I honestly cannot believe that Howard never got his ass beaten unconscious during his career. The way he talked to guests/staff (especially when he'd rip into Jackie/Fred/Gary's wives), he should have had his skinny ass beaten hundreds of times. Listening to his 34th birthday show from 1988, he's being a complete asshole about how cheap the sponsor's gifts are and saying this directly to the guy who ran Snapple. Calling them dumbasses for listening to Tom's advice not to buy anything expensive. This is no bit. This fucking lowbred rube is a rude, selfish, bastard who never did anything for anyone that couldn't do something for him in return. If I was up there presenting him with a gift and he turned and threw it in the trash, I'd break his fucking jaw. It makes me hate him more than ever.
