I recall people calling in to say they had to stop driving because they were laughing so hard.
do you recall the people that spit their coffee on their computer screens as well?
they were lying too
Traffic accidents spiked upwards on the days Howard said his hair was real, that he was the most honest guy around and that 60% of satelite radio subscribers tuned in to his show. Excessive laughter was the most cited cause on those days.
I have to say Niggawhat with Artie and Gilbert going back and forth had me laughing hard as hell in the car. Hysterical.
Jim Rome used that spitting coffee on the computer screen thing too. Honestly, I don't think any email or phone call into any of these shows is real.
I have. It was when Kathleen Turner was doing The Graduate on Broadway. Howard and Artie were goofing on her voice and the fact that she was doing a nude scene. I almost lost control and crashed into a car in front of me. I had to pull over and wait about five minutes. Artie almost killed me.
Same thing when Artie was doing the Saber Dance bit when Courtney Love was in studio. I drove into a parking lot off of Jericho Turnpike because I knew I couldn't drive due to laughing so hard.
You have no idea how sad that makes me...
it's all a dirty lie
Yes. Marge Shotz did it for me. Still funny 20 years later. Alas no more from this incarnation of the show.
Refresh my memory...what was the saber dance bit?
I had to once, but it wasn't Howard.
When I was in high school Kevin Matthews was imitating and teasing a few Chicago Bear friends of his. 2 of the Bears happened to be downtown at the time and one of them was Steve McMichaels.
They pretty much invited themselves onto the air and McMichaels was punching Kevin in the gut every 5 minutes. He would lose track of time and people would call in to remind him.
I've forgotten the specifics but I was laughing so damn hard I couldn't keep my eyes open. I was just in a residential neighborhood so I pulled over and listened for a bit.
I think it's true.
I mostly took the train as a commute, and the show would have me cracking up to the point i had tears, so I see how people would need to pull over.
I also dropped a piece of sheetrock I was holding in place on my uncle when he was trying to screw it into place on a ceiling because I cracked up over something.
I pretty much did listening to Fred and Howard torture Eric the Shitcock for selling Zero Point Zero WNBA Meet N Greet tickets. Luckily I was in the driveway of a vacant property I was inspecting so nobody had to call the cops.
And even into 2008, 2009, The Nag would borrow my car to run errands and sit in it for 10, 15 minutes "waiting to hear how it ended". And she's on record as referring to Wiggy as a "minimum wage Morning Zoo guy at best". (plus she had her own radio show at 18 so she's got a tad more street cred than most of us)
I wasn't driving at the time, but Artie's pig story had me laughing in the middle of a store when I heard it.
wigward pissed on us, & we laugh & call him for who he has become?
When they talk about Beth's failing TV gigs, I almost drive off the road laughing too.
