His voice came over the radio the other night (I was driving and listening to BBC World Service) and I immediately switched stations.  I never could stand his voice, now I can't stand to hear it for even a second.
I really don't appreciate your sarcastic, anti-comedy tone, Bro!

BBC World Service is some quality radio. Keillor, on the other hand...not so much.

Agreed.  I don't have this feeling often, but I really do want to strike him to stop that sound coming out of his mouth.  That horrible, windy sound.

My parents were listening to him back in the 70s... Believe me, I know how prolonged exposure to Keillor can age a man.

That's just the sound of a Lake Wobegone zephyr. Not sure why it doesn't soothe you.

It certainly has aged HIM.

That's some outfit.


You all just shut your pie holes. A man who wears denim pedal pushers with no socks has to have nuts of steel.

Remember how he couldn't stop his leg?

He should just walk around naked. I hear that's really comfortable.

As soon as I read that I had an aural hallucination: Tom's "d'uggh" sound of puritanical disgust.
