    The bullshit meter and ass kissing levels have been going to extreme levels lately. I turned on the Wrap Up Show for a second today and they were talking about the Oscars and the first thing I hear is Jon Hein saying, "Gary do you think Howard would host the Oscars if he was asked?"

    What world are they living in? They must live on another planet to first think Howard is still an A level celebrity with his show deteriorating into a well produced Podcast. Second, when have the Oscars had anyone like Howard host it? He doesn't act, doesn't sing, isn't a comedian, and isn't loved by mainstream America.

    Was this just another attempt by Jon to keep his job or does he really think Wiggy could host the Oscars? Next they will ask, "if the Rolling Stones asked Fred to open up for them do you think he would say yes?"

    He'd be scared to death. He wouldn't host it without a gun (literally) pointed at his head. He would exposed as the unfunny creature he is without his cronies.

    Even at the absolute height if his popularity that idea is laughable.

    In the delusional made up world where every other option is dead and they asked Wiggy to do it he would not only turn them down because it would involve...

    A. Too much actual work and effort
    B. A critical drubbing afterwards which would actually be read by normal people as opposed to radiophiles
    C. Actual reportable and comparable ratings.
    D. It doesn't pay any hardly any money

    ...But then he would spend the next year telling everyone how his radio show was too important to leave to do it while shitting on the guy that took his place claiming how much better he would have been.

    Gary, if the Museum of Modern Art asked Howard to do a show featuring his Modge Podge do you think he would ?

    The sound of Hein's ass-kissing voice is enough to make me vomit. I bet they went into a 15 minute discussion on the pros and cons, too. :rolleyes:

    At the absolute height of his popularity he would have qualified to host the Razzies. That's it.

    don't care. if he said yes, it would be the ass-kissing Howard that bores people to sleep, and not the edgy Howard that is actually entertaining.
