Howard started off the morning wondering where Artie was. Fred reminded him that Artie is out on the West Coast today so he's not in. Howard said he started to watch the movie ''Old School'' and it's really funny. He said Will Ferrell is really funny in the movie. Artie also appears in the movie so Howard said he's on right in the beginning and that's about it. Gary told Howard that he's in four scenes and they're all quick. Gary said that you wait for him to appear in the movie and be himself but it just doesn't happen. Since Gary was in Howard talked about how he got to sleep until 9:30 in the morning yesterday for Father's Day. Gary said he also got breakfast in bed. Howard said he hung out with his three daughters on Sunday and all he got were cards. He said he had a nice spread of Chinese food for them. Howard said one of his daughter's told him he shouldn't be doing the dishes that day but she didn't want to do them either. Howard said she attempted to help him out but ended up dropping some stuff on the floor. Howard said they both laughed about it when it happened though. Howard said he had a great time just hanging out with his kids and didn't mind that they didn't get him any gifts other than cards. Robin thought that was kind of strange but Howard said he enjoyed the day. He said he got one of those trick things where you put your two fingers in and can't get them out. She wrote that he could then pull his own finger with that. Howard said he went to walk his dog at one point and asked them if they wanted to go with him. Howard said they didn't want to go so he had to go walk the dog. He said he had to pick up the dog crap with a plastic bag but ended up getting some crap on his fingers. He said he didn't know where to wipe it so he started to wipe it on the wall of this building. He then heard the voice of an old vet he used to use and wondered if she saw him wiping his finger on the wall. He said fortunately he didn't ask to shake hands.
Howard said he ran back upstairs to the kids after that. He got this great Viking grill and wanted to grill outside. He said it's got a wood smoker feature that he really likes. He's also got a rotisserie so you can smoke chicken, turkey or hens, whatever you want. He said the grill is a lot of money but it's worth it if you take care of it. He said it's got a couple of side burners as well so you can cook side dishes while you cook the main meal as well. Robin said she's got a Viking range in her home but doesn't have the outdoor grill. Howard said he hasn't smoked anything yet but he's planning on trying that soon. He said he's going to invite everyone but Benjy over to have some food from the grill.
Robin said she went out shopping during the week and found that they hadn't removed one of the security tags. She said she decided to try and take it off herself. The tag came off pretty easy but it was filled with green ink that ruined the dress and covered her hand. Robin said she didn't know it was going to be filled with ink. She said her thumb was still green this morning. Robin was wondering what Winona Ryder did with those tags when she used to steal stuff. Howard said he'd like to interview her to find out how she did stuff like that. Howard said he ripped a coat he got one time because of those tags.
Howard took a call from a guy and ended up talking about how nice the weather turned out to be over the weekend. The caller then went on to tell Howard about how animals are treated before they're used for food. Howard said he doesn't eat animals... other than turkey and chicken. He said he doesn't eat beef these days. The guy kept bringing up the horrible treatment animals get and Howard was getting sick hearing about it. The guy also told Howard about how The Doors were going to be performing at Jones Beach this summer. Howard told the guy he hated The Doors when Jim Morrison was alive and he sure wouldn't want to see them without Morrison. Howard and the guy ended up singing some songs and Howard couldn't get the guy to stop. The guy was also singing the wrong lyrics so Howard tried to correct him. They were singing ''Light My Fire'' and the guy was singing ''...funeral up higher'' instead of ''funeral pyre.'' Howard tried to correct the guy but he insisted he was singing the right lyrics. They argued about that but the guy wouldn't listen to Howard. Howard kept telling the guy that he hates The Doors but does like Metallica and Guns N' Roses.
Stuttering John came in and said that this guy has been calling in every day for the past three years trying to get on saying that Jackie Martling was on Imus' show. Howard said that's not true and tried to find out why he'd say something like that. The guy went off on a tangent and rambled on and on about Imus. Howard talked about Imus and his wife. Howard said he could give it to that chick really hard unlike Imus. The guy on the phone kept interrupting Howard and said he'd like to blast The Doors for him. Howard told him to go ahead and do it but when the guy came back there were two guys there. One was singing along to the music that wasn't loud enough and the other guy was telling him to turn it up. They were both singing along to ''Light My Fire'' so Howard asked who the second guy was. The guy said that was his DJ friend. Someone said the two of them sounded like Beavis and Butt-Head. Howard went on to ask the guy a couple of questions about the chicks they'd like to bang and stuff like that. The guy ended up asking Howard if his daughter is single and of age. Howard told the guy that if his daughter brought him home, he'd disown her. The caller asked Howard if he had any prize money to give away today. Howard told the guy that if he took his door handle off and made love to the hole, he'd give him $500. The guy said all he had was a sliding door with no hole. Howard took a couple of phone calls while that guy was still on the phone. Some people were talking about how crazy the guy was. One guy said he went to high school with him and he was a complete asshole. Howard said he was getting the signal to go to commercial break but he couldn't hang up on this guy. The guy, Mike, went and cued up ''The End'' so he could sing along to it for Howard. Mike and his buddy were both singing along to it. More phone callers were telling Howard how crazy it is that guys like that can sit home doing nothing and get away with it. Howard ended up giving his $500 prize to one of the callers instead of Mike. Howard asked Mike how he and his friend support themselves. Mike said something about his buddy being a bus driver. Howard ended up giving him a prize of some Led Zeppelin CDs and DVDs as well as a DVD player. Howard had to get him off the phone after that. Mike continued to say how much he likes PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals). He finally got off the phone so Howard could take a break.
Howard bitched about the cold air blowing on him in the studio. He said he doesn't know where it comes from either. He asked the guys to turn the heat up a little bit because it was so cold.
Howard brought up this article in Sports Illustrated about the ABA basketball league that is now defunct. Howard said some of the teams went into the NBA. There were a couple of others that stuck around and didn't want to go away so they were given rights to some of the TV revenue from the NBA. That wasn't worth much back in the 1970's but now it's worth $24 million per year. Howard said he'd love to know what percentage of the revenue that is.
Howard ended up talking about how he used to get outbid on houses when he was working at WNBC by these kids who had money left to them or their parents would just buy them the homes. Howard and the guys talked about people they've known over the years who have had stuff bought for them by their parents or with money from inheritances. Gary said he wishes that someone could have bought him stuff like that when he was growing up. Howard said that when Gary's parent's pass away, he's going to have to pay for the funerals because they have so little money. Gary said when his parents divorced 5 years ago, his father got rid of the life insurance policy he had for his mother. He also talked about how his mother bought a modular house that doesn't go up in value because they're only meant to be used for about 40 years and then they just start to fall apart.
Howard said he's decided to get one of these Audi A8s that he drove recently. He called his buddy Wayne Segal and asked him if he could get him one. Wayne told him it's the best car on the road but the car is hard to get. Howard said the guy he spoke to in Manhattan told him he could have it in a day. Ronnie the Limo Driver came in and said that the guy told him they could get the car within a day. Wayne called in and said that he has calls into Audi's headquarters and they told him it's not possible. Howard said if he has to wait for a car like that, he's going to end up buying something else. He said he hates waiting. Wayne told Howard that the A8 is a really nice car and it's not going to be easy to find the right color for Howard. Howard said that's the trick, getting the right color. Howard said he's been borrowing cars for a while now and he keeps leaving stuff in them. He figures it's time to get himself into his own car again. Wayne said he's going to call Howard later and tell him that he got the car and then tell him how long it'll take to prep the car. Howard said he wants the windows tinted as well and he needs it by Wednesday. He wants one in Oyster Gray with a black interior. He said the silver is ''too gay'' for him and he doesn't want that color. Wayne said he's going to try and locate the car for Howard. Wayne said that he can get him into a black one but a listener called in and said that black isn't a good color because it'll get swirl marks in it. Howard said he doesn't care about driving a nice car, he just needs to get into a car. That's why he's using Wayne from Legend Porsche-Audi-Volkswagen-Nissan... Wayne said he'll take care of it for him. Robin said she has a silver Audi TT and loves the color. Howard said he loves the car too but that color isn't for him.
Howard said he can't wait any longer to get his own car even though Robin told him he could wait another week. He changed subjects and said he gave his father some money for the horse track. He bought him a gift certificate for the track and told him to turn it into a million bucks and then leave that to him when he dies. He said his parents have gotten to the point in their lives where they're just walking a mile a day. He said they walk the mall sometimes to keep in shape. He said his father told him that his mother walks so fast he can't even keep up. She's five years younger than he is though so that might be why she can walk faster. Robin brought up Charles Bronson and how old he's gotten. He has a young wife but he looks like a mess. Robin said he's suffering from Alzheimers as well.
Howard read a story about this guy who had a sex chamber in his basement and would kidnap women from the street and keep them there for years while his dying wife remained upstairs. Robin and Howard both saw the article so they discussed it for a couple of minutes.
A woman from an Audi dealer told Howard she had a silver A8 in stock that she could drive up to him. Howard told her he doesn't want that color though. Howard told her he wants that gray, not the silver. Howard asked her if she could drive it up topless. She said that wouldn't be happening so Howard figured she's a good girl. He went on to talk about how he doesn't want to drive trucks anymore, he just wants a comfortable car. He liked the Cadillac Seville but with his long legs, he didn't fit too well. He ended up talking about his parents for a while after mentioning that he has to put them in the back of his car once in a while. He said that his mother got him a pair of sneakers for Father's Day since they're doing so much walking these days. He told Robin some stories about his parents and their bike reading and stuff like that. Howard had Gary get his mother on the phone so he could talk to her but she was in a rush to get out of the house to go to some Senator D'Amato thing. Howard's mother talked about how she and Ben go walking together at this high school field. Howard also said he had to teach his mother how to ride a bicycle since she was never able to learn it as a child. Howard said he took her to this part and rented a bike so he could teach her. She eventually learned after he gave her some tips. Howard let his mother go get ready for this event she was going to even though she didn't have to be there until eleven o'clock or so. He continued to talk about how he taught his mother how to ride the bike. He said she was taking valium at the time she was learning to ride and once she got off of it, she realized how scary the bike riding was and never got back on one.
Howard talked about his mother complaining about how he doesn't call her enough. He said that's because they don't have an answering machine in their house. He said she tells him there's no room in the house for one even though it's just the two of them in this big, giant house. He also talked about how he didn't get to see his father yesterday but he did talk to him. He said they don't talk to one another about love and stuff like that so his father just thanked him for the card. He went on to talk about how his father gets confused with this answer service he has. He said it's an automated service that asks for a name and then asks if you want to leave a message. He said his father must think it's a real person or something and gives his full name of Benjamin Stern. Howard and Robin shared a couple of stories about their parents and how confused they get with technology. Howard also talked about his mother's hair coloring when she was younger and how it used to look orange to him. He said he was able to convince her that it wasn't a good thing to color her hair so she stopped when he was in high school. Howard said she's now all gray and looks good for her age. He said his father has looked the same as long as he can remember and he hardly changes. He still doesn't think his mother ever gave his father anal sex. He talked about that for a short time. He said they may have done oral but he's not even sure about that. He also figures they never had sex out of the bed. He said his father probably never had her get up against a wall so he could do her from behind or anything like that.
Howard said he's been getting calls from every Audi dealer in the area saying that they can deliver the car he's looking for. He took a call from a guy who said he had a black one with a tan interior. Howard said that was no good. He wanted the black interior. The guy said they can get him one with a gray interior. Another dealer said he had the same car and he'd change the interior for him. Howard had to take a break after that call.
Howard had some voice mail from the guy that leaves racist messages about Robin all the time. In the first message the guy went off on fat Ruben from ''American Idol'' and yelled out ''dinosaur nigga!'' over and over at the end of the call. In another message he went off on Hillary Clinton and called her some names as well. In the third call he went off on the rest of the ''American Idol'' singers and yelled out ''Half nigga'' over and over as he was describing Justin Guarini. Then in the fourth call the guy went off on Harvey Firestein calling him a few names.
Howard said they have ''Stump the Booey'' coming up tomorrow. Adam Carolla will also be ''sitting in'' during the show. He'll be live via ISDN line as usual.
Howard said that Gary called to get Kate Hudson on the show and Howard started to think about what movie she's been in that has made her a star. It turns out she turned them down for the interview. They couldn't figure out what she's done to make her so famous. ''Almost Famous'' was the one they came up with but she wasn't even in the movie that much. Howard said Johnny Depp told them he'd come in live sometime and he's in town. Gary said he hasn't called him yet so there's still a chance he'll come in. Gary told Howard that Bruce Willis has turned them down though.
Howard played some audio of Jay Leno talking to Bob Costas about how he'd like to make up with David Letterman. Jay seems to think that they should be able to get along because they're both making plenty of money and they're both very popular.
Howard said he put on David Letterman's show the other night and Tom Green was guest hosting. He said he likes Tom Green when he's on his show but it looked like he did zero prep to do Letterman's show. He said Tom was just walking around doing nothing but talking about how he wanted to see what things were like there. Howard said there was no joke or anything and he may have blown his shot. Tom got to interview Jolene Blalock which was what Howard was waiting to see on the show. Howard said she was hustled on and off really quick so it was a horrible interview. Howard said Blalock looked so good he was laying on the floor trying to look up her skirt on TV. Howard said he likes the skanky look she has. He said he finds that attractive. He said he likes her acting as well. Robin thought he was kidding but he was serious.
Howard played tape of Bruce Willis being interviewed about his ex-wife Demi Moore. In the clip Bruce talks about how he's happy for anyone who finds love and he doesn't mind that she's dating Ashton Kutcher. Howard didn't seem to think Bruce sounded like he was a very happy guy. He said he thinks there's more to the story.
Howard said Fred Durst is a weird guy and he seems kind of desperate for women. He said he saw him on TV the other day just about begging Angelina Jolie to go out with him. Howard and Fred talked about how she looks like she'd be a dirty girl. Howard played audio of Durst talking about Angelina and how hot he thinks she is.
Howard read an article about Renee Zellweger. She has to gain 40 pounds for a part she's playing so they listed the diet she's on. She's eating like 20 donuts a day and all kinds of other crap. She likes to put peanut butter on the donuts to help the weight gain along.
Howard read another story about Halle Berry suing this guy she bought a house from. She's suing for $2 million and claiming that the guy knew there were millions of dollars worth of repairs that needed to be done. Howard said her husband should be able to fix it himself because he's not doing anything. Howard said she must have low self esteem and likes to have a guy who doesn't do anything for her. He said she evens pumps the gas when they go out. Howard said there are some guys who can live with women who make a ton of money more than they do. He said one guy who's able to do that is the guy who's married to Bette Midler. He and Robin spent a short time on that.
Howard said they got some e-mail about the recent rerun of Stuttering John and AJ Benza almost getting into a fight on E!. Howard said people still want to see the two of them fight. Howard also read some other e-mail real quick. Some people wrote in about the Carnie Wilson interview. One woman said there's no way Carnie belongs in Playboy magazine. A few other people said no one wants to see fat people in Playboy.
Howard read through a bunch of other e-mail about why he shouldn't buy a German car (the Audi) and about the Spencer Grammer interview from last week. Some people also wrote in and said they don't want Chuance Hayden back on the show either. Howard said that happens every time he calls in though. After that he had Robin start her news.
Later in the show Howard was taking more phone calls about this Audi A8 he was trying to get. Sal the Stockbroker called in pretending to be a dealer but when he said they have the sunroof for Howard's nose, he knew he was getting yanked. Another guy told Howard they had the car he wanted, it just had to come from the port and they'd have the car in about a week. Howard told the guy he needed it today though. He spent a few seconds on that before having Robin get back to the news.
Howard said last night he was reading about barbecueing since he got the new Viking grill. He said they don't even call it barbecueing, it's called ''grilling'' now. He said he got some books on the subject and started to read up on it. He found a book that starts you out as if you're a beginner. The book tells you how to do it even with just charcoal. Robin said there's a guy going out on a bus to find every single grilling technique. She said he even says you can cook macaroni and cheese on the grill. Howard said that Al Roker has even put a book out but he didn't get it because all of the recipes are too fattening. He said he has learned a lot about grilling so far. He said he's learned to season the grill by not cleaning it completely after each cooking. He gave the guy a plug and said his name is Steven Raichlen and the book was ''How to Grill: The Complete Illustrated Book of Barbecue Techniques.'' Howard said the guy even has recipes for deserts that you can cook on the grill. He said you can take a peach and cook it on the grill and serve it with ice cream. You can even make pizza on the grill. Robin said she thinks that's the guy she was talking about earlier. Howard mentioned one technique for cooking a chicken with a can of beer. He said he'd like to have an instructor teach him how to do some of this stuff. He said his girlfriend was goofing on him about that and joked that she saw there were some classes on it. Robin told him there actually are classes like that. Howard took a call from a guy who asked him about the grill. Howard talked about the new Viking grill during yesterday's show so he quickly mentioned what brand it was. Howard was talking about some of his friends that grill a lot. He said Richie Notar is one of them and he made some great stuff at this place out in Malibu one time. He quickly told Robin about that and took some more phone calls. One guy said when you use a grill to do a rotisserie, it runs out of propane too quickly. Howard said he's thinking of having a line set up so he never runs out.
The phone caller also asked Howard about how long he thinks it would take to become a male porn star. Howard told him he thinks that guys have to do gay porn first but the guy said he's not into that. He said he should do an interview with a porn star to find out what it takes. The caller said he'd like to start out in it from home instead of going out to L.A. or anything like that. Howard said he should be able to do that somehow.
King of All Blacks called in and said that they have a 24 hour marathon on the Food Channel just about grilling and stuff. King of All Blacks said he didn't know Howard was such a grilling fan. King said he was shooting a TV show down at a Cadillac dealer and they wanted to send a car down to let Howard drive but King told them he was off of Cadillacs and on to Audi's now. King said he had a TV show in the works a couple of years ago but the TV networks that he sent copies to never picked up the idea. Howard wrapped up the call with him a short time after that.
Howard took a call from another guy who gave some suggestions for the guy who wanted to get into porn. He said you can go to these conventions and just mingle with the porn stars.
Big Black called in and said before he got a job he was watching a lot of the Food Channel and Howard used to goof on him about it. Howard said he has a job though so he doesn't have time to watch all of that stuff. Big Black also said that he was ahead of Howard on that stuff as well as the wet toilet paper thing that Howard has mentioned. Big Black told Howard how he's been homeless for a year now and he's been staying at this shelter where he has his own bed. He said they moved his bed the other night so he talked about that for a short time. Big Black said he shares a room with about 20 other ''smelly nig*ers'' at this shelter he stays at. He said most of the guys are honest and don't steal stuff but there were some guys who stole his walk man one time. He said it gets really bad in the summer time and the guys start to stink. Howard figured that he was a pretty smart guy and wanted to know what it's like to be living with some of those guys. Big Black said he's very close to getting an apartment now. He also said that there seems to be a lot of homos there at the shelter but they haven't crawled into his bed or anything like that. He said he doesn't fit in there and that's why he's trying to get this apartment. King of All Blacks called back in and said that he could get him a job in Jersey working in sanitation for $28 an hour. King said he's making like $38 an hour and he only has to work like 3 hours a day. King told Big Black that he just has to be drug free and have a CDL license. King started to goof on Big Black a little bit telling him how funny he looks and how big his ass is. That led to King talking about old men's asses. He wondered what happens to old guy's asses when they just disappear. Howard said when old guys sit around doing nothing, it just caves in. Howard said his ass was in really bad shape and he was able to save it to a certain point. Howard had to take a break so King told Big Black to get in touch with him. Howard told Big Black that he's a smart guy and could have a job like King does. He doesn't have to be homeless. Howard asked him what was going on with that. Big Black said he'd like to work for Howard but they already tried that. He wasn't able to type so he couldn't get the job. Robin said you know something is wrong with him because no normal person would let something like this happen to them. Big Black said he just got misdirected for a while. He said he needs someone to give him some direction... like Howard. Howard told him to call King of All Blacks and got off the phone.
Howard brought up the E! show and how tonight they have that woman who let every guy in the station come in and feel her breasts.
Howard played tape of Jenna Jameson talking about how she regrets having gotten breast implants. She said that she was pressured to get them since she was in the porn industry. Howard and Robin both said ''Duh'' to the tape after she talked about how they want women to look good in the porn industry. Howard said she's pretty funny.
Howard also had tape from Jimmy Kimmel's show where they had tape of Dikembe Mutombo sounding more like Cookie Monster than ever. Howard said Dikembe should sue Sesame Street over that because they stole his voice for the character.
Howard played some voice mail they've gotten recently. One woman wrote in and gave Artie some suggestions for getting rid of his gout. She also talked about how much she loves him. Another voice mail was about the recent audition KC had with a German guy who was taking pictures of him with his shirt off. The guy who called in was pretending to be the gay, German photographer. He goofed on KC a little bit about that. Another voice mail was from a guy who talked about Carnie Wilson's Playboy layout. The guy said he didn't think she looked too bad in the preview picture he saw in the back of his issue of Playboy. Howard said when you see the whole picture though, it's not so pleasant.
Howard said he's gotten a ton of voice mail about this guy Adam from the latest ''Real World'' on MTV. One guy called in and said you can check out some pictures on MTV's web site.
Howard took a phone call from a guy who brought up President Bush and how Howard seems to think that he's doing a great job. Howard said he doesn't give Bush a blanket endorsement for the job he's doing. He said he was just backing him up in the Iraq war. He does't believe that he's doing a great job with the economy and stuff like that. Howard went on to talk about how he thinks that Bush just decided to go after Iraq because of the 9/11 thing. Howard said he agrees with the guy about how bad things are in this country right now and his administration doesn't seem concerned about it. He and the caller argued a little bit about Bush's politics but Howard didn't want to get all political on his show. He had to get the guy off the phone. He took a commercial break a short time later.
Howard said there was this Bum Fights tape out not too long ago and they were charged with all kinds of stuff after having bums fighting with each other. He said the guy who does the Croc Hunter impression has come out with a new tape called ''Bum Hunts'' where he attacks these bums as if they were crocodiles. Howard played tape of one of the ''bum hunts'' and he describes his attack in an Australian accent as he jumps on the guy. He tapes him up and puts a cloth over his head. Howard said he's not sure he wants to promote that stuff but he might have the guy on the show. Howard said they left that guy all tied up when they ran off. Howard said it's a total horror scene when you see this stuff. He went on to describe another scene where he puts himself in a cage and tries to lure homeless guys to him with beer. Then they start hitting the cage with baseball bats and stuff and they have to pull him out of there with a truck. Howard said the beer is like raw meat to the homeless guys. He said it's really wrong but there is something compelling about it. The Bum Hunter calls the beer ''chum'' as if they were fishing for sharks or something. Adam said he doesn't think we have enough law enforcement in this country to control all of these nutty guys doing wacky stuff like this. Check out the tapes at BumHunts.com
The other day this guy Rick called in and told Howard he had some pages from Hillary Clinton's book that didn't make the final cut. He'd read some of the stuff to Howard and it didn't sound real at all. This morning he called back and read the same stuff he read last week where Hillary talks about how she found one of Monica Lewinsky's dresses and dressed up as her by putting on a wig. Howard and Robin still think it's not real stuff though. Rick read them another excerpt from the stuff he had. In this excerpt she talks about her sexual feelings toward Bill. Howard, Robin and Adam don't seem to believe that they're really from her book though. Rick still claims that he was working at this book company when Hillary was writing her book and he got a hold of some of the pages that were removed from the book. Adam said he doesn't think Hillary would ever come clean like that in her book even if the pages were removed. He doesn't think that she'd even entertain the idea of doing that. Rick said he's still going through with his plans to prove to Howard that he actually worked at this book company. Howard let a couple of phone callers through to give their views of what happened. People agree with Howard about how it's not very likely that they're real pages. One caller said down in Orlando they didn't even hear the second excerpt for some reason. Howard told Gary to check into that and find out what happened. Howard Rick swearing that the clips were real. He swore on them and said he'd swear on anyone that they are real. Robin still wasn't believing it though. Howard told him to get them the proof and got him off the phone. For some reason Adam Carolla disappeared as well.
Howard took a call from a guy who brought up the Gary Busey reality TV show that they're putting on Comedy Central. The caller thinks that someone saw Busey getting crazy on Howard's show and decided to put him on his own show. Howard said he got tape of Gary Busey going nuts during a commercial read but when they asked him if they could play it, he told them ''no.'' Howard said it would be a great commercial for his new TV show so he told Gary to give Comedy Central a call to find out if it's okay.
Debbie Schlussel called in and said that Howard was mentioned in the Detroit Free Press. She read this short article about him and also brought up a picture of Slash and his wife. She said someone said it looked like Howard and Kirstie Alley in the picture. Robin said it doesn't look like Howard at all. Debbie also brought up a picture of Ben Affleck wearing a woman's velour jogging suit that made him look like a woman. That led to Howard bringing up Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart and how big of a story it becomes when some of these celebrities start dating each other. Howard said Ben Affleck hasn't been in that many big movies but now that he's with Jennifer Lopez, he's a big star. Howard wondered who he'd have to bang to become that big. Robin reminded him they had this conversation and he figured he'd have to bang Halle Berry or Cameron Diaz. Adam Carolla was back and said that he'd suggest Maya Angelou. Howard said he might have to do Christopher Reeve. Debbie couldn't get off the subject of Ben in the jogging suit for some reason. Howard had to take a break so he got her off the phone and went right to break a few seconds later.
Howard told Jamie that his name is too girl like so maybe he should be a James instead. Jamie said that Jamie is his real name but his father almost named him Jack which would have made him Jack Daniel.
Howard was trying to get Jamie to get some confidence and when he heard that Erica was interested in going to Scores, he told Jamie to take her there. Jamie said he might be interested in doing that but Howard told him to just go for it.
Howard took some phone calls for Jamie. One guy said that all ''she'' needs is some balls. Howard told him to stop smiling as well. Erica was also stuck on the fact that Jamie doesn't drink and hasn't even had a drink. Howard told Jamie that he actually works there at the station so interns should want to bang him. Adam told him to stop smiling as well. Howard said he heard he drives a girls car as well. Jamie said he drives a 1997 purple Neon. Everyone got a laugh out of that. The two of them are going to do lunch but Howard said they may do the make over before the lunch. Howard told Jamie to wear his contacts tomorrow. Adam suggested an eye patch. Robin said that Scott Peterson, who may have killed his wife, is getting mail from women who are fans of his. This poor guy Jamie can't even get a date. Howard told him that he needs to hang out at burn centers and abortion clinics. He said he just has to be nice to the women coming from abortion clinics who are there alone. Doug from E! said they'd even take his purple Neon to get it painted. Jamie said it's wrecked so it's kind of pointless. Adam told him to just take a chain to it instead.
Howard asked Erica how Jamie popped the question. She said he usually comes in and just says that he'll see her the next day. This time he popped in and stalled for a minute. She said she knew it was coming and then he asked her to lunch. She said of course she'd go to lunch with him. She told Howard she thinks he's a nice guy and he deserves the make over. Howard told her she's going to regret it if she doesn't date him now. He said in ten years she'll regret it because he's a really nice guy who treats people nice. Howard started to call him James but Robin suggested just shortening it to J.D. Since those are his initials.
Howard said Lindsey the intern finds him a little creepy. She came in and told Howard that Jamie... J.D. kind of creeps her out a little bit. She said he once walked up to her and told her how he got a 120 on an IQ test. She said it might be the smile too. Lindsey is also a virgin but she's only 19 years old. Howard told her that she should be proud of that. She said she just hasn't found the right guy yet. She said she hasn't even given a guy oral sex yet. Howard told her that he feels oral is more intimate than regular sex though so that's not a big deal. Howard said maybe she's a lesbian. She said she doesn't think that's it. She said she thinks that she repels guys for some reason. Gary said she is a little bit chatty. Robin said both Lindsey and Jamie are looking for a relationship but not with each other. Lindsey said she's too picky for her own good.
The guys were wondering how far Jamie has gotten with a chick. Gary said he knew that he got under the bra with a girl but has never gotten below the waist. Howard said another one of the interns, Rachel, finds Lindsey kind of creepy. She came in and said that she thinks that if Lindsey is a virgin, she has no right coming in and talking about how creepy J.D. is because he's a virgin. Lindsey told her it wasn't the virgin thing that creeped her out and she thinks that J.D. is a nice guy.
Lindsey said she has had a guy use his hand on her but has never had sex. Howard asked her if she's had an orgasm from that. She said she did but Gary said she wasn't so sure. Gary also said that Lindsey's parents are big fans of the show and her father told her that if Howard ever asks her to take her top off, that she should hold out for a high price. Howard thought that was kind of creepy though.
Gary said that Lindsey has some weird ideas about sex and heard her talking to someone about how if a girl takes off her pants, guys think that something is going to happen. Howard said guys are like that and when a girl takes off her clothes, it's going to be tough to just not do anything. He said girls have no idea what it's like to have a penis. Girls can just turn it off and go to sleep, guys will lay there all night waiting for something to happen. It turns out Lindsey will use her hand on a guy and get him off though. Howard wanted to give her some pointers on doing that but didn't want he father to get upset with him. He said some women are pretty rough but there are some girls will lick their hands at least.
Howard had some clips of Gary Garver interviewing Clay Aiken from ''American Idol.'' Here's what he asked him:
Howard had some tape of The Tonight Show where Kate Hudson was talking about some nonsense. Howard and the guys ended up talking about Kate and who her father was. They spent a couple of minutes on that and then moved on to some other clips. Howard had tape of a news report about Clay Aiken talking about his father and how much he hates him.
Howard had another Audi dealer on the phone who claimed to have the A8 he was looking for. He told Howard he could have the car to him by 3:30 tomorrow afternoon. Howard put him on hold to hook him up with his guys. Adam told Howard to hold out for the S8 which is coming out later this year. Howard said he wants this car and he wants it as soon as possible. Howard said this has turned into a whole big thing that he didn't want it to turn into.
Howard had KC in to play the High Pitch Erik game with a listener. Robin wondered what happened to the Stump the Booey game. Howard said the guy who was going to play screwed them and didn't show up. Howard tried to get a player for this High Pitch Erik game on the phone but people had phone issues and other problems. Sean the White Rapper called in but Howard wasn't sure he wanted to let him play. He was having some phone problems but Howard let him play anyway. Howard told him he had a $500 prize to play for courtesy of Wes Craven's ''They.''
Howard told Sean that they have tape of KC calling High Pitch Erik telling him that the cops are looking to get hold of him about some of the comments he made during the last phony phone call Joey Boots did to him. This time KC tells him that he has to appear in a gay porn movie to get out of it. To win the game Sean has to guess whether or not Erik says yes or no to the question. Sean was having issues with his phone still so Howard ended up hanging up on him trying to get him on another line. He lost him so he just played the tape without him. In the clip KC tells Erik about the problem they're having. Erik begs him not to give the cops his name and says he doesn't want to go to jail. KC tells him he'll help him out if he does a gay anal gang bang that he can sell to Stern Fans on the internet. Howard paused it after that and had the guys guess whether or not he says yes to that. The delay got hit when Adam made a joke about it though so part of that conversation was missed. Howard continued the tape and Erik said that he would do it to get out of the trouble he was in. Howard said he'd rather go to jail than do that. Howard ended up giving Sean the white rapper the prize even though he wasn't on the phone to accept the prize.
Howard said that he was watching the E! show where Steve the Intern got a date with Tabitha Stevens. He felt that Steve was even better looking than he is. He said he was watching himself looking at his big ugly neck and face on screen. Then he went back and watched ''Private Parts'' and the close ups were horrible. Howard said it is true that Michael Jackson is uglier than him though. Howard didn't think he was even better looking than Linda Tripp though. He said he fells that he's uglier than her. Robin mentioned Fran Liebowitz being uglier than Howard. Howard said that's true and accepted that as being true. Gary came in and said that Will told him that Howard is better looking than Richard Belzer. Howard said he thinks that Jay Leno is much better looking than he is. Robin didn't believe that was true. Howard even thinks he's on par with the lizard-like Larry King. Howard said he thinks that Jerry Lewis, the way he looks now, is better looking than him. Gary asked Howard if he thinks that he's better looking than George Lopez. Howard said he's not. Robin told Howard that he's definitely better looking than Larry King. Howard also thinks that he's better looking than Janet Reno... but not by much. He said Ozzy is better looking than him even though he's all shaky. Steve Bucemi's name was brought up by the caller. Howard said Steve is better looking than him. Woody Allen is uglier according to Howard but he's on the same level. Howard let the guy off the phone and had Robin start her news.
Steve put the phone down by the grill as he was preparing it for indirect grilling. Howard and the rest of the guys were asking him about some of the stranger things he's cooked on the grill. Steve says you can grill just about anything. He said he's cooked eggs in the shell, seaweed, sweet breads and many other things. Howard knew a lot from the book that he just recently bought. Steve had another one to plug before Howard got off the phone with him. He said they're out on the road promoting the book ''BBQ USA: 425 Fiery Recipes from All Across America.'' Howard put him on hold so they could get the guy's number before he got off the phone. He spent a couple more minutes with Robin and the news and then ended the show.
Howard said he saw ''The Hulk'' and loved it. He said that Robin's boyfriend Mr. X gave him the thumbs down when the movie started. He said he enjoyed the whole movie. Fred said he liked it but it wasn't that great. They all said it looked good artistically. Howard said the ideas in the movie were pretty good too. Howard said there were some slow spots in the movie as well though. Robin said that's where it lost her. The Hulk character, which was created in computer graphics, looked good as well according to everyone. Howard gave it a thumbs up and Robin gave it a thumbs down. Howard said he didn't argue about it with Mr. X because he didn't want to upset him and have a glass of water spilled on him. Howard said he has a deal with movie companies to keep his mouth shut if he doesn't like a film. He said that's why he didn't say anything after ''The Matrix Reloaded.'' He went on to talk about some other comic book character movies and said that ''Daredevil'' sucked. He said he'd give ''The Hulk'' three stars. He told Robin that she might have to go to see the movie for a second time. She said ''The Matrix Reloaded'' was better the second time around so Howard said she might have to see this movie twice as well. A listener called in and said that he was very happy that he was giving his review straight up like this because he was upset he didn't know that ''The Matrix Reloaded'' was going to suck.
Howard talked about Jennifer Connelly's acting and the lead character, Eric Bana's, bad skin condition. Howard thought everyone did a great job acting. He said Nick Nolte was good as was Jennifer Connelly. Robin said she doesn't think Jennifer can act though.
Gary didn't get to the movie preview. He said he wasn't impressed with the commercials he saw for the movie but Howard and Robin tried to convince him the animated Hulk was great. Howard took a few other calls and one guy told him that he's the worst movie reviewer. He said every movie Howard says is good ends up sucking. The guy couldn't give him an example though. Double A called in and asked Howard how Robin and Mr. X behave at the movie. He was trying to find out if the stereotype of black people talking at the movies was true or not. Howard said Robin doesn't talk during the movie. Howard said he had some douche bag sitting next to him at the theater. He didn't know who he was and felt as if he was going to catch SARS from the guy. Robin said she saw Howard take out his hand sanitizer out at one point and started to wash his hands. Howard told her he did that because he touched Ratso's (Sloman) arm and didn't think that was healthy. He had to clean his hands after that. Gary came in and said that no one knew who the guy was that sat down next to Howard. He must have snuck in with the rest of the crowd. Robin said the guy was kind of strange because he was standing behind a pole at one point kind of hiding. Howard said he had all kinds of weird thoughts about the guy having SARS and about touching Ratso's arm. He said he's mental over stuff like that. Howard said it ruined the whole movie for him. The guys figured it may have been someone from the movie company or something like that.
Howard talked about how Robin and Mr. X got a hold of him after the movie and brow beat him about how bad they thought the movie was. Gary said that Mr. X isn't impressed by anything. Robin said they've walked out of many screenings like that when they don't like something.
A listener called in and asked if ''The Hulk'' is a good movie for a 10 year old kid. Howard said it is a little violent but no one dies during the movie so it's kind of lame that way. He and Robin also said that the movie was kind of dark so it may not be too good for young kids to go see. Another caller wanted to argue about ''The Matrix Reloaded'' but Howard didn't want to get into it. He said that he is right and the guy is wrong so he wasn't going to argue about it.
Howard took a call from a guy who was wondering if he went to his ex-wife's wedding when she remarried. Howard said he wasn't there and then joked that he gave her away as if he was her father. The guy didn't seem to get that he was joking though and asked him how it was giving away his ex-wife at her wedding. Howard had to get that guy off the phone. He took a break a few seconds later.
Howard took another phone call from a guy who was having trouble getting out his question. His English was horrible so Howard figured he was from another country or something. The guy ended up cursing a lot so Howard bailed out on the call. H had been talking about this chick who was on E! last night, Rita G, who claimed to have the best natural breasts in the world.
Howard took a call from a guy who said that he's selling a lot of books since talking about this guy with the grilling books yesterday. Howard mentioned this book he bought about grilling that was written by Steven Raichlen called ''How to Grill: The Complete Illustrated Book of Barbecue Techniques'' and it has apparently jumped up to number 1 on the Amazon.com best seller list. Howard said he's really gotten into this grilling thing since he got his Viking grill. He said Raichlen is willing to come out and give him a class so he wants to do that with Scott DePace and some of the other guys. Robin said she'd like to learn about some of this stuff as well. Howard said he didn't know that Robin wanted to learn that stuff. Howard talked about the book and how great it was because it takes you through everything from the beginning. He said someone recorded this Bobby Flay Food TV show for him. He said he's got a whole thing going on with the grill but he's got this annoying chick with him and you never know what's going on with the food because he doesn't tell you anything.
Howard took a couple of phone calls after that. One guy called in about the E! show and complained that Fred was playing the horn honking sound effect too much while the guys were touching that Rita chick's breasts. Howard told the guy they have to do that for the radio because no one would know when they were touching her breasts. Another caller said that he heard a commercial for a comedy show Stuttering John is doing down in South Florida where they billed it as Stuttering John, Jim Florentine and ''The Howard Stern All Stars.'' Howard said if the guy is telling the truth, he doesn't want John to do any more of these comedy shows. He said maybe the guy is lying about the commercial just to get under his skin. Howard said if that is true, he doesn't want anymore Stuttering John appearances. He told John he's had it with him and he doesn't know what he's up to. Howard flipped out on John and said he's never heard of ''The Howard Stern All Stars'' and it makes people think he's going to be at these shows. Howard told him he's sick of his side businesses and if he doesn't stop doing this stuff, he wants him off the show. Howard said John is insane. He said he's told him to go out and do whatever he wants to but it's misleading when they're billed as ''The Howard Stern All Stars.'' Howard said he might have to fire John but he hates doing that. He said he's only fired a couple of people in his career and it really sucks. The caller also wanted Howard to get rid of Artie. Howard said he loves Artie though. He wanted to have a vote among the rest of the guys to find out if they should keep him or not. Robin and Fred both said they love Artie and want him to stay. The guy seemed to think that Robin and Fred are just kissing Howard's ass.
Gary came in and said that the guy was all wrong about the commercial he brought up earlier. It turns out the commercial says ''Stuttering John and the All Stars'' and doesn't mention Howard's name until the end of the commercial. The guy on the phone was trying to tell Howard how ''out of touch'' he is with his audience. Howard went off on the guy for a few seconds but the guy ended up hanging up before answering him. Howard told John he was so lucky he was lying. Gary said John was sitting in the back with his head in his hands freaking out that Howard was coming down on him so hard. Howard said he's glad he did that because it gives him a warning about what can happen to him. Howard wanted John to come in and apologize to him for putting him through this stuff. He told Robin not to feel bad for John because he's not always innocent in this. John came in quickly and told Howard he was right and walked out. Howard had to take another break after that.
A listener called in and said that Howard was a little rough on John about that stuff. Howard said you have to stay on top of John about that stuff constantly. He said no one else would put up with that stuff. Howard said John is still there because he's his pal. He said he's tough to work with and Gary has issues with him quite often.
The caller told Howard that the guy earlier talking about how Howard has lost touch with his audience may have been right. He was pointing out how he was talking about a $5000 grill and about the Audi A8 and stuff like that. Howard said anyone can get a grill though. You don't need a $5000 grill to do some grilling. He said when he was making $96 a week he was able to grill. Now he just has a nicer grill. Howard flipped out and said he really wants to get out of there because he's under attack all of the time. Howard was getting so pissed he wanted to stop the show and just play music for the rest of the show. Fred played some music and Howard kept his mouth shut for about 15 seconds. He said he was going to go home and grill instead. Howard said his head was about to explode from all of that. He complained that life really is annoying. Robin and Howard talked about his therapy for a few seconds. Robin said one of these days he'll have a break through and he'll get over all of these issues he has. She said he might be in his 70's by the time that happens though.
Howard and the guys said that they think Artie will come back tomorrow and concentrate on that one ''No'' vote and not the fact that the rest of the votes were ''Yes.'' Howard took some phone calls and let some people talk about Artie. Howard said he was glad Artie won the vote to stay. He said it would have been a terrible thing if he got voted off the show. Dominic Barbara called in and said that a lot of people have been calling in to get under his skin lately. Howard said it's been that way for his whole career. Dominic said he felt that it was just recently that so many people started calling in. Howard changed subjects and asked Dominic how his step-son liked ''The Hulk'' movie. Dominic said the kid really enjoyed it. He talked about that for a few seconds and then got Dominic off the phone.
Howard liked how exciting the vote was with Artie so he was thinking about doing the same thing for Stuttering John. He said he really likes John but he thinks that he might get voted off. Howard said he might put him up for the vote but he doesn't think he'd be able to fire him if he lost. Robin reminded Howard that they voted AJ Benza off the show after he bitch slapped Stuttering John back in the office. Howard asked Fred what he thinks would happen. Fred felt that he'd end up getting voted off the show. Howard decided not to have a vote to see if John should be off the show. He wanted to do a vote to find out if people like him or not. Robin said this stuff is really hurting John and he's really upset about it.
Howard dropped the John vote and said that he ran into their new program director and talked about how he can't look you in the eye because he can't physically do it. Howard said he thought the guy just didn't like him.
Stuttering John came in and asked Fred about who it is that doesn't like him. Fred said there are just some people who he rubs the wrong way and he didn't want to mention any names. Howard said he was going to have the vote on whether or not to fire him from the show. Howard said he wasn't going to ask who voted to kick him off the show. Howard told John he was going to vote to keep him on the show but Robin told him he can't do that. Howard said he can say whatever he wants. He can always vote the way he really feels. Howard said the vote is whether or not they like John. A ''yes'' means you like him. Howard said he just can't fire John so the vote had to be for whether or not people like him. They only got two ''no'' votes out of about 20 total. The rest of them were either ''yes'' or ''sometimes.'' They threw out a couple of votes that weren't quite clear. John said he wanted to know who said ''no'' but Howard didn't want him to know who they were. John said there are at least 10 people there at the station he doesn't talk to very often. Howard said if the ''no'' voters wanted to step forward, they could do so. Scott the Engineer stepped in and said he was one of them. He said he loves messing with John's head because he loves messing with other people but when he gets ripped on, he freaks out.
John said since he got back from Australia after doing ''I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here'' Howard has been very distant from him and he's not sure why that is. He also talked about how he goofs on people like Scott once in a while and it's an affectionate thing. Howard said he guessed that it was Robin Radzinski from E! who voted ''no'' with Scott the Engineer. Radzinski came in and said it wasn't her though. Howard said the other ''no'' vote would probably never come forward though. Howard had to take a break shortly after that.
Stuttering John was in and said that he was willing to give $100 to the other person who voted ''no'' in the ''Do You Like Stuttering John'' vote. Howard joked that it was him and he should pay him the $100. Fred also said it was him. Howard told John that no one was stepping forward to admit to the vote. Howard thought the vote thing with Artie was great as well. He said he wants more stuff to vote on. Robin said a vote for Benjy to stay or go would be great but Howard said he doesn't want to leave. John said some people told him they should have a vote for Gary or Benjy. Howard seems to think that everyone likes Gary though. Howard thinks that there would be a lot of ''no'' votes about Benjy but he doesn't think that many people care. Robin suggested KC as a vote for whether or not he should be off the show. Howard said he wouldn't like to see him go but he could do it if he had to. Howard wanted to have a vote for Tom to go but there's no way to get him out of the station if he does lose the vote.
Howard had a story about his girlfriend Beth. He said she donated some money to something and she gets put in a raffle. She won a gift certificate to Victoria's Secret where she shops often. He explained how the prize was about $100 or so. There were some other things that she won in the raffle. She won a night shirt and wanted to exchange that as well. She did that, bought some bras and panties with the credit and the gift certificate. She bought about $75 worth of stuff and got another gift certificate for the balance of the money she didn't spend. Howard said she went back a second time and bought about another $75 worth of stuff but they told her she still had $300 worth of credit there. They forgot to deduct the money from the last purchase and gave her another certificate to use in the future. Howard wanted to know what the guys thought she should do. Howard said he wouldn't use the new gift certificate. Robin and Fred said the same thing and said they wouldn't use it. Howard said he agrees that she should rip up the certificate and just forget about it. Robin said she's so honest that she has gone to a multi-theater and has gone in to see two movies but ends up going to pay for the second movie after seeing it.
Howard took a couple of phone calls and some people suggested that Beth just use the gift certificate. One guy said that Victoria's Secret makes plenty of money and they can afford it. Howard said that just isn't right. That's like these people who take advantage of insurance companies because they think that they deserve the money. Howard said he once found a $20 bill laying in a parking lot and refused to pick it up because it wasn't his money. Benjy asked him if he'd download free music from the web. Howard said he probably would but he doesn't do that at this point.
Howard got a note saying that the person who would vote ''no'' in the ''Do You Like Gary?'' vote would be willing to come forward. It turned out to be this guy Louis the board op. Gary was in as well and said he was very surprised that Louis was in there. He said that he finds Gary to be rude, inconsiderate and makes up conversations that never happened and forgets about some that did happen. Louis went on to tell Howard about this one situation he had with Gary. He said Gary gives tours to people after the show. He said Gary once showed some clients this one area where he was working and pointed out everything in the room except for him. He also talked about how strange Gary is when he says hello to him and stuff like that. Louis told Howard that he sometimes needs stuff by a certain time from Gary and tells him about it during the show and then Gary will forget and tell him that he didn't know he needed it that quick. Gary said he feels that he treats Louis pretty good on the show and doesn't understand all of this. Louis was more upset that Gary will just forget about him sometimes. Stuttering John came in kind of upset that Gary was saying that he and Louis were in cahoots over this. John said that Louis came to him and pulled him aside about this so it wasn't his idea. John pointed out that Gary makes up conversations and responses to conversations he's never had with people. Howard said he agrees with John about that and Gary does that sometimes. Howard wanted to get back to Louis though and said that maybe Gary does overlook him sometimes. Howard said Louis has a job where he might be overlooked sometimes and he might want to stop and thank him once in a while. Howard said this was a tough game they were playing today with the voting and stuff. Gary said it is tough because he is Louis' boss and it takes balls to do that. Scott the Engineer came in and said that Gary does this thing where he'll be in the middle of a conversation and he'll just walk away. Howard said this all brought out some good things because he's finding out that Gary is focused on his job instead of standing around talking to people. Robin told Howard that Gary does stand around talking to people, just not Louis.
Josh the former intern called in and said that a lot of interns don't like Gary. He said he was an intern there back in the summer of 2000 and there were a lot of people who didn't get along with him back then. Ralph also called in and said that Louis kind of blends in there at the station and he can see how someone might overlook him. Ralph also brought up the fact that Gary makes up conversations that never happened and it freaks you out when he tells you they did happen.
Howard said it's weird when someone tells you they don't like you. He took a few more phone calls and one guy wanted to hear a vote on Robin. Howard said he doesn't have any desire to do a vote for her because anything could send her right over the edge. Howard said everyone loves Robin. The caller wanted to know what Robin adds to the show. Howard didn't want to get into it because he didn't want to drive her over the edge. Robin said nothing was going to push her over any edge. She kept laughing as she usually does and said they could have a vote. Howard said it wasn't going to happen but he'd let them vote on him. Howard said he knows that there are people there who don't like him. He said if there is anyone there who does like him, he'd be surprised. He said he won't rest until everyone dislikes him. He said he'd love to have a vote on whether or not he should leave the show. He'd love to be able to leave at this point.
Artie came walking in around 8:40 and the guys figured he heard the vote and ran in. Artie said he flew in on the Red Eye and as soon as he got in the car, the driver told him what was going on. He said the voting was the greatest thing ever and he wanted to let the audience vote on whether or not he should stay. Artie said he was out in L.A. Having meetings on some movies and stuff. He said they're talking about a sequel to ''Old School'' and some other stuff. The guys were goofing on Richie a little bit about the fact that he was the one who voted ''No'' for Artie to stay on the show. Fred was doing an impression of him and made fun of him a little bit.
Stuttering John came in and said that they have one intern who doesn't like Gary. The intern said that Gary doesn't learn their names and treats them like crap. He said Gary knows the female intern's names but he doesn't bother to learn the guy's names. This guy, Danny, had to tell Howard his name since he didn't know it either. Gary said there is one intern whose name he doesn't know. He said he went out and learned all of their names during the break earlier. Artie said this voting is great to listen to and he liked what Louis had to say about Gary earlier. Howard didn't want to get into that again but he had to take a break before getting to Steve O. Steve wasn't coming in because his car service didn't pick him up. Howard spent a short time talking to Artie about how he missed ''The Hulk'' and some of the other stuff he missed. Howard had to take a break but he was wondering if they should have a vote on him. They decided to do that during the break. Howard said he'd be voting ''no'' about liking himself.
Steve O was on the phone to talk to Howard. Howard said the last he heard Steve had been arrested in Sweden. Steve said his car service didn't know where he was so he missed out on getting in today. He told Howard when he does come in, tomorrow or whenever, he's got something special for him. Howard said they're very busy. Gary said they have Aisha Tyler, Bobby Trendy and a band coming in tomorrow to thank Howard for help getting them a record deal. Gary also said that Steve is flying out tonight so he won't be able to come in tomorrow.
Howard spent a short time talking to Steve about how he was arrested over in Sweden and what that was like. Steve said it wasn't all that bad. They ended up searching him after he commented that he'd smuggled some drugs in his ass. He said they found an ecstasy pill he'd forgotten about and some pot in his room. They also x-rayed him and found a foreign object that wasn't moving through his system very fast so they held him for 5 days. Steve seemed to find the whole thing funny. He said he's been having a lot of fun lately and said he'd do something special for Howard next time he comes in. Howard gave him a plug for his DVDs and said you can find out more about that stuff at SteveOVideo.com
After getting him off the phone Robin said that she finds him very sexy for some reason. She said it must have something to do with his attitude about not caring about anything and how outrageous he must be in bed. She said she finds the whole package pretty hot. Howard seemed a little surprised about that. A couple of listeners called in and said that they think Robin is cracking and may need more therapy if she's falling for Steve O. A woman called in and said she agrees with Robin about that and she knows of other women who think the same way. It's the bad boy image he has that turns some women on. Mariann from Brooklyn called in and said that Robin has the weirdest taste in guys. She screeched out her thoughts for a few seconds while Fred played the crow cawing sound effect behind her.
Fred played Robin's fake orgasm tape and then played some other porn flick sound effect to play along with Robin's sexual thoughts about Steve O. Another caller asked her if she'd bang Steve. She said things might happen if they were together but she wasn't sure she could just get up from her desk and do him.
Howard took a call from a guy who wanted to talk grilling with him. He talked about their grilling experiences and Artie said he wants to get in on the course this guy Steven Raichlen is going to be giving Howard. Howard asked the guy on the phone about smoking Turkey and how he goes about it. Howard said he's going to try smoking some stuff and he's going to soak his wood chips in beer. Howard said his girlfriend finds it a little scary how much he gets into stuff sometimes. He said he does get a little nuts sometimes. The guy on the phone said the minimum you'll spend on one of these Viking Grills that Howard has is about $3000. He said he has a special offer for any K-Rock customers out in Teaneck, New Jersey. He was also offering Howard some accessories and classes on cooking. He gave out his number and said the name of his store is All Make Appliances. They can be reached at (201) 837-2078.
Howard took some more phone calls and one guy asked how he could get in on this grilling class. Howard was thinking of holding it at a stadium or something so a lot of fans could come in and make a big party out of it. It wouldn't be a comedy show or anything, it would be a party where guys could drink and cook. He said he would ask the instructors questions about the cooking and stuff like that since he's an idiot when it comes to that. The guy who called in also said that they have a ''nip slip'' on the latest cover of Playboy with Nikki Ziering. Howard said they seem to do a lot of airbrushing over there at Playboy and her face looks way too smooth. He also talked about Carnie Wilson being airbrushed too much and how she talks about how she doesn't care how she looks but she still gets her pictures airbrushed.
Robin brought up a story about a couple of guys who got in trouble for grilling a 20 pound dog recently. Howard said that's just wrong. They spent a few seconds on that before changing subjects again. A woman called in and said she interned over at David Letterman's show about 9 years ago and it was horrible. She said all she did was answer phones and get food for Morty. That led to the guys talking about other internships at shows like Conan O'Brien's show. They had a couple of quick stories they shared. Howard also took some other phone calls before taking a break. One guy called in and said he saw that Pam Anderson was out with Tommy Lee the other night at a concert. Howard said he heard that Pam and Kid Rock broke up and Pam may be back together with Tommy. Howard has heard a few things about it and read that Pam and Kid Rock are no longer a couple. He had to take a break right after that quick discussion.
During the news Howard said that Artie was telling him a story about how Sam Simon, who helped create The Simpsons for TV, was showing off his Black American Express card. It turns out there are only about 7500 of these cards in the whole country. You have to spend some ridiculous amount of money on stuff to get one of these cards. Howard spent a few minutes trying to figure out why it's such a big deal. Vinnie Favale from CBS came in and told Howard some stuff about the card and how many benefits you can get from American Express when you use it enough. Howard eventually got fed up with the conversation because he was feeling inferior after hearing about the amount of money you have to spend to get a black AmEx card. He had Robin get back to her news instead.
Howard said they have a big show today. He wasn't sure if he should take a break first thing or to begin talking right away. He said they had another choice... To just get up and leave. He was going to hold a vote on that like they were doing yesterday. He joked that he had a bunch of votes from people saying that they hate Stuttering John and want him off the show.
Howard said they have another horrible weather forecast for the weekend. He said it's supposed to rain tomorrow through Saturday and maybe clear up on Sunday. He talked about how it's become like Seattle there in New York and it's very depressing. There was an article about it he brought up about how depressing it is when it rains that often. For some reason Howard asked everyone in the studio what Gary Coleman's character's name was on ''Diff'rent Strokes.'' Artie quickly yelled out ''Arnold!'' Howard said he spent an hour trying to remember that yesterday. He and the guys ended up talking about how wacky that show was.
Howard took a call from a guy who just saw ''The Hulk'' yesterday. He and Howard spent a minute talking about the movie but Howard had already forgotten some of it even though he just saw it a couple of days ago. He quickly got off the phone with that guy and asked Robin what she did yesterday. She told him she had some health things to take care of after the show. She also joked that she was having sex dreams about Steve O. Yesterday she was talking about how turned on she was by Steve O after he called in. Howard said they got some e-mail about that after the show yesterday. They talked about that for a minute and then moved on to other stuff.
Howard read some e-mail about this Rita G chick who was on the E! show last night and the night before. People were turned on after Robin touched her breasts after all of the guys at the station felt her up. A lot of people were also wondering what her web site address was. (ThaiForYou.com).
Howard got a lot of e-mail about keeping Artie on the show after their big vote yesterday. There were a couple of people who thought that he should be off the show. There were also a bunch of e-mails about Stuttering John and the vote they had on him yesterday as well. Howard read a couple and then took some phone calls.
A listener asked Howard when he's going to start taking some Fridays off like David Letterman has been doing lately. Howard said he will be taking off some Fridays during the summer as he usually does. He and Robin talked about Letterman's schedule for a minute and quickly got off of that.
Howard brought up his TV show ''Son of the Beach '' and how it was the biggest show on the FX networks. He said it used to get about an average of a 1.3 rating when it was on. The network used to tell him they wanted better ratings but he thought they were pretty amazing for the network. Howard said they decided to cancel the show because it was too expensive to produce for ratings like that. Howard said they produced some other shows like ''Lucky'' and ''The Orlando Jones Show'' instead. Howard read some ratings info on ''Lucky'' which got a .6 rating while the new ''Orlando Jones Show'' got a whopping .3 rating. Howard said he tried to watch ''The Orlando Jones Show'' but it was impossible to get through. He said Orlando had on Aisha Tyler and the interview was impossible to get through. He said Aisha will be on the show today so he had to stop watching it so he wouldn't get screwed up and do a bad interview with her like Orlando did. Howard got back to ''Lucky'' and said they're billing it as a ''critically acclaimed hit'' even though the ratings are so low. Howard talked about his show and how they got screwed because of ''The Shield'' needing their time slot and more money. He had to take a break shortly after that.
Howard said that Simon Cowell from ''American Idol'' now has a talking bobble head doll that says a few different lines. He had one and played the lines that he says. Artie said it didn't even sound like Cowell though. He said it sounded like someone doing an impression of him. Howard and the guys talked about ''American Idol'' and how it was a rip off of ''Star Search'' and how ''Fame'' has now ripped off ''American Idol'' now. Howard talked about ''Fame'' and just how horrible that show is. That somehow led to the guys talking about Christina Aguilera and how fat she's gotten lately. Howard said there was a picture of her in the paper today and she's got rolls of fat on her now. He was singing some of her music and said that she's got a great voice even though her songs are lame. He ended up playing a song called ''I Wanna Take You to a Gay Bar'' that they didn't explain. Artie told Howard that years ago he and some friends went to a gay bar accidentally one night. He described that night and how weird it was. Howard said Ralph told him that the best night to go to a bar is on a gay night because it's easier to pick up chicks. Howard said he hears from a lot of people that Ralph is gay and he's just the last one to know it. Howard said he really doesn't think that Ralph is gay though. Artie said he doesn't think that he's gay either. Robin said she thinks that Ralph may not have done anything yet, but he could break at any moment. Howard talked about how he's gone to bar on gay night and it's not all that different than any other night.
Howard played the Top 5 songs to see if Christina Aguilera was in it. He played a couple of real songs and threw in some song parodies like ''You Always give me a boner,'' ''What if Fred Was One of Us,'' and ''Their Hair.'' He played the real top 5 in there with those songs. Here's the list:
Howard brought up Tom Chiusano and how he really is a nice guy even if he complains about him on the show. He said Tom goes out to Montana for vacation each year and takes pictures of the land. He said he always comes back and shows people the pictures and they always suck. Howard said he asked Tom not to talk to him about his vacation but Tom ended up bringing him a nice t-shirt. When he brought it home he found out it was a medium. He gave one to Gary as well and that turned out to be a small. Howard said he thought it was a thoughtful gift until he found out how small it was. He was actually going to wear it but then he found out it was only a medium. He's 6'5'' tall! Gary said that maybe Tom got the shirts for free from someone out there. Robin said Tom came to her and told her that he had more shirts on the way so she could have one as well. Robin said she didn't know that he'd given other people the shirts so he could have just gone on his way and not told her about it. She said he's a really weird guy. She also pointed out that he gave Howard a gift that's useless. Artie wanted Gary to put on the shirt just so they could see how bad he looked in the thing. Gary had given the shirt to Will in the back office so he said he'd go see if he still had it.
Robin brought up how Tom goes out to Montana and fishes but they're not allowed to keep the fish. They have to throw them back so Robin said she asked him why he annoys the fish like that. She and Howard talked about how odd that is as well. The guys were all goofing on Tom and the lame stories he tells them over and over again. After doing that for a couple of minutes Howard had to take another break.
Howard moved on and brought up his father who sent along an article where Howard was mentioned. Howard said his mother read it to him over the phone. In this article they were talking about how fast Hillary Clinton's book was selling and made it seem like it was selling faster than Howard's book did. Howard said there was no fact behind that though and checking facts doesn't matter anymore. Howard said this woman really needs to check her facts before she prints something like that. Howard said Clinton appeared at the same book store he made his big appearance at. Her book signing wasn't as big as his and she only spent about 3 hours there. Howard said his book signing was more than a book signing, it was like Woodstock. Howard ended up talking about Bill Clinton and how he's been rumored to have been hanging around with some billionaire woman lately. Howard said he pictures the two of the Clintons living in separate rooms with Bill having pictures of hot chicks hanging on his walls. He and Robin talked about that for a short time and tried to find out if this billionaire woman is hot or not. The guys were also talking about how odd it is for a woman her age to have billions of dollars. Howard read through some articles about her and found out that the money came from her father.
Howard said he had a serious thing to plug. He said on June 29th there's a race in Central Park for people who are sick. He read this article about that and gave out the info about when it takes place and where to register.
Howard read a note from Ian Spiegelman who was supposed to call in this morning. He was going to promote his book but he's sick this morning and couldn't call in. Howard said he hasn't had the chance to read his book because he's too busy reading the barbecue books that he's been talking about lately. He said he was on the web all last night reading stuff about barbecuing and his girlfriend was bothered by that. He told Robin that Scott DePace tried smoking a turkey but it didn't have that smokey taste in the middle. Howard gave him some tips on how to cook it even though he hasn't actually cooked anything himself yet. He's just been reading about it. DePace came in and told Howard how he wanted to smoke this turkey while it was on a rotisserie but the two things wouldn't work together. DePace also told Howard that Bobby Flay sent over some spices and sauces for his grilling. Howard said he doesn't want them because he wants to make his own stuff. Howard said he wants to put together a ''Grill-Stock'' at a big stadium so they can have tons of fans there. He wants to get this guy Steven Raichlen and people like Bobby Flay to do a show with him where they could teach people how to grill. Howard talked to Scott DePace about the turkey smoking and how he should have done it. Robin was wondering what ''grilling'' actually is. She thought that you had to grill over charcoal. Howard said you can even grill over a fire in your fireplace during the winter if you don't want to go outside. Howard said this weekend he's making some chicken and mushrooms with scallions on his grill. DePace said he tried making some asparagus with Italian Dressing. Howard gave him some better ingredients to use. He also talked about some of the other things he'll be making when he grills this weekend. He said the only problem is the fact that he's going to be the one doing the cooking and he knows that it's going to be a mess.
Howard said over at KLSX they took a poll about who people think is the best member of the show. They had Artie, Robin, Gary, Fred and Stuttering John as the choices. The winner turned out to be Artie who got 56 percent of the votes. Robin came in second with 19 percent while Gary and Fred tied with 9 percent. Stuttering John came in last with the final 7 percent. Howard interrupted that conversation to bring in this guy Scott from the band Gloritone.
A listener called in and said he really liked the Gloritone songs that Howard was playing earlier. Howard said he'd sign them himself if he had a record company.
Actress Aisha Tyler came in to talk to Howard. He said that she's the first black woman to have a substantial role on ''Friends.'' Howard talked about how big this is for Aisha's career. She said they were looking for someone good for the role and they weren't just looking for a black woman. Howard said it is kind of odd to see Ross making out with a black woman on ''Friends.'' Aisha gave Howard some statistics about how a lot of people date outside of their race. They spent a few seconds on that. Howard pointed out how she doesn't really have that stereotypical black way of speaking so he asked her if she was goofed on as a child. She said she grew up in a black neighborhood but she went to a white school. She told Howard she didn't hate being a black kid but she was an outcast because of the schooling. Howard told Aisha about how he grew up in Roosevelt and went to a black school. Howard wondered what his parents were thinking. He knew what Aisha's parents were thinking. Aisha said kids in her neighborhood would call her ''whitey'' and other names like that because she went to the white school. Howard asked her if she's bi-lingual like Oprah Winfrey is when she's talking to a black person on the show. She said she's not as drastic as Oprah is. Howard said Robin isn't bi-lingual and seems to speak the same way around everyone.
Howard asked Aisha if she knew of anyone she beat out for the part on ''Friends.'' Aisha said she saw Lisa Bonet at the audition and talked about that for a few seconds. Howard said Aisha used to be on E!'s ''Talk Soup'' and asked her what happened to the show. She said it just went away and she wasn't sure why. Howard said he heard that she has said some stuff about the show behind the scenes but she didn't want to talk about it on the air.
Howard asked Aisha about her marriage of 9 years and if she ever gets horny for other guys. She said she thinks that everyone is attracted to other people in their lives so that's a normal thing. She said she doesn't have affairs with anyone outside of her marriage though. Howard said he pictures her with someone like Colin Powell or someone like that. Howard asked her if she thinks that she'll be with that guy for the rest of her life. She said she thinks that is possible. She's been married to the guy since she was 21 years old. He asked her about how she keeps her sex life alive and stuff like that. She wasn't talking about that stuff much though. Howard wondered if her husband's parents were freaked out when they found out she was a black woman. She said there was some adjustment for the families to make but it wasn't that bad. Howard wondered if her parents were upset that she married a white guy. She said she'd dated a lot of guys and they didn't mind it. Aisha said she started having sex around the age of 16 or 17 and met her husband when she was only 19. Howard asked her how many guys she actually had sex with before she met this guy. He found out it was about 3 or 4 guys.
Howard gave Aisha a plug for her gigs at Carolines on Broadway tonight through Saturday. He quickly did that and then got back to the ''Friends'' discussion. He asked her some questions about the other stars on the show and tried to get her to badmouth some of the people from the show. Howard asked Aisha if she finds Jennifer Aniston to be a ''butter face.'' Aisha said she doesn't know what that means though. Howard explained to her that it means everything is good but her face. She just laughed and said Jennifer is lovely. Howard also said that Lisa Kudrow must be upset that she's on the show because her skin is so smooth and not wrinkled and Lisa is like 40 years old.
Howard went through a bunch of other stuff with Aisha and asked her about her breasts and if they're real or not. She said they are real but when Howard asked her what her cup size is, she wouldn't answer.
Howard took some phone calls for Aisha and one guy asked her if she likes anal sex. She said they talked about that last time she was on and she doesn't like ''poop sports'' so she's not into it. A few other phone callers got through and made some racist comments to her as a goof. Howard started to wrap up the interview and talked about her comedy show for a couple of minutes before ending it. Artie said he didn't know that Aisha was a stand-up comedian. He said she's easily the hottest stand-up comedian he's ever seen in his life. He said you don't see chicks that hot hanging around comedy clubs that often. Howard took a break after those nice comments from Artie.
A listener asked Howard which obsession of his will last longer, the grilling or the bicycle riding. Howard said he's not even sure because he hasn't grilled yet. He said it could be over tomorrow for all he knows. He said he's not even sure this obsession will last as long as his bicycling obsession did.
Howard whipped through some more calls and one guy said that Rick Ocasic is one ugly dude. Howard said he is an ugly guy and is uglier than him but not by much. He said Rick is a nice guy but he is a little uglier. Howard took a few other calls and let people talk about a bunch of stuff. One woman was giving Howard her whole life story so he just hung up on her. Another guy brought up the Olsen Twins who were on TV last night. He thought they were really hot but Howard said he thinks they're getting to a stage where they're a little odd looking.
Howard moved on to Bobby Trendy after that. Bobby has appeared on the Anna Nicole Smith show and he appears to be an authentic ''wacko.'' Howard said the guy is so much gayer than even Mark Harris is. Artie said Mark is like Clint Eastwood compared to Bobby. Bobby was wearing lip gloss so Howard told him how disturbing that was. Howard told him he was ''gay squared'' and made sure he really was gay before moving on. Bobby said he's so busy with his business, he doesn't have much time to look at others. He said he came out of the closet at the age of 20 though. He told Howard he's more of a woman in a gay relationship. Howard talked to him about that and tried to find out what his life was like in high school. He asked him if he was molested or anything like that. Bobby said he wasn't. He also told Howard that he hasn't had a man since he started doing Anna Nicole's show.
Howard asked Bobby if he does drugs or anything like that because he seems a little ''fogged out.'' Bobby claimed that he's never been high. Howard moved on and asked him what his ethnic background is. He said that he's Asian. They went through a bunch of other things quickly as well. Howard said he was trying to understand everything and was being overwhelmed by it all. Bobby told Howard about how Carmen Electra was the first celebrity to take the risk of using him to design some stuff for her. He used to work at K-Mart and eventually opened up his own store. He said he bought a lot of close-out clothes and would sell that. Carmen took the risk and paid him about $100,000 to do her whole house over. He said he puts the money back into the business so he's really not a millionaire now. Bobby talked to Howard about how beautiful Carmen Electra is. He said he's not attracted to her though. Howard asked him what kind of guys he's into and what celebrity he'd like to bang. He didn't have an answer to that though.
Howard took a bunch of phone calls for Bobby but just about everyone was goofing on him. One guy said that guests like this make it tough to be a fan of the show. The guy complained about Howard having on Aisha and then Bobby Trendy.
Howard asked Bobby about some of the other celebrities he's decorated for. He said he has clients like Daisy Fuentes, Mandy Moore, Jennifer Lopez, Cypress Hill members and Jamie Kennedy. He also said he has a TV show in the works. Howard gave him a plug for his web site BobbyTrendy.com and started to wrap up the segment. Bobby told Howard he's working on a CD as well. Howard played a little bit of that while Bobby sang along. It was horrible. Bobby also said he has a book coming out but Howard didn't get into that with him. He wrapped up the interview and took a break right after that.
Howard brought up a news story about a couple of 9 year old girls who were molested by their gym teacher. He read the story and the teacher would play a game of ''monster ball'' with one girl where he'd put her hand on a ball and rub it up and down on his crotch so her hand would hit his genitals. Howard said if you hear that your kid is playing Monster Ball, get them out of the class.
Howard and Robin talked about the Pam Anderson and Kid Rock story they mentioned yesterday. Howard said he knew that the two of them wouldn't last as a couple after Pam found out she had Hepatitis C. He predicted that they'd break up but he didn't want to get too much into that.
Howard brought up their program director who used to be known as Chuck Roast when he worked at other stations. They were goofing on the guy because he has some eye problems and can't look people in the eye. Howard said the guy wrote them a letter about his condition and said he's physically unable to look people in the eye because of this condition. Howard said the guy seems like a nice guy. He and the guys were goofing around with the guy's problem but it was all in fun. Howard joked that ''Chuck'' is the only one lucky enough not to be able to see Tom Chiusano's vacation pictures.
Howard quickly played a Mr. Skin Minute from MrSkin.com. In the weekly reports, Mr. Skin talks about the latest nude scenes in theater releases and DVDs. This week Mr. Skin reported that Jennifer Connelly does't get naked in ''The Hulk'' but if you do want to see her breasts, you can rent the 1990 movie ''The Hot Spot'' where she shows off her ''Flesh Gordons.'' Mr. Skin also said out on DVD this week is ''Me Without You'' featuring Michelle Williams from ''Dawson's Creek.'' He said she doesn't show off her ''creek'' but you do get to see her breasts while she's in a tub with another woman 13 minutes in. Mr. Skin also had a personal pick of the 1976 movie ''Emanuel in America'' in which there's plenty of full frontal shots as well as a scene were a woman uses her hand on a horse. You can find clips and stills from all of these movies on MrSkin.com. After playing the clip Howard thought that Mr. Skin was kind of cheating talking about soft-core porn movies like ''Emanuel in America.''
Howard played a clip from Oprah Winfrey's show where this woman talks about how she couldn't live without the book club Oprah had. Howard said it's ridiculous that these women can't pick up the best seller list from the NY Times and pick a book themselves, they have to have Oprah pick one for them. Howard said those women should be ashamed of themselves basing their lives on a book club like they were saying.
Howard said next week Jenna and Heidi from ''Survivor'' will be in to promote their Playboy layout. Simon Cowell from ''American Idol'' will also be in. He said they're going to have Staind performing live soon as well.
Howard had to give away a bunch of stuff today before he left. KC came in with some of his games. Howard took a call from a guy who wondered where Howard will retire to when he retires. He said he will stay in New York because his whole family is there. He said he may spend some time in Arizona as well. He said he will be directing films and stuff like that when he retires from radio. Fred said he'll stay in New York as well. Robin said she'll be retiring to the Southern California area. Gary came in and wondered how often they'd get to see each other after they retire. Howard said they'll probably see each other once in a while but it won't be often. He said he'd probably never see Gary again. Gary said he really likes Howard though so he'd like to see him. Howard said he doesn't know what he'd do with Fred. Howard said he doesn't know that the end of the radio show would break everyone up though. He said they may do something in another medium. He said he thinks KC will be a coal miner. Gary brought up how in shape KC is. He said they have this company come in to weigh them in for this weight loss challenge they're doing off the air and KC looks like a magazine model. Robin wanted to see KC's body but KC didn't want to show her his muscles. The guys convinced him to go in and show Robin so he eventually did it. Robin said it was really nice even though he put his shirt back on too quick.
Howard had KC play one of his games with this caller they had on the line. KC gave him a choice to play a ''Circumcised or Uncircumcised'' game or and ''80's Song'' game. The guy chose the 80's Song game. KC had lyrics to a song and the guy had to guess which song it was. Here are the lines:
Howard and the other guys in the studio spent 5 minutes trying to guess what the funny thing about his relative was. What a waste of time. It turns out Vinnie's big secret was that he has a black cousin with the same name as him. Howard couldn't believe they wasted their time trying to guess such a dumb story. Howard said both Gary and Vinnie were insane thinking that was a great secret. Vinnie said he actually had 3 secrets. One of the other ones was that he has two brothers by the name of Anthony. One is a half brother. Again, no one cared one bit about his dopey secrets. Howard then decided to find out how much Vinnie weighs. Everyone bet on how much he'd actually weigh. They put in $20 each and guessed a number. Whoever came closest would win $140. Everyone argued about how they were betting but finally agreed on whoever came closest instead of over/under. Here were the guesses... keep in mind that Vinnie is only 5'6'' tall:
Howard then decided it was time to weigh Gary because he's gotten fat lately. Gary didn't want to do it but Howard convinced him to just get on the damn scale after telling him he wasn't asking him to show his penis or anything. Here are the guesses for 5'8'' tall Gary:
Howard spent a few minutes discussing Gary's weight problem with him but that soon changed to a discussion about Stuttering John's usage of prescription drugs and alcohol among other things. John defended his drug usage and kept goofing on Gary's weight and how much he eats every day to take attention away from himself.
As Howard was getting ready to go to break he someone asked Richard Jeni if he'd spoken to Jackie the Joke Man about taking his place in his seat today. Other's have done so for some reason. That led to a quick discussion about what Jackie is up to and how he feels funny about going to parties where people from the show will be. Howard said he wouldn't feel funny about running into Jackie at all. Jackie left the show and Howard's fine with that. Stuttering John has spent some time with Jackie lately. He said that the Joke Man has stopped drinking alcohol! John says that Jackie looks really fit and trim now that he's stopped drinking.
One other thing about today's show. Kimmi from ''Survivor'' was supposed to come in for some reason but she didn't show. After 9am Howard said that if she showed up Gary was to send her home because she missed her window of opportunity.
