Did the pussification of Stern happen all at once or gradually?

    Trying to remember when it all started, and with what.
    There were many stages (not necessarily in correct order):

    • Stopped using "fag"
    • Stopped using "ni**er"
    • Changed homo room to homosexual room
    • Stopped doing gay stunts because dumb monkey Gary thinks it anti-gay
    • Stopped using gay sound drops
    • Stopped using clucking-chicken drop for mexican callers
    • Stopped using 'beautiful balloon' on sitar for indian callers
    • Changed 'retard' to various other stupid bullshit
    • Changed 'drunk' to boring
    • Sucks the ass of everyone he used to be honest in his hate for
    • ??
    Can we pin it to a specific date/era when the transformation began?

    The movie was probably the very beginning of it. Once mainstream showbiz cracked the door for him, Howie was eager for the most profitable way to sellout.

    I disagree - the tipping point occurred when Howard got his first book deal, back in 1992. That was when Howard had to start normalizing his relationships with the mainstream media - after all, he now needed critics to like him. We didn't know at that time, but that was when the HSS started to go downhill. It went slowly at first but it picked up a lot of speed when he entered negotiations to make Private Parts, the movie. He got his first real taste of Hollywood and wanted to be accepted. He was never the same rebel again.

    The Jeff the drunk thing really boggles my mind. How is calling a drunk unPC!?!? Was he born that way!?!? Did he have no choice in his place in life!?!?

    What about crack head bob. Do they have a new name for him?!?

    The crack head Bob story was all fake anyway. He has Cerebral Palsy. Watch his first appearance on the show- waiting on line for an autograph for the private parts book. They refer to him as the C.P. guy.
    He used to stand at 7-11 on montauk hwy in lindenhurst and ask for cigarettes and/or change. He was born that way, we all knew him.

    Oddly enough, I think it stated after he got to Sirius.
    He finally got to a place where they could do their "thing" unedited and they stopped being edgy.
    But, I do believe it did kind of begin with the movie.
    It really went south after the move.

    That's all peachy keen and all, but I was asking if they still refer to him as crackhead bob or if they had a new "nicer" name for him

    And Bobo is from Lindenhurst as well. The docks where he used to call from are in the south side of montauk hwy(27A) near Copiague.

    Kinda fucked up then that they used him in an anti-drug PSA. Typical though for for do-gooders to believe lies are OK if in service of a proper cause.

    I thought they assumed CP when they first met him, then what really made him a mess later came gibberishly out.

    So specifically what was the first thing to go after the movie or the book? That was a long time before Yok...er, I mean Beff.
