Fred Willard yanked off by PBS

Fred Willard will, in fact, not get off that easily: In addition to being subjected to the humiliation of arrest and endless masturbation jokes like that one and the one in the headline, Willard has now lost his job as the narrator of PBS' Market Warriors, a show in which professional antiques pickers compete to see who can get the best bargains. Though PBS offered no other comment on Willard's firing, aside from the fact that it was "unfortunate," it is assumed that the network had reservations about Willard being the voice of a series about polishing up old pieces of wood. Heeeeeeeey-oh, we got a fabulous sheeeeoooow, with pratfalls and splat-falls and maybe even catcalls, we're gonna have a real hot time on the old town toniiiight, [tap dance], etc.
