They joke and jest, but he also cuts people off when they get abusive on calls and these folks usually end up pretty well off. Today they did a rerun of his show where he met High Pitched Eric. Now Eric is a regular guest and does legitimate commentary all the time. Howard and Co. loved Hank and on many occasions went out of their way to help him.
