Two Minutes Hate – Bernie and Marital Counseling

In this installment of Two Minutes Hate I try to flush out the Bernie Maxsmith character a bit more, by subtly intimating domestic troubles with his wife Judy, as well as slipping in a joke about impotence.

While I thought it was pretty funny to put the Bernie character through marital counseling, it’s important for me to remember that the segment is ultimately about the hosts reacting to their hate mail, and so Bernie can’t be too expansive. That said, I intend to have more of a back story for him in my head in case the hosts ever ask him any personal questions.

    You almost had them with that “two c’s” comment. The goal here is for them to get them to react to the things you say, right?
