Because it BARELY caught on even through ESPN, etc.

    Jon Hein can be funny, but this catchphrase has consistently come across as a real stretch for humour.

    Thoughts?

    I thought it was funny when they said it on "Big Mouth".

    I stopped listening before this reference so I don't really get it or even know what it's supposed to mean.

    Yes, seeing me repeat it with upper torso movements when I'm driving.

    Hein has such a huge personality that this catch phrase is beneath him

    Absolutely not funny in any way.

    Jason tried so hard to make it a "thing", like Ba Ba Booey. Fuck him.

    I'm glad it died a slow death.

    Hein wasn't responsible for it, it was Jason Kaplan who started doing it. Jason is more funny when being goofed on, but it was actually kinda funny because the whole idea is that Jon is so milquetoast and boring that it's sarcastic. It's a good inter-office goofing on idea, but it got milked and played out sooooo much like every other bit after like....2010? I dunno.

    So, to answer your question, yes, it was kind of funny initially:

    I love Jason because he's an annoying asshole. He made this catchphrase to get under Jon's skin...and it does.

    Hein is a know-it-all smoldering cauldron of anger (which he tries to hide) and anything to upset him makes me happy.

    HIT EM WITH THE HEEEEIIIIINNNNNNN!

    There is nothing funny about the Sirius years after after Artie left and ETM croaked. Contrived catch phrases are gay. Especially when the underlying show evolved into a starfucking, twinkfest with cock breath.

    I don't know if its funny but it makes fun of John Hein, so I like it. The fact that its Jason's creation seems to really get under Hein's skin, which I do find funny.

    So yeah, I guess I do think HEWTH is funny.
