    I was thinking of how awesome The Opie & Anthony Show is. Its comedy, its humor, its info, its conversations, its stories, its its guests, its predictions, its soap opera, its attitude, its production, its social climate, its truthfulness, its staff and its hosts.

    It's enlightening when the comics rip each other apart. They're on another level. I used to aspire to be on that level, until it started giving me douchechills. I'm not, so I just enjoy the comics exploiting each other's misery and misfortune.

    Why do I like O&A....Because there's zero competition to what they do and its great. Radio sucks a fat one.

    I'll tell you one thing, while I like Op and I think Ant's pretty funny, if

    a) there's any truth to this "sirius won't put the comics on" rumor, and
    b) they somehow lost Jimmy,

    I'd have zero reason to bother anymore.

    Twitter discussions, Anthonys political rants and A-list celebrities like Paris Hilton. Also punish the listener bits rule!

    Hands down it's the big name celebrities who never fail to provide engaging and funny interviews!

    Also - It's not directly a part of the live show, so not sure if it counts - but my favorite part is the hilarious tweets and YouTube videos Opie puts up - puts me in a great mood and lets me get through the day!

    serious] Patrice ONeil, when op and ant roll with a news story (eg boston bomb scare), when Jimmy hits a homerun (eg hudson river pilot book) and great characters like Bobo and Twitchels.

    Tough question, oldmanSOS ...

    I've always preferred talk radio, ever since the first time I grazed the AM dial back in the days when the clear channel stations ruled. The shows that kept my attention were the ones that made me laugh - kudos to Amber for that simple and succinct assessment - and the ones that made me think.

    In the last bunch of years those shows were Howard (local on DC's WWDC), Greaseman (also local on DC101), Imus (syndicated on FM and simulcast on MSNBC), and the boys (early XM). The bit that captured my attention was Pat from Moonachie's first eggnog challenge victory. In those first several months of listening I realized that I had never heard anything like what was coming out of the speakers during my morning drive. Hilarious and thought-provoking ... and even when they were bad, what I heard was better than anything from the past.

    Fuck, being all serious and shit isn't much fun. Feels like I'm writing an obit. :(

    Wasn't that ripped off from Jackass? So a Jackass rip off won you over?

    So fucking what if it was?

    Stop being such a negative creep and enjoy your time on this earth. When you're ready to buy the farm let me know. I'd fucking love to write your obit, so hurry it up.

    In your world, not mine. I made it perfectly clear what attracted me, and you're choosing to cherry-pick one bit to debunk the whole notion. Go suck bobo's mangled dick, you fucking waste of protoplasm.
