    If Howard finds out the bus fare is coming out of his own pocket some one's going to get reamed.

    there likely are some legitimate reasons. I highly doubt he's a real employee of Sirius and if they paid him he would be and all the other things that come along with that would come into play. contracts, unions, potential law suits, liabilities, etc. Howard could throw him some money under the table and would never even notice it was missing but of course Howard won't do that.

    From what I've heard, he's paid by the bit.

    Yep, that's how Howard treats the people he uses.
    I've seen it with my own eye.

    I think he has an obligation to pay anyone who contributes to his show which in turn lines his pockets. Most people tune in NOT only to hear Howard but to hear beetle juice, big foot etc. If these people accrue expenses in the process they should be paid for not only that but also there time. Does not have to be a lot of money either. A couple hundred bucks here and there. This is a direct response for Howard always saying you never put your own money up when it is not your business. Like how he puts down people who put money up for a movie or whatever. Complete scumbag thing to do. That's the main reason Stuttering John never got paid what he was worth and JD lives in a Brooklyn shit house.

    Listen, it's a whole to do. We give elephant a platform to promote his appearances ok. No one else cares about his opinions. He should be paying is.

    He's the same guy who did not pay Andy dick when he had his own show. Howard is building Bianca's shitty friends by plugs alone
