Wait Wait laughs Wed, Oct 20, 2010
I've never heard a more annoying series of human laughs than on NPR's Wait Wait Don't Tell Me.  Regular panelist Charlie Pierce sounds like one of those Muppets that sits in the balcony and heckles everything and everyone, Kyrie O'Connor sounds like she barely has the ability to get through a few seconds of laughter, and Amy Dickinson sounds like a chipmunk.  I'm not here to tell anybody how they should or shouldn't laugh, but seeing as how this is radio and the only physical sense I'm using while listening is my sense of hearing, it's hard for me to ignore things that are un-ignorable.  The least they could do is turn down the volume on the mics for panelists whose laughter makes my skin crawl. #entertainment
