    I'd like to know the deal on why these certain products that Howard advertises are scams. I'm curious.

    - Avion Tequila
    - Cock Sox
    - Don't Be Broke
    - Flex Belt
    - Freshballs
    - Freshbooks
    - What's Your Price

    Freshbooks isn't a bad service at all. Good invoicing system for freelancers. I'd use it, but built my own already :c

    Don't be broke - nothing short of legalized loansharking. Borrow a thousand bucks and end up paying 4,000 within a year.

    Don't forget the one that supposedly makes a guy's cock bigger. I always get a laugh when the spokeswhore says something like, "Legally I can't tell you how much bigger you will get but......." Yeah no shit you can't legally say because the claim would be fraudulent. These companies are all snakeoil salespeople.

    If we're dumb enough to still listen to the crap Stern is passing of as entertainment, the Ad Execs think we'll buy just about anything.

    -Beezid was/is a scam.
    -What was the Beeceuticals one?
    -Ashley Madison et al are scams/shady to say the least.

    -Sit 'N Sleep, not a scam, just really annoying!

    I hate the "hidden" or sponsored plugs, like Tahiti Village or when he talks about something "he really likes."

    Klondike and Heineken were his most legit sponsors. Now he's got nothing!

    You mean the most honest man on the radio would endorse scams?

    Subscribers can spend some of the massive profits they made from pennystockchaser on these great products and services.

    I automatically assume any company that advertises on Howard's channels or is endorsed by him is a rip-off and go out of my way NOT to buy their products. Works for me.

    Stern had an advertiser about 6 years ago called "Mangroomer", it was designed to shave your back hair. I bought it and still use it when my fiance isn't around to do it. It must be a huge turn on for her to shave my back*:cool:*That was the only product I ever bought (besides*Heineken), I got my 20 bucks worth of the thing.**
