|Friday||Latest Master Tape Theatre|
Howard started the show asking Robin how her weekend was. Robin said it was good. She saw her own skeleton in a machine called a Dexascan. Howard thought she meant that she lost so much weigh she could see her own skeleton. Robin said she thought she looked pretty good on the inside. She said her skeleton is gorgeous.
Howard asked Robin why she would do something like that. Robin said she's into preservation an upkeep and this keeps track of your bone density. Howard said he thought that she didn't believe in modern medicine. Robin said she does but not in filling yourself with chemicals all the time.
Howard said he saw Robin on Wendy Williams and both of them were laughing a lot. He had a montage of audio clips of the two of them laughing and at things he wasn't even clear on. Howard played the clips and Robin was laughing over Wendy while she was talking to her and it was hard to hear what the question or conversation was even about.
Howard said Robin has so much energy. He said he can't laugh that much. Robin said maybe things aren't that funny to him. Howard said it is infectious. He asked if she's nervous or is it really that funny. Robin said it may have just been hitting her in the right mood. Howard said he's never had that kind of moment. Robin said she's not laughing right now because Howard isn't happy go lucky. Howard said she won't get that on this show.
Howard said he heard Robin put out a pitch for her own show on Wendy's show. Robin said she was just asked if there was anything she wanted to do in her life that she hadn't done so far. Howard said maybe some day she will have her own show. Robin said maybe she will. Howard said Robin could do both shows. Robin said she knows she could do that.
Howard played more of the audio and Robin was laughing more at Wendy's questions. Wendy asked Robin what she wanted to do some day and Robin did talk about how she would like her own show some day. Howard said she failed to compare her breast size to Wendy. Robin said they just never got around to that. Howard said she should have given them a feel.
Howard played more audio and asked if Wendy could beat Robin up. Robin said she wouldn't stand a chance. Wendy could take her down with one blow. Howard said he's pretty sure she could take him down too.
Howard played another clip where Wendy played Robin out with a song. He said he had some other clips where Robin was talking about how she's the voice of reason on his show. In that clip Robin and Wendy were laughing at each other talking about that. Robin has been with Howard for 29 years now and Robin couldn't believe it so she laughed. Wendy was the one who talked about Robin being the voice of reason on the show.
Howard said there were a lot of accolades going around in that show. He said it was an A+ appearance. Howard said he saw some of the other things she was talking about. He said she sounded very worldly on the show. Howard talked about some of those things he heard about. Howard said she talked about how she wasn't able to walk very well back around 9/11 so she was afraid that she wouldn't have made it down if she had to take the steps in the World Trade Center. Robin said she was in bad shape back then and she was falling down all the time.
Robin said Howard helped her stand up one time when she fell over in the parking garage. She said she was just a blob that could barely move. Robin said every day she was leaving work on the verge of tears and Howard didn't even know that. Howard said he definitely didn't know that. '
Howard played a clip where Robin talked about losing 65 pounds. Howard said Robin is going to have to go through this story again when she has lunch with Rosie. Robin said she may not have to go through the whole thing. She said that Rosie just wants to know what she does to lose the weight.
Howard played more of the clip and Robin was telling Wendy that all of her weight loss was from her diet. Howard said he's so fuckin' proud of her. He said he sat at his computer and watched Robin. He said Robin didn't tell him much about the appearance. He said she just told him it went well and Wendy was really nice.
Howard said he was looking at the audience and saw there were a few fatsos in there. He wondered if any of them asked Robin about her diet. Robin said she was out of there after the interview so she didn't hear from anyone.
Howard said Robin told Larry King that she fell over at his engagement party. Robin said that's true. She said she was just standing there and she fell. She said Howard wasn't there at the time. Howard said you'd think that someone would have told him that story. Robin said she didn't want to take all of the attention during the party.
Howard played more of the audio and Wendy cut Robin off in the middle of a sentence. Robin said she wasn't even sure what she was going to say there.
Howard said Sal was pretty funny. He said that Sal had said something that got them going. It was about Gary having to fight over the chicken parts when they have dinner. Howard said it sounds horrible for Gary at home. Gary said it's fine. Gary said he doesn't have to do chores like Howard thinks. He said he takes the kids to baseball practice and things like that.
Gary said he coaches baseball so Sal asked how he could be a coach after throwing that ball the way he did. Gary said he'll go up against Sal any day. Gary told Howard he had to go pick his son up from baseball practice and he got home at 12:45 and grabbed some lunch. Then he had to take his other son to another game across town.
Howard said it sounds like Gary has an awful life. Gary said that everyone there has this kin of stuff going on. Howard said that the wife usually does this kind of stuff so the husband can rest at home. Gary said they're both doing everything. Howard asked if they can car pool. Gary said you can't do that when you're an umpire. He said he does have a car pool thing going with another kid though.
Howard said one of Gary's games got rained out so he had other things to do. Gary said he has a lot of charity requests and he has to do that stuff. Howard said he has a list that he gives to and he tells everyone else no. Gary said he has to respond to them though. Gary said he wrote a check to Robin's thing and some other charities. He said that there are a lot of friends who have charity stuff going on.
Howard read the transcript of what they wrote on Saturday night. They were writing all of the Baba Booey-like names. They were goofing on Gary and throwing those names in there. Richie Wilson had a new one ''SaSa Solitaire'' and Howard had the new ''ChaCha Chicken'' and some other stuff. Howard was goofing on Gary about his chicken pieces and Sal would throw out lines about Gary and goof on him about a bunch of things. Howard said they were goofing on Gary's ''take me back'' tape and his ''My professional life is at a 'nooine'' thing. Howard read some of the stuff Sal was saying about his own home life.
Gary said they had a major discussion on Superfan Roundtable about how Robin made 9/11 all about herself. Robin said that's not what she was doing. She was trying to put the whole thing into context when she did that. Sal said she can't believe how Robin made going down a flight of steps into losing weight. Howard said that they're basically animals and our instincts are to catch food. He said that it's a survival thing. Robin said it's a survival mechanism.
Sal said you'd think that the first day you can't see your vagina would be the day you'd want to lose weight. Robin said she had been trying to lose weight and this thing was the thing that really got her motivated.
Sal was arguing with Robin and Howard said they were stuck in his vortex and kicked him out of the studio. Howard said Sal thinks that he had a bonding experience with him so that's why he thinks he can stay in the studio and talk to Robin like that. He said he's gotten carried away with himself.
Howard said he got to the Washington DC part of the movie but he turned it off. He said Beth was into it though. He said he didn't feel comfortable watching it with her. He said it felt too weird to him. Beth said it wasn't weird for her.
Howard said he should have watched it on his own. Robin said she hasn't seen it since his divorce. Howard said she saw bits and pieces of it but not the whole thing.
Howard said he kept thinking Beth thought he looked gross. He said he looked really bad in the scenes from the past. Howard said the whole Fartman thing didn't look good either. Howard said he had a bad time watching it with her. He said seeing half of it was more than enough for him.
Howard said he got worked up about seeing it again when someone wrote to him telling him it holds up really good after all these years. He said he didn't need to see it though. Howard said he didn't even get to the Pig Virus stuff.
Howard said Gary looked so young in the movie. He said it was really weird. He said even Fred looked a lot younger. Howard said he still holds up himself though. Robin said she actually looks better now. Howard said she does. He said she looked great in the movie though.
Howard talked about how they changed that movie script around a lot. He said the people at Rysher got upset with him and said they were going to get Jeff Goldblum to play him because he was being such a pain in the ass. He said he told them that no one would go see it if they did that. Howard said they had never been heard of before that and he figured that they would have made a mistake if they hadn't let him change the script. He wasn't pleased with the script so he had them make a lot of changes.
Howard said watching the movie was a big mistake. The caller said it really holds up after all these years though. Howard thanked him for that. Howard said Robin should have told him not to watch it with Beth. Robin is supposed to be the voice of reason.
Another caller said they had boxing on HBO on Saturday night. He said this guy got his ass kicked and at the end the guy said that he had ''Baba Booey'd his chances'' when he lost. He said the guy's name was Areola too so it was kind of funny. Howard asked JD if he had that. JD said he had a link to it but it was a bad recording. He said he's going to record it tonight to get it for tomorrow. The caller said it was pretty funny because the guy got his ass kicked and his face was all swollen up.
Bobo called in and asked Howard who the hottest wife would be out of the staff there. Howard said he doesn't know. He said that's a touchy subject. He said saying who has the best body is tough. Howard said Mary Dell'Abate is pretty hot. He said he didn't want to say because they're doing the bikini contest today. He was just kidding.
Howard wasn't even sure what Will's wife looked like. He said he knows a lot of the wives but not her. He said he can't evaluate the wives like that. He said they're all lovely. Howard said he's not sure if they're all happy with their wives though. He said that some are happy and some aren't.
Howard said Beth changed the food and the dog is doing much better since they changed. Howard said Beth is very proud of the book. He said they're going to put her on some shows and she'll be out doing a tour. Howard is going on the trip with Beth out to California. He said he hasn't flown out there since 9/11. He has traveled some since then but not much.
Howard said he did go out to San Francisco to visit his daughter once. He said he is a mess on the flight though. He said he hates flying. He said he wishes he could be like Robin and just fly everywhere.
Robin said she was flying this weekend and she was in the co-pilot's seat. She was going to Martha's Vineyard and she had to take a small plane there.
Howard told Robin about Beth taking a small plane over in Greece and the pilot asked her if she wanted to sit on his lap while he showed her how to fly. He put her in his lap to show her how to land. Howard said he can't imagine that going on in an airplane. He asked Beth how she could do that. He said she said that he asked her to fly the plane so she did it.
Howard took a call from Mariann from Brooklyn who said she has pre-ordered Beth's book already. Howard said Beth has this whole itinerary for this book promotion. He said he doesn't want to go to California but Beth asked him to do it so he's going to do it. She's doing Kimmel out there. He said she's going to do Letterman before they go. Beth wanted him to sit in the green room there but he's not going to do that. He knows they're going to put him on camera there. He said he's going to feel compelled to do something funny there and he doesn't want that.
Howard said they have some stuff mapped out for Beth to do and it's good stuff. He said he could have done a bit for Letterman but he wants it to be about her and not about him. Howard said he's not sure what the dates are to do Letterman. Mariann asked him to keep them updated. Mariann said she wasn't filibustering today so she asked if he wanted to ask her anything. Howard said she did much better today but he hung up on her anyway.
Howard said Jimmy Kimmel is throwing a party for him out there and the guest list looks great. He said they have a lot of big names coming to the dinner. He said Jimmy has a lot of people coming. He said he hasn't turned down anyone from the list so far. He said it's going to be really big.
Howard said that they're kind of being greeted out there in L.A. He said he's obsessing about the party now though. He said they're talking about what time to have the party run and he's not sure what they're doing.
Howard said Beth has a lot of stuff going on out there. He said she's booked to do a bunch of shows. He thinks she's doing the Today Show and a bunch of morning shows out in L.A.
Howard said he was thinking that he could go to Letterman's green room and make out with various chicks there. He said maybe Dave will put him up in the secret room he has there. Howard said Chris Rock was talking about how all of the hot chicks are gone from the back stage area over there.
Howard said David Spade was on Letterman. He said he snuck into town again and didn't come by to say hello. Robin said she doesn't think he'll ever come in again. Howard said Spade was really funny talking about Tiger Woods. He said he wants to bring Little Lupe on with him on Letterman and tell him that she's his new intern. Howard said he could hand her over to Dave and have him return to the old days.
Howard said he could sit in the green room and read the script that the guy used in the extortion plot with Dave. Howard said he has a few things he could do like that. He said it's not about him though. It's all about Beth's book.
Robin said that Howard doesn't want to be like Marty Ingles. He used to show up to all of Shirley Jones' appearances since he's her husband.
Howard said they had this intern on the Intern Show last week and the kid is doing really well with his band. He said the kid put out an album and he's got some heat going. Howard asked Gary what his name was. Gary said it's Josh Walker. He interned for them back in 2003.
Howard said he didn't remember the kid but Gary told a story about how he had performed for him in the office one time. He said that Annemarie told him how good he was and he thought it was kind of weird to see him perform like that but Annemarie told him he had to see him perform. Gary said the guy was so nervous that he had to turn his back to him.
Howard said it would be very weird to sing to Gary. He said it would be easier to sing to Annemarie. Howard said that's a whole different thing.
Howard had some audio of this kid on the Intern Show. Gary said he's putting out his own CDs so it's not that he has his own record deal. Howard thought this one was the guy who had the record deal. Gary said there's another one who was on a few weeks ago who had a deal. Howard said he thought that this was the guy that they were talking about. Howard got upset with Gary over that because he thought this was the one with the deal. It turns out this is the guy who does real estate and sings on the side.
Howard went off on Gary for confusing him. He said that it didn't make any sense the way he did this. He asked if he's the nut there. He asked if any of the interns there now wanted to come in and sing for them. He blamed Gary for all of that. Gary said he doesn't get why it's his fault. Howard said he's wasting his time with this stuff. Gary said if he didn't want to waste time then he'd just move on.
Howard went off on Gary but then played some of the audio from the Intern Show where the kid was playing a cover of ''Cinnamon Girl.'' Howard said he thought this was the intern who had success in the business but it turns out it's just his hobby. Howard said maybe Fred will play next.
Howard played some more of the song but cut it off to play some Baba Booey song parodies instead. Howard couldn't believe that Gary did this to him. He asked him to look for some more intern music performances for him to play. Howard wondered if Gary could get him some video of the intern smashing the guitar over his head.
Howard jokingly said tonight on Howard TV they're going to feature the paintings of a former intern that now sells insurance. He said he's very successful now. Howard continued to goof on Gary for his screw up. He said he just gives up. His whole day was ruined.
Howard said Courtney Love is supposed to show up at 8:30 today. Robin said he's making it sound like he's not sure if she's going to actually show up. Howard said he's not sure she will. Gary agreed with Howard on that. They talked about how she has changed her name to Courtney Michelle now. Gary said that's who they're supposed to get today. He said he read the notes on her and she could be in the Wack Pack based on what's in her bio. Howard told Gary to book both Courtney Love and Courtney Michelle and maybe one will show up.
Howard gave Jeff Jarvis a plug for his web site BuzzMachine.com. Then he asked Schick about Lotus Notes. Schick said that they're very secure and there were some stories about how Google had a security breach recently.
Jarvis told Howard to switch to a Mac. Schick said that wouldn't be a problem. He said that their stuff all works on their stuff now. Jarvis said that Howard could use Google Docs instead of Lotus Notes.
Shick said that he's going to show Jarvis what he's doing with Lotus Notes and he's taking him back to IBM to give him a tour there too. Schick said that they have terabytes of stuff to store and they can't do it with Google. Jarvis said that Google would work with them on that if they asked.
Jarvis asked Howard about his web site and if his fans have access to all of their stuff that they have archived. Howard said they don't now but they have it accessible for the guys who work on their projects. He said that his situation is much more complicated than it sounds. They also talked about the iPhone and how Howard doesn't like it. Fred is using one now and it's working just fine for him.
Howard asked Jarvis what he's doing now. Jarvis said he's thinking about writing a book about living life in the public eye. He said he'd like to talk to Howard about that. Howard told him to ask him about it on the air because he won't talk to him off the air. Jarvis asked him about it then so Howard talked about what it's like being famous. Jarvis said he wants to know about what it's like to be as honest as he is on the air. Howard said he has some regrets about doing things the way he has. He said it's insane to bring cameras into your house though. He said he could never do that like other people have.
Jarvis asked Howard about his interviewing style and how he can get people to reveal stuff on his show like others can't Howard said he thinks that people should talk about that kind of stuff if they're comfortable doing it. Howard said he is proud of what he has done on radio. He said he thinks he's made it acceptable to talk about masturbation, small penises and things like that.
Jarvis said he had prostate cancer last year and he talked about that with Steve Langford like it was nothing. He said he had an operation in September and his penis stopped working the right way. Jarvis said it's the weirdest thing in the world when he has an orgasm now. He said he's not able to get hard though so he has to wait a while for it to heal. He said he could stick a needle in his dick to get it hard but he can't bring himself to do that.
Howard asked if they could do the radiation thing. Jeff said he was told that it makes you impotent and it could come back and kill you in the future. Howard said they have to figure out a way to do it without killing a guy's hard on.
Howard and Jeff talked about what the operation is like when you're doing the prostate operation. He said they shove a harpoon up your ass like a dozen times when they go in there.
Howard asked Jeff if he would let his wife do another guy if he can't get hard. Jeff said no way. Howard said he wouldn't either. Jarvis said that it's good to talk about this because people should get their prostates checked. Jeff asked the guys if they had theirs checked. They all had.
Howard asked if his dick could get hard again some day. Jeff said it can. He said they remove a lot of stuff to get the prostate out and they have to peel the nerves off of it. He said that it isn't a pretty thing. He said he had to wear diapers for a while. He said he had something stuck up his dick too so he told Gary about that.
Jeff said the worst of it was the size of the catheter that was up his dick. He said that he had to live with that for 10 days. Jarvis said that it was like George Costanza's shrinkage thing too. He said he can't believe he's on the Howard Stern Show talking about his small dick. He said that's what's so great about Howard's show though.
Howard said he has a friend who had prostate cancer and he's able to get it up with Viagra. Jeff said that didn't work for him. Howard was at a loss for words after that. Jarvis said that there's nothing else wrong with him so that's the good thing about this. He said he's been given a clean bill of health now.
Howard took a call from a guy who said that he had prostate cancer. He said he doesn't get hard like he used to. He said he has tried Viagra but it didn't work for him. He said that it took a couple of years to get it back but he has some of it back now. He said he's not able to fuck his wife now. He said he gets the sensation of the orgasm inside but nothing comes out. Howard asked what he does with the wife. He said they do oral and stuff like that.
Jarvis said that he doesn't want this to discourage people from getting checked because this stuff will kill you. Howard took another call from a guy who said he had cancer a few years ago and he has a pump for his penis. He said he still has to use it. The guy said that you put a ring on there and then you get fully erect and it keeps it there. The guy said that they have the best sex that they've ever had using that thing.
Jarvis said it sounds like a lot of work. Howard agreed. The caller said that there are times he can have sex without using the pump but you have to work it out a bit. The guy said he got a pump from the doctor but they do have them in porn stores. Jeff said his insurance pays for just a few Viagra pills a month so maybe that pump would be an option.
Howard said he hopes he never gets this. He said it sounds horrible. Jarvis said he doesn't want people to be discouraged by this. Howard agreed. He said he was thoroughly depressed now.
Howard said that they can't do the Google thing that Jeff suggested. He let the two of them go a short time later and went to break.
Howard came back and had Lisa G come in with her news headlines. Lisa said they have a story about Beth's new book ''Oh My Dog: How to Choose, Train, Groom, Nurture, Feed, and Care for Your New Best Friend'' being reviewed. It got at least one positive review so far. Howard said Beth will be relieved to hear that. He knows the publisher is excited about it. That led to them talking about how they've come up with a new toothbrush design too and he thinks that they've got something cool there. He said Beth gives all of this money she makes to the North Shore Animal League though.
Lisa mentioned the cat that Howard and Beth adopted. Howard said they've had her for a little while and she's got a lot of problems. He said she's a really sweet cat though. Howard said they have a good Vet so they're trying to get everything under control. He said she's the greatest cat ever. Robin said her cats are great too and she doesn't believe that his is the best.
Lisa wondered if there will be an ''Oh My Cat'' book. Howard said he's not sure. He said it could happen. Howard said maybe there will be a follow up. He said it would take her years to write.
Lisa said that Ralph is bummed out about the review of his web site, MyGeekTime.com. Howard said it's just links to things he likes. That's all it is. He said he crows about the thing and it's really not that much of anything. He said he hasn't been on there in a while but he's not sure if it's changed much since then. Howard said he likes his Geektime show and all of that but the web site wasn't that impressive.
Howard asked Jason if he was wrong about the web site. Jason said it's not anything original and it's just links to other sites. It's a work in progress though. Howard said it's not that interesting. He checked it out in the studio and said it looks nice. He said he hasn't seen it that much so he has to say that too.
Lisa said that Ralph went off on Howard about what he said about the site. Lisa said Howard was being a douche and an asshole about the whole thing. He said Howard never even looked at the site. She said Ralph was also going off on them for not being ''man of the people'' types either because of the money they make. He also said that he thinks Gary gets all of this free stuff and then gives it a positive review, big surprise.
Gary said the reason Ralph doesn't make money is because he doesn't try. Gary said he's just as much of a man of the people as Ralph is. Howard said that he and Gary get up at 4 in the morning to support themselves. Howard said Gary works all day long too. Howard and Gary picked Ralph's comments apart and pointed out that Ralph has all the time in the world to write reviews for his web site but he doesn't bother.
Lisa said that Wayne Perry, the inventor of Sinus Buster, has dedicated his book to Howard. He gave credit to Howard for helping his product sell when he started advertising on the show.
Lisa said that Tracey Millman has a show on tonight and she's got one person in mind to blast on her show tonight. Howard let her go after that.
Howard played the clip and the caller was talking about how Ronnie should be doing his job there. Ronnie was staying really calm just saying ''whatever'' to the guy. Ronnie said he had no defense and then he snapped and started yelling at the guy.
Howard said he was proud of Ronnie until he snapped. He said he was calm and then he went nuts. Robin said he's funny.
Howard said he was playing the ''99 Problems'' song last week and someone told him about a mashup of that song with Jimi Hendrix's ''Voodoo Child.'' Howard played that Mashup. Howard said it kind of works. Robin liked the song. Howard said they had a Baba Booey ''Voodoo Child'' song too. He played a little bit of that.
Howard read the article and they were claiming that cell phones aren't dangerous either. Howard said they say that Wi-Fi signals are less than the cell phones or TVs. He said that the signals are pretty weak and they shouldn't be causing any problems.
Howard said Gary told him that it appears that Robin's breasts are bigger than ever this morning. Robin said that was ridiculous. She said that they're the same size they've always been. Howard had her show him what was going on. He said they did look big. Howard said the shirt looks like a good one for her to wear. Howard said they were complimenting her by talking about that. He said her shirt might be a good one to wear if she goes on Fubar.com to date.
Gary said the guys in the Howard TV room said Robin's nipples just got harder. Howard told him to stop with that.
First up was ''Where is Nigeria?'' The caller, Bob, didn't know so he said she wouldn't know either. Lupe said ''California.''
The second question was ''How many sides are on an octagon?'' Bob thought it was 5. Howard said the guy has to do some reading of the newspaper. Bob said he's going to say Lupe won't know it either. Lupe said ''Six.''
The third question was ''What language is spoken in France?'' Bob said she would know. He knew it. Lupe got it right with ''French.''
Bob won $711 from 7-Eleven for that. Howard put him on hold and had Fred play the Little Lupe prank call the guys made to Big Foot where they had phone sex. They went to break after that.
Howard came back and said that Howard TV was very busy. They have the Mr. Skin special running on there now. They have a lot of things going on there. He said the list he had was really long but he stopped there and said you get a lot of bang for your dollar there.
Howard said Courtney Love still wasn't there. Gary said he just heard that she's there in the building. Howard said he has to pee before the interview. He said he has to go through the notes and stuff too.
Howard said Bret Michaels is in critical condition after suffering a brain hemorrhage. He said he wasn't a big fan of Poison or his reality show. Robin said she's seen him on Celebrity Apprentice and she's heard he's a really good guy.
Gary came in and said that he is. He said he just met him like 2 weeks ago there in the lobby. he said that he was deposed for this case that Bret had going on years ago and he seemed like a really nice guy.
Howard said they're not even sure why he's got this hemorrhage going on. He was hit in the head by a curtain at the Tony awards. Howard said that was a long time ago though. Robin said he is conscious according to what she read. She said that they're saying he's critical and his speech is slurred.
Howard said there's a lot going on in the radio ratings too. He said they were writing about how Imus is doing good in the ratings but he's not even beating the guy who he replaced, Curtis Sliwa. Howard said he reads the articles about terrestrial and it makes him want to go back and teach them all a lesson. Howard said that Mark and Brian are like number one in a category so he wants to kick their asses again. Howard read about the demo that they're number 1 in and how it doesn't matter.
Howard said they need to be on in L.A. so they can beat them all. Robin said they are on out there. Howard said he should be on a terrestrial station doing the show. He said he has no desire to go back to terrestrial other than to kick their asses and put them in their place. He said he knows he could still do it. He said it would be funny to just take away their audience. Maybe even if it was just for a year. Robin suggested 6 months instead. Howard said they could do that.
Robin threw out a thank you to Howard she got from some guy who helped her with her luggage yesterday. Howard didn't understand why she was doing that.
Howard read more of the article about the terrestrial radio ratings. He had some quotes about Imus' ratings and how they're saying that they're really successful but they're really not doing that well. He said that Boomer Esiason is doing better than Imus. He said that they replaced Curtis Sliwa with Imus and Imus is barely doing as well as a guy who wasn't even a radio guy. Howard said they claim it's good because their ad revenue is up. Robin said they're paying more for talent though.
Howard said they really should go back for 6 months and kick some ass. He said maybe he'll retire from SIRIUS and take a year off, then got on terrestrial.
Gary said that he just got word that Courtney isn't there yet. He said he just found out that everyone but her is there. Howard said that's going to screw things up because the interview won't start until 9 if this is the way it's going. He said they should handcuff her to a responsible person.
Howard said he feels bad for people who are part of an entourage. He said he's never been out of control in his life. He said he shows up on time all the time. He said he's never late. Howard didn't understand how anyone could be that out of control. He said the public relations people must be freaking out and having major anxieties.
Howard imagined what it would be like dealing with Courtney. He was doing an impression of her telling the publicist to leave her alone as they're knocking on her door. Howard said he loves her as an interview but it can't be easy being the people who have to deal with her.
Howard asked Gary if her people are up there yet. Gary said they're not up yet. He said that the security people were asking if they should come up or stay down there. Howard said he doesn't care either way. He said he would like them to come in and be honest about the whole thing on the air. He knows they'll say nothing is wrong and it's all fine.
Howard said Courtney used to call him all the time and leave him rambling messages in the middle of the night. He said they've known each other for a really longtime. Howard said she was very honest in those messages.
Howard read some mail about Sarah Silverman's appearance and someone thought he was disrespecting her by bringing up her ex Jimmy Kimmel. Howard said he didn't think he was disrespecting her.
Another writer pointed out that Robin didn't let Lisa G cover her on the Wendy Williams Show and that was just wrong. Howard said some people were upset about that.
Howard said they got some mail about Sal and Richard and their bathroom antics. Howard said one email said that they should fire them. Howard read another one where the writer asked him to put an end to those idiots. Howard said that was about their crossing their pee streams in the bathroom.
Howard read some feedback about Ronnie and what a baby he is. Howard read some mail about some of the bits they played last week. Howard went through that and then had Fred play them out to break with the ''Howard Stern as a Retard'' bit.
Howard came back and said that Doug was telling him during the break about something. He said that it was very weird and inside. He said Eric the Midget called last week to ask Howard TV to come and cover him at his high school reunion. Eric was begging them to come. Howard said Doug was interested in going but now it's gotten bizarre.
Doug said that Eric is now claiming that he may only know two people at the reunion. He also thinks that it may not be a good idea for them to come. Eric also thinks that he may not even go to the reunion now. Howard said that kid is a weirdo. Robin said he's just a Wack Packer. Robin said he's the one who brought it up and now he's going off on them complaining.
Howard had Steve Langford come in to talk about that too. He wondered if Eric has some kind of mental disorder. Steve said that Eric and his roommate were both going off on them threatening to break their kneecaps if they did show up. Steve said that they looked into it and found there was no reunion scheduled on the day that Eric claimed.
Howard asked if Eric is nuts. He said he's got to be a Wack Packer. He asked Gary to get Eric on the phone. Gary said he was on the phone with Ronnie and Courtney was about 20 blocks away. Howard said that the show is almost over, he can't be doing an interview this late. Gary said they were calling Eric now.
Steve did his news preview while they waited for Eric. Steve said they have a story about Daniel Carver Jr. being locked up last year and he's still in jail.
Steve said they also have an update on Kenneth Keith Kallenbach's death in a prison and how it seems to be being swept under the carpet. Steve said she sued the Geo Group and she may have settled that suit.
Jon Hein came in with his Wrap Up Show preview next. Jon ran down what he thought they'd be covering today. Courtney Love still wasn't there so they were talking about that a little bit.
Eric said there is a reunion. Eric said he's not going to it because there is only one person he knows that's going to be there. Howard asked why he would beg him to cover it then. Eric said he didn't look at the guest list before. He didn't notice that there would only be one person. Eric said he figured there would be more.
Howard told Eric he's officially crazy. Robin asked why he would scream at them for doing this. Gary said he thinks that everyone knew Eric but he had no friends. Eric told Gary to shut the fuck up. Howard said everyone had to know who Eric was.
Gary said this doesn't make sense. He said there must be a lot of people who knew him. Eric said there was only one name on the list who attended high school while he was there. Howard wondered what kind of reunion it was.
Gary said that it might be one of those Facebook reunions. Eric said that's what it was. Howard said Eric is officially in the Wack Pack. Eric refused to accept that. Howard said he's the one who decides who is in the Wack Pack. Eric said he doesn't want to be in that group. He said he's not like High Pitch Eric or Daniel Carver. He said that they're scumballs and he's not like them. Gary said that's just another reason that he should be in the Wack Pack. He said that he thinks that he's better than the rest of them.
Eric said that he doesn't like those people but if he was in a group with Mariann from Brooklyn then he'd be fine. Howard said no one would threaten to break their kneecaps unless they were in the Wack Pack. Eric said that it was his roommate that did that, not him. Howard said that no one was going to disrupt anything.
Howard took a call from Mariann from Brooklyn who said that Eric is in the Wack Pack and he should just embrace it. Eric said he doesn't have a problem with people like her. He said he has a problem with High Pitch, Janks, Jeff the Drunk and people like that. Mariann said that they're all equals and to be in the Wack Pack is something special. Howard said that he puts people in there.
Gary read Eric's Wikipedia entry and the first line said that he's in the Wack Pack. Mariann said that people would give their life to be in the Wack Pack. Howard said that the Wikipedia thing says he's in there. Eric said that Wikipedia is full of bullshit.
Gary came in and said this is like the Sixth Sense and it's like he doesn't know he's dead. Howard told Eric to just face reality and realize that he's in it.
Eric said that he has been calm and rational with everyone but that idiot reporter of Howard's. He was referring to Steve Langford. Eric said that Steve is insisting on covering the reunion but he doesn't want him to.
Eric said Doug Goodstein said that they weren't going to cover it. He said Steve won't give up on it. Howard said he likes that about Steve. He likes to go after the story.
Gary said ''Goodbye Eric the Midget Wack Packer...'' Eric told him to shut the fuck up and go play solitaire. Jeff the Drunk called in and told him he is a Wack Packer. Eric told him he was trailer park trash. Howard let Eric go after that.
Howard had Robin do her news instead. Robin started her news with a story about a woman who got into trouble for throwing a knife and injuring a 3 year old girl when she got the wrong beer. Robin said that the woman has been booked and is in the county jail.
Robin read about Archie Comics introducing its first gay character. She also had some news about Mariah Carey and how big she's gotten.
Gary came in with another Courtney Love update. He said she's in the lobby on the phone and still not coming up there. Gary said he would have put Ronnie on but his phone connection was bad. Gary said that you can't yell at her but you have to coax her up there somehow.
Gary wondered who sits on the floor of a lobby of a major building like that. Gary said they may have gotten Courtney Love and not Courtney Michelle today.
Robin read a story about an actor in the movie ''Kick Ass'' and Howard said he wasn't interested in seeing the movie but now that he's heard about it he may want to.
Robin read about how they're talking about remaking the movie ''Arthur'' with Russell Brand playing the part that Dudley Moore played. Howard said he likes Russell but there's no reason to remake that movie.
Robin read about Bret Michaels brain hemorrhage. She said that he's under 24 hour doctor care and they're trying to find the source of the bleeding.
Robin read about Jim Carrey going out a lot since breaking up with Jenny McCarthy. He was at a Conan O'Brien show the other night. Robin said that Conan has been out doing this live show and Jim showed up. They covered Five For Fighting's ''Superman'' song. Conan was singing the song when Jim showed up in a Superman outfit and sang along with it.
Howard did a live commercial during that story. Gary came in and said that Courtney was out in the green room. Howard said he was going to finish the news and then get to her. Howard said Robin is almost done so it'll be fine. Howard said maybe they'll do some more later too. He said they'll stay there all month.
Robin read about Gabourey Sidibe hosting Saturday Night Live this weekend. She had some audio of her playing a DMV employee. Howard said that sounded good. He had Robin stop her news after that.
Howard told Courtney she looks good. She then told Howard that she likes to listen to her own voice when she leaves messages so she was doing that. Courtney said she is a texter and a message leaver. She said she's really not playing hard to get or anything.
Howard asked Courtney about what's going on with her. He asked if it's a man thing. She said that's going in the right direction. Courtney said she didn't have sex for 5 years while she was working on this new album. She said she didn't even masturbate.
Howard said there's no way she didn't fuck a guy for 5 years. Courtney said she really didn't. She said she had to avoid it to make this record.
Howard said he could see that Courtney was out of it this morning. She said that she's not on drugs. She said she was crying all night over this guy. Howard said guys are such shit sometimes. Howard said he thinks he has the whole story based on the look on her face. He said it seems that he became unavailable and she was hurt by that. Howard said he might be banging a bunch of other broads too. She said that he might be with other chicks, who knows.
Howard asked what this guy does. She said that it wasn't a rock guy. She said she can't date rock guys. Howard asked if he was a politician. She said that's close. Howard asked if he was Elliot Spitzer. Courtney laughed and said that was ridiculous.
Courtney told Howard that the last time she was on the show it was in her C R A C K days. She said that her publicist told her to never even say that word. She said that she was a mess and someone put her into rehab and got her off of that.
Howard asked Courtney about selling off the rights to Nirvana's music. She said that she's thinking about selling off the rest of it. She said she could net a lot of money from that sale. Courtney said that they're trying to starve her out on this whole thing. Courtney said her net worth is more than her IQ. Howard asked what it is. He asked if she's worth more than $100 million. She said she is but she can't touch the money because of the trust fund thing.
Howard asked Courtney how she can be worth that much and not have access to the money. Courtney said the crack thing happened. Courtney said she doesn't like coke or booze but she had to get through 55 boxes of taxes and stuff. She said she had to stay up enough to go through it all.
Howard said he's worried about Courtney. He said that this guy broke up with her and that's what's making her depressed. He asked if the guy was famous. She said he wasn't. Howard asked if she reached out to him and he didn't respond. Courtney said she reached out to him at the airport last night and they ended up getting into a fight and he said that means that they're too intimate. Courtney said she hasn't seen that much retardedness before.
Courtney told Howard the fight was the most absurd thing she's ever heard. Howard said she's depressed from that now though. He asked why she would get so upset with the guy if she's only known him for a short time. Courtney said she's known the guy for like 20 years but they just recently got intimate.
Courtney said the guy has dumped her and undumped her before. She said she wrote him a letter she hopes she has the guts to send. She said that things are sweet when they're together.
Courtney said that Howard has a pool of women to choose from but she doesn't have a pool of men to choose from. She said that Howard's pool is much bigger than her pool is. Howard said he gets that. She said it's really not fair to women. Robin said that Courtney is limiting the size of the pool though.
Courtney said that she let guys get into her life in the past that took advantage of her. Courtney said she has had guys sign fake power of attorney papers and take her money. Courtney said that she has to sell off the rest of the publishing for her husband's stuff to bring in that money. Howard told her not to sell it off. Courtney said she has to buy a house. She said she has no credit and she needs that money.
Howard said she can't sell it off. That's her future income. Courtney said she'll make her own money. Howard advised her not to sell it off.
Howard asked Courtney if she's a happy person. She said she was yesterday. Howard said she can't let this guy get to her this way. He said it sounds like she's a people addict. She said she's really not because she was alone for 5 years. Howard asked if the guy gave her the heave ho. She said she thinks he's just scared.
Howard asked if she was talking to the guy in the lobby. She said she just left him a message while she was down there. Howard said guys have too much power. He said she made a good point saying that women have less of a pool. Robin said that's not right either. Courtney said life just isn't fair.
Howard asked Courtney if she's Courtney Love or Courtney Michelle. She said that's bullshit. She said that no one calls her Courtney Michelle. She said that her name is Courtney Love. Courtney said it must have been a slow week in the news or something. Courtney said she did an interview with a guy who tried to make out with her and that just wasn't cool.
Howard said he bets that she's good in bed. Courtney said that she has had guy say that she is great in bed. The guy from Blur said she was the best in bed and so did Kurt. Courtney said that she'll also party with girls. She said she's just ''gay enough'' to do that.
Howard asked Courtney if she will do chicks. She said she will do it but only if there's a guy there. Courtney said she only likes kissing and rubbing the titties. She said she will go further but she didn't want to talk about that. Howard wanted to know if she licks the chicks. Courtney said she did have a one on one this one time. Courtney told Howard about how she had this chick chasing her around the room and she figured that was the best person to do it with. Howard asked if it was Janice Dickinson. Courtney said it wasn't, but it was a super model. She said Janice had her day for like a month but that was about it.
Courtney did an impression of the model and Robin guessed it was Kate Moss. Courtney said it wasn't her but she was denying it in an odd way like maybe it was true. Howard figured it really was Kate Moss. Courtney said that she was kind of repulsed a bit doing the one on one thing. She said that it was a good deal with the beauty of the whole thing. Howard asked if she went down on the chick. Courtney said she didn't want to out anyone who didn't want to be outed. Howard asked if there were toys involved. Courtney said she didn't want to go there.
Courtney said that there were some guys around at the time but the other chick didn't want anything to do with them. Gavin Rossdale was one of those guys. Courtney was dating him at the time. They dated for 8 months. Howard asked why she didn't marry Gavin. She said that everyone gave her a lot of shit about that relationship. She said that he was like an Adonis. She said that he got really good in bed. She said that they were fuck buddies and they were fucking while he was with Gwen Stefani. Howard found that to be kind of shocking. He said she's a little temptress. Courtney said they were fuck buddies.
Howard asked what went on with Billy Corgan. Courtney said that she wrote Billy a nice letter and his lawyer took it and typed it up and put it on Facebook. She said that she and Billy had dated and worked on some albums together and now he's threatening to sue her over the new album. She said she's not sure what's going on with him.
Courtney said she met Jessica Simpson, who Billy was dating, and she doesn't think she has anything to do with it. Courtney said she's trying to quit smoking and she found this stuff that's supposed to help you stop. She said that her management is supposed to get her this E-Cigarette but they're just about outlawed at this point. She said she wants to quit but things aren't going the way she wanted. That had nothing to do with Billy though.
Courtney said that Billy Corgan lost his mojo so fast. She said she's never seen someone lose it like that. Courtney said that she's getting good reviews for the album but Billy's last albums were very small reviews. She was all over the place talking about that stuff. It wasn't clear what her point was.
Courtney went off again about the E-cigs and how she can't order them herself because she doesn't have a credit card. Courtney said she has bad credit and she can't get her own credit card. Howard asked what she dos when she has to go to the supermarket. She said they give her 300 bucks. Howard asked who ''they'' are. She said that it's her people. She has a CPA who is also Oliver Stone's CPA. She said that she heard Oliver tell him not to fuck her.
Howard asked Courtney about her mom and when she last saw her. She said it was when she was 25. Courtney said her mom wrote a book about her and that was kind of rude. Howard asked if she confronted her about that. She said she didn't. Courtney said she wrote her mom a note on Facebook about Facebook suggesting her as a friend and she found that funny. She knows that she responded but she didn't read what the response was.
Courtney told Howard that her shrink is into Howard and he's the reason that she's there. She was thinking she may have outgrown Howard's show but he convinced her to do the show.
Howard read about Courtney's mom telling her that she tried to abort her. Howard said that's fucked up. Courtney said that was pretty gross. She said that she's told her worse. Courtney said that she told her that her father molested her as an infant. Courtney said her mom claims that she went to Tijuana to try and get an abortion. Courtney said she likes to think she survived it but the reality is that she probably backed out of the whole thing.
Howard asked Courtney about Dave Navarro. She said that she has only kissed him. Howard asked her about some other guys she's been rumored to have dated. Courtney said that she didn't date Mickey Rourke.
Howard said they heard from Sharon Osbourne that Courtney had done drugs with Jack Osbourne. She said there was some truth to that but she didn't buy him the drugs.
Howard asked Courtney why her daughter is so mad at her. Courtney said that Francis has to be Francis and she isn't getting along with her right now. Howard asked why she's so angry about being Francis. She must have her own money and a lot of it. Courtney said she has a lot of money but she wants her to send her to this Bard college and she needs her to do some stuff for her. Courtney said she has to go to this other school first. There were some problems and she needed to go and deal with some problems she had. She said she didn't have a drug problem but she has to have some narcotics minders with her to make sure that doesn't happen to her. She said she might be into some herbery stuff once in a while. She said she likes to smoke cigarettes too and she was busted by Perez Hilton about that so that kind of bummed her out.
Courtney said that she has resolved some of the issues with Francis but they haven't made up completely. Courtney then went through this story about Britney Spears and somehow Francis came into that story abut she was all over the place talking about this stuff. Howard asked Robin if she was following any of this. Robin said no. Howard said he wasn't either.
Howard asked if they have spoken. Courtney said that they have but only via email. Howard said it sounds like a curse with the family when Courtney and her mom don't get along and now Courtney and her daughter don't get along. Courtney said her mom invoked the whole thing.
Howard asked if Courtney has asked Francis to get back into her life. Courtney said she has but her lawyer is saying no. It's all about the money according to Courtney. She said that they want her to be out on her own so she can get the money her father left to her over the next 22 years. Howard said her life is way too complicated for him. He said he doesn't get it. He said Courtney lost him after the super model story.
Howard said Courtney's body is looking tight. He said he thinks she looks really good. Courtney said she's 5'11'' tall and she was at 101 pounds but now she's back up to 134. She said that she wasn't doing drugs back at 101 pounds though. She said it was just the album that did that to her. Courtney said she was too thin. She said that guys weren't even interested in her. Howard told her to stay the way she is because she looks attractive. Howard said she was too thin but now she looks nice and fuckable.
Howard told Courtney she looks good and she doesn't need this asshole in her life. She said he's not an asshole. Howard and Robin told her not to defend this guy. She said he's really not an asshole. Howard started to wrap up with her a short time later. He gave her a plug for her new album ''Nobody's Daughter.''
Howard asked Courtney what happened to her father. Courtney told Howard about some of what went on with him. She gave the history of that relationship and how things went down. She got sidetracked when she said she went to strip clubs with her people and gave them $600 each to get lap dances. She said that she wanted the dancers to dance for her band but the girls were all coming up to her giving her demos of their music and stuff. She said if she was a lesbian she'd be rolling in it with the girls who are into her.
Howard asked Courtney what the wildest thing she's ever done in bed was. She said she's not going there with him. Howard asked if she gets choked. She said she used to choke herself when she was like 11 and 12. She said she was in Juvenile Hall at the time and she used to choke herself with the pillow case.
Courtney said that her mother was a rich hippie but she ended up going from boarding school to Juvenile Hall. She said she didn't have a great childhood. Courtney said that it wasn't so bad being in Juvi though because of where it was. She said they were all hippies up there in Oregon.
Howard gave Courtney another plug for her album that's coming out tomorrow. Howard said she's doing an in store appearance and playing live at Best Buy in Union Square. She's also doing one at Border's Books in Union Square tomorrow. Howard gave her plugs for both of those appearances. She's kicking off a tour this summer too. you can find out more about the tour at HoleRock.net.
Howard played some of ''Skinny Bitch'' but Courtney was talking to him under the music. Howard talked to her a little more and then got back to listening to the music. Courtney continued to talk over her music though.
Courtney was telling Howard all of the lyrics as the song played. She told him to stick with it to her favorite part. Howard liked the song. He asked if her favorite dykey part was about Kate Moss. Courtney told him to shut up. Howard let the whole song play through.
Howard told Courtney she sounds good. She thanked him for that. Howard asked if she has trouble remembering the lyrics. She said she has a hard time so she uses a teleprompter. She said that it's embarrassing but they got it from Axl Rose.
Howard asked Courtney what she's going to be wearing on Letterman this week. She said she has something picked out for the couch. She said that will be conservative but then she'll get up to rock with a short skirt on. She said she'll put her foot up on the speaker and you'll see some panty.
Howard wrapped up with Courtney and said he's excited about the new album. Howard told her to forget about these men and the stuff with the kid and all of that. He told her to get out there and rock like a rock star. She agreed she has to act like a dude.
Howard said Courtney has some other good songs on the album. He played another one of her songs and spent a few more minutes talking to her. Howard said he had a good time talking to Courtney. He said he didn't understand a lot of what she was talking about though. He told her she should try out that Fubar.com to find a man. She is a handful though.
Courtney was showing Howard some of the tattoos she got done on her. She was kind of showing some of her boob. She said that she got one really crappy one done that says ''Let it Bleed.'' Howard asked if she's a Rolling Stones girl. She said that she kind of is. She said that she's been covering a little bit of their stuff but only like a quarter of one song.
Howard gave Courtney some more plugs and tried to wrap up with her again. They ended up talking about her dating again for a minute though. Howard went to break a short time later.
Howard said he gave Courtney a big hug and it seems like she still loves him. Howard said he used to get calls from her and he never had any idea what she was talking about.
Howard had Robin finish up her news. Robin read some news about Rev. Al Sharpton going to protest in Arizona over a new law they have about illegal immigrants.
Robin read about Facebook's new privacy settings and how Chuck Schumer wants to have some rules for these social networking sites. She had some audio of Schumer talking about that.
Robin read a story about a man who was left bleeding to death on the sidewalk for hours. The man tried to help a woman during a robbery and the guy got stabbed and left to die. Gary and Howard were saying that the guy may have been homeless so they didn't think much of it seeing the guy laying there.
Robin read some news about President Obama and how he's been talking about how the economy is recovering.
Robin read a story about Steven Hawking telling people that it's mathematically unlikely that this is the only planet where life has evolved. Robin said that he's saying that maybe we won't find people but we may find something. Howard said that he's also saying that contacting aliens might be a big mistake because they could come here and use up our resources. Robin said that his special will be airing on the Discovery Channel starting this weekend.
Robin read that Lindsay Lohan was dropped from a movie called ''The Other Side'' and they're saying that it's because she's ''not bankable.'' Howard said the other people in that movie don't sound like they're bankable either. Howard said she's just as bankable now as she was when they signed her to do the movie. He said if they make a good film then everyone is bankable.
Robin read a some news about the box office takes for this weekend. Howard said he watched Kindergarten Cop this weekend and he loved it. He said he watched that and that Sandra Bullock movie ''The Proposal.'' he said he liked that one too. Robin said she liked ''The Messenger'' too.
Robin read about Whitney Houston having some trouble on her tour. She was struggling to get through some of her hits. She had to stop to catch her breath a couple of times during songs. Howard said they played that clip of her last week and even he could sing it better than her. JD came in to tell Howard he didn't have that clip and Fred goofed on him doing his impression of JD for a minute. Howard got in on that too.
Robin asked Howard if he was into this DJ Gweta that has his own album out. Howard wasn't familiar with it. Robin said he has a track out now that he just made a video for. Howard said the guy just mixes the songs though.
Robin said she had audio of Jennifer Lopez talking about her new movie. Howard played some of that and cut it off so he could play the awful Whitney Houston performance he was talking about. They ended the show a short time later, right around 11:00am.
Benjy explained to Gary what she was so upset about and how she had said that she was trying to leave him a message for like a half hour and wasn't able to get it right.
Gary said people who are late are always later than they say they will be. He said that if they say 10 minutes it turns out to be 20. That's just the way it goes.
Jon asked how hard it is to deal with someone like that. Gary said he's deal with her people before and they're handcuffed. It's not their fault that she's showing up late. Gary said they all want her to be there and it's all in their best interests. He said that's why they love Courtney though and that's how Anna Nicole was too. He said she just comes and goes as she pleases. Gary said Courtney is never going to be a bad guest. He said she's always going to speak her mind.
Jon asked Gary about the calls Howard would get from Courtney and how he would deal with them. Gary said Howard used to call her back and one morning she ended up on the air talking about how she was going through paperwork. She was right there in the city so they sent a car down to pick her up. She ended up coming in dressed in her nightgown. He said that turned out to be one of those funny interviews with Artie doing his the impression of her to the music.
Gary said that morning Courtney was on her way out and she started to walk around wondering where she was supposed to be. He said that they can't let a car park downstairs so they kept calling her to get her to come down. She was stopping in every office talking to everyone she came across. Gary said they finally got her in the car and she called back about an hour later. Gary said she had a lot more stuff to talk about and she wanted to send a picture of her daughter over to Howard. A couple of hours later they got the picture and a month later Tom came to him and told him that the bill they got was for twice as much as it should be because she used the car service to send the picture back to the studio. Gary said that picture cost them $400 to get there so he keeps it on his desk to tell people about how it's his $400 picture of Francis Bean.
Jon took a call from a guy who asked why Howard puts up with her coming in so late and not with other people. Gary said it might be because she's such a good interview and that he knows her so well.
Another caller asked Gary about a segment that they had replayed and he thought that it was someone else who drove her around that day that Gary was talking about. Gary said that those people may have shown up when she went to get into the car that day.
Gary said they had Scott Weiland show up late one time and Howard was telling him to tell him to go home but then they had him in. Gary said it's easy for Howard to tell them to go home but he's not the one who has to tell them. Gary said he has to do that and the people will freak out saying that Howard is the bad boy of radio and he'd do the same thing.
Gary said Courtney finally got up there and then she said she had to do her make up. Gary said he had to tell her people that they were about 5 minutes from Howard telling her to just go home. He had to get them to rush her through that.
Another caller said he wanted to share a Courtney Love story. He said he went to a concert of her's and she stage dove and they pulled her dress off. She was up on stage yelling at some guy for sticking his finger up her ass and this roadie was trying to give her a robe but she yelled at the guy for the finger thing until they threw him out.
Gary said he saw a concert one time when she did the crowd surfing thing and saw her get her ring stolen and she got fingered.
Jon said Courtney claims that she's worth like $100 million. Gary said that Nirvana catalog has to be worth a lot. They talked about how she wants to get rid of it but it's also worth a lot and it could bring her a lot of money in the future.
Gary talked about how Scott DePace had asked him if he had any idea what she was talking about during the interview. He said Howard even asked what she was talking about because even he didn't know. Benjy said he was able to follow most of what she was saying.
The caller said he thinks that Robin is jealous of Howard and it's pretty obvious to him. Gary said no one else is feeling that way. He said he hasn't sensed that at all. Jon hasn't either.
That call led to Jon asking Gary about Robin's big boobs comments. Gary said she was wearing something very tight and it showed off her boobs. He said that he noticed that and a lot of the other guys did too.
Gary said they were also talking about how Robin had made 9/11 all about herself when he heard about what they said on the Superfan Roundtable.
Jon played a clip from the show where Howard kicked Sal out of the studio after Sal brought up the discussion.
Sal came in and asked if he's the only one who is going to call bullshit on Robin. He said that she's claiming she lost weight because of 9/11. Jon said that it had an effect on her and she's just saying that's what motivated her to lose it. Gary said she was saying that she would have been one of those people that would have to be carried down the stairs.
Sal said that no one else in America was motivated to lose weight. He finds that to be absurd. Sal said he thinks that Robin is so obsessed with her weight loss that she's trying to paint a picture there about being down and out and what her motivation was. He said she seems to be attaching it to something so incredible that people will have to listen to her. Sal said it was 10 years ago and he finds the whole thing to be nutty.
Sal said that 9/11 affected people in different ways but this is odd. He said that it was weight loss and it was 10 years ago.
Gary said he finds it odd that Sal gets in the studio and he starts to whip out the jokes and he gets drunk on the success. Gary said he's big on getting out of there before he's in there too long but Sal just stays in until he's been in there way too long.
Jon asked Sal about the BBM messages that he was responding too over the weekend. Sal said he had no idea where they were coming from but they had some fun with that. Gary said he was out at a Communion on Saturday and didn't see any of that going on. He said he figured he wasn't in the group but then realized he didn't have the BBM thing turned on. He's not sure how it works anyway.
Jon took a call from a guy who said he wanted to talk about Robin and how narcissistic she is. He said that Gary and Jon seem to lean toward Robin and overlook it. Gary said she can be narcissistic at times but he knows her very well and she's not going out of her way to be that way. Gary said they call her on it all the time too. The caller said that she may not even know that she's so enamored with herself.
Gary asked the caller if he thinks Robin is nuts for saying that 9/11 inspired her. The caller said a lot of what she says is kind of different. He said she's way into those charities and the diet and the lack of sleeping. He said she stands behind all of that stuff even though they say it's not good for you.
Another caller said that Jon and Gary are all wrong about Robin. He said that he thinks that Robin wants to go to the party out in L.A. so she can meet with people out there so she can get her TV show going. He said he's not sure why they don't see that. He said he thinks that Robin got a taste of the Hollywood sect and she thought she was going to be out there doing her show and now she's not. She's doing paneling now and going on all of these shows and she's not sure what her future will be.
The caller said that he doesn't think Robin is upset with Howard but she does want to go to that party. He said she should be able to get her own show because she did bust her ass working with him the past 29 years. The caller said that Gary seems to be blinded to anything Robin does. Gary said he's starting to think he should go to that party after what this guy has been saying.
The caller made a comment about Benjy being stupid so the two of them argued about who was smarter for a minute. Gary said he really doesn't see what this caller is talking about. He said Robin would go to the party but he doesn't think she's going to try and get her own show going. Gary and the caller went back and forth about that whole thing for a few minutes. Gary said that Robin may not have as strong of a brand as Howard does but he doesn't think she's focusing on this party the way the caller thinks she is. They went to break a short time later.
Jon played a clip from the show where Howard was going off on Gary about that. After the clip Gary said that they did play both of the inters for Howard and he wasn't interested in the songs that weren't covers of hit songs.
Sal said it was funny and it's always good when Gary takes a beating on the show. Gary said that he didn't think he did anything wrong. He said that he wasn't trying to sabotage the show.
Steve Brandano said he wanted to give that poor guy a plug after that bashing he took. He said he doesn't have a record deal but he is very successful. He said you can find him at Myspace.com/TheCleanersMusic.
Jon took a call from a woman who asked when they're going to have Eric the Midget on. She said he hasn't been on enough lately. She thinks that they should have him in to compete against Sal. Gary said he will fly Eric and his whole family in to play Wack Pack Family Feud. He said he wants Eric to be known as ''Eric the Midget Wack Packer'' from now on too.
Jon took another call from a woman who said that whoever is answering the phones has a very sexy voice. She went on to say that she'd like to know why Howard hasn't gone off on Beth for hawking these products like the wives of other guys like Imus. She said Howard used to go off on those people all the time. Gary said that it's something that Beth is passionate about and she's sending all of her money to charity. He said that they're not acting like it's anything different.
The caller said that Gary isn't being honest. She said that Imus and his wife put their money into a charity too. She said that it's disingenuous to say that it's something different. She said she believes that Beth is good for Howard but it's a lot of horse shit that no one is saying anything about Beth going on a book tour. She said she doesn't think Beth has any expertise in this dog stuff.
The caller said she thinks that it's fine to go out and do this book but no one would be talking about it if she wasn't the wife of Howard Stern. She said that it's the same thing about Imus' wife or Seinfeld's wife or anyone else like that. She said Howard used to bash the shit out of those people and now he doesn't. She said they have to point that out to Howard.
Benjy said that Imus was also living at his ranch and Howard isn't living at the North Shore Animal League. The caller said that's just ridiculous. She said it used to be fun listening to the show when someone would rail against Howard. Now no one does that. She said that they could play tape of him bitching about Don Imus and his trophy wife and then point out that Howard is doing the same thing.
Gary asked the woman what she does for a living. She's an attorney so Gary told her to go into work and goof on her boss. She said she owns her own practice so she can't do that. Gary said he bets there are a lot of people who work under her who are afraid to goof on her.
Jon took a call from a guy who asked Jon why he's unable to get his mic turned on when he goes into the studio with Howard. Jon said he just forgets sometimes. Jon said he doesn't forget to do it on purpose. The caller didn't know that it was actually Howard who forgets to turn the mic on.
Jon took a call from a guy who said that he gets less than 3 hours of sleep a night and the caller who went off on Robin about that earlier is out of line. He said some people can live on that much sleep. The caller was also saying that Robin looks better than almost anyone at the age she's at.
Sal agreed that Robin is beautiful. He said that using 9/11 as a crutch is a little wacky but she is a beautiful woman.
Gary told Sal that his hair line is retreating really fast. Sal said it really is. Gary said his favorite picture was of Gange at his wedding because he had so much hair he didn't know what to do with it all. Now he's bald.
Jon took another call from a guy who said he thinks Robin is full of shit about 9/11 too. He said that Robin has gone up and down with her weight and she has bumped on and off over the years. Gary said after 9/11 she started to do the Master Cleanse and things like that. She didn't wait 10 years to start doing it. He said she has been trying since 9/11.
The caller agreed that Robin sounds wacky talking about that stuff the way she does. He was saying he also misses Artie like crazy. He wishes that he was there laughing his ass off at the Big Foot and Little Lupe call. Gary said he may have to send that one to Artie on CD because it's so good.
Jon took another call from a guy who said he builds computers and he's been doing that his whole life. He said in the past 2 years he bought a Mac and he hasn't had to reboot his computer in like 6 months. He thinks Howard would be smart to switch over. Gary said he has both and the Macs are good for editing video and stuff. Jon said they don't always jive well with what they use on the show though.
Jon took one last call from a guy who asked if they're offended by Howard not saying what he's going to be doing at the end of the year. He said that he doesn't think that they'll all be starving or anything and they will have options. Gary said he thinks that they will be able to find work. He said even Howard may not believe that they won't be able to find work. The caller said that he's going to follow Jon after he leaves because no one is attacking him. He said Ralph might put the heat on him once in a while but not that much. Jon said he hopes he can keep it going. They had to end the show a short time later.
Howard started the show talking about how upset Gary was about Tracey trashing him on her show last night. Howard said Gary thinks that he's created a nightmare giving everyone shows. He said he might be right. Howard said Tracey has feelings about Gary and she let them all out last night. Howard said she just did her job. Howard said Gary and Tracey have to work together every day though so it's going to be tough.
Gary said he read some email last night about the show and someone took it to the next level and said they thought he was a racist. He said he's not even sure what she said yet. He said that she never came to him to discuss whatever her problem is with him.
Howard said if you do bring that stuff up then you have to deal with people the next day. Gary said he doesn't think anyone is immune from Tracey other than Howard. Howard said maybe he's perfect. Robin said that's not true.
Howard said he heard a guy on the Wrap Up Show saying that Robin is jealous that he's going out to Los Angeles because she needs to network out there. Robin laughed. She said she doesn't need to do that. Gary said that's what they told the caller and the caller thought there was no way Robin would get meetings with anyone if she didn't go out there.
Howard said Robin doesn't even live out there so there's no reason for her to be invited to Jimmy's party. Robin said she's just excited that Howard is getting out of the house.
Howard said he loves Jimmy but he hates going to L.A. He said he appreciates Jimmy inviting him over but the party isn't really something he's looking forward to. He said he needs to sleep and the party is at 7pm out there which is 10pm Eastern. He said it's going to be tough.
Howard had a clip of the guy that was on the Wrap Up Show coming up with the weird theory that Robin is jealous of Howard being invited to Jimmy's party out there. Robin said she's excited that Howard is going on this trip. She said it will be fun when Howard comes back.
Howard said he's hearing from a lot of people who want to come to the party out there. He said he's not even a part of it. It's all Jimmy. He said he wanted to do the party at 4 o'clock but Beth can't do it until 7 so it's going to be a nightmare. He said he's a neurotic mess and he never thinks he's getting enough sleep.
Robin said he won't be working out there though so he can sleep in as much as he wants. Howard said he's never going to get over this. He's in therapy 3 days a week and he never gets better.
Howard said he was obsessing about prostate cancer after Jeff Jarvis came in and talked about that. He said he was thinking that he's going to end up with it and that would be his worst nightmare. Howard said you'd think that doctors would be able to remove the cancer without ruining a guy's boner.
Gary said that the other option is death though. Howard said he just got really upset about it. He said something has to be done about this prostate cancer thing. He said that Bones said to Captain Kirk on Star Trek that the old medical ways were barbaric. He was right.
Gary said Jeff Jarvis was asking him about the stent he had put in him when he had kidney stones and Jeff told him that the one he had was even thicker than the one he had.
Howard said this cancer thing is really awful. He said it's barbaric the way they have to remove this stuff. He said he had a bad day based on all of that. He couldn't stop thinking about it.
Howard had the follow up discussion about Robin to play. In that clip another caller told Gary and Jon they were wrong and Robin was upset that she wasn't going out to L.A. The caller thinks that she does want to go out there and this is her last chance to get a job.
Robin asked who is going to be at the party that she has to meet. Howard said that Adam Carolla is going to be there. Gary said he was fighting with those guys and telling them they were wrong. Howard said Bob Iger from Disney is supposed to be there at the party.
Howard said Jimmy comes over to his house a lot when he's in New York. He said Jimmy decided to have him over and he invited a few people. Howard said Jimmy's other big friend is Huey Lewis from Huey Lewis and the News. He said he thinks he lives out in Montana or something like that. Gary said he's also friends with the lead singer from Men at Work. That's the kind of networking Jimmy is doing.
Howard said John Stamos is friends with Ralph. He said those two hang out a lot and it's like kismet for them.
Howard played more of the Wrap Up Show where Gary was arguing with the caller about Robin being jealous. Gary was saying that Robin doesn't need Howard to help her network out there.
Howard said it should be fun out there. Robin said she's looking forward to it for Howard. She said it should be fun and they should hear some good stories about it when he returns.
Howard said Tracey was trashing Gary and Lisa G. Gary said they have 10 clips but Scott said he could have pulled 20.
In the first clip Tracey was going off on Gary about what a piece of shit he is. Tracey said that the only one who treats her different than everyone else is Gary. She said that Gary warned her that it was like a boy's club there and he's the only one who makes it that way. She said that Gary never tells her stuff that he needs to tell her. She said he'll tell Jason and Jason will forget to tell her.
Howard had to stop the clip and try to figure out what was going on. Gary said he goes to her office like once a week. He said that you have to respect her or else you're disrespecting her. He said if you hang around her enough then you're going to disrespect her. Gary said he likes Tracey and he'll sit down to talk to her once a week.
Gary said one of the things she's mad about is the ski house he has. He said the house is tiny and he had him, Jon, Will and Jason there. He didn't invite Tracey because the place has one big room with a couple of beds. He said they were snoring and all of that so it would have been uncomfortable to sleep in that group of guys.
Gary said that the other thing is that he joined the Friar's club and he got some of the guys together to do that. He said he invited a bunch of guys and Tracey. He said he had something come up and he canceled so he's a piece of shit for that too.
Gary said that sometimes he'll cancel a meeting and tell Jason to tell people about it and Tracey is upset about that too. He said that's a sign of disrespect according to her. Gary said he doesn't treat her that bad and he's not sure why she makes it out that way.
Howard played more of the audio of Tracey going off on Gary and she was saying they have an intercom system that Gary could use. Howard stopped it and said he knows how hectic things can get in there. Gary said he does use the intercom sometimes and he doesn't think that he's disrespecting her the way she says he is.
Howard played more of Tracey going off on Gary and she was telling Gary to stop playing his Solitaire and Sporcle games. Howard didn't know what that was. Gary explained the game to Howard like he barely knew what it was even though he has played it.
Gary said he's not sure how he's supposed to go through his day today. He said she's going to want respect from him but she's trying to scare people into respecting her.
Howard played more of the audio of Tracey going off on Gary and she was saying that he's disrespecting her. Howard had more clips of her going off on Gary about other things too. Tracey said ''that mother fucker'' told her to come into his office and clean out his refrigerator. She said she threw everything away after asking him if it was his food. She couldn't believe that he did that to her. She said that was very disrespectful and he was treating her like a piece of shit. Tracey was going off on him about how he only calls her about toilets overflowing and things like that. She said Gary is the only one who treats her that way too. She said it's not her fucking job to clean out his fucking refrigerator.
Gary explained what goes on with the refrigerator there. He said it became a community fridge and he doesn't know that he asked Tracey to clean it out. He said he may have asked her to have someone find out whose stuff was in there and she may have taken it the wrong way. Gary said he's sorry about that but he just needed the refrigerator cleaned. He said the other thing she was talking about with the toilet being flooded is something else. He said he just tells her about the bathroom because she's the one who calls the people to take care of it. He asked who else is supposed to handle it other than the office manager.
Robin said she still has an issue with the refrigerator. Gary said he can't just take it all out and throw it in the garbage. He said that he doesn't tell her ''clean it out bitch'' like she's making it sound.
Howard and Robin said it sounds like there's a lot of miscommunication going on there. He said he had more clips to play from her show. He asked what the name of the show is anyway. They said it's called The Happy Hour. Howard thought that title was pretty funny based on the way Tracey was bashing Gary.
Howard had another clip of Tracey talking about the shit sprinkle on the toilet bowl. Tracey said that they took pictures of the sprinkle and she went to Gary to talk to him about it and Gary acted like he wasn't the police of people there. Tracey said that Gary was talking to Ross at the time she brought the news to him and he went off on her later when he brought it up with Howard. Tracey said Gary was telling stories to Ross and probably talking about Bruce Springsteen or some other nonsense. She said that she's sick of Gary's nonsense stories.
Gary said Ross stops by every morning and they have a meeting every Monday. He said they talk about promotions and stuff and they may talk about other stuff during that conversation. He shouldn't have to explain that stuff to Tracey. Howard said he gets that. He said it's never all business in a meeting.
Gary said he absorbs what she has to say but she has zero respect for Ross. He said they may as well be two assholes on the street. She said that she's already got that in her head when she sees them talking.
Gary said he had to keep Tracey and Ross from killing each other the first year they were there. He said Tracey would get pissed at him for playing music too loud in his office. He said he had to ask Ross to turn it down and he defended Tracey in that argument and he's still a piece of shit. Howard got a note saying that she was the one playing music too loud. Gary said that may have been another time but the story he had was Ross playing it too loud.
Howard played another clip of Tracey going off on Gary about the ski house. Gary kept saying that the place is really tiny and he couldn't even bring all of the guys with him. He said he only invited a couple of guys up there. He has four beds, that's it.
Robin said Tracey seems to think that she belongs on this other tier that the invited guests are. Howard played more of Tracey talking about how she thinks Gary fucked up and felt guilty. She said they were all invited to the Friar's club and that was how he was making it up to them. Gary interrupted and said that he was just making a gesture to the guys to invite them out to lunch and it had nothing to do with the ski house.
Howard said maybe Gary shouldn't invite anyone to anything. Gary said there were only four beds in that place. Howard said he doesn't have to explain that to him.
Howard played more of Tracey talking about how Gary has wronged her. She was telling a story about how they had a project in the works where they were clearing out the Prophet system. She said that Gary wasn't meeting with Kevin Kraft and he lost a ton of material that they were working on.
Gary said that is not true. He said Kevin was coming to him every day and he would cover stuff every day. He said he never said he wasn't talking to Kevin. Gary said that she thinks that there's some kind of conspiracy plot there against her. Howard said he wishes that Tracey was there. Gary said he doesn't. He said he doesn't want to be at war with her. He said he'd rather put his energy into the show instead of into this fight. Gary said he is not at war even if she's declaring war on him. Gary said she can kick him the balls but he's not going to go there with her.
Robin said that when the guys there get into it the fight ends and they're over it. She asked if they can do that with Tracey. Gary said he's not sure. He said she doesn't appear to want things to get better around there.
Howard played a little more of that Tracey clip and said that she also got into it about Lisa G and Teddy the board op. Gary said Teddy may have made the mistake of saying something to Jason last night and Jason is seen as a Gary sycophant so that didn't look good to Tracey. Teddy revealed that Gary was the target for the show that night and Tracey was upset with him about that.
Howard said Tracey won't do stories with Lisa G. He played the audio of Tracey going off on Lisa. JD was in and asking her about what that was about. Howard said JD was good on that show. He wasn't mumbling. All of a sudden he was articulate. Tracey was saying that she didn't want to go there with Lisa G and it wasn't personal. She said it was work wise and she felt there were some shady things going down. Tracey then went off on Teddy about what was going on with him.
Howard said he thinks that Tracey was upset that a private conversation with Lisa G ended up on the air. That was the shady thing that was going on.
Gary said he's not sure why she has to do this stuff on her show. He said that maybe she shouldn't do the show. He said there is no performance going on there. He said that she's the same person on and off the air. Howard said people love the show.
Gary said if he were looking for a job 5 years from now he'd be embarrassed that this show was out there. He said that she's a big girl and she can do this or not do it and no one is forcing her to do what she's doing. He said she could just say she's uncomfortable doing the show.
Robin said there seems to be a double standard there. She said she hears stuff on the Wrap Up Show that's pretty harsh and she doesn't really care. Gary said this was an ambush on him. He said he would have stayed to talk to her on the air about it last night if she had wanted him to.
Howard said it's supposed to be Tracey's Happy Hour. Gary said that Tracey is the only happy one. He said everyone lives in fear of her there. He said she can be a bully at times. Howard said he's going to have to have her address that when she gets in.
Howard took a call from a guy who said Tracey is a total dick. He said that it's Howard's fault too. Howard said he thinks that she's terrific on the air so maybe it is his fault. The caller asked if Gary thinks this is the way she feels about him. Gary said yes. He said he believes that she's upset with him about that stuff.
The caller said that's fucked up and he wondered why they would let that go on. Howard said that's the show. He said her show is all about doing that stuff. It does cause repercussions there. Gary said he has fought with other people there too but he will be able to work with her. He said he's not going to stop functioning. He said the show is more important than any one person there.
Another caller said Tracey should be doing this stuff face to face with Gary and not on the air. He also asked what school she went to because she doesn't seem to know many adjectives.
Mariann from Brooklyn called in and said that she was sickened by that show last night. She said that Tracey had no respect for anyone there. She said that she shouldn't be on the air with her because that would be a real show. Mariann said that she repeats the same phrases over and over again too. Howard had to hang up on her since she wouldn't stop going off on Tracey.
Another caller said Gary is a dick. He said he treated Yucko like shit too. He said he can imagine Gary making threats toward Tracey. Gary said that's not what he was doing.
Howard took a call from Sour Shoes who was doing impressions of Tracey and of Mariann. The impressions were remarkable. Howard said he's such a talent. He said that he calls Ralph at home and sometimes he'll call him as Gary and Ralph believes it's Gary. Sour went into his Gary impression and it really was very good. Then he broke into his Ferrall impression and then some more Tracey.
Howard asked Sour if he can have a conversation between Gary, Tracey, Ferrall and Mariann from Brooklyn. Sour went into those impressions and changed from person to person creating a conversation. He really is amazing.
Howard had a conversation with Sour as Tracey and Mariann. Sour would switch from one to the other in a second. Howard got some sports updates from Sour Ferrall and from Sour Gary. Howard asked Sour Ferrall how his wife was doing and he would go on and on about that. Howard would have him switch over to Tracey and he'd come up with Material immediately. Howard thanked him and let him go a short time later. Robin said that was amazing. Howard said he really is good.
Gary said they have no guests today so he knows that Tracey is going to come in and beat up on him some more. He said he'd like it to be done after that.
Bobo called in and asked how Gary is going to be able to come in and work with this woman. Howard said that both of them see each other as out of control so they have to work things out. Gary said he has to have more face to face time with her and he has to respect her. Howard said he can take Gary's side in this because he tells his guys to run down and tell Tracey stuff sometimes because he's busy. Gary said that telling someone to tell someone else isn't a sign of disrespect.
Gary said Tracey is obsessed with the bathroom and she gets pissed when people drop a hair in there. He said that she's out of control with that. Howard said they have to talk to her later. Gary said he wants to wrap up this whole thing on this show and not do it again on the Wrap Up Show. Howard said they'll do the wrap up of the Happy Hour on this show and then Gary and Jon will have to wrap up this show on the Wrap Up Show.
Howard said Jon looks like a wolf who just got a piece of meat. Jon said that they're definitely going to talk about this on the Wrap Up Show. Jon's voice was sounding kind of odd so Gary said that he must be sick so they can't do the show today. Howard told Jon to try lots of lemon to get rid of the voice thing. He suggested some warm water too.
Howard asked JD what was going through his mind on the show last night. JD said that he was laughing and he was actually pushing the mic away at times last night. He said that she had trouble getting angry on the first show. He was trying to help get her pissed last night. He said that he was the one who threw Teddy under the bus last night and Teddy got mad at him because he knew it was him who told her.
Howard took a call from Cyrus who said that Gary is the one who says that people don't ''get'' the show so he wondered if Gary doesn't ''get'' her show. Gary was gone already so Howard said he'd talk to him about that later.
Howard took a call from a guy who said the Sour Shoes thing was great. He said he was going to cancel his subscription next month but now he may have to keep it.
Howard said he's going to give Tracey 3 nights a week based on this feedback. He said that it must be tough for her to be the office manager and deal with this. He said it was good stuff though. Howard said he had never heard of Sporcle before. He said he didn't know that Gary was playing that game too.
Howard said he heard that Robin was yelled at about her fake eyelashes. Robin asked if she left them around or something. Robin said they may come off and she may not throw them out. JD said it was just an annoyance and it wasn't anything major. It was something about the bathroom and Robin leaving the lashes in there. Howard said maybe Tracey's access should be limited for that bathroom.
Howard asked what school Fred went to. One was Manchester Community College and the other was Western Connecticut State College. He said that later became a university after he went there.
Howard said he's an idiot himself. He said that he's so dumb that he can't keep track of the hours he plays chess. He said he adds up the hours he's done and he has to pay this guy who teaches him. He said it took him a half hour to add up the minutes the right way. He said that it can't be that difficult but he wasn't able to do simple math. Robin said that's because he went to bad schools.
Howard said his father always told him he was dumb. He said that didn't help. Fred said that Darryl Strawberry's father did the same thing to him from what he saw on a special about him.
Fred said he thinks he was tested and he came out around a 135-140 IQ. Howard said that's impressive. Howard asked if he wants to take the IQ test now. Fred said he'd rather not. He said he really doesn't want to take it. Howard told him to just do it. Fred said he'd rather not.
Howard said they could find out that Fred is a genius. The caller said that he wants to know who is smarter out of Sal, Richard and Scott DePace. Howard said he thinks Sal is smarter than Richard. He said he may not be book smart but he may have some intelligence there. He said he thinks that Sal could even beat JD. Robin said that JD's mind races.
Howard said that Scott DePace went to Glassboro State and that college doesn't even exist anymore. Howard asked Scott if he thinks that he could beat JD, Sal and Richard. Scott said he thinks he could. Howard said he thinks that JD would be at the bottom. JD said he thinks he can beat Sal and Richard. JD said he beat Will in a test online. Will came in and said that he was hung over that day and it was like a McDonald's test they took online. Will said that he'll take a test with him any day. Howard said he'd put up prize money for that.
The caller said it would be funny if they found out JD had a really high IQ of like 150. Howard said Scott isn't in the Fred category but he thinks he's kind of smart. He thinks that Fred would come out on top though.
Howard said maybe Scott and Fred should play Win Fred's Money. Scott said that has nothing to do with IQ though. Howard said he's going to have to test them with a professional IQ test company.
Howard said he thinks that Gary would be surprising to people. He said he's a smart guy. Howard said he thinks that Sal will beat Richard and maybe Scott DePace. Howard said he'd probably bet on DePace though. Sal came in and said he will smoke Scott in the test.
Howard said Richard is really out of it and he doesn't have an ounce of intelligence. Sal said he doesn't think he'll beat Richard but he may beat JD and Scott DePace. Howard said he wants to bet on this and not with pussy bets. He said he wants a minimum of $500 bets.
Sal said he thinks that Scott is stupid because he's so set in his ways. Gary said they have looked into this before and they have to administer the tests off the air. Gary said they can get it done though. Robin said Scott wasn't able to grasp why you don't hit a dog. Scott said he still doesn't.
Gary said that people think Richard isn't as stupid as they think he is. Howard asked Gary if he would take Richard over Sal with a $500 bet. Gary said that's a tough one. Sal said he would put Richard over him. Gary said that they have to think logically.
Sal said if it's based on logic then she's out with that 9/11 theory that she has. Robin said that Sal doesn't even know what a theory is. She said that her point wasn't a theory. Howard tried to explain to Sal what Robin was talking about but Sal doesn't understand that it's not a theory. It was a revelation to her that she had to lose weight after that.
Gary and Howard were betting on Sal and Richard. Gary took Richard. Howard took Sal. Richard came walking in and he was walking funny. Howard said he was walking like a retard. Richard said nothing was going on but Howard wasn't so sure about that.
Howard wondered who people would bet on between Jason and Scott DePace. DePace said that they took a test once and he beat Jason. Jason said they never took an IQ test and the test they took was identical. Jason said he has no fear of taking a test against DePace. Robin said she would pick Jason over Scott. Howard said he's going to pick Scott.
Jason said Scott is intelligent but he isn't very bright. He said he can't look at something in a new way. He knows what he knows and that's it. Jason said he went to Rutgers and he took communications classes. Howard said he thinks that he has to pick Scott in this. Robin said she'll put $1000 on Jason to come out above Scott.
Howard asked Scott if he really thinks that he can win. Scott said he will wipe the floor with Jason. Jason said he's not going to crack and he's going to kick ass with the test. Howard said he's sticking with Scott. Scott said if he wins then he should get to see Robin's boobs. Robin wondered what she'd get if he lost. There was no response.
Howard took a call from a math teacher who said she wanted to give the test. Howard said he wants to give a real test and he's not going to have someone like that giving the test. Another caller said that he could do a psychological test. Howard said he would like to test Ronnie with that. The caller said they can test for varying degrees of psychosis. Howard said he's pretty sure Ronnie wouldn't pass that one. The caller said he has some tests he can give to them and they take about a half hour.
Jon Hein can give them the real tests that are like 3-4 hour long tests. Gary said it might be worth it. Howard asked if they should let this guy give the test. Gary said they should have Jon in to talk about it.
Jon Hein came in and said that there are a few tests and they're different so some people will complain if they don't do well.
The caller said he can give the test one on one. He said that they don't do a group test. Howard said they should do it that way. The caller said that they take oral responses with the test he does. Howard said he thought it was a booklet. The caller said some of it is booklet but some of it is oral. Howard said he's going to get in touch with that guy and talk to him more about it.
Jon Hein said that they have to look at what they're testing and he thinks that Scott DePace would beat Jason on this test he's thinking of giving. He said that Sal may not do that well based on his street smarts. He thinks Howard is going to lose 500 bucks.
Howard said he had to take a break and talk about this more after the break. He said they can start the betting after that.
Howard ended up asking Gary if he had friended this sponsor of theirs on Facebook. Gary hadn't but that led to them talking about how JD will accept anyone on his Facebook account. Tim Sabean and Vinnie Favale are a couple of others who will do that. Scott DePace also does that but he came in and said he has two lists. He has one for fans and one for people close to him. Scott said he heard that Howard was friends with one of his close friends. Howard said that isn't him. Howard said he only has like 10 friends and if you don't know him personally then you're not talking to him on Facebook.
Howard came back and said that Dancing with the Stars pisses him off. He said he was up watching it last night. The show is unfair. He said that they have professional dancers on the show and the whole premise is to have celebrities on the show to dance, not professionals. He said that they were coming up with bogus criticisms for the chick from the Pussycat Dolls. He said they were talking about how it wasn't a legitimate dance she was doing and it wasn't even up to her. He said the professional dancers come up with the moves. he said that they should be blaming that person, not the chick. He said it was effortless for her to dance since she's a pro. He said that Pam Anderson is more impressive to him because she's not a professional.
Howard said that the Pussycat Dolls chick is a professional choreographer and it's not fair to have her going up against these people who don't dance for a living.
Howard said he still hasn't found the sneakers he needs. He said that he's looking for Asics TQ810 size 14. He said that he has to get this sneaker, his life depends on it. He said he wouldn't be able to get down the steps if he were stuck in the World Trade Center.
Howard said they had Courtney Love on the show yesterday and they got a lot of hate mail about her. He said that she had some great stories she told. He said she was claiming that she was involved with Gavin Rossdale when he was with Gwen Stefani and also told the story about the super model, that they hinted might be Kate Moss. Howard said that the newspapers didn't pick up on any of this.
Howard read some mail about Gary and his Techno Beaver thing on Howard TV. Howard read some of the positive feedback they got about that segment from The Bonus Show. Howard said that some of the people were impressed with the segment and the information Gary gave.
Howard read some feedback about Robin's appearance on Wendy Williams. The fans seemed to think that she handled her interview very well. She talked about Gabourey Sidibe on that show and that led to Howard talking about how he finally saw her SNL appearance. He thought she was good on the show. Howard said he isn't the enemy there. He said he was just saying that he doesn't see nay roles for her in Hollywood. He said she's obese and no one is giving obese women roles. Robin said they don't make Precious every day.
Howard read some mail about Sal talking about Robin and how wrong he is about her 9/11 comments. Howard read some of that feedback.
Howard read some mail from someone who agrees with Sal about Robin. Howard played some audio from the Wrap Up Show where Sal was going off on Robin about that 9/11 thing. Sal was comparing Robin's wacky thoughts to someone deciding to start swimming after hurricane Katrina.
After hearing Sal talk Howard wasn't sure he should have picked him in the IQ test challenge. Sal said the word absurd and said it ''ab-zurd.'' Robin said he is a funny man.
Howard read the note from the fan who was saying that Robin never said that it was 9/11 that inspired her until just recently. The guy pointed out that Robin had said that it was another thing that had gotten her on the diet. Robin said she can produce other people who know about the 9/11 story. She said she told other people about that before she talked about it on the air.
Howard read some mail about Robin giving shout outs on the show. Someone wrote in and said that has to stop. Robin said she doesn't usually do that and it was a guy who helped her out and his son had just gotten back from Iraq.
Howard read some mail about Robin's new theme music and how some people love that. Howard said another guy wrote in and asked about the Little Lupe game they played where they had a question about an Octagon. The writer thought that they were all saying that it has six sides. Howard said that they knew it was 8 but Lupe and the caller bought thought it was six. The caller was right because he guessed that Lupe would get it wrong.
Howard read some mail about Courtney Love's appearance on the show. There were people who thought she shouldn't have been allowed to show up so late. Howard read a bunch of emails like that. A lot of people didn't care about her being on the show and they told him not to have her on again.
Howard thought Courtney was good. He said he heard that Billy Corgan tweeted about it after hearing about the show. He said that Billy was incensed about her. Howard read some of those tweets and he was going off on Courtney about her daughter and her lack of responsibility. Billy was also going off on her about having someone else writing her songs for her.
Howard said it seems like he's accusing her of stealing his songs. Gary said that the rumor is that she didn't write the songs on her first album, Kurt did. Howard said Billy must have heard that stuff and he's a big fan of his. He said he must have heard the show and he must have been reacting to all of that.
Howard said that maybe he'll bring Tracey in and get this all out. He asked Tracey to come in to talk about her show. He said he thinks she did a good show. He said it may not be healthy for the office environment though.
Howard asked Tracey if it's awkward for her today. Tracey said she was up a lot last night because she was upset. Howard said that's the show though. She gets the poison out, so to speak. Howard said it must cause some odd feelings the next day though. Tracey said it does.
Gary said that he was upset by it. Tracey said anyone would be. She said that she and Gary did talk about the refrigerator and Gary just doesn't remember. She said that it's not what Gary says, it's the way he says it. She said that he treats her differently than everyone else there. Gary said Tracey seems to feel wronged by the whole world and not just him. She said that's not true.
Gary said that Tracey does a great job but people are afraid of her. He said it's probably not a healthy way to run the office. He said she's very good at what she does though. Tracey said she's not sure who said that to him but she hangs out with people from the office and she gets to know people like that.
Tracey said the only person she isn't speaking to is Benjy. Gary said that he's not the only person she's stopped talking to.
Howard asked if it's worth continuing this show if she's in this position of being the office manager and doing this radio show.
Tracey said she thinks that Gary doesn't listen to her and she can't talk about this stuff off the air. Gary asked if he stops by her office once a week to ask her what she's up to. She said it's not weekly. He said that Gary has stopped by like 3 times.
Howard said that Gary was telling them about the ski house and how small it was. He said that the reason he didn't invite her is because it's so small. Howard said he gets that. Tracey said the way things go with Gary in the office it's all a secret and they all find out about it at the last minute. Tracey said that it's always the people on the outside who find out later. Gary said that Tracey has this complex where she thinks the world is out to get her. He said he's not making it a secret. He said he doesn't tell people not to tell Tracey if he's having a party.
Gary said that it is Tracey and it's not him. Tracey said she's had conversations with other people who feel the way she does. Gary said that there is no in between with her and you're either with her or against her.
Howard said he loves the radio but maybe for work it's not so good. Gary said that she's already fucked over her boss and it won't be as bad as this if she does another show.
Tracey said she was told by Tim that she had to be angrier. She said that if she's going to get fucked the next day then it's not worth it. She said that she's doing what she was asked and now she's the asshole. Gary said no one is making her do anything. He said that if she doesn't want to do the show then she shouldn't do it. Tracey said it's not fun.
Gary asked Tracey what she thought would be fun for him last night. Tracey said that she spoke to Scott off the air about their problems. Gary said that he didn't think she was fair to him on the show last night. He said he has explanations for the stuff that she was going off on him about.
Howard told Tracey that Gary has to use the guys in the office to tell her stuff sometimes. Tracey said he understands that. Gary said he doesn't think she does because she was going off on him last night about it. Tracey said that she'll ask about a meeting being canceled and no one told her about it. She said that Gary needs to tell her that stuff himself. Gary said that she's more upset about who is telling her about it. Gary said she must feel that she's being addressed by underlings. Tracey said that's not it and Gary should be telling her about that.
Howard said that the show was a home run. He said it's up to her if she wants to do it anymore. Gary said he thinks that she has a part two of him to go off on. Tracey said she's done with Gary. Howard said everyone loves the show. Tracey said she just gave up smoking so she can't deal with this shit.
Howard said when he quit smoking he had just broken his ankle so that had him laid up. He said there was nothing worse than sitting down and doing nothing without a smoke.
Howard said the shocking thing is that Tracey wants to hang out with Gary. Tracey said Gary is interesting to talk to. She said she does enjoy his company but if it's a struggle to get it, it's not worth the struggle.
Tracey said that she used to work for a guy who was like family to her. She said that she doesn't have that there and she feels bad about that. She said she'd like to have someone she can go to like she used to have.
Howard asked Tracey if she's going to keep doing the show. Tracey said she thinks she's done with the people back there in the office. Howard asked Gary if he's going to get past this. Gary said they'll work through it. He said he's very hurt by this whole thing. He said it's like an open wound right now.
Howard said he gets blamed for a lot of stuff on the air that he doesn't even know he said. Tracey said that's what it was like for her. She said she was wondering if she had said some stuff or just thought about it.
Gary said he read that email last night about how he was an elitist, homophobic, racist and he didn't know what Tracey had said about him. He said he was up at 10:45 looking to see if there was more insight into that. He couldn't sleep because of that.
Gary and Tracey said that they think that they'll work things out eventually. Gary said it may depend on if Howard signs on for more time there. If Howard doesn't re-sign then they may just leave it the way it is. Howard said he still has 8 months there and he's not sure if he's going to re-sign. Howard said it's like a whole year left and he doesn't even have any offers on the table. Gary wondered if Howard would be upset if they started finding jobs in September. Howard said he wouldn't mind that. He said he can't answer the question right now. Howard said even he doesn't know what he wants to do. Howard said he doesn't know what to do. He said it's really not up to him.
Tracey said that Howard is damned if he does and damned if he doesn't. Howard said maybe he should announce that he's leaving, but he doesn't know if he is. Gary said there are very talented people who have had a hard time finding jobs. He said they had a guy there who was out of work for 18 months when he left. Howard said he's not sure what he's supposed to do. Robin laughed at him for saying that. Howard said he can't say he's going to have a job there in 8 months. Robin said it is up to him and he has to stop this now. Howard asked who he's supposed to sign with.
Gary asked if there are any talks going on. Howard said there are no talks. Howard said they did offer to talk to him. He said he's not talking. Howard said he doesn't know what to do. It's very complicated. Howard said he knows what he wants to do. He wants to stick his head in an oven.
Gary thinks that Howard wants to stay but on his own terms. Howard said that is simple yet very complicated. He asked Gary why he wasn't invited to the ski house. Gary asked Howard why he isn't talking to someone if he knows what he wants. Robin said that he should be talking. Howard said there are other situations involved now. He said it's not that simple and they have a lot to sort out.
Howard said he respects that people are annoyed. He said that he could be out of the business or he could be doing something exciting and new with all of them involved. Howard said he doesn't know... He just doesn't know.
Gary said his wife just recently said that they should have Tracey, Richard and Sal up to the house. He said he may have to put that off for a couple of weeks. Howard said he's been there and it's fine. Fred said he's been there twice and it's very nice. Gary said one of those times was when they went to visit Artie. Howard told Tracey that she missed out on two trips to Gary's house. Howard told Tracey that she should stay out of Gary's life. It sounds better on paper.
Howard said that Tracey did a good job last night. Gary said that he feels like she's kind of like Pat Cooper who lets out everything. He said some people think she's going to die of a heart attack. He said he thinks that she's going to be like Pat and live forever because they don't hold anything in.
Benjy asked why Tracey still has issues with him. Tracey doesn't want to talk to him and she refused to go out to lunch with him to talk it out. Benjy said she seems so angry at him and he wants to know what the problem is. Tracey asked if she's supposed to do cartwheels down the hallway for him. Gary said Benjy was barking at her on the Wrap Up Show. Benjy said that Tracey was bashing someone he was dating at the time when he was barking at her.
Howard said that this show might be too much. He said that it's a great show though. Howard said he thinks that they should give the show a rest. It's too hard and too crazy. Gary said they'll work things out. Howard said Gary should have her to the house. That led to them talking about the ski house again. Gary said Jason had a good time up there even though he didn't ski. He said he had the best time up there even without skiing.
Howard thanked Tracey and Gary for coming in. Tracey said she was done talking about this and she won't be on the Wrap Up Show talking about it again.
Howard thought that he did a good job moderating with them. Robin said he didn't do anything and they're still in the same position they were in. Howard said he had more to talk about but he has to take a break.
Howard said they never know until the last minute what they're going to be doing. He said he knows he won't be signing on to do another 5 years. He said that's enough of that. Robin said Mel says he needs to know so he can plan. Howard said Mel wants a 20 year contract. He said he's complimented but the long contracts aren't fun to count down. He said he wants to do other things like the one man Ted Kennedy Broadway show. That led to him doing his Kennedy impression and saying that he was going to do a 2 hour long one man show.
Gary came back in and said that the Howard TV camera guy asked them if the wanted to hug it out. He said they both said no and went their separate ways.
Howard took a call from a guy who was asking about the invitation thing and how people get hurt. Howard said that happens all the time. He said they can't invite everyone to everything and people are going to get hurt.
The caller said he's seen some of the behind the scenes stuff that goes on up there and he's not sure how Gary controls it. Howard said he does have a tough job.
The guys talked about how tough it can be to work with people. Gary said he thinks that he has a better relationship with Tracey than he does with JD. He said JD doesn't seem to care as much though.
Another caller said he thinks that Beth is pregnant and this is why he's saying he's not sure if he's coming back. Howard said he wants to be a stay at home dad now. Howard said if Beth gets pregnant then he's going to sign on for another 25 years. He wouldn't want to be home if he had a kid there. Howard said that's hard work.
Howard took a call from a guy who said he wants to know why Gary thinks he's so great. He said that he built his career off of sucking Howard's ass and now he's stomping on Tracey. He said he comes off like he's a know it all and he's really not. The caller thinks he has to be taken down a few notches.
Another caller said Tracey is the poison there in the office. He said she's the one that has to get out. He said that Gary is the nice guy there and it's no wonder that Benjy was barking at her. He said she's the poison and if she wasn't there then the whole office element would be better. He said every office has someone like her there. Howard jokingly said that was Lucas Dell'Abate calling in.
Bobo asked if Tracey has any true friends or are they all afraid to say anything to her. Bobo said he's frightened of her and he's just on the phone. Bobo said most people would fly off the handle with her but not Gary.
Jason came in and said that she lists herself as a matchmaker on the web site too. Howard wondered who she has matched. He said he has to talk to her but he has to take a break first. Howard said he has to pay more attention to his staff.
Howard read about Lisa G doing the matchmaking thing and said he thinks that she'll go on a TV show and be the guest matchmaker. he said he's not even sure if that's what it is. Robin said that this must be a new expertise for her. Howard said he'll talk to her after the break. He told Lisa to stick around.
Howard said he can't wait so he asked her what an entertainment matchmaker is. Lisa said she used to match up clients with companies in a PR marketing thing. Howard tried to figure that out. Lisa had to explain it all to him. She said she would match up people with TV shows and things like that. She was like a publicist and a marketer.
,Howard asked Lisa if she's really an ''entertainment powerhouse.'' Lisa said she is. She said she knows that it's crazy to say that but she's just saying it with a smile. Howard said the site also says that if you take pictures from her web site they'll be sent to jail.
Howard said the caller said he had seen her pictures on SFN and they had been Photoshopped. Lisa said that they will take them to court then. She said that but it sounded like she was joking around. Howard asked if it's actionable to make fun of her in pictures like that. Lisa said she has a team standing by to take care of those people.
Howard asked Lisa if she's on Team Gary or Team Tracey. Lisa said she likes the way Gary speaks to you if he has a problem. Howard said that Tracey won't do stories with Lisa anymore. She said she heard that. Lisa said she's still not sure why. Howard asked if she'll sue over that. Lisa said she will.
Howard asked Lisa if she's suing another Lisa G for using her name. Lisa said she is not. She said that she would if someone was in her line of business and was using that name. Howard asked her if she would sue if someone was on radio and used the name Lisa Gee. She said she would sue. Howard asked if she would sue over Lisa C. She said she doesn't know.
Howard said there are Lisa G things out there that she's not suing over. He said he likes that she's willing to prosecute if they steal her pictures. Howard asked Lisa to come back in. He wanted to find out of she would sue the Lisa G skinny jeans people. Lisa said no. She's not suing over the Lisa G photography or any of these other things that Howard was bringing up. Lisa said she knows about these places and she's not suing. Howard said there is a Lisa G who is in voice overs. Lisa said she's not working in radio.
Lisa said she hasn't had to sue anyone but there was another Lisa G who was going to be hired out in Long Island and it didn't happen. Howard said he had to go to break a short time later.
Howard came back and said that Mariah Carey is up to 192 pounds according to an article he was reading. Howard said she looks really big. He said maybe that marriage isn't working out so well.
Howard said he was shocked when he saw Jenna Jameson was beat up by her husband Tito Ortiz. Howard said he hoped that she was going to find some happiness with him. Howard said it looks like it's not working out so well. Howard said she's got twins with the guy.
Howard said it's hard enough to be an actress when you're in shape and that's the point he was making about Gabby Sidibe. He said that the chick who starred opposite John Travolta in Saturday Night Fever. Gary said that chick sold him his first cartoon cell in the late 80s.
Howard said on Saturday night Beth told him that the movie with Al Pacino playing Jack Kervorkian was on. He said 8 o'clock rolled around and he told Beth he didn't want to watch that on a Saturday night. He wanted to have fun. Howard said he's glad Al found a role like that but he didn't want to be bummed out watching that movie. Howard said he doesn't like that topic and he was going to force himself to watch it. He said he decided not to.
Howard said he doesn't want to watch a movie about Jack Kervorkian. He said he likes Jack and what he does but he's not going to watch that movie. He said he doesn't have to watch it and he's not going to watch it. He said he'd rather watch Al Pacino playing himself in a movie instead.
Howard said Al looked like Al with big glasses on. Howard said he still sounds like Al Pacino. Howard said they were talking to Al on 60 Minutes about that ''Hu-ahhh'' thing he does in one movie. They explained where he got that from and it was from the military. Al used it in the movie because he liked the sound of it.
Howard said he did tune into the Jack Kervorkian movie for a few minutes out of guilt but he didn't see the whole thing. He said he doesn't have to see the whole thing. He never watched Sophie's Choice either. Howard said he doesn't want to see a woman choose which kid to keep from the Nazis. Howard said he thinks that his mother would have kept him. His father probably would have kept his sister. Howard said his father may have just thrown him in the oven either way. Howard did a little bit of an impression of his parents making that choice. He said that his mother wouldn't have been able to make the choice.
Howard said he tuned right out of that Kervorkian movie. He said Ralph sent him a reminder that the movie was on. He said it was called ''You Don't Know Jack'' and that's a weird title for a movie about a guy like that.
Howard said Ralph told him about the movie and said that Al Pacino was great in it. Howard said he told Ralph that he didn't want to watch it because it was boring. Ralph wrote back and said that he didn't want to watch it either. He was glad he wrote that to him. He said you watch that movie and it makes you want to die. Howard said he doesn't think anyone watched that movie.
Howard wanted to talk about who is going to take the IQ test. Scott DePace, Sal, Richard, Jason, Fred and maybe JD were on the list. Howard said he wants JD on the list. Gary said he thought he might want him on there too. Howard said he thinks that Gary would beat a lot of them. Fred said he thinks that Gary would beat DePace. Howard said he would pick Scott over Gary.
Fred said he thinks that Howard is fooled by Scott's testosterone. Scott said he thinks that Gary is slightly below average. Gary said he's not sure he has 4 hours to spare.
Howard said he's got a lot of money riding on this contest already. Howard said he's not sure he wants to pick Sal after hearing him on the Wrap Up Show. He said that he can't even say the word ''absurd'' the right way. Howard said he still doesn't know why he feels that Sal is smarter than Richard.
The guys were trying to figure out how smart Sal would have to be to be a stockbroker. Robin said that he didn't have to be that good because he's out of the business now. Howard said Richard can play the drums and he knows music. Howard said Tommy Lee can play the drums too though.
Howard said he's losing faith in his 500 on Sal. Sal came in and said that Richard has an excentric way of thinking and he thinks he'll do very well on the test. Howard said Sal gives up on stuff very easy. Sal said he usually gets thrown out of the studio before he can figure stuff out.
Sal said he passed the Series 7 exam and they say it's one of the hardest to pass. He said he studied for 90 days and he got an 89 on it. Sal said he took the Series 34 and got an 85 on that. Gary said he thinks Sal is like Beetljuice, ''he knows what he knows.''
Gary said that there is a theory that Sal paid someone to take his test. Sal said that's not true. Gary also pointed out that Sal worked at a shady place for a while. Sal said he did but he got out of there when he realized what was going on there.
Fred told Howard that Sal is fooling him because he probably just studied for the test and managed to pass it. That has nothing to do with IQ. Howard said he took a test like that to get into radio and he really doesn't know anything.
Robin was wondering if they should test other people. Sal was suggesting Tracey vs. Gary. Howard said he wants to let that settle down. He doesn't need that right now.
Robin said she's willing to bet that JD is smarter than all of them. She said that he's definitely smarter than DePace. Scott asked her what the hell that was about. Robin said she'll put 500 on that one. Scott said he wants Robin in the test. Robin said she's not taking any test. Robin said she's going to bet that JD will beat Scott DePace. Howard took that bet. Gary said he understands why Scott is insulted by that.
Howard said he has one. Gary the Retard vs. Wendy the Retard. Howard said he would take Wendy in a second. Gary said he might take Gary. Ralph wanted to play against Gary. Gary said there are no points for arrogance.
Ralph asked Howard why he thinks Jason can beat DePace. Howard said he just has that feeling. The guys were all taking Gary up against Ralph. Ralph said he likes that. He said he would bet Gary on that. Ralph wasn't sure he wanted to bet that kind of money. Gary wanted to play for an iPad. Howard didn't know that was more than 500 bucks. Ralph wasn't sure he wanted to bet 500 on this test. Gary said he wants the money in escrow.
Howard threw out a couple of others like Lisa G vs. Steve Langford and JD vs. Ronnie. Howard asked Ronnie to come in there. JD came in and said that he looked at some sample questions and he thinks he can do okay. JD wasn't sure if he could win. Ronnie said he's not up for this and he didn't want to get involved. Howard told Ronnie to come in there and talk to him. Ronnie said that he wants to be left alone. He said he didn't want to get into this. He said he's not doing the psychological test. Howard said he'd fail, that's why he's not taking that.
Howard said he probably wouldn't want Ronnie there anymore if he saw the results of that test. Ronnie said Howard is an angry person too.
JD said that he tried to pat Ronnie on the shoulder and he threw something at him. Ronnie said he doesn't like being touched. Howard said he will take the psychological test if Ronnie takes it. He said he'll beat Ronnie. Ronnie said he doesn't care, he's not taking it.
Ronnie claims that he has an IQ of 128. Ralph said no way. Howard said he is smart when it comes to driving. Ronnie said he's driven with Ronnie and he takes the worst routes. Ralph said he wants to take him on in the IQ test. He knows he could beat him.
Howard said he and Ronnie should take the psych exam against Ronnie. Howard said he thinks that Robin will flunk it too. Howard said Ronnie will be the craziest and Robin will be the second most crazy. Howard said he'll come out with flying colors. Howard said all three should take it.
Howard said he's thinking that he might come out the worst now. Robin said that maybe all of them won't be allowed to leave the office after the test. Ralph said Howard functions well with his craziness. Howard said he thinks Ronnie is the craziest but he might be wrong. Fred played a bunch of audio clips of Ronnie yelling at people on various shows while that was going on.
Howard told Ronnie there's no way he's 128 because that's genius level. Gary gave a question where he gave some numbers and asked what the next number was. It was 8, 4, 2, 1, 1/2, 1/4... Sal knew the answer. Ralph knew it but he was writing it down when Sal answered
Ronnie said he's not a genius but he does have a high IQ. Howard told Gary to give them another question. Gary had one which was about a train traveling 20 feet in 1/5 of a second, how many feet will it travel in 3 seconds? Fred got it right first with 300 feet. Howard didn't get it at all. He and Ronnie didn't get it and neither did Robin.
Howard said that the other guys will take the IQ test and he, Robin and Ronnie will take the psychological test. Howard asked Ronnie if he wanted to bet him on that. Ronnie said he would do the $500 on that.
Howard said he thinks Ronnie is crazy. Ronnie thinks that both Howard and Robin are crazy. Ralph said he thinks that Ronnie is just angry, he's not crazy. Ronnie said he doesn't throw his phone on the floor in the morning like other people do. Ronnie said he will take this bet with Howard because he knows what goes on in the back of that limo.
Howard was betting Robin that he would beat her in the psych test. Sal said he will shave his head if Robin isn't more insane than Howard and Ronnie. Howard said he wants a professional to give this test. Howard said the guy standing behind Gary is even more mental than all of them. That was Ross Zapin.
Howard said he still thinks he's way more sane than Robin is. Robin said they should have odds on this betting. Howard said Robin was really nuts in the past but she's a little better now. Robin said that Howard is still nuts. He's still going to therapy 3 days a week. Howard said Ronnie is kookier than anyone on the planet. He thinks that he'll get locked up after his test. Howard said he thinks Ronnie is the nuttiest out of everyone there.
Howard and Robin were still settling on bets. Ralph said that both of them are pretty wacky. He said that Robin used to scream and yell at people at work. Robin said she had anger issues. She said that she'll bet Howard $1000 that he's more insane than her. Howard said they'll take more bets when they get closer to the testing time. He said he had to take a break after that.

He said that the women are dressing the way actresses should be. He said that the girls in porn are really good looking these days too.

Then he got a role playing a pedophile and it got him back into acting. Gary said that role turned his career around. Howard read he was out of movies from 1993 to 2006 or something like that.

It's that show about Midgets that they named themselves after. Robin asked if he could go out and have a good time hanging out.

She said they're all underprivileged kids. Robin started to get on her soap box to talk about what the charity is about. Fred played her new theme song as she was doing that. She didn't even seem to notice it was playing. Howard said it would be great if the kids came back and made a hard core porno movie.

Gary started off with the ass kicking he took from Tracey. Gary said he thinks that the worst part of it was how he felt blind sided by the whole thing. He said you never know if you're safe or not with her. Gary said that he didn't know that a lot of that stuff was going to come up last night.
Jon said that Tracey didn't do anything wrong, she was doing what she was supposed to do. Gary said he told Howard that he has created a monster with the premise of that show. Gary said he thinks that she should have confronted him about that stuff off the air. He said he wasn't really hurt but he was taken aback by the whole thing. He said that maybe he was hurt a little bit.
Gary said he didn't want to come in this morning and get ugly. He just wanted to respond to Tracey's comments after Howard played the clips. JD was laughing so Gary asked what was so funny. JD said he was just laughing at some little things.
JD was on the Tracey show last night kind of egging her on. JD said she kind of knew what she was doing and he knew it. JD said it was her show and he's just there to do whatever.
Jon asked Gary about the boys club that Tracey was talking about. Gary said they had a similar thing with Scott the Engineer because he was forgotten a lot when they'd plan stuff. He said that they'd put together a list of stuff and they'd always forget about Scott. He said that was when he was down the hall. That doesn't happen so much now that Scott is right across from him.
JD said he thinks that Scott is more social than he was at K-Rock too. Gary said that Scott has Ronnie sitting in there and Lisa G sits in there waiting to come in. Gary said that some of the guests that come in hang out over there too so it is kind of a destination for people. JD said that Scott has decorations hanging in there now too. He said he didn't have that at K-Rock.
Jon asked Gary if he thinks that Tracey would be closer if she was in an office near him. Gary said that could be possible. He said there is a bond between the people who are right there in the trenches. He said that's just what the show is.
Jon asked Scott if he feels he's no longer ignored because of where his office is. Scott said he's ignored less. He said that he gets a lot more attention now that his office is where it is. Scott said he used to have to run to the studio from his office and it was tough to do that. He said he was friendly with the people who smoked because they were in his office to smoke.
Jon asked Scott if he and Tracey are getting along better now. Scott said that they have worked it out. He said he went to her and said he had to work things out with her so they worked it out.
Jon took a call from a guy who said that it seems Tracey is very bitter about her position there. He said that she's going off on Scott and Gary and maybe she should be more than an intern wrangler. Gary said she is a lot more than that.
Gary said the person they had in the position before would get resentful that they weren't getting free stuff like the people on the show would. Gary said he doesn't hear resentment from Tracey about that. He thinks that she just wants to be part of the gang.
Another caller said that Gary lets women around him treat him like shit. He said he should have come in and called her a stupid, fat, bitch. He said that if anyone else said the things that she said, he would have went off on them. He told the guys to have a good day and said Michigan sucks. Jon wondered why he was getting shrapnel today.
Gary said he may have gone to a more vicious place if it was a guy but he didn't want to go there. He said he didn't feel that way.
Jon asked if they should keep the show on. Gary said they should because he's been hit already. JD said he would like it better if the show was on a Monday when he didn't have to work the next morning. JD said he thinks the show should stay on because it's funny. He said he tries to stay out of her way and not upset her so he's not too worried about getting her mad at him.
Jon took a call from a guy who asked how much this affects him. Gary said he doesn't like it when people he works with don't like him so it's kind of tough. He said that he can't just come out and call her the C-word. Benjy didn't know that the word was that bad. He said he might have to try calling a woman that today.
Jon took another call from a woman who said that Tracey wouldn't have a show if she wasn't good at calling someone a douche. She said that Gary handled it very well and Tracey was just coming up with petty things. The caller said she thinks that Tracey is a cunt.
Jon said that if Tracey wasn't good at her job she wouldn't be there though. Gary said she is good at what she does.
Gary said he owes Benjy an apology. He said that Benjy said that everyone was afraid of Tracey and he said he wasn't but now he admits he was afraid of her. Gary said Tracey has more energy to fight a fight than he does. He said that he doesn't want to get into a war so if that makes him afraid then he's afraid.
JD said he was going to answer the earlier question again about the show staying on. JD said he doesn't like the office stuff being discussed. He said he'd rather have Tracey yelling at other things that don't have to do with the people in the office.
Benjy said he's in a one bedroom apartment and he peed in a cup so he wouldn't miss anything on that show last night. Gary said no one gave him the heads up about the show before it happened. He said no one told him after the show either. He said they all treated him like a leper.
Scott said he had a head's up before he got bashed by her on the show. He said it's much better when you don't get mad. He said it's much easier to just let it go. He said he's getting tired of doing that and being miserable. Gary said Scott has made a life change and he's really done it. He said he was so angry for so many years and now he's not. Scott really did it.
Scott said that he thinks Howard might be ready to retire. Gary said he doesn't think he wants to retire but he doesn't ''need'' to work. Gary said if he had to guess, he would say that Howard wants to do a 3 year deal or something like that. He doesn't want the 5 years but they may want him to commit to 5. Gary said he's heard that maybe they'd get summers off like a TV show would do. Gary said some people might get mad at that but they would still have Howard.
Gary said he was thinking that maybe they'd start the show later or something like that. He said that they could start the show at 7 and maybe even get better guests later in the morning. He said that might work out well for them. He said he thinks that Howard gets that he has to do mornings but it doesn't have to be 6 in the morning.
Jon took a call from a guy who asked how much they think Tracey would have gone off on him if Howard really was retiring. Jon said he thinks that she's going to say the same thing no matter what. Gary said if Howard does announce he's retiring then by December 1st it's going to be ''fuck you'' day and everyone will be going off on everyone else. Jon asked if it's awkward in the office now with Tracey. Gary said that it is kind of weird today.
Jon took a call from the guy who wrote the letter that freaked Gary out last night. He said that he wrote that Gary was a racist and a bigot but not the other stuff Gary said this morning. Gary said that it could be a different letter. Gary said that he doesn't think that he's like that though. The caller said he thinks that Gary does like to judge people and the way he goes about doing it is kind of elitist.
Gary said he might be a bit of an elitist when it comes to New York City. He said he thinks it's the greatest city in the world. He said other people would argue with that.
Ralph called in and made fun of Jon's voice. Ralph went on to say that Gary isn't a racist or an elitist. He also asked Gary if he would like to do a TV project with Howard. Gary said he would love to do that. He said he knows it would be a lot of hours but it would be a lot of fun. He said that it was all brand new when they started there at SIRIUS and he'd love to try that out in TV. Ralph said maybe that's what it would be all about. He said maybe Howard will take some time off or something too. Ralph said he doesn't have any insider info so he's not saying that this is going to happen.
Gary said that they have so many other ways to get radio these days that they don't really have to do it on satellite. Gary said Howard could do any number of those things. Ralph said he could do anything and get the podcasts out there or something like that. Gary said that he could do podcasts or do a streaming show somewhere. He said they have a lot of options.
Ralph said that everyone realizes Howard's value and people would be clamoring for him if he left for 6 months. Benjy asked if they think Howard knows what he wants. Gary said he thinks he does but he's not talking yet. They had to go to break a short time later.
Jon brought up the IQ test discussion they had today. Gary said they have to find the right people to administer the test. He said they have to figure out the crazy test too.
Gary talked about how much confidence DePace has and how he seems to think he'll do better than Jason and him. He said he thinks that Scott will do better than JD and Ralph but not better than him or Jason. Gary said no one has really seen Ralph in a daily setting and he'd admit that he's ADD so he may not be able to follow the questions. Gary said he's not sure how Ralph will do.
Jon took a call from a guy who said that Ronnie claiming that he has an advanced IQ shows that the tests don't work or that he's lying. He said he called last week about Ronnie and he wanted to make it all about him. The caller said that he knows he wouldn't do well on an IQ test but he's done fine in life. Benjy said he could be wrong about Ronnie though. The guy said that Ronnie was going off on him saying he didn't get the show and all Ronnie could do was deflect and not respond.
Gary wondered if the IQ test is really that important. Jon said that any standardized test is just a test to see how well you do on a standardized test. Ronnie came in and interrupted and went off on the caller and walked right back out. Ronnie said he had no time for this guy.
The caller said that Ronnie doesn't seem to have any control over his life and he's unable to stay focused on his life. Gary said he gets it, he doesn't like Ronnie. He had to hang up on the guy.
Jon and Gary talked more about the IQ tests. Jon said that he knows what the tests are like and he thinks that they'll be at a disadvantage if they don't know what's coming. Jon explained what he's seen and how they'd have to prepare.
Another caller said he hates DePace and he thinks he's going to do really poorly on the test. Scott was in and said that he doesn't even know him but he's judging how intelligent he was. The caller said that Scott is an idiot. He said he thinks that Ronnie will be lowest, Ralph will be next and Scott will be after that.
The caller said he knows that Scott won't come out on top of any test they take. Scott said he thinks that he will and maybe the test between him and Jason will be close.
Jon took a call from a guy who asked why Robin won't take the test. Gary didn't know they asked her. Scott said Robin told him she doesn't remember how to do math anymore so that's why she's not going to take it. Jon asked Scott who he thinks would come in first and second if they all took the test. Scott said he thins Howard and Fred would be near the top. Howard might come out right at the top.
Jon asked who he thinks would be at the lowest. Scott said maybe Sal and Richard. He said maybe Ronnie and Sal would be down there at the bottom.
The guys talked about how they think that Richard is much smarter than they think. He might be playing dumb. Jon took a call from a guy who said that he thinks that Richard is much smarter and he's just acting on the show. He said that Benjy might come out on the bottom of the IQ test. He said he is a genius because he is on the show as a writer. He said he would love to know what he's writing.
Jon said he thinks that Benjy would do well on an IQ test. The caller said he would love to see that. The caller said that he wants to take it and prove to this guy that he's smarter than him. He said that he would even do general knowledge against him. Gary came up with some questions to ask.
Gary looked up some questions but Jon got bored by it and said goodbye to the caller. He said that guy lied to the screener and he doesn't like that.
Jon took another call from a guy who said that he thinks they should do an IQ test with JD and Pete because he doesn't think JD is all that smart. JD was gone so they couldn't talk to him about that.
Gary asked a question about 10 people shaking hands at the end of a banquet so how many hand shakes are there. Scott DePace had taken the test earlier so he said it was 45. They tried to figure out how they came to that number but they were running out of time. Jon said they didn't even get to Lisa G and her claims that she's an ''Entertainment Powerhouse.'' Gary said he doesn't think that's really true but she might be trying to create a new image for herself. They had to end the show a short time later.
Howard started the show talking about listening to Bubba the Love Sponge yesterday. He said he was listening to Ferrall last night too. He said he has no idea what he's talking about but he is entertaining.
Howard noticed that Robin had on some false eyelashes. Robin said they were from last night. She said she needs time to take them off. Howard said they look good and she might have a husband if she keeps wearing them. Howard said he noticed them right away. He said they're not on wrong either. He said she has done that before.
Howard said Robin had them on one time and they looked like they were falling off. Robin said she was still learning. Howard wondered why they don't have a stick on penis extension. Robin said they tend to just make women up like that.
Howard said Robin had her big night last night. Robin said it was nerve wracking. Howard said he could play some of her audio but it was too normal. Howard said there were some people saying she was doing a lot of ''I, I, Me, Me'' though.
Howard said he heard that the movies the kids in that charity are making cost $200,000. Robin said that they are real films so they do cost a lot of money. Howard said Gary went and he met five black kids. Robin said they weren't all black. Robin said Gary must be racist. Gary said that he'll send her the picture. Gary said that one of them was actually Latino.
Gary told Howard about what the kids were telling him about their movies and they were all pretty depressing. Robin said they're writing movies about their life experiences. Howard said that's good for them.
Howard said he heard that Robin was introduced and some guy did some poetry. Howard said his agent went over to that guy and gave him his card. Howard said Don doesn't do that very often. Robin said he immediately pulled out his card. Howard said Don is pretty discerning.
Robin said that Howard must have given a hefty contribution because he was up there with the big corporations. Robin said that they were very happy about that and someone from the charity called her as soon as she got the check. Robin said she doesn't know how much the donation was though.
Robin said that one of the kids there hadn't ever left her part of the city before this. Robin said that she was there to introduce there and she was a lovely young lady.
Howard said he had a good time when he was away at camp. He said he was away from home so it was a great time. Six weeks away from home was amazing. Howard said his mother used to threaten him when he did something wrong that he wouldn't be able to go to Camp Welmet. He lived for that six weeks every summer.
Howard said he met some guys at camp and Howie and Kenny were two of them. Howard said they were good guys. Lou told him they were getting together for dinner so he went. They went to the Gramercy Tavern. He said he got there at 10 and he was there until 6. Howard said he got there early and sat in his car waiting to go in. he said they were already there and he didn't know it. He likes that they were on time.
Howard said his three buddies were there and Howie looked different. He said that he's looking different but not in a bad way. Howard said Kenny doesn't have his hair anymore but he knew him from a picture. He said he's just missing his hair. Howard said he looked good and the guys were in reasonable shape. He said they weren't fat or anything. Howard said one of them is single and he could set Robin up with him.
Howard said that some of the guys are married and were talking about the kids and all of that. Howard said Howie thought he was going to have kids with his wife. He said nothing about having kids sounded appealing to him though.
Howard said Kenny had a list of names of the people they went to camp with and they had a fun time talking about those people. Howard said he had a great time hanging out with those guys. He said he was really in a good mood. He said he didn't think he was going to have a good time but he was late getting home. He said he got home just in time to see American Idol.
Howard said the guy is just a douche. He said that's what Beth thinks of him too. He said the guy is good looking but he's a douche. He said he heard some hosts on Stars 102 talking about the guy being a ''goober'' and that's what he thinks the guy is. He said he seems to just want to be famous.
Howard played the audio of Jake the Bachelor crying on Dancing with the Stars last night. In the clip he was talking about what a good time he had on the show and then started crying about it.
Howard wondered why they cut away so quickly. Howard said evidentially he's a real douche bag. He said he hasn't seen it yet but he has it taped so he'll watch it later. Howard said he's at his wit's end with that show though. He said the judges are annoying. Howard said people on that show get into relationships too and it's kind of odd. He talked about some of the rumored relationships. He said that one of the judges was yelling because he didn't like a routine that Maxim put together and gave them a six. He said that's not the woman who is dancing's fault. He said the judges don't make sense to him. He said the whole show is getting kind of weird.
Howard said one of the dance instructors seemed kind of nice at first but now he's acting like a shit head. Howard said all of the instructor guys seem like shit heads. Robin said they are, they're guys who dance. Howard said that Erin Andrews relationship isn't going to last long. He said the whole thing is making him nuts.
Howard said he had a new Tradio call to play. He said it's 6 minutes long and there's no fat there to cut. He then played some of the audio from Robin's honoring. He had a clip of a woman talking about Robin and what she's done for other charities and how she had been on Celebrity Jeopardy. The woman talked about what a role model Robin is and how great she is.
Howard said he's not sure what to make of this new Robin. He said it started out small but now she's into coffee enemas and a health freak and she's way into the charity thing. Howard said he heard that they had filet mignon at the event last night. Robin said she had Tofu. Ralph was there telling her that the Tofu is too processed and she was arguing that his food is raised in a way that the animal doesn't get to move and they were arguing about that.
Howard heard the guys were talking about Tim Sabean's weight gain. Robin said that was at another table. Howard asked if Robin invited Tracey to the event. Robin said she didn't invite anyone. She sent out some notes about the event and some people bought tables and invited people.
Gary said that he saw Langford there interviewing people about whether or not he was a bad boss and things like that.
Howard said the fun game was guessing Tim's weight gain. Gary said Tim said he lost 60 but gained back 17 but they thought that he actually lost 40 and gained back 25.
Gary told Howard they were told they were going to have Filet Mignon and Tim said he was a vegetarian and he had the Tofu. Gary said that Tim took two bites of it and that was it. He said they know that he loves meat and he had to have gone out to eat after the event. Howard said he must have been having a hard time at the event. Gary said he's not sure if he was but he didn't clear his plate of Tofu.
Howard said Tim has an account at Del Frescos in their building. That's a steak house. He said he drinks too. Howard said he heard that Benjy was eating everyone's vegetables from their plates. Robin said Benjy is the creepiest human being. She said that he came up to her and thanked her for getting him there. Benjy said she's mean. He said that he didn't say that to her. He said he thanked her for getting them all out to these events. Robin said he says very creepy things and he scared the young girl next to her.
Robin said Benjy is creepy when he leans over to say that stuff. Benjy said she's so exaggerating. He said he just thanked her. That led to Fred doing his impression of Benjy for a minute.
Mike Gange came in and said he had a funny story about Gange. He said they were talking to some really cute chicks at the end of the event. Mike said he had to go to the bathroom and when he came back the girls said they had to run. They were going to share a cab but he left them alone with Benjy for a few minutes and they changed their minds.
Benjy said the chicks were really hot and they work with Jeff Schick. Benjy said he was helping that move along a lot. Gange said he was but once he left them alone he lost them. Benjy said they were waiting for Gange but when he got back they had to go.
Howard asked if the girls were chubby chasers or something. Howard said they blew it and didn't even get numbers. Gange said they were out the door so fast. Benjy said he made up a story to keep them around. Howard wondered if they could score with hot chicks. Benjy said they weren't even trying to score.
Robin asked Gange if he's been dating. He said he has had some dates. He said he didn't like the girls though. He said they weren't his type. Howard said he's like his friend Kenny and Howie who didn't get married until they were in their 40s.
Howard asked Gange if he ever got over that other chick he was dating. Gange said that's complicated and he's not over her yet. That was two years ago.
Howard asked Gange about being sick all the time too. Gange said he has been going to doctors about that. Howard told him he's fat, that's his problem. Gange said he weighs about 250 pounds right now. Howard said he has to get in shape if he's looking for chicks. Gange said part of it is depression. Robin said he's going to have to find another girl to get over the last girl.
Howard asked Gange if he's doing the bike ride this weekend. Gange said he is. He's still on antibiotics though so Howard thinks he's going to get worn down. Howard said it's going to be 80 degrees this weekend so he's going to be sweating like a pig. Howard told him to stay home. He's not in any shape to do 42 miles. Gange said it's not a race so he can go at a leisurely pace. Howard told him to do 20 mils and stop. Gange said he'll stop if he gets worn out.
Howard asked Gange if the old girlfriend is dating. Gange said he's not sure. He said that any communication with that girl screws him up. He said she broke up with him and she needed some space. He said that she was young when they started to date.
Gary asked Gange if it was him asking her to move in that started the end. Gange said that was part of it. He said he wanted to see her more and she wanted space. Howard said she must not have wanted to see him so much. Howard said she was really cute too. Gange said they dated for 6 years so it was almost like a mini divorce.
Gange said he did try to see her once. He said he tried to contact her when he was at a friend's house in her neighborhood. He said he asked her out and she never texted back. He said he knows she's always by the phone though. He said he was on his way home and texted her again and she got back to him in 2 seconds. He said he knows that she was just blowing him off.
Howard and Robin told Gange it's his weight that's causing his health problems. Gange said he doesn't think that's true because there are other people there who weigh as much as he does and they don't get sick. Robin said he can't compare himself to other people.
Howard asked Gange more about the ex-girlfriend and pointed out that he always thinks that he can do better than the girl he's dating and she must have picked up on that. Gange said he didn't want to fully commit for a long time. He said he finally got to the point when he did want to commit and it was too late.
Robin said Gange used to think he could get Tori Spelling. Gange said he still does. Robin said back then he couldn't though. Howard said Gange thought he could get any girl he wanted. Gange said he had more going on back then than he does now. He said he still had hair back then. Gange said he was in long relationships back then too.
Gange told another story about Benjy taking all of their vegetables off their plates at dinner last night. Benjy said they gave him steak when he asked for vegetables so that's why he was doing that.
Gange said that all of the guys from the show were kind of fat and they were all hanging out around the table of food at the event last night.
Jason came in and said that they took a photo with everyone and Benjy's stomach was hanging out of his suit. Benjy said that chicks love that. Howard said that must be why those chicks ran out. Howard said that Jason is wearing a 4X Knicks sweatshirt. He said that all of the guys there wear the same kind of clothes too.
Gange coughed so Howard wondered why he was in there. He kicked him out a second later. Howard said that he's always sick and he missed out on a date with those IBM chicks because of Benjy. Benjy said he introduced them to Gange. Howard said he also lost them.
Sal got through again and said he wishes that those prank callers were in Haiti during the earthquake. Then he said he had a whiffle ball bat for sale with fecal matter on it. The host hung up on him and said that this is a good way to lose the show. The host said that he could go to a network show if this keeps up.
In the call the host, Ray, takes another call from Richard who was saying the boots he had for sale were covered in horse semen. He got hung up on again. Ray then took a break and took another call from a woman who said she had a rooster to give away. Sal got through and asked for the number for the rooster. He told Ray he was Mike Morales and he really could use a good cock. Ray said this was the worst it had been on the show in the 25 years he had been broadcasting.
Howard said it sounds like a tough day at the office for that guy. Howard said he liked the guy saying he likes to have fun but not on radio. Howard said he was also saying he could go to a Network show. Howard wondered what he was talking about there.
Howard told Sal and Richard they did a good job with that call. Benjy said he thinks he knows what the guy was saying about the network show thing. He could get rid of Tradio and just put a syndicated show on. Howard said maybe that's what it was. He said that's some threat. Howard went to break after that.
Howard came back and said that they made a song parody with that song. He said they did that back at NBC. That led to Howard saying that NBC are such hypocrites. He said that when he was there he wasn't allowed to say ''douche bag'' or ''scum bag'' but now they say ''dick'' and ''douche bag'' on their TV shows all the time. Howard said he knows why they picked on him over there. They didn't want him to get famous and they hated that he was the loud mouth Jew. He called them a bunch of fuckers and assholes.
Howard played a clip from NBC's Trauma where a guy was calling another guy a dick and a douche bag. Howard said in 1982 he was saying that stuff on the air and they hated it. Howard said he remembers Tom Chiusano even getting upset that he was using dick and douche bag. He said he can't go back to terrestrial radio. He hates it.
Howard said you can hear it all on NBC now. He said Grant Tinker hated him and he didn't want him saying that stuff. Now they say it all the time. Howard said Grant Tinker was a cock sucker. Robin thought he was dead but Gary said he's not. Howard said Mark Tinker is a good guy and he must hate his father. Gary said he doesn't. Howard said he would hate his father if he was Grant Tinker.
Gary said Mark loves Howard. Howard said his father treated him like a scum bag. Howard said he was trying to get an awful AM station to become something. They had nothing going on there at the time. He said they had Roz Frank doing the traffic reports and he'd have some fun with her and he'd get yelled at about that. Howard said Imus didn't ever do anything with her over there.
Howard said he had some audio of Grant Tinker talking about him on a show with Tom Snyder. Howard played that and went off on Grant for the way he treated him. Howard said Grant is a country club asshole. Robin said that sounds like a new song. Howard said he's going to work on that.
In the clip Snyder was talking to Grant about why they fired Howard Stern. Howard said they fired Tom because of low ratings. That's not why they fired him. Howard played more of the audio of Grant talking about him and went off on him about getting his information wrong and about how Grant said he hadn't even heard Howard before they hired him. Howard said they were a bunch of idiots over there.
Howard played Grant talking about how he knew he could go somewhere else and get a job. Howard said that's bull and they were doing what they could to keep him from working in New York again. Howard said they were willing to pay him 50 grand to move to Los Angeles and do his show out there so he wouldn't be in New York.
Howard played more of the audio and went off on Tom and Grant. Howard said Grant was jealous of him and that's why he fired him. Howard said he actually did him a favor by firing him from that awful place.
Howard said he knows Gary is friends with Mark. He said he's a good guy but his father isn't. Howard said that everyone is a phony. He said as soon as something bad happens they kick him. Howard said his friends are Kenny, Howie and Lou. He said those are his real friends.
Howard asked who Mark Tinker's mom is. Gary said Mary Tyler Moore is his step-mom. Howard said his father probably isn't even Grant Tinker. He said maybe it's someone like Ted Danson. Howard said Grant was so busy banging Mary that maybe his mom had another man and Grant isn't his father.
Howard said he wants Mark Tinker tested so they can find out if his father is really Grant. Gary asked if this is his big reward for being a fan of the show. Howard said that's exactly what it is. He told Gary to have Maurey Povich test him to find out if he's really his father.
Howard asked Gary about Mark and if he still talks to his father. Gary said Mark is still close to his dad. Gary said he talks to Mark quite a bit. Gary said Mark is married for the third time and he's married to a very beautiful girl. Howard said they should just kill him if he gets married a third time. Howard said maybe he'd like to rack up Larry King style numbers. Robin said he's going to have to get busy to catch up if that's what he wants.
Howard said he thinks that his father should have done that for him. He said he heard Gary's story about what his life was like with his mother. He said it's amazing the way he turned out being raised like that. Howard said Gary's dad told him about his mom early on and that must have helped him stay adjusted. Gary said one of the themes of the book is going to be about how he never knew if he was going to be kicked in the teeth or hugged. Howard said it's always about teeth with Gary.
Gary said that his shrink talked to him about that and it's like his mom prepared him very well for working on this show.
Howard asked Gary if his mom is okay with him writing this book. Gary said she is okay with it. He said that he spoke to some of his family about it as well. He said that he doesn't hate his mom and he doesn't blame her for her problems either. Gary said he's not looking to make her look bad. Gary said he doesn't think that what she went through is her fault. Gary said his mom doesn't remember everything that he's going to write about. She's kind of nervous about it but he's not going to trash her.
Howard said Sal was out in the hall dressed like Gary and he was writing his book. He was writing about Solitaire and shit breath among other things.
Lisa asked if he knows the cover yet. Gary said that it's available for pre-order on Amazon.com already. Gary said he has 20,000 words written already and he's got a due date already too. The book is due out November 3. Howard asked if they're going to like the book. Gary said he's writing it with a writer and it should be good. Howard asked if there will be an audio book. Gary said ''absolutely.'' he said he'll probably read it himself.
Howard congratulated Gary on the book and had Lisa G get back to the news preview. Howard heard that she was kind of bummed she wasn't invited to the honoring last night. Robin said that she didn't do any inviting. She said that Tim was the one who invited people from there. Lisa told Robin her eyes were beautiful with the eyelashes. She couldn't stop looking at them. Robin said she just got them from the drug store. They weren't anything special.
Lisa said that they're also looking into the Sporcle game that some of the guys there are playing. Lisa said they found out that everyone is throwing everyone else under the bus about playing the game. Lisa said Jason plays the game but he says Tracey plays just as many games during the day as the rest of them.
Howard asked Jon Hein to ask him a Sporcle question. Gary said it doesn't work like that. Howard asked how it works. Gary said that it's questions like ''Name every Adam Sandler movie'' and you have a time to answer it in. Gary told Howard to name every track on ''Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band'' in 5 minutes. Howard gave it a try and he only got a few of the songs. Howard was getting very frustrated though. He was ready to give up after a couple of minutes. He said he's really bad at trivia.
Howard asked for a new question because he should have been able to name every one of those songs. Robin said she's glad that he didn't know that. She said that would mean he's got too much nonsense in there.
Gary told Howard that he had another one for him. It was a list of band members and Howard had to name the bands. Howard got a bunch right. He was getting pissed at Robin when she was answering at the same time. Howard took a guess on a couple and got them right. Robin kept helping even though he told her not to.
Howard said he didn't want to play anymore. Gary said he had a few more left to go. Howard had almost given up. Gary said he had just a few more. Howard went through them and got a few more right. Howard had some trouble with the boy band questions. He was also having trouble coming up with The Wallflowers. Howard finally got that one with a little help from his friend Fred. Fred played some of the song and it finally came to him.
Gary told Howard about the ones he got wrong. He got 27 out of 30 correct. Gary said they give you the stats for which ones are most missed and things like that.
Howard said he bets that Robin will be playing the game tonight. Robin said she will not. Howard asked Lisa if she knew any of the answers. Lisa said she did know New Kids on the Block but not all of them. Lisa said they say you need to exercise your brain. Robin said she read that you don't really need that.
Howard said he heard that Lisa posted a video of herself on her web site (LisaG.com) dancing with her cat and it's really creepy. Gary said that it's her dancing in and out of the frame. Howard said he wants to see it. Lisa said she's dancing to music on Sirius Hits 1. Howard checked the video out and said it was creepy. Howard said it was kind of like Scores but weirder. He said that's the kind of music they dance to there. He said she should show her body when she does that.
Howard asked Lisa if she's got permission to use that song on her site. Lisa said it was being played on Sirius Hits 1 so it's fine. Howard said she's very litigious and she should know that she can't use the song. Lisa said she'll have to look into it. Howard said he has a bunch of stuff to play but he has to take a break first.
Howard came back and said he has a lot of stuff to buzz through right now. He told Robin to pay attention. He mentioned the Wack Pack contest they have going on now. They're looking for the next Wack Packer.
Howard said that Eric the Midget says he's not a Wack Packer but they have a point system that they put together and Eric scored really high on the points. Howard had Eric on the phone to talk to him about that but he also had a voice mail message that her left for Gary.
Howard played the message Eric left for Gary where he threatens him. In the message Eric calls Gary an ape face and tells him that they have to stop speculating about him having a mental disorder and told him to fly him out to New York so he can prove to them that he doesn't have any mental disorder. Eric said they piss him off too many times and they're assholes. He said they've made him look bad too many times and he's sick of it. Eric told Gary not to waste SIRIUS' money to send Steve Langford to cover his reunion either. He said they should fly him to New York instead. he also said he hopes the Mets get swept.
Howard said he wouldn't fly Eric to New york because he'll say he won't come. Eric said he won't back out. Howard said he will. He said that's just another reason he's a Wack Packer. Howard also pointed out that calling Gary retard is just as bad as saying midget. Eric said that they use it all the time on the show. Eric said he is not a midget so that's why he's offended by it. Robin said that's not a good explanation.
Howard said Eric is a Wack Packer. Eric kept saying he's not. Howard asked Eric if he's a regular caller to the show. Eric said there are a lot of people who call often. Howard said they have a point scale. Eric said he's just a regular caller and a regular caller only.
Howard asked Eric if he's been a guest in the studio. Eric said a lot of celebrities are on the show. Eric said he has been a guest. Howard asked if he's unemployed or unemployable. Eric said not by choice. Howard asked if he's handicapped or retarded. Eric said he is handicapped. Howard asked if his voice is funny or something they can goof on. That was a yes, Howard answered for him.
Howard asked if his appearance is considered funny. Eric said no but Howard said yes. He asked if Howard Stern has created a name for him. Eric said Stuttering John came up with the name. Howard said that's the same thing. He went through a bunch of other questions that he had ''yes'' answers for.
Howard asked if he denies being in the Wack Pack. that was a yes. He asked if he had shit himself. Eric said no. Howard asked if he's going to die before the age of 55. Eric said he doesn't think he will. Howard said Eric scored 36 points, Wendy the Retard only scored 23, High Pitch Eric was 30 points. Gary said they can add more points for Eric because he's on prescription drugs. Howard said that Underdog Lady only got 16 points so Eric is definitely in the Wack Pack. Howard ran down a list of names and Mariann from Brooklyn only had 9 points so she's technically not even in the Wack Pack. Howard said Will the Farter only got 10. Crackhead Bob had 20. Howard said that this survey works because Evil Dave only got 9 and he's not in the Wack Pack. Howard said the survey works and Eric out scored everyone so he's definitely in the Wack Pack.
Howard asked why he's so bummed out by being in the group. Eric said they have racists and retards in the group so he doesn't want to be in it. Howard said there's good and bad in every group. He said they've even kicked people out of the Justice League of America. Howard told Eric he's in and he's the highest scoring one in the group. He scored even higher than Beetljuice.
Eric said that he's not in the Wack Pack and if anyone goes on his Facebook page and says that, he's going to block them. He said he doesn't care if he takes himself down to 0 people. Fred had an edited clip of Eric saying ''Eric the Lame Ass Wack Packer'' that he played a couple of times.
Howard said that even if they bring Eric in there to test him he's not going to get out of the Wack Pack. Howard asked if he could beat Sal in an IQ test. Robin said no. Howard doesn't think he can either. Robin said he might be ''Eric the Retard'' for real.
Eric said he wants to take the test and he thinks that they stole the idea to do the test from him. Howard said that's Wack Pack behavior thinking that they stole an idea from them. Howard said they've done that testing many times in the past. Howard said he can consider it stolen if he wants but they've done it before. Eric thinks that someone gave them the idea. Gary said he thinks that Johnny Fratto gave them the idea. Howard said that he didn't.
Howard took some calls and Captain Janks said that he has tried to get into the Wack Pack for 20 years and he can't get in. He asked Eric why he takes it so personally. Eric said that he doesn't want to be in the group with people like Riley Martin, High Pitch Eric and others that he doesn't like. Janks said that he's not representing the other guys so he should just accept it.
Howard took another call from the Pink Cowboy who said Eric should just accept it. Howard said he could elevate the group. Cowboy said that he should take it as a compliment.
Jeff the Drunk called in and said he wants to take Eric on in an IQ test. Howard said maybe he'll have to do that. He told Eric he's in. He said Jeff is in too. Jeff asked if he could be flown in too. Howard said yes but he's only an hour and a half away so Gary said he can't fly him in.
Johnny Fratto called in and said that he's probably the worst Wack Packer because he picks the phone up on this mother fucker. He said he has to rat Eric out. He said something is going on in New York and he wants to be there just for that. He said that he wants to see Diana DeGarmo in Hair. Johnny said he had to do that. Howard asked Eric if that's true. Eric said that he guesses that he's throwing him under the bus because he did the same to Johnny.
Johnny said there are a lot of dudes in Hair naked too. He said that Diana isn't the only one who is naked. Eric said he heard she's completely naked. Robin asked Eric if he's willing to say that he's in the Wack Pack to get to New York. Eric said no. Robin told him to stay home then.
Even Johnny said Eric is in the Wack Pack. Eric said Johnny and his son have both told him that he's not in the Wack Pack. Johnny said that he heard the test and it was completely logical. Howard told Eric that the IQ test is going to be humiliating if he loses to Jeff the Drunk.
Johnny told Howard that he has to be careful out in California. He told him to be careful about the baby thing. He said it's so fuckin' hard. He said that nothing is working on him now and everything hurts. He said he's got a 17 month old that runs around like crazy. He said he has to chase after the little fucker.
Howard said he was into that when he was young but not anymore. He said he's done with that part of his life. He said he's told Beth that. He said he has 56 year old friends who are chasing 5 year olds around and he doesn't want that.
Johnny said he went to get something and when he came back the kid was standing on a chair. He said if he had fallen he would have hit something. Howard said even with the dog it's a nightmare. He said he has to go get the leash for the dog so the dog walker can take her out. Howard said he doesn't want to spend the rest of his days chasing a little kid.
Johnny said that he's locked down and he can't do anything anymore. He said his wife lied to him and told him he wouldn't have to take care of this kid. He said that he should have done things different. He said Howard would never be able to do this, not even for 5 minutes. Howard asked if he could have the kid whacked. Johnny said he could but it would all come back to him. Howard said he feels for him. Johnny said he can't even watch TV anymore. He doesn't have any time for that. He has to watch Sponge Bob Square Pants all day instead.
Howard said he feels for Johnny. He said he's having a good time in his life because he can sit back and relax when he wants. Johnny said he has no time for that.
Howard said he knows Johnny loves his kid but he does feel for him. Johnny talked about this thing he wears around the house to carry the kid around. He said that thing is torture. Howard asked where the joy is in this. Johnny said he'd like to know. He said if he gets rid of the mother then he can Nanny it up around there. He said that might make it fun. Howard asked if he has any help. Johnny said they won't let anyone touch the kids. Johnny said he can't even go out. He said he got out once last week to dinner. He said he had to go home in the middle of it because the kid had a temperature.
Howard said he's thinking about a certain man who wouldn't put up with that and it was Louis Fratto. Johnny said that's true. He said that his father was married to another woman before his mother. He said his father was born in 1906 so he had a family before his. Johnny said the mother saw his father doing some shit and it freaked her out so she took off with her daughter. Johnny said that his father wasn't able to find them. Johnny said that the girl was born in 1925 and while they were researching his book they looked for the woman. Johnny said they found her, she's 80, and she's living in Escondito, California. He hasn't seen her yet but he's going to go visit her soon. He said he just found out about this new sister and maybe he can drop the fuckin kids off with her.
Howard told Johnny and Eric he had to go. He said Johnny says he's in the Wack Pack so he's in. Howard said he doesn't care if Eric wants to go see Hair. He can do whatever he wants in his off time. Howard said he'll look into getting Eric out there. Eric said his book might be getting published soon. He said he doesn't want them fucking up that deal so he's not going to say who is going to publish it.
Howard took a call from a guy who said they should have a ceremony to crown Eric the King of the Wack Pack. Howard said they might have to do that.
Howard took a call from a guy who said Eric is an ungrateful little bastard. Eric said he's not ungrateful. The caller said that Eric is just using the show to get to New York. Howard said that's the way it goes around there. Everyone uses them. Eric said he's not a user. The caller said he is Eric the User.
Howard took another call from a guy who said that Eric has to agree to be flown by balloons if he loses to Jeff the Drunk. Robin said they'll fly him as the King of the Wack Packers. Howard asked Eric if he's going to be freaked out if Diana has a huge bush. Robin said they have to, it takes place in the 60s. Howard asked Eric if he likes that. Eric said he's not going to comment about that.
High Pitch Eric called in and asked why he calls him a piece of shit. He said Eric should be happy he's on the show too. Eric said that High Pitch has been taken to court for stealing. High Pitch said that's over with. Howard said it's not over for the people he owes money to. High Pitch said he thinks that Eric should be happy he's in the Wack Pack. That's huge.
Howard took another call from a guy who said that he is in the play with Diana DeGarmo and he gets to kiss her. He said she's very nice looking but he hasn't seen her bush. He said he doesn't really recall but he thinks that they take care of themselves. He said he grooms himself. He said most of the girls are ''pretty clean.'' Howard wondered how he could be in a play and not know if the girl has a bush. He said they don't stare at each other. Howard asked Eric what he thought of that. Eric said the guy is lucky.
Howard told Eric he'll try to get him flown in there for the IQ test. Eric said there's no chance in hell that Jeff will beat him. Howard said that Eric doesn't even know what 9x8 is. Eric said no one performs well when they're half asleep. Robin asked him what 9x8 was. Eric said it was 81. Howard said he's going to do horribly on the test. Eric said he's not. He will do just fine. Howard told him to go rest up after he coughed a little bit.
Eric asked if Hulk Hogan is going to be on the show tomorrow. Howard said he is. Gary wondered how he knew. Eric said he heard it on some show. Howard let him go after that. He said he has a lot to get to but now he has to break again. They spent a little more time talking about Eric and how he gets 9x8 wrong every time they ask him. He got it wrong today. Howard wondered how he'll do on the IQ test. Gary said he thinks he'll be in the 90s. He said he won't break 100.
Howard said he's betting on Scott DePace. He said he did some research and found that IQ correlates to the SAT scores so he thinks that he will do well. Jason got a higher SAT score but Scott said they changed the tests between the time he took his and Jason took his. Howard said Jason claims they weren't changed. Howard said he's fucked if that's the case. Howard said he might have to call off the bets.
The guys spent a few more minutes talking about the IQ test that they have coming up and how they think people are going to do. Gary was saying that the really smart people down play their intelligence instead of bragging like Scott DePace does. DePace came in and said that the three people who are too chicken to take the test are the ones saying that.
Howard found out that DePace got a 1060 on his first SAT. he got an 1180 on the second try. Scott said he did an IQ test online yesterday and scored a 128. Howard said maybe he'll do okay then. He went to break after that.
Howard came back and said he had a bunch of things to get to. He said he had to give an award to David Letterman for finally manning up and not being a pussy. He didn't like how he did that commercial with Jay Leno during the Super Bowl. Howard said when Jay showed up it kind of showed Dave had pussied it. He said that gave Jay some credibility.
Howard said he saw Dave on with Dr. Phil the other night and Dave was bashing Jay. Howard said he always said that Dave was better than Jay and he'll always say that. Howard said Dave is back in prime form now.
Howard payed the clip of Dave and Dr. Phil talking about the late night wars. Dave said Jay summed it up when he said that they both got screwed. Dave was wondering how Jay got a show if they both got screwed. Dave said that Jay got everything he deserved with the bashing. Dr. Phil was defending Jay. Dave said he wishes that it was still going on. Dave said Jay was hilarious talking about how he lost a show too but then he got his old show back.
Dave was saying that Jay was funny but there's this other side to him and he's just a complete boob. Dave said Jay can't help himself. Dave was doing his impression of Jay and goofing on him talking about working on his cars and stuff.
Howard said Dr. Phil was actually being a good guest for that short time. He's not sure how he was in the rest of the show. Howard said that's the Dave he likes. Howard said his wife is going to be on Dave's show. He thinks that it's on May 6th.
Howard said Beth had some ideas for what to do on the show. Howard said he told her that she doesn't have to do that much. He said she has an interesting agenda. He said she's hot too so that will keep Dave busy working with her. Howard said he's proud of Dave for doing what he did in that clip.
Howard said Beth was talking about how she wanted to get the right information about dogs into this book. He said they can make fun of him for that but that's fine. He doesn't give a shit.
Howard said he has a rationale for what Beth is doing. He said that Imus' wife wasn't doing shit when Imus met her. He said that he had a dating show to meet her on his own show. Howard said Seinfeld's wife is a nice woman too and he's not sure about what she was doing before she met Jerry. Howard said Beth was a working woman before he met him... then he said that this wasn't going anywhere.
Robin said that Katie Joel was in cooking school before she married Billy Joel but then she put out a cooking book. That's kind of like what Beth is doing. She loves animals and she was working with them before she met Howard. Howard said that she did have her own career and worked on the Letterman show. Robin said she did a lot of things. Howard said he's going with that then.
Howard said that he's going to a lot of appearances with Beth. He said that Jimmy Kimmel is going to throw him that party out there too. He said it's turning into a big party. He said that Mark McGrath is coming. Jillian Barberie will be there and the Cox-Arquettes will be there. He said that the Afflecks should be there too. He said it's like a big pow-wow out there.
Howard said Jimmy claims he's cooking the main course and catering the rest of the food. Howard said that Leno and Stuttering John won't be there. He said he sees that Beth is still friends with Suzanna, John's wife, and that pisses him off. Howard said he doesn't want John around him anymore because he's a big, fuckin' phony. Howard said that Beth tells him to calm down when he flips out about him. Howard said he likes John's wife and so does Beth but he's not going to be around John anymore.
Howard said he had John to his house recently and then he back stabbed him on his Facebook. He said he's done with him after that.
Robin told Howard he can't say that about a baby. Howard said the kid looks tough. He said he does look like a bad ass and it's not a bad thing. Howard said he kid was wearing beads. Robin said the kid doesn't dress himself.
Howard said Sandra seems very happy. He said he knows that some black people don't like it when white women adopt black babies. He said you never see black people adopting white kids. He said the kid looks cool. He's got a full head of hair at 4 months. Howard said the kid looks very adult for that age. Howard said he thinks it's actually a midget who wants to live in Sandra's house. Robin saw the picture and said it was a pretty funny picture.
Howard said that some of these actresses go away for months at a time and he can understand how tough it would be for a husband. He said that even the best guy is going to have a tough time. Howard said he'd get jealous if he were married to someone like that. Howard said Sandra was all over Ryan Reynolds in that movie they were in. He said he wouldn't put up with that.
Howard said even if you don't get along with your son you don't go to the press and talk about him like this. He said that's just wrong.
Howard said he had some audio of Naomi Campbell walking out of an interview on ABC. Howard said that she was accused of taking a blood diamond from some guy so she went on this interview and she ends up knocking into a camera on purpose. Howard played the clip and a reporter was asking her about this diamond and she refused to talk about that. Naomi said she didn't get a diamond. She said goodbye and then knocks into the camera.
Robin said she obviously doesn't want to give up that diamond. Robin said she's not sure why she gets so upset if she says she didn't get a diamond.

Robin said that Annemarie is her personal friend and this thing had nothing to do with work. Robin said that Kathy was there because someone else invited her. Robin said that she and Annemarie built up their relationship over many years. Robin said she can't do anything right around there. That led to Howard doing more of his Robin impression.

Steve said JD told them that this other woman was before he started spending time with this woman who was up there.
Howard took a call from his dad who said he went for his check up yesterday and he told the guy that he was born on 7/11 and he got the good news that he can get free coffee if he brings his birth certificate with him. Ben said that he's going to do that. He said you only get that on your birthday though. Howard said he's not kidding either. Ben said he is kidding. He said he's not going to do that to get a dollar cup of coffee. Robin said he has his driver's license that has his date on it. Ben said that's true.
Ben said he got a good bill of health. Howard said his dad has never had cancer or anything like that. Ben told Howard about a guy he used to work with and how they would go through a bunch of takes and he'd go back to the first one when he got tired of the takes and just use the first take.

Howard said there could be many arks that were build in history. Robin said the pieces they found showed that they could have held animals in the ark. Robin said that they think it is from the ark based on the carbon dating they did.
Howard had to go to break after that. After the break Howard came right back and said he was able to multitask during that commercial break. He put a bracelet on while he was reading the copy.

Jason came in and said that most doctors won't do that lethal injection because it's so brutal. Jason said that the guys who do are shunned by the medical community.

Jon asked how accurate the questionnaire was. Gary said it was very accurate. He said that they had a lot of questions that Eric had to answer yes to. Gary said it was like every question was a yes and like a ''ding, ding, ding, ding...''
Gary said there are some people out there who have no choice about taking government assistance. He said that Eric is one but Jeff the Drunk is one who shouldn't because he's able to function. He said he did graduate high school even if it was at 21. Gary said when he sees him going out and buying cigarettes and alcohol it makes him mad.
Jon asked Gary about the voice mail Eric left for him. Gary said that he cut out a minute of that message because Eric repeats himself so much. Gary said the message he got that was really interesting was the one from someone else about why Eric wanted to come to New York to see Diana DeGarmo in Hair.
Jon asked if he has any chance at beating Jeff the drunk in an IQ test. Gary said he doesn't think so. He said they asked Eric how much 9x8 was, again, and he got it wrong, again. Gary said he loves busting Eric's balls and he loves that he gets them wrong. He said the testing will be interesting. He said you either know the answers or not.

Jon took a call from a guy who said he thinks that someone else is the king of the wack packers. He said it's Ralph. He has a funny voice, he's got the berry and he's ''Ralph the berry faced homo'' so he has ''the'' in his name. Gary said that he's not really a Wack Packer. they talked about how Sal was borderline Wack Packer when he wasn't working for the show. Mariann from Brooklyn is a borderline Wack Packer. Benjy said he agrees with Eric that he should be able to decline the offer.
Jeff the Drunk called in and said he has to take umbrage with Gary. He said he hasn't smoked in a year. Gary said that's great. Jeff said that Gary wished him dead one time too. Gary said he didn't do that. Jeff said he told him he was still going to die of lung cancer. Gary said he's not wishing him death though.
Gary asked Jeff why he can't work. Jeff said he can't drive and he doesn't live near a bus. Jeff said he goes shopping once a month and he gets a ride for that. Gary said that he could find something to do. He said he could do some telemarketing or something like that. Benjy said he would do what Jeff is doing if they're offering it to him.
Jon asked Jeff if he really wants to get flown in for the contest. Jeff said he does. Gary said he has to work it all out and he's not sure how that's going to work.
Jon asked Jeff if Eric is a Wack Packer. Jeff said he is. He doesn't agree he's the king. Jeff thinks that Beetlejuice is the king of the Wack Packers. Gary said that seems to be the consensus.
Benjy asked Jeff how much he gets from the government. Jeff said it's around 600 a month. He said he has to pay rent on the lot he lives on. Gary said that has to be pretty minimal. Jeff said it's $225 a month. They spent another minute talking to him about that and then let him go.
Ralph called in and said he's not trying to take the opposite opinion but he doesn't see Eric as a Wack Packer. He said Eric doesn't seem to like the show or anyone on it. Gary said he does like using the show to get what he wants. Ralph said that it's a necessary evil for him. He said he's not in the Wack Pack though. Ralph said anything he does is under protest. Gary said that there are things that are beyond his control that put him in the Wack Pack. He said his appearance and his affliction are two of those things.
Jon asked Gary if he thinks that Eric would admit he likes the show. Gary said that Eric wouldn't say he's a fan but he would say he likes certain parts of the show. Ralph doesn't think that he'd admit to it either. Gary said he might but he'd do it under protest.
Jon asked Ralph if he thinks he's a Wack Packer. Ralph works there so he can't be one but Gary thinks that he would be if he didn't work there. He said Sal is close to being a Wack Packer even though he works there. He said Richard was never close. He said that he was just a frequent caller.
They talked about how Ronnie wrote a letter to Howard to get his job. Ralph did the same thing. Ralph was downplaying that. There have been other people like Will Murray who have written letters too.
They talked about some of the guys who were huge fans of the show before they worked there. Gary said that many of them were. He said that Scott Salem became a superfan when they offered him the job. They had to go to break after that.
Gary said he's been working on the book and it's just come together now. He said that he got a note from someone saying that this is their way of saying Howard has already said he's not coming back and everyone so going to get out and find a job. Gary said that's not the case though.
Gary said that the call he had to make to Howard was tough. He said he had rehearsed it a bunch of times and he was super nervous about asking if he could do the book. Gary said it's not a behind the scenes book about the show though. He said it's mostly about his life. He said he'll have a chapter about his pitch and about that take me back tape and other things like that.
Gary said he had an offer to write the book but he got Howard's blessing before he took it. Mike Gange asked him to make all of the pictures in his book into cartoon cells. Gary said he'd look into that. Benjy told him he should have Howard give him a picture of him that he's drawn. Gary said that's an idea but they're just writing the book now. He said he's not going to bother Howard about writing a foreword for it.
Gary said he was told to think about who he'd like to write the foreword and if it fits then ask that person. Gange suggested Boy Lee who Gary replaced. Gary said he doesn't really know him very well though. Gary said he thinks that his shrink would be a good person to write the foreword.
Gary said this wasn't that big of a secret because he told a lot of people about it in the past month or so. He said that people did congratulate him on the book today though. He knows that there will be mocking over the next few months. He said that they'll take clips of the audio book and edit them. He said he's ready for all of that.
Gary said that the book is coming out in November and he'll be doing book signings around that time. He said he's going to have to do four in the week it comes out.
Jon asked Gary what he thought about Sal goofing on him in the hall today. Gary said it's entertaining but no one can hear it on the radio.
Gary said there were some heavy hitters there too so that was interesting. Jon asked why Benjy was deemed to be socially uncomfortable. Gary said he's not sure why that is because he spoke to Benjy last night and it was fine. Gange said sometimes he'll just blurt stuff out and it can throw people off. He said some people don't understand it that much.
Benjy said he thinks he has a good time and he doesn't understand it either. Gange said that Benjy asked him if he could sleep on the top bunk that night when they were talking to the chicks. He said that he had to explain that he was just making that up. He said that's the kind of stuff that throws people off.
Benjy said that he probably shouldn't have gone up to Robin the way he did. He said she did tell him that she was making up content for the show today when she brought it up but he's not sure if she was kidding about that or not.
Jon took a call from a woman who said that Gary is terrific but he's been a bad boss to Tracey. She said she heard the show yesterday and it sounds like they have some poor communication there. Gary said that he agrees with that. The caller said that there was a lot of bad mouthing of Tracey too. Gary said he wasn't bad mouthing her.
Jon asked Gary who is supposed to set the tone of the office there. Gary said he sets the tone for how the show runs and she's supposed to set the tone for how the office runs. Gary said they do have some cross over but it's up to Tracey about who gets to leave early and things like that. The caller said that when he doesn't tell her something and she doesn't know about something, that's Gary's fault. Gary said Jason took the blame for that.
The caller said that Gary isn't backing up his employees. She said that Gary is Tracey's boss. Gary said that Tim Sabean is her boss too and so is Howard. He said he wouldn't be allowed to fire Tracey. Gange said he could put in a good argument to fire her though. Gary said that's true but Howard would have to know about it. Gary said Howard is the big boss and then Gary is like middle management.
The caller said she gets the feeling that it's not Tracey's fault that she can't talk to him. Gary said he's not on a power trip or anything and he doesn't yell at anyone and people can talk to him. He said he doesn't know why Tracey couldn't just talk to him about the refrigerator thing.
Jon let the caller go and got back to Robin. That led to them asking Gange about his ex-girlfriend and how he's having a hard time moving on. Gange said that he's just having a tough time and he's not even sure why. Gange said that he hasn't had that much contact with her since the break up but any contact gives him hope.
Gary offered to lend Gange his video camera so he could make his own ''take me back'' tape. Gange laughed and said that's the last thing he would do.
Jon asked Gange about the girls they were hitting on last night. They said that they spoke to them for like 15 minutes. Jared Fox came in and said that he saw them hitting on the girls and they're downplaying it. Jared said he wanted to help introduce them. He said that one of them was really attractive and Gange went right over to her. He said that Benjy and him were left to talk to the other one that wasn't as hot.
They talked about how hot the one girl was and how Gange was asking Jeff Schick to talk him up with her. He was doing that for him too.
Ralph called in again and said that when he left he saw them talking up the girls and they were there for a long time. Benjy said he wasn't even trying to hook up. Ralph asked why he spent so much time with the girls then. Benjy said he was talking to a lot of people.
Jon asked if Gange was boxing out a lot of people. Ralph said that Jared was pissed that they were cock blocking them. Jared said that did feel that Gange kind of cock blocked him. He said he and Benjy were stuck with the chick that wasn't as hot.
Jon asked about who was invited to this thing. Gary said that Robin says she didn't invite anyone. Mel Karmazin bought a table and Tim Sabean was left to invite people to the table. Robin had another table that she invited people to. Gary said Robin had some close friends there and it wasn't fair to blame Robin for not inviting people when it wasn't up to her. Gary said it was a bizarre coincidence that Tracey wasn't invited to this thing. He said that it was kind of funny that it was all guys at the table and Tracey had said that it was like a boy's club there.
Jon took a call from a woman who was wondering if they think that Robin spreads herself too thin with the charities. Gary said none of them seem to be suffering and she's still doing her job so things seem to be okay. He said that maybe if something starts to suffer then maybe she's spreading herself too thin.
Gange said that someone there told him that the event was the most sold out than any other event they had ever done and it was due to Robin.
The caller sounded familiar to Benjy said he asked if she had lost her daughter. She said that wasn't her. Benjy said that's the kind of stuff he says to women at parties.
Jon took another call from a woman who said that she wises she had a boss like Gary. She said that Tracey must have a secret crush on Gary and that's why she's acting the way she does. She asked why they would put up with such a person. Gary said she has a life and a boyfriend. Gary said he thinks she might be hurt a little bit about what went on too and they do like her. They had to end the show a short time later.
Howard started the show talking about how Bubba wasn't on his show yesterday. He said he has some kind of court case going on. He said he's not up on the show lately but the main guy they go to on the show is Spice Boy and not Brent anymore. Howard said Spice Boy seems to get a lot more air time. Fred said he thinks that something is up but he's not sure what. Howard said he likes Brent but there seems to be a shift in power going on.
Robin came in all dressed up so Howard asked what was going on. Robin said she felt like wearing a dress today. Howard said her legs are all shaved. Robin said she doesn't have to shave them. They don't have hair. Howard said Robin looks like she was coming home from a walk of shame but Robin said she was home last night.
Robin was at a fund raiser last night. She said she was checking out the Harlem Village Academy. Howard said she seems to be enjoying the new Robin the Philanthropist.
Robin said she saw some of Howard's friends last night. She told Howard about someone she saw and Howard said he wants to set Robin up with the guy she saw. Howard said they seem to be in love right now though. Howard said that's the kind of guy he has to find for her.
Howard said he's been playing a guy in chess lately who is rated near 2000 and he might be right for Robin. He has no idea what he looks like though. Howard said he's going to keep his eye open for guys for Robin.
Fred said he would keep his eye open too. He just hasn't found anyone for her. Fred said the dean of his daughter's school would be good but he's married. Robin said they all seem to find married men for her.
Howard got back to Bubba and talked about this guy who was filling in for him. JD came in and said that it was some guy named Porter and it seemed like it was only a half hour that he filled in for Bubba. Howard said the guy was screaming about people not knowing how to mow their lawns and stuff like that. Howard said the guy was going berserk and losing his mind over that stuff. He said it was very good and compelling so he was wondering who the guy was. He said he would like to know where Bubba is too.
Howard said Ronnie was speculating that Bubba was in court but he didn't know that for sure. Howard said he's all wrapped up in this stuff.
Howard said Rosie O'Donnell was doing her show up there in the Fish Bowl studio. He said he likes it when she does it there. He said it's more exciting when they have people up there. He doesn't see much of that lately. He said he saw Betty Buckley in the studio with Rosie. He said he knows her and saw that she was there. Howard said Rosie loves Broadway and Betty is in a Broadway play right now. Howard said he asked a buddy of his why gay people love theater so much. He said he knows that's a stereotype but his buddy told him it was ''fantasy'' and they like that.
Howard said he heard what was going on in the studio with Rosie and Betty and they were performing a song. He said he heard Rosie laughing during the song and he wasn't sure if the song was supposed to be funny or what. He said Rosie got it and he didn't. Howard said Rosie applauded the song and he figured he's just out of it. He said he tuned in and heard Rosie yesterday and she was thinking of doing a special show in the fish bowl once a month.
Howard said he was trying to figure it all out and he got all happy about all of the stuff they're doing on satellite. He likes the diversity of what they have going on there. It's like 50 different worlds colliding.
Gary came in and told Howard that Porter was a caller to the Bubba show and he used to complain that Bubba wasn't doing a good job so Bubba told him to come in and try doing the show himself. That's why he was on. Howard said the guy was like a one man show and it was entertaining. He said he enjoyed it. He said he was compelled to listen and he stayed tuned.
Howard read the article about the guy getting hit by a taxi after leaving a meeting in the city. Howard said the guy was really concerned about the community. He said the guy really cared according to the article.

Benjy told Howard he thinks that he's Jewish. Howard said that can't be. He said the guy's name was Harry Weeder. Robin said she wasn't sure he was black either. Howard said the guy had a lot of issues. He said the poor guy couldn't have a more difficult time in life. Howard said he had a lot of shit on his plate. Everyone has some good and bad but this guy had a lot of bad.
Howard said if you can get past the porno star thing then she must be a lot of fun. He said that Tito must have been having fun with her.
Howard said Jenna's ass is perfection. He said these porn stars these days are amazing. He said that he was watching the Adult Video News awards and he's blown away about how hot these girls are these days. He said they're doing everything in the porn movies too. He said it's pretty wild.

Howard said Jesse was cheating and he was cheating on someone who just adopted a baby. He said that they had to have a Jewish Moyle come in and give the kid his bris. Howard said they didn't want anyone knowing about the adoption so they had it done like that.
Howard said it's great reading about these people. He said he saw that dwarf guy who got killed by the cab and that guy couldn't have had it easy in his life.
Howard said he saw a story about a guy who asked not to be put in a coffin at his wake when he dies. They ended up putting him on his motorcycle. Howard showed the picture to Robin. Robin said she missed that one. She said she didn't know the guy was dead. Howard read the article about that and said that the guy asked his family to avoid a traditional funeral. Howard said they propped him up on his motorcycle. Howard said that seems creepy. He said the guy was only 20 years old and he was telling his family not to have a normal funeral for him. Howard said maybe he was a cop or something. Robin said he could have been a gang member if he thought he was going to die young.
Robin told Howard about what the kids were talking about at the event and how rough they had it at school. Robin said they came to this orderly place and they love it. It was tough at first for them but now they love it.
Howard said he's against that. He said that when he was at Roosevelt they would take any promising kids out of the school and send them to another school to get a good education. Howard said he had to sit there because he was ''whitey'' and he had no hope for friends or anyone to take him to a better school. Howard said they shipped out the good students.
Robin said that she's talking about the kids who are stuck in that bad school. They get to get out of there to go to this Harlem Village Academy. Howard said he was stuck with the heavy offenders in his school. He said they were like grown men stuck in high school.
Howard went into his impression of Robin making a speech at this event. He was doing what he did during the show yesterday when he was making fun of her speech.
Robin said they had Rupert Murdoch there at the event and he gives a lot of money to this place. Robin said they have to raise millions to keep the place running and Rupert gave half a million. Howard said the guy is like 900 years old so how much longer could he last. He said he's like Larry King who just won't die.
Howard talked about how Larry's wife didn't expect him to live this long. He did an impression of Larry talking to his wife and telling her how he had a new reason for living now that he was married to her. He had Larry's wife, Shawn, screwing up his name and calling him Hector accidentally. He had Shawn talking to the guy she cheated with, Hector, and telling him that Larry had a strong will to live now. Howard was doing the voice of Hector with a heavy Mexican-ish accent.
Howard had Larry yelling at Shawn and telling her that his Viagra was wearing off. Howard had Shawn talking to Hector about how she could cut Larry's dick off to get rid of him. He had Hector telling Shawn that she's getting kind of old now too.
Howard said he could do that all day long. He said he's no Sour Shoes but he can do some voices. He knows they're not great but he does okay.
Howard wondered what he was talking about to get into that. Robin brought up Rupert Murdoch again. Howard said these old guys keep going. He said Rupert is out at charity events and the guy is like 90 years old. He said he keeps on ticking. Howard said he's like Sumner Redstone who won't let go of his empire either.
Howard said maybe Sumner Redstone is the guy for Robin. She said that he is single. Howard said Robin would bang him for a year and end up a billionaire. Howard wondered how hard his cock could be. He said he must be impotent at this age.
Robin thought that Rupert was only 79. Howard said that can't be right. He tried to do some math to figure out how old he really was. He was counting on his fingers and came up with 79. Howard asked Robin how she came up with that number so quick. Robin told him how she did the math and Howard said he can't do that.
Pete said Howard must have felt very comfortable in there. Howard said he did. Pete said he hasn't had that in a long time and he really misses it. Howard said there are women you can have sex with and it's good but you don't feel so comfortable. Howard said it is comfortable with Beth.
Pete asked if he does it in the dark. Howard said it's in the dark most of the time. He doesn't like to do it in the light.
Pete was talking about how great it must be to be with her. He was talking about how beautiful Beth is and was getting all weird. He was asking about opening her legs and stuff like that. Pete said that's what he needs in his life too. Howard said Beth is out in Pittsburgh visiting her family once in a while.
Howard said Pete does deserve that. He said he needs love. Everyone does. Robin asked why Pete deserves it so much. Pete said we're all human and everyone should have that. He said he's a man and he has rights to have a woman.
Howard said he thinks that Pete's life would change if he had a woman. He said he'd be less angry and he'd have a calm about him.
Pete said he has been doing what Howard told him to do but he hasn't been able to find someone like Beth. He said he just can't find what Howard has. Howard said that Pete is looking for a relationship. He said that 99 percent of the time he's with Beth they're not having sex. It can't just be about sex. Robin said Pete is looking for a fantasy life. She said that he's looking for something that doesn't exist.
Pete said he wants his dream girl like Howard got to have. Howard said he can have that. He said he has to adjust his dream though. Howard said his relationship with Beth wouldn't work out if it was all sex. He said it would be very empty. Howard said if they had sex once a day then the rest of the time you're together you have to enjoy being with them. Howard said that he went out with a lot of women and he'd run out of stuff to say to them.
Pete told Howard how he's been trying to find women and Howard gave him some advice. He said he can't tell the women that he knows they're not going to work out. Howard said Ralph is able to get women by hanging out with them. He said that's what Pete has to do. Howard said he has to just hang out. Howard said Pete has to be so busy that they want to hang with you but you're too busy to spend too much time with them.
Pete said Fred met his wife on the radio show and he settled with that. He said Fred could have had plenty of other women. He said he just settled with that one. Fred said he didn't just settle. Fred said he found someone who was very special to him and it wasn't planned.
Pete asked Fred how he could be with a Jewish woman after what he's said on the show in the past. Fred asked Pete what he's smoking these days. Fred said Pete needs to be woken up to reality. He said he has no job and no woman will be interested in him because he has no future. Pete said that might be true but he should be able to find a woman. Fred said he's delusional. He told Pete that Howard has personality and he's interesting and Pete has none of that.
Pete said Fred settled for the first thing that came to him on the radio. Fred said that's not what it's all about. He said it's not all about looks either. He said that shows how shallow Pete is. Pete said looks are a big part of a relationship. Fred said that he'll never get a girl like Beth. Fred said Pete is going to spend many nights alone.
Howard let Pete go after Fred went off on him for a couple of minutes. Jeff the Drunk called in and said he wanted to talk to Pete. He said he wanted to tell him that if Karma is true then he should be hit by a frickin bus. Howard said he's talking sense now.
Howard said looks are a big part of a relationship for people. Fred said that's not what it's all about though. He said that Howard fond a woman who was attractive but she's also a nice person. Fred said that the whole dial-a-date thing with him and his wife has been a source of embarrassment for a while now. He said it can be a problem with people.
Howard said he has to get Robin married now. He said her biological clock is ticking and they're not sure how much longer she has.
Howard said he looked in the mirror this morning, nude, and it wasn't pretty. He said he's a mess. Robin told him to imagine what he'd look like if he didn't run.
Howard said Benjy was pretty funny on the Wrap Up Show yesterday. He said they talked about Gary's book too. Howard said Ralph was talking about the Wack Pack and Ralph made a good point about how a Wack Packer should love the show and Eric the Midget doesn't love the show. Howard played the audio of Ralph talking about that on yesterday's Wrap Up Show.
Howard said Eric is a fan of the show because he listens every day. He may not admit he's a fan but he does listen.
Robin said she read a story about a dog that saved its owner from a fire by running off and leading a cop back to the house. Howard said his dog would never do that. Robin said the guy just told the dog to get help and the dog did it and saved the owner's life. Robin said she wasn't sure where that was. Howard found out that it was up in a rural part of Alaska.
Howard said they have some new stuff up on Howard TV today and they have Sal making fun of Gary when he announced his book yesterday. He said that should be up tonight.
The caller asked Howard if his Howard TV would continue if he retires from SIRIUS. Howard said he would assume they'd stop. Howard said they'd have to do reruns unless he did some new shows with the crew. He's not sue what he'd do.
The caller also asked about the tapes of the old shows. Howard said they co-own them now but it's very complicated. The caller asked if he would get the tapes. Howard said the answer is really no and he owns the tapes. Howard said it's very complicated. He said that they could do reruns or something but he doesn't want them doing that so it won't happen.
Howard said there are a lot of companies that want his old tapes. He said he's not sure what will happen at the end of the 8 months. He said that he likes working there and they're good allies working with SIRIUS. He said they bring a lot to SIRIUS and he hopes something will work out.
The caller said he thinks that the company will fold if Howard leaves. Howard didn't say anything to that. He just let the caller go.
Howard took a call from a guy who was on his treadmill just listening to the show on hold. He asked Howard to leave him on hold. Howard said he heard about a 52 year old guy who was on a treadmill and just died. They talked about other people who have just died while jogging and stuff like that. Howard said he's not sure he wants to die jogging. Fred said that it's going to happen some day but it's best to stay in shape as long as you can.
Jason came in and told Howard that you're more likely to die in the first 6 hours of being awake than any other time. Robin said that you're also more likely to die on a Monday so should you avoid them too? Jason told Howard not to run.
Howard said they must test the things before they bring them out. Jason said there is a town somewhere that they test this stuff out. He said he's not sure how this one got through the test process.
Howard asked Jason about his bicycling. Jason said he is doing that. Howard said it must be the new thing for fat people. Jason said he has fun doing it and he went on a 15 mile ride the other day. Howard asked if he ever fantasizes about living in that town where they have all of the junk food. Jason said the town he grew up in did have a strip where they had every restaurant.
Howard asked if Arby's is still around. Jason said they're still around. Jason said they're pretty much just on the turnpike now. Howard asked Jason what he would eat when he was working in the restaurant he worked in. Jason said he used to take food home that they were going to throw out. He said that he wanted them to give to a homeless shelter but they didn't want to do that. Jason said he was a register guy because he smiles a lot so they liked that. Jason said he made the chicken sometimes and it's a gross process. He said they had thawed chicken but the powder was odd looking. He said he's not sure what was in the coating. He said it wasn't natural though. Jason said he didn't eat anything healthy when he was working in that place.
Howard said he heard that they're going to outlaw giving toys in fast food places in California. Howard said one of those conservative guys was talking about how the liberals want to outlaw everything. Howard and Jason spent a minute on that before they had to go to break.
Howard came back and asked where that version of Mellencamp song came from. Fred wasn't sure but he said it may be from a SIRIUS performance. Howard said it drives him crazy that John smokes. He said it's such a rock star thing to do. Robin said they talked to him about that when he was on the show. Howard said it doesn't help your voice like he said. Howard said it doesn't make your voice deep, it's just excuses.
Howard said Gary went on SternFanNetwork and it was a mistake. He said he hasn't been on the site in at least 6 months himself. He said Gary went on to see what they were saying about his book. Howard said they were coming up with new names for the book and they were goofing on Gary being a monkey. Howard said they had one about Gary's brother ''the fag who died of AIDS'' and some other brutal stuff like that. Howard read some of the titles they had and one was ''Mein Caps'' which Howard thought was funny and not so mean. Howard said they had ''Lord of the Chimps'' too which was funny.
Howard had Lisa G come in with her news preview. Lisa said they have a story about Richard Christy appearing in Modern Drummer magazine. She said they spoke to Richard's drum teacher and he was saying that Richard was ''slow'' but not dumb. Howard said that's the nice way of saying he's dumb. That led to Fred and Howard doing their impressions of Richard talking slow and not rushing around to do anything like the drum teacher was saying.
Lisa said the teacher said once Richard started to play drums he came out of his shell. Howard and Fred made fun of that too. Lisa said that Richard used to practice the drums with some other people. Fred and Howard were still goofing on Richard and how slow he speaks.
Lisa said that Richard had a band as a kid and they used to practice in a hog barn with the hog crap around. They used to scare the hogs out of the barn with their music.
Howard said Richard's nick name was ''Slow'' in Kansas. He said that's not made up either. Howard and Fred had some fun making fun of that.
Lisa said there's a new Facebook page about Robin's 9/11 story. That led to Howard reading some email he got about Robin yesterday. Howard read a few where they were talking about how she wouldn't shut up when Howard was trying to play Sporcle. Howard said Robin was talking over him and answering his questions.
Howard said people are back to loving Eric the Midget on the show. He read some of the mail they got. He said that the fans were saying they wanted more of him and the testing. Howard said he can't wait to test Eric. Some people thought Johnny Fratto was boring. Howard read through some of that but he thought Johnny was pretty good talking about the kid.
Howard got some mail about Lisa G. Someone wrote in about how hot she looks. Lisa asked what else he had to say. She thought he was going to insult her. She was shocked that the guy didn't. Howard asked if that turns her on in any way. Robin said that most of the mail is hateful. She thanked whoever it was that sent that one. Howard read an email about Lisa's cat dance and the guy said that's why she's single. She's a cat lady.
Howard said there were some comments on Gange and the discussion they had about him. One guy said that Gange is never going to make it on that 42 mile bike ride. The guy said he had a friend who ran a marathon and ended up pissing blood for the next week. Howard read an email about Gange and how he's going to croak on that 42 mile ride.
Lisa said they have a story about Sandy who says she's a big fan of JD's and she would sleep with him even though she's married. She has an open relationship. Howard asked if she could come in there. He said he'd like to meet the woman who has permission to fuck JD. Howard asked if she's hot. Lisa wasn't sure. She hadn't seen her yet.
Howard asked JD if he wanted to fuck this married woman. JD came in and said it's kind of creepy if she's married. JD said he's seeing people too so he's not sure he wants to do that. JD said he got an email from that lady and she wrote this whole long thing. He said the letter was about everything but sex. He said she was going on and on about stuff. Howard said JD is like Dennis Rodman on Celebrity Rehab, he needs subtitles.
JD said he doesn't remember the letter but there was a lot to it. He said all he remembers is that there was a lot.
Howard said JD really is Napoleon Dynamite. Fred played some JD drops where he was saying some goofy stuff. In one clip he said he doesn't poke bears. In another one he says ''This is how I talk. Whaddya want from me?''
JD told Howard he's not interested in this whole bit. Howard said there's no way it wouldn't be a bit. That's the whole reason the woman wrote to him. Robin asked JD if she looked like Cindy Crawford, would he do her. JD said he wants to see a picture of her first.
Howard asked if JD is mad at the news department. JD said he's not mad at them. He said they did this story where this girl said she liked macaroni and cheese and he just continued that... then he cut himself off and said goodbye. Howard said he could listen to JD all day. He said he loves him.
Robin asked why he's so clear and succinct on Tracey's show but not on this show. Howard said Tracey is all business on her show. Howard said they're kind of lax on their show.
The first question was cut off in the middle so Howard asked Gary why he didn't have it cued up. Gary had cued it up. Howard blamed Gary's book for the problem. Gary said he knew that he was going to blame the book and he won the pool on that. Gary said it only took an hour and 50 minutes for Howard to blame the book.
The first question was ''How many states are in the U.S.?'' Brian said she would know the answer. Howard said no way. Lupe said ''Fifteen.''
The second question was ''What do tadpoles grow up to be?'' Brian said she wouldn't know. Lupe said ''Butterflies.
The third question was ''Where is the Nile river?'' Brian said she won't know. Howard thought she would. Lupe said ''I think it's New York.''
The fourth question was ''Who is our Vice President?'' Brian said Lupe would not know. Howard agreed. Lupe said ''This guy that is like white hair.'' Brian won the $711 from 7-Eleven when he got that one right. Howard went to break right after that.
Howard came back and talked about American Idol and how odd it's gotten lately. He said they had a few bands on last night. He said they had Rascal Flats and Sons of Isabel on the show. He said people with actual careers were on the show. He said they had Shakira performing with Rascal Flats. He said she's very sexy and she was doing belly dancing during the song. He said it was pretty good. He saw Simon licking his chops over that. Howard said they really drag that show out a lot though.
Howard said he was reading about the Miami Dolphins and how they were going to get this new player, Dez Bryant, and when they asked him some question about his mother being a prostitute the guy got upset. Howard said they don't need to know something like that. Gary said they say that the Player's union is getting involved now. Gary said some of the teams are setting up Facebook pages with hot chicks so they can catch them saying weird stuff.
Gary came in and talked about the story. He said he thinks that it was only this guy that they asked that question. Howard read some of the article and how they are trying to treat these men as businessmen and they have to stop asking questions like that.
Howard asked if there was a rumor that his mom was a prostitute. Gary didn't know. Will Murray came in and said that his mom went to jail for dealing crack but that has nothing to do with the guy's ability to play football.
Howard said he had a clip to play. He said that Rahm Emanuel may have farted during an interview. He played the clip and you can hear a noise that sounds like a fart. Robin wondered why it wasn't the host being blamed. Howard said it looked like Rahm had made a face when the sound came. Howard said that clip is going around the internet now.
Howard said he has a clip from some NFL Draft news coverage that's really good. He said a fan saw a live shoot going on about the NFL draft live on CBS and a fan ran up and started yelling out ''Baba Booey'' and ''Howard Stern's penis'' over and over. They tried to shut him up but the guy kept yelling at the top of his lungs.
Howard wondered if the reporter should have stopped or should he have just kept going. Robin said he should have stopped because no one was even listening to him anymore.
Howard said he had a commercial clip to play where they talk about this Stephen Baldwin restoration thing. In the clip they talk about how Jobe lost everything but stayed faithful to God. they were comparing Stephen to Jobe.
Robin said she saw Stephen recently when she appeared on a show with him. She said he wasn't saying anything about losing his house but he was talking to her about restoring this old home he bought and it was going to cost him a lot of money. In the commercial they were saying he had already filed for bankruptcy.
Howard played more of the commercial and they were saying that some people think Stephen is losing his faith in god over this whole thing. Howard said he figured that Stephen was going to make a ton of money doing those Jesus loving skate boarding videos.
Howard played more of this very long commercial about Stephen. They have a web site set up to help get him publicly restored. Howard said he thinks that God is more of an Alec Baldwin fan. He said Alec is pretty much bullet proof.
In the commercial they ask for people to donate to help restore Stephen and that all of the money will go to the glory of God. Robin said ''No it won't!'' Howard read that Stephen has six movies in production so he'll be fine.
Howard asked JD about another clip he had. JD said it was a clip of the creator of the web site talking about why he's helping Stephen. In the clip the guy was saying that Stephen had a lot of offers to do movies but they were roles he didn't want to do because of him being a Christian.
The caller asked Eric why he's using Howard's name to get laid and then treats them like shit when they come to visit. Eric said he didn't treat the owner like shit. He said that it was Rich who came to visit him. The caller asked Eric about some other stuff that he thinks Eric lied about. Eric told him he's an idiot.
Howard asked the guy, Rich, who he thinks is going to do well on the IQ test. The caller said he thinks that Fred, Robin, Howard, Tracey and Lisa G would be in the top. Howard said he had to get going.
Robin wanted to know who the craziest in the news department would be. Howard said the long form IQ test takes 3 hours. He said they have a 30 minute test they could do too but they may go with the 3 hour. He said Gary is looking into it.
The caller said he had JD over Richard on the IQ test. Howard said he thinks that Sal will beat both of them. The caller said he thinks that it'll be Benjy. Howard said he's bright. He said he thinks that Sal will beat him though. Robin said Sal boasts how smart he is though and that never works. Robin said that people who aren't bright often think they are very bright. She said she brought hat up and then Scott DePace was having doubts about how well he'll do.
Eric said he wants to call in and ask Hulk Hogan about something today. Howard said he doesn't want him boring the audience though. Eric said he wants to know something about the TNA Wrestling. He was wondering about the chicks they have on the show and if they're going to add more. The caller went off on Eric calling him names and telling him that he wants him to fly with balloons to New York.
Howard told Eric they barely talk about wrestling when they talk to Hulk Hogan. He said most of them don't even care about wrestling.
Howard said he might put Eric on just to prove that he's right about him slowing down the interview. Howard said they'll do that if things go well with Hulk. Howard said he's not sure what Eric wants from him anyway. He put him on hold and the caller, Vince, on hold so he could listen.
Howard took a call from the guys who were playing clips of Hulk. Howard did an interview with him for a minute asking him Eric's questions. He went to break after that.
Howard came back and had Hulk Hogan come in. He said he must be the most famous and successful wrestler out there. Robin said that some guys have gone on to do movies and Hulk seems to be unable to get away from wrestling.
Howard said he wants to meet Hulk's new woman. Hulk said she was there. hulk also said that he misses Artie. He said he thinks he'll come back an take things over there.
Howard said Hulk looks more cut up today than usual. Hulk told Howard he had some back surgeries last year and they were trying to get them right. He said he had such pain in his back that they were giving him epidurals. Howard said Hulk went right on the air after that too when he did his show there on Howard 101.
Hulk said he did that radio show but they kind of just threw him in there all by himself not knowing what to do. He said there's a pacing and a timing and a flow that he has much respect for. He told Howard he has respect for him and Bubba. Hulk said that they put him in a fighter jet-like studio and he had no idea what any of it was.
Howard said that Bubba is into wrestling now too. Hulk said the fans hate him. He said he has ''real heat'' and he hasn't seen that since the days of the Iron Sheik. Howard said part of the story line is that Hulk and Bubba are feuding. Howard said he saw some of that and he realizes that it's scripted. Hulk said that really went down and it was real. Hulk said Bubba was all over him about something that day.
Bubba got hit on a show one time too and that was real according to Hulk. Hulk said that Mick Foley hit Bubba in a way he didn't expect. He said Mick knocked him down and Bubba hit his head. His nose was bleeding and his eye was blackened. Hulk thought he was going to be bitching about it but Bubba didn't do that like he did when Awesome Kong hit him.
Howard said that name alone is kind of racist. Hulk said he didn't have anything to do with that. He said she's gone from the show now since she hit Bubba.
Howard asked Hulk if he's in charge of the TNA stuff now. Hulk said he's not. He said he can't sit in the office like guys like Eric Bishoff does. Hulk said he can't just sit there and listen to that crazy stuff. Hulk said he does look at the TV sheets and tells them how to change stuff up. He said he owns part of the company though.
Howard asked Hulk about Stone Cold Steve Austin calling Hulk a channel turner. Hulk said he saw him a couple of months ago and talked and things were fine. Hulk said he'd love for Steve to knock him because he could get him on TNA. He said he would still wrestle if he could get a guy like that on the show.
Howard asked Hulk about his divorce and if that's all over. Hulk said it's done but they're still not speaking. He said that Linda is all set to go for a long time. Hulk said he's doing well now and getting himself out of that big hole he was in.
Howard asked Hulk if things are really good for him. hulk said that things changed after the divorce. He said as soon as he got out of that negative thing he was in for 23 years, it all got good. He said it was like he was breathing clean air now. He said he didn't want to go around hating everyone anymore.
Howard said he sensed that Hulk was miserable back at Bubba's wedding. He didn't look like he was having fun. Hulk said things had unraveled by then. Howard asked when he thinks he should have gotten divorced. Hulk said he knew Linda for 25 years and was married to her for 23. He said his buddy got married around the same time and he was divorced 3 years into it. Hulk said he loves his kids but he remembers having a tough time around that 3 year mark. He said he was thinking of getting the divorce around that time.
Hulk said he went to Linda's mom and asked her what to do. She told him that he was the one that married her so he had to deal with it.
Hulk told Howard how tough it was living with Linda in those early days. He said he didn't know that it wasn't supposed to be like that.
Robin asked how he finally realized how bad it was. Was it the TV show? Hulk said he can't believe that they're getting him into this. Hulk said things started getting really tough before the TV show. He said VH-1 came to them and asked them to do the show on a regular basis. He said he figured that it might help them pull the family back together if they had a hit show. He said it didn't work, it made it worse.
Howard asked Hulk when he stopped having sex. He asked if they had sex in the last 5 years. Hulk said by the time they got to Miami it was pretty much over. He said that she said ''f-you'' to him pretty often toward the end and that was kind of shocking. Then she started saying it to the kids and that really shocked him. He said he knew there was a serious problem when that started happening.
Hulk said the thing that really got him was when they were at dinner and she'd say that she was leaving. He said that's when things got really weird.
Howard asked how Brooke and her mom are getting along. Hulk said they're still having issues. Howard asked if Linda is still seeing the kid that went to school with Brooke. Hulk said they are still together. hulk said he read that Linda was out at some party trying to do a cartwheel and the splits and they said it was a very desperate move.
Hulk said that it's really weird that Brooke and her mother are both in Miami but they don't see each other. He told Howard that Linda had texted Brooke that she was an embarrassment and told her to have a good life.
Howard asked if Brooke and that guy were still seeing each other. Hulk said Brooke broke up with the guy. He said he tried to fight it but he figured that fight wasn't worth it.
Hulk told Howard that Brooke is broken up and she's got a ton of energy now. She's on this P90X diet now and she's looking really ripped. He said she's lost some weight and she's looking amazing. He said that Brooke and his fiancee get along really well now too. He said it's really a relief.
Howard asked Hulk about the fiancee and if he had gotten engaged just 5 months in. Hulk said that it wasn't that soon. It was 5 months after the divorce. Hulk said the divorce went on for 2 years.
Howard said Gary saw Hulk's fiancee in the green room and thought it was Brooke. She looks a lot like Brooke. Howard said Hulk has a type and all of the women in his life have that similar look. Hulk said it's just the blond hair. He said Jennifer looks totally different.
Howard asked hulk if he's going to sign a pre-nup. Hulk said they don't even know when they're getting married. Howard had the guys bring Jennifer in after that.
Howard said he'd be happy if he had Jennifer too. Howard said Hulk really did trade up. Howard said he's liking what he's seeing there. He said she's got a certain something. Jennifer asked Howard how he's doing today. Howard said he was stunned by her.
Howard asked Jennifer if she was okay with the pre-nup. She said she wants to sign one. Howard said Hulk is going to be embarrassed to bring it up to her. Jen said that she will sign it right there, right now. She'll sign anything. Hulk asked if she would sign something saying she'll walk around naked all the time. She said she does that already.
Howard asked if Hulk gives it to Jen hard. Jennifer said that he does. She said she's little and Hulk is pretty big. Howard asked if that's scary. She said she feels trapped sometimes. Howard said he imagines Hulk ripping apart her legs. He said he can see him doing that to her. Hulk said he's gentle with her. Jen said sometimes he's not.
Howard asked if he uses his penis like a weapon. Hulk was sweating while this conversation was going on. Hulk said Howard got Linda going one time when they were on the show and it was great. He said that the vibe from her was really weird for days after that.
Howard got back to the sex talk and asked Jen to stand up. Hulk said he wanted her to wear a red dress that would have blown his mind. Hulk said they can't wear it everywhere today though so she wasn't able to wear it. She said it twas red dress that looked like it was painted on.
Howard asked Jen about Hulk tearing her open and ripping her legs apart to get in there. Jen said Terry has his needs and she finds it flattering that he wants it all the time. She said that when they get busy they don't do it every day but they do when they're not so busy.
Howard asked if Hulk puts it in and rams her very hard. She said he does. Hulk told her to take it easy. She said she doesn't think she has a choice. Jen said that it's usually pretty hard. Howard said he pictures him from behind and doing it like a wild animal. Jen asked if he has a camera in their room or something.
Howard asked Jen if she's ruined for life by his penis. She said she would be if he died. She said that she tries to keep herself tight down there by doing Kegle exercises.
Howard said Hulk had better marry her. He's not going to do better than that. Hulk said she's great and her head is set straight.
Hulk told Howard that he met Jen at a health food store. He said he had a gun on him that day. He said he was loaded that day. He said he was walking around looking for toothpicks and he saw her there. He figured she worked there and asked her if she could help him out. He said he was in there about 2 weeks later and saw her again. He said he checked out her ass as she walked away this time. He said he got her card and tried calling her. He said she didn't answer the phone though.
Jen said she was dating some people at the time but she wasn't interested in them that much. Jen said she didn't know it was Hulk calling but one day she just answered the phone. Jen said she has never been with a real ''man'' before and Hulk is a real man.
Howard asked how long it took for Hulk to get into her pants. She said she waited about a month. Howard asked if she needed lube to get his big cock in her. She said that she did. Howard said that's a shocker. Howard wondered why he wasn't able to prepare her with oral sex. She said he did. Jen said that she needed the extra lube because of Hulk's girth. Howard said he must be a big man. Hulk made some horse sounds to give Howard a clue about how big he was.
Howard asked Jen if she would bring another woman into the bed if Hulk wanted that. Jen said she wouldn't but Hulk isn't into that anyway. Howard asked what she'd do if Hulk wanted to bring a guy into bed. Hulk jokingly said ''Hey Bubba!'' when Howard brought that up.
Howard asked Jen when she lost her virginity. She said she was 18 and out of the house. Howard said maybe Russell Crow would be able to handle Hulk. Hulk said they have no negativity in the house on TV. He said they only watch cartoons and stuff like that. He said they don't even watch the news in his house. Hulk said he has a good vibe going and he doesn't want to ruin it. Howard said that can work.
Hulk told Howard about staying at Bubba's house and how nice it was. He said he'd go downstairs every day and the two kids would be there. He said it was kind of depressing because he missed his own kids. Then he went out and rented an apartment after a couple of months. hulk said he loved being around the family but seeing the kids every day was rough.
hulk said the place he rented was pretty open and there was a guy at this bistro who would talk funny to Jen and he thinks that he could see Jennifer walking around naked there.
Howard asked Jen if she likes being spanked. Jen said that Hulk spanks her and it really hurts. Howard told them that they have to have that pre-nup conversation. Hulk said that Bubba gives his wife $25,000 a year more for every year that she sticks with him. Hulk thinks that sounds kind of low.
Howard got to the pre-nup thing again. Howard wanted to help talk it out. He said he doesn't know what Hulk's net worth though. Robin said that Hulk has a certain lifestyle and she's giving Hulk the best years of her life. Howard said that he's taking that into account. He said that based on the sexual activity she's ruined sexually for anyone else. Howard said he's thinking... He asked Hulk if he ever saw Bubba's wife walking around naked in the house. Hulk said he never did.
Howard said he's going to assume Hulk is worth $30 million minimally. Hulk said no. He said he's in the hole by about $5 million. He said they're going to be fine though. Howard said he knows Hulk will be okay. He asked Hulk if it would be fair at the end of the marriage to give her 5 million. Jen shook her head and said that's too much. Howard said that would be after a 15 year marriage or so. Hulk said he's 56 now so he's not sure about that.
Howard said maybe they'll break it down to 5 year increments. After 5 years she's entitled to 5 million. Howard said if it's before that he has to buy her an apartment worth $150,000. Howard said maybe he should do the $25,000 per year thing like Bubba is doing. Howard threw out a $2 million settlement and Hulk seemed to be fine with that.
Howard and Hulk talked about the Jesse James and Sandra Bullock break up. Hulk said that Linda's father had a room full of the Nazi stuff. He said that seemed kind of normal to him when he saw the Jesse James picture. Howard said it's kind of crazy and he wondered how Sandra didn't know about that.
Hulk said he doesn't know why Jesse went so crazy after getting married. He said that he was married to a porno chick before that so maybe that should have been a red flag warning.
Howard said he can see that Hulk and Jennifer are happy. He asked Jen if she's going to try anal. Jen wanted Hulk to answer that. Hulk said that things are good the way they are now. Howard said he thinks that they did try it and it didn't fit. Hulk wanted to get Howard in the wrestling ring now. Howard asked Jen if she thinks about that. Jen said she doesn't. Howard said he doesn't think it would be safe if they did anal.
Howard said Hulk is on TNA Wrestling every week now. The show airs on Monday nights but re-airs on Thursday nights.
Hulk told Howard he'd love to get him and Jay Leno in the ring together. Howard said that's never going to happen.

Hulk had a TV show for a while too. Hulk said he was partners with the Baywatch guys and he did Thunder in Paradise for a while.
Howard asked if there will ever be a Hulk and Jennifer show. Jen said she would do it if Hulk wants to but she doesn't really want it. She said she participates in Brooke's show once in a while though.
Howard had Eric the Midget on the phone so he let him ask a question. Eric asked Hulk if they're going to add more Knockouts to the list of knockouts. Fred played some snoring sounds while Eric was asking his questions. Hulk told Eric that the Knockout girls get really good ratings and it would be a good decision to add more. He said they'll have to see how the budget is before they can do that.
Eric said that he told Jeremy about a couple of girls. He told Hulk the names and Hulk had no idea who they were. Eric started to explain but Howard had to cut him off. He said he didn't want to get caught up in that.
Howard took another call from a guy who asked if his opponents ever got boners. Hulk said they never did but there's this Japanese show on where they do weird stunts and stuff and they have this bald guy who throws people in the water. He said that guy was an openly gay wrestler and he grabbed his sack one time when he was doing a show with him.
Howard brought up Chris Kanyon and asked Hulk if he knew him. Hulk said he had spoken to him not long before he died and he sounded really down at the time. Howard said he was good on the show when they had him on.
Howard started to wrap up the interview but Jen said that Brooke is never going to look at her the same. She said that they were out shopping one time and Brooke somehow knew how big he was. hulk said that she saw him once accidentally so she knew that he was big. Hulk said that they tried to fit him in some clothes and they went out for a facial to do a make over. He got in the shower to wash it off and Brooke came running in and saw him naked. He said she went running out as soon as that happened.
Howard asked Hulk if he buys Magnums. Hulk said they fit like a thimble. He said he's that big. Howard said he buys them too but then puts regular rubbers in the box.

She claims that it was an audition tape she made. Howard said she has to be a little crazy to have been banging Ted Harbert.

Gary still didn't care. He said he wasn't upset he missed out on this stuff when he was younger. Richard kept coming up with story after story about these wrestlers and how involved he was with them.
Jon said Hulk Hogan was really the first one to cross over. He said he got into the Wrestlemania stuff and that was huge. Richard said he remembers them reporting on the big Wrestlemania that had 90,000 people at it, in the sports news. He said that was a big deal. Gary said that they were reporting about fake wrestling in the real news.
Gary asked if they always hang on to the idea that it might be real or do you get to be like 13 and give up like you did on Santa.

Jon took a call from a guy who said it's sad that Hulk has to do this TNA wrestling because he was so big when he was in Rocky. He said that he grew up in Pittsburgh watching wrestling there and it was really big. Gary asked what's so sad about Hulk doing TNA. The caller said Hulk was the first one to blow up huge and it's like these rock stars who go through all of their money and they have to do little venues late in life. He said he thinks that Hulk shouldn't even have to work based on how big he was back then.
Jon said Hulk was talking about how he's in the hole now. He doesn't have a lot of money left. They talked about that and some other guys who were big and now they don't have money left.

Gary asked Richard if his dad took him to the wrestling stuff. Richard said his cousin would take him. He said his dad did take him once and he ended up getting yelled at by a wrestler when he asked for an autograph. Richard said there were other times when he didn't get yelled at by the wrestlers. He said that he was in his 20s and he still believed that the stuff was real. Richard told some more stories about those days too.
Jon took a call from a guy who said he was a huge wrestling fan as a kid an his father hated it. He said his father smartened him up to it right away though. He said he hated that he watched it. Richard said that's not right to tell your kids that. It's like telling them that there is no Santa. The caller said he saw Andre the Giant one time when he was about 12. He said that he tried to reach up to the guy and Andre elbowed him. He said he flipped over the barrier that was behind him and Andre just kept walking.
The caller told a story about a guy who was coming on to him but they had to hit the delay on the story so he had to retell it. He said that he didn't know the guy was gay at the time.
Shuli came in and said that his father used to drop him off to go watch wrestling. He said he once sat next to an old woman who was yelling the whole time during a show.

Shuli said he was just cheering for him in the show.
Jon took a call from a guy who congratulated Gary on his book (They Call Me Baba Booey) and asked if Hogan was really that happy today. Gary said he did seem to be happy.
Jon asked Richard when he found out that wrestling was fake. Richard said that it was probably in the late 90s. Gary said he thinks that they were trying to do wrestling in New Jersey and they had to come out and say they were not a sport, they were entertainment. Richard said he's not sure what it was but he still enjoys the wrestling and figured they couldn't fake some of the injuries. He said one guy got thrown off a 30 foot high scissor lift and he was really hurt. He knows the story lines are fake though.
Jon played a clip from the show where Howard was talking to Hulk about the type of women that are in his life and how they're all very similar.
After that clip Gary said he told Howard after the interview that Hulk seemed genuinely surprised by that. Gary said that she has been mistaken for Brooke before and Hulk even announced it wasn't her. Gary said that the woman are very tall, the same shape and they have a very similar look. He said it's interesting that all three of these women are kind of similar. Will said that it was creepy when Hulk was talking about how hot his daughter looks now. He said it's also weird that he was rubbing lotion on her body on the beach a couple of years ago.
Brian Phelan came in and said that he was down shooting some stuff for Bubba and Hulk was around. He said they were making that Brooke mistake with Jennifer down there that time and Hulk just doesn't get it.
Jon took a call from a guy who asked if Hulk is nice off camera. Gary said he's been pretty nice every time he's met him. He said he's always seemed like a pretty good guy. He didn't know him in the 80s though. Gary said he thinks he's in a friendly environment there too so that might help. That caller also threw in that he thinks Lisa G looks like Garth from Wayne's World.
The guys kept throwing questions at JD for what it would take to get him to do it. JD kept saying he wouldn't do it and yelled at them. He said he thinks it's just a bunch of shtick. Gary said they'll find out. JD said he'll see what happens then. Gary said maybe he'll stoop to fucking her if she's hot. No one has seen her pictures yet so they don't know what she looks like.
JD said he will say no to her face on the air if he doesn't want to do it. Gary asked if any peanut butter will be involved. JD told him to shut up.
JD said the whole thing is weird and creepy. Benjy asked what the right way to approach him is. JD told Benjy he's not going to go down that vortex with him. He said he knows where he's going with that. JD said they don't have to publicize all of this on the news. He said maybe he would do it if they weren't talking about it in the news. They had to go to break after that.
Richard once did a prank call where he ran down a list of wrestlers when he called a wrestling show. Jon thought he didn't have a list in front of him but Richard said he actually did.
Jon asked Gary about the discussion Howard and Hulk had about the pre-nup. They were talking about how much to give Jennifer and talking about Bubba's wife getting $25,000 a year.
Benjy asked Jon what his wife gets. Jon said they haven't discussed it. Benjy asked Gary if he got one. Gary said he didn't think it was that big of a deal to have to give half of it away. Will didn't either and he said he'd be the one to make out in his divorce.
Richard said he hasn't talked about it either. He said they still don't have a date set. Jon asked how long he's going to stay engaged. Richard said some people stay engaged for a really long time. They don't have any plans.
Gary said that he can see people waiting if they're younger and trying to save up for a house or something. Gary said he was engaged for 3 months before getting married. Gary said they put their whole thing together pretty quick. They were both 31 and there was no reason to wait.
Gary asked Richard if he's not going to get married if Howard doesn't renew. Richards said that they may have to move but the wedding wouldn't be off just because of that. Richard said they don't want to have to plan all of this stuff at the last minute either. He said they are looking around at places to rent.
Jon asked if he would do it in Kansas. Richard said he would like to do it at an amusement park out there in Kansas. He said Oceans of Fun would be great too because you can sit at the bar and pee in the pool without going to the bathroom. Richard said he just wants to make his fiancee happy. Will told him to leave her then.
Richard said that they're looking at a place in Queens and some other places that are kind of cool. He said he's going to be involved with the whole thing. He thinks that he'll be involved with the planning to a certain extent.
Gary asked how involved Jon was in his wedding. Jon said he just showed up in a tux. Gary said he was very involved. Jon said his wife did a great job handling the whole thing. Will said that he was given a chore list to do. He had to get the DJ and the photographer. He said that it was stressful at the time but looking back it was pretty easy. Jon said it's the bride's day so you have to do what they want.
Richard said he saw some pictures of a place that does a country theme but they would hold it there in the city. Gary said they should do a Carson's Rib theme and have everyone show up with their white boxes of ribs.
Richard said he's fine with it whenever she wants to get married. He said he'd like to have all of their finances together though.
Jon took a call from a guy who asked about getting Coheed and Cambria in there. Gary said they opted not to have the band on so it's not going to happen. Richard said he would have sucked off Jon Hein to get them on. Jon said he wouldn't even do that for Rush. They had to end the show after that.
