    This morning on Mammary Lane, I heard the bit where he sold it to a girl from Memphis who called in. That was pretty funny! Ah, I remember those days!

    To defend myself a little, I've probably broke even by now , bit I look back and I can't believe how I fell for the hype. I actually believed he was going to go on a nationwide tour to promote Sirius:facepalm:

    He used to be a helluva salesman. Oh he's still out there trying to sell shit, now it's political opinion, but his acumen is gone.

    He tries harder than bababaloney to ignore the shit he did in the past in the vain hopes that people are stupid enough to call those that actually won't fall for his shit again "haters" or otherwise change the subject.

    I'm still saving up to buy Butt Bongo Fiesta. It's a once in a lifetime event and will be a collectors item worth alot of money in the future. What....you guys saying Howard doesn't deliver what he promises?

    What I don't understand is why people continue to pay for THSS. When Artie left it was already on the decline, and definitely got far worse during 2010. By the beginning of 2011, anybody with any sense should have known that the show was just not worth paying for anymore.

    What's that saying, "Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice shame on me."

    It must be about 20 years ago, Howard took a call from a guy who said that he was an amateur boxer. Howard went on to berate him unmerciful, as he concluded that there was nothing dumber in this world than getting beaten up for free. "Ok, so you wake up, you throw yourself down the stairs..................then what?".

    The people who continue to pay for the Howard Stern show must all be amateur boxers.
