- Actor/Writer Billy Bob Thornton only eats with plastic disposable utensils at restaurants because they're cleaner than stainless steel. He also used the plastic at home.

After the game Howard moved on to the Pamela Anderson story. Chuck went on to tell Howard that he and Pam are just friends that met through a mutual friend. Pam just happened to be in Las Vegas at the time of the fight so she was invited to go with Chuck and their mutual friend. Howard made a big fuss over nothing. Chuck said he's never slept with Pam. After that Howard took a couple of phone calls from listeners who just want to fight Chuck. This happened the last time Chuck was on the show. Guys just want to fight him. Chuck doesn't want to fight any of these guys but said he may do a real fight in the future and hinted that it may be with Jean Claude VanDamme. Right now Chuck is appearing in the HBO show ''Oz'' so he doesn't need to fight and make a mess out of his face. Chuck told Howard that ''Oz'' starts it's 3rd season on February 3 and they've doubled the number of shows for this season. Howard says the show is really good.
