How inappropriate for your drunk boss to blurt out how much he makes. Fucking Booey... During the on-air conversation (in early 2004), Gary also reveals that: "Up until three years ago, John and I were like ten thousand dollars apart" (WTF!?!?!?!?!) Either Gary was getting paid peanuts or John was getting too much. Interesting discussion. John added a lot to the show back then. John guesses Fred is worth 5 million, Fred says he isn't worth 2 mil.
