    Jackie said Howard always wanted all the marbles, meaning he wouldn't pay his staff well.

    "KJ" good query, I actually posted like a half hour conversation from 05 they had on Howard goofing on Jackie for beating the term into the ground.

    But all it means (and Jackie's right) is that if a little kid is playing marbles the goal is to hoard AS much as you can for yourself. Howard does this with staff budget and salary for himself. Howard's ultimate goal is that HE is the only "HAVE" and everyone else (including his friends and co-workers) are HAVE-NOTS.

    These are three vids I posted with the HSS analyzing it with a jaundiced opinion and Jackie not there. Originally the comment derived from Jackie making an appearance on JIM BREUER where he said (and I heard it) "IF THERE WERE 20 MARBLES, HOWARD HAD TO HAVE 18 OF THEM!" That comment alone got back to Wiggy and the whole marble-madness took on a life of it's own. WE use it all the time as Howard slander. Give this a listen when you can...
