Who’s Your Daddy?

Howard and ever-present dickie

Howard and ever-present dickie

The Big Bang Theory story arc has several under lying questions: Will Penny and Leonard marry? Will Raj ever find a girl to love him, aside from his Yorkie, Cinnamon? Will Sheldon and Amy ever consummate their relationship?

A foundational question is, who is Howard Wolowitz’s father?

I think my daughter came up with the answer:

Cousin Eddie of National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. They even dress alike.



Consider and discuss.

    Susan, I just figured out a couple of days ago that I have to press the little comment bubble to the right of the title at the top of the post to reply. I’m a little slow, I guess.

    Anyway, I think Penny and Leonard will marry, and Sheldon and Amy will consummate their relationship. Both events promise to be hilarious.

    Poor Raj. I’m afraid he’s ready to give up on girls altogether and embrace his inner feminine self. The comic book store guy seems to be looking better to him all the time.

    Howard’s dad might be Walter Mitty.

      Nope, Howard’s dad is Eddie. They both have that whiff of skeez, and leave me with the desire to move away.

        Wow. Just, wow.

        I’ve worked with skeez guys like Cousin Eddie. I’ve served food to guys like Cousin Eddie too:

        Me: “How do you take your coffee, sir?”

        Eddie: “Like you, honey.” (wink-wink) “Blonde and sweet.”

        Me: *shudder*

        But what will poor Howard do when his abundant hairline begins to recede? Ha, he’ll become even skeezier.

          While Chuck Lorre–creator of TBBT–marches on with stereotypical guy-centered doofusness, I do see glimmers of hope for Howard. Last season’s show in which each of the group tells Howard what an unread letter from his father said. The story overall, and the individual stories, were tight, touching, and to-the-point. The actor, Simon Helberg, was great as a confused man trying to face the truth of his life without a father, and holding out hope that there was a reason for his suffering.

          Helberg is also great a giving me the willies.



Why yes, we DO want a piece of your mind. ;-)
