Dear AST-ers. I, like many of you, listen to a ton of comedy podcasts. Am I crazy or does every 1.5 episodes include a digression wherein the hosts compare themselves and the situation they are in to a Morning Zoo crew? Someone puts on a nasal Pat O'Brien voice and says something about "traffic and weather together" or intones a wacky sound effect of some kind.
Now I am by no means targeting any one show - for to do that would be unfair as so many shows are guilty of falling into this joke trap. I think I've heard this tired gag on no less than 4 new shows in the last 24 hours.
No, my call is to us, the listeners, to post IN THIS VERY THREAD, imploring podcast hosts to give the Morning Zoo reference a breather. Many, if not most of these hosts don't listen to any other shows, let alone as many shows as the podcast connoisseurs who post here... Which means that these hosts don't know how tired this gag has become, how a previously solid bit of jokery now invokes pangs of disgust, how a vocal tone and oddball sidekick name might make one want to tear the headphones out of ones ears and throw them at the nearest, cutest thing.
History may prove me wrong, but friends now is the time to carve our names into the hallowed halls of humour... no more shall we stand for 'podcast crew as morning zoo' buffoonery!
