I've heard Noory in the past sound like he's had to bite his lip
with a couple of guests, you can hear the frustration in the man
from time to time. Perhaps he has had enough of the BS-factor
and enough of fools making the rest of us look like fools with
their utter garbage.

Now the question is: Is this the beginning or the end of getting
rid of the rubes? Hopefully, this isn't the end.....
