    I'm pretty sure there is an Opie and Anthony rant about this and other things Howard claims to have invented. I think I heard it a few months ago, but I don't remember how old the clip on YouTube was.

    Well Howard's beef was he did it first and then MTV stole the idea.

    I didn't know if MTV (or whoever) did it first and Howard ripped it off.

    Right after he came up with the idea that Harpo Marx never talk in the movies.
