Ben and Skin Continue to Make Me Giggle Hard

In our current issue, we named Quick columnists Ben and Skin the Best in Big D. They reference that honor in their current column. And they ask an important question: Has Shark Week jumped the shark? Which prompts Ben to note:

It’s created a cliché wormhole, and now the entire planet is in jeopardy unless
Michael J. Fox can avoid hooking up with his teenage mom.

    Giggling “hard” does not make it any more manly.

  2. c says:

    The adjective is “clichéd.”

  3. Zac Crain says:

    Good to know for when someone uses it that way.

  4. HCL says:

    Cool, cool, alright.

  5. There was a best columnist category?

  6. matt says:

    Thank God they are known for this because when they sub in for the Hardline I imagine ratings are just this side of test pattern.

  7. Gravypan says:

    While I admire their basketball knowledge, I have to confess that I’ve never gotten their brand of humor.

    And like Matt suggests, a test pattern could fill in for the Hardline instead of Ben and Skin and it would probably garner better ratings.

    the test pattern could fill in for hardline and I’d never know the difference..zzzzz

    Gordon keith and norm are the only 2 that I can even tolerate listening to.

  9. Steve Blow says:

    There was a “best columnist” award? I demand a recount!

  10. George DeJohn says:

    They should stick to printed word and refrain from speaking and transmitting the sounds to a mass audience. Their column is good, but their show sucks.

    Mr. Blow:

    Consistent with your lazy approach to your columns, you couldn’t be bothered to read just four posts above yours. Marty beat you to the joke. And was funnier (for reasons you’ll never understand).

  12. Test Pattern says:

    Catch me weekdays, 3-7pm on KTCK, The Ticket.

    Thanks for the info George DeJohn. Good thing I’ve never listened to the show and I think they are not funny in the least. Their column is terrible imho. It’s almost as bad as the rubbish the Leah chick or Formby writes.
    Gordon Keith is where its at. I was never a big fan of his but the dude is funny-sometimes.
