    As a long time listener I can think of only a few incidents where Fred was vocal and animated. One of those was when Carol Alt is on or discussed. He would go out of his way to say she wasn't a "Supermodel" when everyone else on the staff agreed she was.

    Obviously I am bringing up an old show topic. However, I was looking at TMZ today and saw they were discussing the all-time supermodels and Carol's name was mentioned. http://photos.toofab.com/galleries/sexy_supermodels_then_and_now#tab=now_then&id=352894

    My question is this; was this all shtick and designed to make an interview with a random model more interesting? Or, was this the one of the few times Fred got vocal and made his opinion clear?

    I think the latter. I recall her being referenced as the first "supermodel" in one or more publications well before she became a topic on the Stern show. Fred was just wrong. Adamantly wrong, but wrong.

    Gag. Robots have no opinions.

    Fred was a Martian, not a robot. That came much later.

    Fred is a fucking weirdo and I don't think it was a bit at all.

    Once Fred takes a side he sticks to it no matter how crazy. I love how he always makes hilariously bad arguments support his position.

    Fred should turn his supermodel debunking powers on Howard's horse.

    I'd need to compare Fred going off about the rainbow room or the guy in the Ikea parking lot with the Carol Alt explosion to see if it was heartfelt or not. We know Fred showed the real Fred in those fights.
