I used to love the Chumpline, until I discovered the Big Show's (WEEI) Whiner Line. I don't know who came up with the concept first, but the WL beats the CL like a rented mule.
Chumpline was first. It was also there before the DumpLine
on Dennis and Callahan (not sure if they still do that).
I thought HC may have been inspired by Radio Graffiti
from Alan Colmes’ old show (though RG was/is live; I think
Hannity copies that, with “Hannity’s Insanity”) but Chumpline
is voice mail messages...so maybe not.
Howie allegedly back on today and if so we’ll see how far
he’s allowed to go in discussing this.
heh the same thing happened to me, the whiner line is pretty damn clever. alot more references.
