    A little before my time and I haven't heard much from it in best-of or any of the other replay shows.

    Was it all on one show or spread out over a time period?

    Was it a specific contest or did they let the contestants just work around the office for a day?

    Who competed?

    Are there any particularly good bits form the contest? The only ones I've really heard are the 'Richard Christy perversity staff survey' and 'Crazy Cabbie accuses KC of being gay'.

    Spread out over a week.

    Contestants were Sal, Richard, Chauncy, Shuli(?), and Cabbie. You can find clips of everyone's day on YouTube.

    Howard couldn't make a decision on one winner, so they all got jobs on the show.

    There was a video of all of it on Youtube but it was taken down. Sal bashing on Beth during a bit, was great.

    Richard won. Sal came in 2nd. Sal complained that was only because Richard had 1000s of his metal fans voting for him, and that they don't even listen to the show, so he is the real winner voted by the real fans. Sal was hired shortly after Richard

    Do some searching, Sal's stuff was pretty classic. Full of Booey bashing and even Ohno / Howard shrapnel not seen or heard since the classic roast.
