A word about Laughing Guy.
I'm not pleased with the sound level either. It's always bothered me but no one ever said anything till now, so I never got off my ass to fix it. So, for the time being, Laughing Guy is on hiatus until he's retooled. He will not return until he can learn to modulate his laughter.
(A certain jackass I know suggested that I should jack the volume even higher on his return, but that ain't my style)
The blown come-back after the first commercial break was the fault of my cable company which let the local spot run long, not me.
