F&M appear to be calcifying into Big Show-esque putrefaction. They no longer attempt to disguise their contempt for their listeners; in fact that contempt (the constant recourse to the townie accent, the hanging up on callers and "pushing away from the table", etc) is now part of their act. They treat the Neely segment with the same enthusiasm accorded to reading ad copy for window restorations --i.e., as a scheduled but unwelcome interruption from endless Welker talk. They find themselves and each other to be the most fascinating and amusing personalities on Earth, and we're supposed to just listen and revel in their comic genius.

I am far from a Felger-hater, by the way. There's lots I like about him, and even Mazz. But they should both realize that many of us can only find their douchery endearing if it's leavened with some humility and a semblance of regard for their audience. Without that, it becomes nauseating and stale.
