    where he described his encounter with Michael Jackson?
    Funny thing is that Howard has become everything that he criticized MJ about:

    * grotesque plastic surgery
    * wig wearing
    * has a yes-man manager demanding public adulation (no concept of public attitudes)

    The whole meeting was based off the fact that MJ's public image was taking a huge hit, so they had a pretty good concept of it

    howard was mj's most ardent critic prior to the meeting, mj's management wanted to pacify howard with a business deal...after the meeting, howard became less antagonistic toward the king of pop

    If Michael Jacksons people had agreed to an in studio interview Howard would have pranked his fans to support Jackson.
    It was only because they couldn't work out a deal is why we got to hear this evolved half truth story.

    ^ Exactly. Buchwald wanted 200 mil and 30% of Thrillers retroactive sales figures.

    It's like how FOX gave Stern the late night try-out, thought his pilots sucked and shelved them.

    "Did you know Rupert Murdoch had me in his office, BEGGING me to become his late night guy? But I said no, Robin."

    If the meeting ever happened - did anybody from Michael Jackson's camp ever confirm that this meeting ever actually took place? It's funny how the details keep changing over the years.

    Please. Next you're going to tell me Conan didn't personally phone Howard begging him to bash Leno on his last Tonight Show.

    this

    Sometimes it's coming, sometimes it's going, and most times it's both, but one thing's for sure: if you take a meeting with 112, you're getting fucked somewhere down the line.

    or that "everybody" wasn't egging him on to cut in on Jimmy and Molly's first dance

    The person that brokered the Jackson meeting was a long time publicist (?) of Dolly Parton which kind of explains why Howard quickly stopped goofing on her audio book.
    Again Howard would have absolutely pranked pissed on and skull fucked his fans if the price was right.

    Howard was beaten up by Polish kids in high school. The Polish kids with the names Leroy, Darius and La'Kenyon.

    That passage got me started as a fan. Had surgery, was desperate to read something...someone had left the book in my house.

    I was dying laughing...I thought it was the funniest thing I had ever read.

    As far as I'm concerned, this book was a signpost of what a phony poseur this guy was.

    I'm with the group that believes this has always been fiction and never really happened. Like 95 percent of the stuff in the books he "wrote".

    What's funny is when you remember him being critical of someone or something like this, he ends up emulating it years later. He's just jealous, as he likes to phrase it. Another example: he went on and on for years about Howie Mandel had an easy gig getting to say "Deal, or no deal?" and how that's the job he wanted: Doing the least amount of effort for big money. And look at him now.
    Also Imus has a cancer ranch, Howard has his NSAL. Imus has his cowboy hat, Howard has his fedora. etc.

    Neither book was ever about that, just that garbage movie.
