    Most of your top doctors recommend attending polo matches to help heal a broken foot....

    THIS was the breaking point for me and Stern fandom--it was a slow build with all of the Hollywood ass kissing and fence mending with Rosie/Ellen/Tyra/et al--but THIS spoke volumes about his character; everything else can be written off as schtick or "he's playing a character, but not THIS.

    Up until this particular event, I always thought he was "one of us", but after blowing off the funeral of a co-worker of 30 years with a weak excuse, that did it for me--scumbag.

    And weren't he and Beth out spotted at some media event that weekend? Beth even had a boot on her foot. At least if your going to lie, stay home that weekend. Out of sight.

    You know how this is bullshit? Who the fuck wears high heels at 5:20AM to go the airport to get on a plane?

    Really? Was she wearing her black funeral dress in full make-up as well?

    Fucking liar.

    Funny that Gary doesn't even care that Howard missed it.

    And Howard's assessment of Chauncey Hayden's article just proves the fact that he ALWAYS HAS TO BE RIGHT!

    Once again, thanks for the props on my youtube channel. I wish I had the YT privileges at the time to make it ONE chapter at the time because believe or not, people are too stupid and lazy to actually click on to the next chapter.

    And for alot of people. I remember vividly SFN and lemming mods went on a banning frenzy with the hate both Howard and Beth got that whole week. It got so bad I think Mutt shut the site down and had to issue some memorandum to the members. Because most certainly he was contacted by Howard and the show.

    Listen to how rattled Howard sounds in that Chauncey clip, I don't think I've ever heard him that shaken up by fan feedback. And believe me it wasn't just Chauncey, he knew the fans turned on him that day all over because it wasn't just that piece. Like 10 news sources covered that story.

    I think maybe that NIGHT??? And this Ahole is getting DRIVEN to the thing. There were like 3 showings and even if Beth DID injure her horse hoof he still had AMPLE opportunity to make the others. Fred drove on a fucking motorcycle from the same area.

    No excuse, that Opie and Anthony clip hit it on the head, "OH IT WAS A BEAUTIFUL DAY IN THE HAMPTONS AND GARY'S DEAD FATHER WASN'T GONNA SCREW THAT UP!"

    Ok, maybe I'm confused--I thought the wake was in Florida with Gary's parents having moved out of Uniondale years ago (right?)--so I assumed that Howard was referencing that Ronnie was picking him up at 5:30AM to make it to the airport.

    The wake/funeral was on LI? And Howard was in the Hamptons AND he still couldn't make it?

    And yes, wakes are typically 2 days, with the funeral the following day; so once her ankle pain subsided, he could have at least made it to the funeral/burial.

    wow.

    Let's go with the premise that she really did sprain her ankle. I would not need my husband to babysit me once we made it home.

    The wake was indeed in beautiful Uniondale LI. I think Gary had the body flown to LI because everyone was there.

    Everybody knows that wakes are creepy and funerals are not exactly boatloads of fun, but you go because you're supporting the people who are left behind, if you really care about them.

    This episode proved without a doubt that Stern lacks all sense of class, compassion, and empathy for anybody but himself, and this after so many years of supposed therapy. I remember thinking to myself that if I was Gary, I would have told Stern off the air that he was a major cocksucker, then tore a yard off his ass. But Gary has never been known for his balls.

    ^This.

    He could/should have dropped her off at the hospital and hauled ass. Anyone want to lay odds that the conversation went like this?

    Beth: I'll be okay, you really should get going to the wake.
    Howard: Ahh, I don't wanna go.
    Beth: You can't miss this; Gary's worked for you for so long, it would mean a lot to him.
    Howard: I get schieved out by those things--nobody will notice I didn't make it.

    Just insert a shitload of "I"s and have fun with the dialogue.
