    Is there any doubt that these things were purchased in bulk from a service? Aside from being prerecorded, "Casey" never tailors any of his calls to the show by addressing Howard by name, or referencing anything about the Stern Show. (And you know Stern Show writers crowbar show references into every punchline they write -- it's their trademark. How has Casey not yet mentioned that his body is getting so crumpled and crusty, he's being mistaken for one of JD's week-old cum-filled T-shirts?)

    Today's call really drew attention to the fact that these things weren't recorded specifically for the Stern Show when Casey said he was in Peru, but wouldn't be trying Ayahuasca. How could he not have mentioned Robin in that joke? Without that obvious tie-in to the show, Casey's just making a generic reference to a well-known tourist activity.

    It doesn't surprise me that these guys are willing to pay a service a couple bucks for some time-killing material (Electric Eel, etc.). What does surprise me is that these Casey Kasem calls are intentionally non-specific, so that they can be played on any show. Is there really another program out there that's so desperate for content that they'd also buy this unfunny shit?

    Thant makes sense. To get their monies worth, they play them to death.

    I don't think so, because the Mitt impersonator is only too happy to call in and read his Stern-centric script live. We'd be hearing Casey Kasem making outrageous jokes about the gays and blacks and dreaming about being buried between Robin's big brown boobs if the Stern Show had direct access to the guy.

    Who the fuck would email the show saying play more lame Casey Kasem bits. It doesn't even make sense even if you were a super fan. Its obvious Howards trying to get some mileage out of these clips to fill the ETM void. Also the 6:30am break is another new bit that's here to stay.

    Fuckin thing sucks!

    I used to wonder how they got so many e-mails when a longtime fan like me wasn't aware of the address which was rarely (if ever) mentioned on the show.

    Most of these recent "e-mails" resemble the material that Howard was doing for his "monologues" around the time of Leno's retirement. He fancies himself a comedy writer, but it just further shows how much he leaned on the much cleverer Jackie, Artie, Billy, etc. for his material. (That, or these are Benjy's contributions to the show, which would also make Jackie, etc's legacy shine even brighter).

    and laughs at them as Howard reads them.
    just like he laughs when Howard reads one of his shitty jokes.

    exactly what they always bashed Jackie for.

    except that Jackie was funny?

    Seriously, are they still billing Fred as the head writer?

    Howard is a genius how he brainwashed the crew to hate Jackie.
    Apparently Jackie was the only real writer when Howard was taking credit for all the awesomeness back in the funny 90's.

    Uh....I think you're reading into this waaaaay toooooo deep. Actually I like the Casey Corpse bit...it's pretty funny AND clever IMO.....a "service??"
    That's a bit far-fetched.....you can tell Richard or Sal spliced actually Casey Kasem sound byteswith one of the Impressionist's Howard "hired" from the contests.....maybe the dude who does Obama etc....it's pretty OBVIOUS the sound bytes are CASY KASEM doing his countdown etc.....like the phony phone call Richard & Sal did to the Chinese Restaurant etc..



    .....Sal & Richard are HARD AT WORK thinking up these "bits":rolleyes:......since there is NO Howard TV .....no more "visual" stupid bits from these 2 knuckleheads....

    I just think it's a funny ongoing bit.....VERY clever.

    peace & love

    I've heard so little of Fred the last few years except when he says "Huh?" during a confusing or critical caller. Isn't Benjy the "head writer"?
