    (And nothing but regular callers)

    Howig is running scared from the internet and social media. He has clearly lost control on that front so all he has left to control are staff, callers and guests.

    All of the regular guests have repeated ad nauseum, and new noteworthy guests are so far and few between, he has resorted to the only safe path left; the pathetic, sycophantic wack pack who will never talk bad about him. Even Hanzi, who talks shit on air, is very careful about what he says off air. Otherwise he would probably be a vocal poster here.

    The wack pack and regular callers all know their place --- just the way Stern demands it --- and are so desperate for attention and airtime that they will do anything to please the king.

    And what about poor HPE who reveled to Howard that he has publicly talked about suicide and is now cutting himself. Howard ended the interview with 'That's the greatest thing ever...'. Sad.

    And if you cross him...well we all know what that gets you. Case in point: Whatever happened to the brilliant Sour Shoes?? I guess he made the horse whinnying sound one too many times.

    BTW, when listening to some heavily repeated, recent show promo, I think during Sternthology, I actually hear the tapes team sneak in the horse noise from Sour. Out of context it's non-threatening but we all know what he's saying. Makes me laugh every time. There's a reason the WUS hangs up on Sour every time he goes to "the noise" --- and have stopped taking his calls altogether.

    Sour Shoes called in to Dan Patrick a few weeks ago. He's around, just moved on

    Its simple.

    Wackpackers: don't cost him marbles.

    Hiring someone capable of a comedic thought or idea: costs him marbles.

    I read a post here that said HPE got paid for going on the show last week. Is that true?

    Zero effort in doing show. Howard's like the guy who has a job and spends all day in coffee room till 5pm. As long as the boss doesn't come out of his office the guy can get away with it indefinitely.

    Isn't threatening to kill yourself actionable?? Why isn't he in the funny farm for evaluation?

    I like Sour Shoes on the show.... Brought much needed humor and his Gary impression was funny.
    If he's banned cuz of his horse sound, that sucks....

    I don't know specifically about last week but he has been paid by appearance in the past, anywhere from $400 to $700 per appearance plus whatever sponsor money he got. His tax person/ex-girlfriend used to post on AFN and this all came out in their arguments. One year, probably 2009 or 2010 he had a little over $7000 in reportable income from the show.

    I'll ask HPE.
    Also, HPE's been suicidal for the past couple of years. So glad Howard made fun of it.
    If you've ever been on the end of one of Erik's suicidal phone calls, then you know it's not fun or funny.
    Fuck Howard.

    I highly doubt he gets paid anything from the show that's not from a sponsor/contest. I think for the icy hot bit he and boots won a trip to Hong Kong...that's probably the majority of the 7000-though I think that number is an exaggeration.
