    It's been all over 101 the last couple of days.

    My question for long time fans...

    Do you buy this? Do you honestly think Sal is this stupid or was the whole thing just a bit??

    Listening to Jon Hein talk about the genius of Howard during this whole escapade is gross too...."Howard made him record a SECOND apology!!!!! That's why Howard is Howard!!!!

    I realize these types of questions are the subject of great controversy, but in this case, I think Occam's Razor would suggest that Sal just really is that stupid.

    Sal cut himself with Occam's Razor when shaving.

    Occam's Razor would say that everything is a bit designed to maximize marbles without having to work for them.

    If authentic, that bit would have required some mediocre acting on Sal's part.

    I just don't believe he's that good of an actor.

    Two things I heard on that TWUS, I mean THSWUS

    -The caller that made a old Howard v AGT/cat Howard remark was just glossed over expertly by john and sugar ray

    -John mentioned something about people in the studio and Sal not being "on anymore". I took it as the new marching orders will keep staff off the newly formatted turd fest show.

    so so so fake

    When Sal first appeared on the stern show he was the crafty conniving guy that regularly mocked the simpleton simian.
    Now he is the dumb guy that can't find Canada on a map.

    Yup. I think its as fake as Howards math. I also heard the crying bit Sal did for the prank that Howard didn't resign to Sirius. I think thats fake too.

    I thing It was real. Jon hein sounds like an idiot when he talks about Howard's "genius". It is unnecessary and comes off very poorly. I don't care for the "new" wrap up show.

    Never believed it from day one. Just another supposedly spontaneous moment that was scripted and rehearsed. Looked at the rundown for that day on Marksfriggin. Howard made his announcement sometime between 6:25 and 6:40. They brought Sal in the studio a little after 8:05 (after he conveniently overslept) and pulled the "prank". Hard to believe he didn't get any info on his phone or hear something on the street or in the Sirius building during that approx. 90 minute interval.

    THIS.

    All of the "Sal is dumb" bits are horribly staged. Worst are the one's where he uses a word or phrase incorrectly.

    Most of Sal's stuff is fake. Does anyone think he really thought Howard would let him stay over his house and let him watch the Bachelor in bed with him and Beth? Do people think he really believes the Civil War started because Rosa Parks refused to sit in the back of the bus? Do people believe he didn't know the Civil War had something to do with slavery (this was a different bit from the Rosa Parks bit)?

    He was always doing a bit on the air and most of the time it was fairly obvious. It used to be funny though. Now it is just stupid.

    This is the biggest indictment IMHO.

    The bad grammar and borderline retarded character that Sal plays now simply does not match the Sal the guy who prank called Gary.
