Howard tried to untangle himself from the "Benjy Vortex" as the show buzzed to life on Wednesday, explaining to Robin that he was parrying political questions from Benjy.
Instead of playing into Benjy's schtick, Howard noted that he was fascinated by how the balding staffer had positioned his headphones in the perfect way as if to make it look like he actually had a hairline."It's a headphone toupee," Fred added as a matter of fact.
He said that he doesn't need to know what the Roman Numerals are and things like that. When he got Washington wrong, he thought California was right. Sal said he never saw Football as a gridiron either.
Howard, 61, who was now in his stride, revealed he was ‘super attracted’ to Taylor and said if he had been friends with Jake when they were dating, he would have told him she was worth staying with long term.
Big love: Jake was asked if he had ever been in love - he said twice.
They'll find out next week how smart everyone is with the IQ test results. He said he opened an account with Sal and thought about what he was doing and decided not to do it. am Howard had Steve Langford come in with his news preview.
Howard also played a bizarre Benjy clip for his listeners first thing in the morning.Apparently, like Jeff the Drunk, Benjy has been streaming live on Periscope in an attempt to gain a devoted following and in a recent outing almost got physically attacked. Howard and Robin simply couldn't figure out what was funny about the bit — especially after hearing that Benjy reported the guy as a potentially dangerous individual to police after the fact."Every good comedy bit needs the police intervening," Howard joked."I had no idea that he was up to that," a baffled Robin added.
