    After 23-plus years supporting the King of All Media, Howard Stern’s studio chair is on the verge of collapsing. Last week, his staff warned him, it finally looked ready to crumble under the fluctuating weight of Fartman’s tuchus.

    In 2005, the chair, a high-back black leather number, held together in some places with tape, had even traveled with him the eight blocks from 92.3 K-Rock to his glorious new SiriusXM studio, where he currently reigns supreme. But as Stern’s third contract renewal at Sirius fast approaches, it was the chair that gave out first.

    So now it’s time to give it what it deserves — a respectable spot in the Smithsonian.

    Sure, he’s joked about it on air in recent weeks, saying he’s leaning toward giving it to his family, after he briefly played with the thought of giving it to a fan, who he decided in the end would unjustly sell it.

    But Stern’s throne deserves a spot in the venerable museum’s National Museum of American History in Washington, where past exhibitions have included the ruby slippers from “The Wizard of Oz,” Apolo Ohno’s speed skates from the 2002 Winter Olympics and Archie Bunker’s chair from “All in the Family.”

    The greatest living broadcaster has done more for American culture than all of the above combined. Who else has lasted nearly 40 years in the radio business, turning honest thoughts into gold, battling the FCC, and conducting some of the best celebrity interviews ever? Howard Allan Stern, that’s who.

    As a longtime fan, his evolution has been both a surprise and a joy to experience.
    .
    Stern has farted in that chair, but he’s also fought for free speech in that chair. He’s gotten countless stars to tell him their most private tales, connecting us all while we eavesdrop in from our own boring lives. A horny toad turned feminist, a gay rights champion, he’s a voice for equal opportunity who gives praise to public servants. Everyone from truck drivers to comedians want to hear what he says next. Even after all this time.

    That chair has seen the end of one marriage and the beginning of a new one, to his wife, Beth Stern. They have a lovely sex life, by the way, he often shares the details of it with us. The chair has felt his rage, shook from his laughter, and has rattled from countless lap dances during his wild years. He sat in it while he talked a frightened New York City through 9/11.

    On Jan. 1, 2008, he dedicated the entire start of the show to the chair, after one producer had invited his daughter to sit in it during a studio tour. He was screamed at in front of millions as Stern bellowed that “no one is to touch my chair.” Stern’s loyal staff ordered him a new chair; he did some trial runs last week. He seemed to like one in particular, even though it was pulling at his shirt, he said.

    When I contacted the Smithsonian, they’d caught wind of the chair being retired, and told me, “We are not able to speculate on possible acquisitions to the permanent collection of the museum,” but are “happy to speak with potential donors.”

    So let’s get the chair where it belongs. Label it “King of All Media’s Throne.” That way, generations of fans can come gawk at it. Just don’t touch it. You how he gets about that sort of thing.

    It must be fun being Marianne Garvey's editor. She is Mariann from Brooklyn with a job. I can only imagine the story pitch meetings.

    Editor: So Marianne, what stories are you working on?

    Marianne: Well, Howard said something really insightful about koala bears today on the show.

    Editor: Geez, another Howard Stern article? Got anything else?

    Marianne: Well, Beth adopted another kitten.

    Editor: We just ran a piece about Beth Stern last week. What else?

    Marianne: Well, Howard promises that this season's AGT will be the best one yet.

    Editor: That is just another Howard Stern piece.

    Marianne: No it isn't. It is an AGT piece.

    Editor: How about something on George Clooney?

    Marianne: Funny, you should say that. I have been working on a story about him for a long while. It is how honored George Clooney is that Howard and Beth attends his New Years party the last few years.

    I wonder if this bitch scrubs herself down with a wire brush after she cashes Howard's checks.

    Bobo called in last week to ask for the chair, the Wig declined because Bobo sold the tickle chair for $2,300.00 when he moved to Florida.

    Howard Stern has to buy positive articles because nobody listens or cares about him.

    Wiggy should get an award for being the biggest fraud.

    Isn't things put in the Smithsonian because they used to be universally loved but no one really cares about them anymore. Shouldn't they put Howard in the Smithsonian?
