    How was summer camp and BU one of the most expensive private university's in America Howigatio Alger ? I like the understated Ben Stern. Howard essentially demeans his Dads Hard work by intimating he was poor to mid class actually mid to upper I bet.

    Yeah, he was solidly middle class, if not upper middle class with responsible parents who saved for him and paid his way. His mother stayed home and doted on him his entire childhood. He's a ridiculous human being and a big, fat liar.

    The Wig is full of shit . The fucker didn't have to work a day the whole time he went to BU . The company I work for paid for part of my schooling and I paid the rest . The first year I worked part time at a grocery store and went to school on top of that . I then left school and went back when I got a job that would pay for part of my schooling . I hate when this fuck brings up going to college and how he did acid and partied . Fuck him. He had it easy not working and going to school. On top of that Ben gave the Wig a car and spending money . I didn't get a car until I was 18 and I paid for it in cash I made working at the grocery store.
    The Wig is a spoiled little puke . When he first got into radio Alison paid the bills until he got going . Without Ben paying the Wig would live in his parents basement today and he would not be able to goof on Hanzi . He is so full of shit .

    I grew up in an upper middle class neighborhood, except for my family which was definitely lower middle class. While all my Jewish neighbor dads worked for IMB or owned their own small factories, my dad worked two jobs until he got full time working for Ma Ball (before it became AT&T). I grew up with a lot of Howard type kids. Where I had to get a paper route, mow lawns during the summer, they went to summer camp along with a generous allowance. When I was in high school I had to get a real job. These kids got a free ride working for their dads, which basically meant all they had to do was ride it with daddy and then do virtually nothing all day. My first car was a beat up old Chevy. The kid next door got a brand new Saab, which daddy wrote off as a company car. Yeah, I knew a lot of Howard's back in the day. I saw through his bullshit stories about his family being poor back when I was still a fan.

    I always got the feeling that Alison was the Wig's new mommy once he got out of college. He said he worked in Newton ma. After college . Guess where Allison was from . Newton . He must have been living with her when he first got his start. He talks about living with some monks or some shit but it was probably only a short time before they got a place together . His horse shit stories don't add up .
    I think most of us overlooked the lies in his stories back in the day because the show was funny .
    These days , well.......

    His father owned a successful New York recording studio, his parents were well off, his story is bullshit like everything else that comes out of his pathological mouth.

    Wikipedia:

    Ben worked as a radio engineer at WHOM in Manhattan[6] and as a co-owner and operator at Aura Recording Inc., a recording studio where cartoons and commercials were produced.[6]

    The studio must have made a lot of money seeing as they made all those cartoons there and stars were in there all the time . No wonder Ben used to yell at the Wig . The kid was a spoiled punk brat .
