    on Sternthology today they replayed this segment with Howard arguing w/ this women who "saves" chickens and keeps them on a sanctuary. Anyone remember this?
    Howard belittles the woman for anthropomorphizing the chickens, loving chickens more than humans, not eating chicken...he says anyone that loves animals more than people has serious psychological issues.
    He ridicules her for missing her father's funeral because the chickens needed her...

    The chicken lady might as well be Beth...

    Howard makes fun of every word out of her mouth and while she is over the top (she compares chicken slaughter to the holocaust) her whole thing is saving animals and Howard and the gang have a field day making fun of her. Booey asks her if she's ever thought about helping humans, lol. :D

    Robin says, "if we don't eat the chickens then what good are they?" The woman says, "what good are you!?" leaving Robin speechless aside from an embarrassed laugh :giggle:
    Howard even preaches about how he needs to eat meat like chicken, he has canine teeth and craves it. He even says humans are carnivores (classic Howard the ignoramus statement that goes unchallenged)
    :umm:Wonder what Beth O would think of this clip?

    The cat thing is part of Howie's ham-handed strategy to rehab his image for mainstream acceptance.

    So is the fugly hooker wife.

    I remember this one. Didn't she also compare the deaths of chickens in processing plants to the 9/11 attacks? I think she said something like, "Chickens suffer the equivalent of 9/11 everyday." This was less than a year after 9/11. I remember Gary coming into the studio and stating that everyone in the back office was furious and wanted to come in and yell at this woman.

    she did and she is admittedly off the deep end. The irony of the clip is that if you put the word "kittens" in for "chickens" it could be Howard ridiculing Beth. No, Beth doesn't compare cats being euthanized to the holocaust or 9/11 (at least that we know of) but there are several other parallels between Beth and the chicken lady that make this a crazy listen knowing what we do now. Plus Howard and Robin no longer eat chicken but they poke fun at this women for being vegatarian...etc

    Howard refers to women who suffer "little girl syndrome" as being stuck mentally in childhood.

    While he may be on to something it drives me nuts that he insists he is more or less a psychotherapist since he is in therapy 3 times a week. I've heard him make this assertion on multiple occasions :rolleyes:

    Howard's needy canine teeth have since evolved into beautiful piano keys that have trouble with meat.

    As a result he's decided that chickens are our friends, and we shouldn't eat our friends.

    You pick up so much bullshit if you listen back to old shows. I'm listening to 06-08-01 with Joe Rogan sitting in to promote Fear Factor, and I am convinced Fred
    isn't the brilliant mind they make him out to be.

    Joe told Howard during the break that he passed some kind of Mensa test, so FaFaFoHi brings in a Mensa question and asks everyone.
    Here is the question Booey asked them:

    "Sally likes 225, but doesn't like 224. She likes 900, but doesn't like 800. She likes 144, but not 145.
    Which of these numbers does she like: 1600 or 1700?"

    Howard swore it was 1700 (wrong) and neither Joe, Robin, or even Fred could even muster up a guess. If Fred could answer all kinds of obscure trivia, shouldn't he'd be able to figure out a simple math question?
    Even if you can't do the math in your head, its pretty easy to see they are perfect squares.

    225 = 15^2
    900 = 30^2
    144 = 12^2

    1600 = 40^2 = not 1700.

    :facepalm:

    Fred is a genius, Robin! ....Robin?

    Yeah, knowing lots of trivia/information isn't the same as having a high IQ or being mathematically minded. Howard is a big dope so it doesn't take much to impress him. "What did you get on your SATs?" :rolleyes:

    The best is when Howard (and Fred) were ridiculing Sal over his credit card debt. I forget the exact numbers, but when trying to calculate the interest Sal was paying, Wiggy came up with something like $200,000 in interest from a $60,000 balance. He was taking Sal's APR (I think it was in the high 20s) and applying it monthly. Fred and Robin were helping him with the math and they were all convinced
    he was paying 200 grand in interest. They were so confident, they even had Sal convinced.

    Finally, someone passed Howard a note telling him its impossible since Sal would be paying more in interest than his entire salary. Finally, a caller explained interest to them. They calculated 200 grand from something around $17,000. If someone remembers the exact numbers, correct me, but I remember they were over $150,000 off in calculating his interest :snicker:.

    Boy, was that conversation pathetic.

    That would be a great clip to put in a "Howard is a dumbass" compilation, if a wushdishmeen clone ever started putting together some disparaging compilations.
