    How would the HSS have evolved differently through the '90s if Gary hadn't made that "Baba Booey" mistake when talking about his cartoon cel collection?

    I think Gary would never have become the wealthy man he is today.

    Gary's ability to fuck things up and get goofed on have made him a wealthy man. Only problem is once Howard retires, there aren't going to be TV networks and Radio stations looking to hire a glorified intern at a 6 figure salary.

    One of the best parts of the show used to be Howard and Jackie goofing on Gary.

    Gary might not be working there now. The "Baba Booey" catchphrase was a lifetime job guarantee. It'd be embarrassing to get on a talk show and try to explain why Gary is "around" and not working there any more.

    If Gary never said "Baba Booey" then Howard wouldn't be paying people to shout it at the next golf match Bill Murray attends

    "Hey boff, wow thank you for keeping me as your personal whipping post. I couldn't be happier being your fucking big toothed pet chimp. It makes me so happy that I did not inconvenience you or your great wife in having you coming to my father's funeral. He must have inconvenience you with his death. That rat bastard! But I will always be there for you even when you need to pick up your cum tissues. I'll would have sent my blind wife to get them with the kids if I had too. I am so happy that when I leave this life that my legacy of my family name will always be synonymous with being the luckiest lacky in the history of the world. Now I must go and pick my ass and eat whatever is at the end of my finger. Did I tell you how great you are??? You are. I would let you violate either of my sons if you want. If Ralph is not there, I will drop off one or both and you may emasculated them as you have done to me. Just call. Love you, Boff!"

    So, in a way, collecting those cells were worth a lot of money.

    He has had enough fuck-ups during the glory years that he would have still provided radio fodder.

    If not for Baba-Booey, people would be yelling out Mach-Hine or quoting his apology tape

    Something in me still believes he tried to fuck up his Mets pitch. Look how much publicity he got out of it.
