    The little mollusk was missing from the Birthday Bash. According to the clips below, he claims it was because both Gary and/or Johnny Fratto "dropped the ball" when making his travel arrangements.The midget takes some brutal beatings from Howard. This is usually a tip-off that Howard will turn around and do something nice for the little shellfish, like flying him in at the last minute. But that never happened.If you listen carefully to the clips, something is missing: ETM's anger. He NEVER seems that upset at not being able to go to the bash.My guess is that his health is really waning. (listen to his voice compared to a few years ago. his lung capacity is shot) The journey to New York would have been taxing and he would have looked like death at the event. I think he wanted to avoid the event at all costs.Sadly ETM is at the top of my 2014 death pool.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5JlB... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eCoFGZgzO10

    ETM was last seen somewhere over Atlanta. He was redirected due to the snowstorm earlier this week. Fedex believes he will be delivered to the ballroom sometime next week.

    I think he just really didn't give a shit about going. There was no one there from wrestling, American Idol, or pornography, so why would he?

    They just told him to call in and act like he wanted to go.

    From SFN. "The "A List" actor who wanted to meet Eric"

    "He's a horribly mauled and crippled little guywith multiple illnesses dependent ( 100% ) on an aideto live ....medication oxygen etc etc ......he was told by doctorshe'd be dead by 30 ...........how angry and antagonistic is he ..really?c'mon more likely he's a frightened ultra thankful scared lil guy ...but how entertaining would it be to hear some mushy scared littlesick midget beg for stuff and then thank the show fulsomely and in an ultrasaccharine manner .....it's all work / He wasn't at the BB because his manyand varied illnesses wouldn't permit a cross country trek ...better story washe just didn't bother to call Gary ..... "

    More SFN Theory Why ETM wasn't at bash..... (pretty good)

    (Howard beating up on Eric for not getting his travel arrangements made)"It was excessive, even for their standards. For Gary, yes--it was about covering his ass. But for Howard, the reason was a sense of rejection. Liked HSS employes that leave voluntarily, Eric didn't bow and beg and plead like every other shit-head wack packer. And Howard loves the begging. It's validation for his career and--perhaps more importantly--as a person.Yet Eric for whatever reason (there's a host of them) simply didn't play along.Make no mistake--if this were a trip to Vegas to get laid, Eric would have found a way to be there...and a day early.But Howard's ego holds special angst for the one that can't be won over, the one that can't be bought. Deep down I know Howard still loves Eric as a personality on the show, but he isn't above bowing down to the King. "

    I wonder if Eric or Beetle got to do something if they were present anyway. The wack packers were greeted at the start, but not much else. Seems like a waste of time and energy even for the midget who sits around doing nothing all day & night.

    He's 10 years past his expiration date. He should've passed a long time ago.
