    I mean the entire history of the world.

    I've narrowed it down to "That dumbfuck Bobo pretending to believe the world is ending" and "That dumbfuck Sal pretending to cry while he pretends to believe Howard is retiring while the entire staff pretends to believe they are pranking him".

    There are many other awful, ongoing fake bits over the years (John pretending to stutter, Sal pretending to be stupid, Howard pretending to not wear a wig, Beth pretending to be a model, ect.) but these two are the cream of the crop....the biggest turds in a pile of shit. I've determined this after 26 years of sort of listening to the show.

    Which is the worst of the worst....?

    Bobo....



    Sal.....



    I honestly have to go with Sal's revolting, cringe inducing, asshole puckering, douche chilling, Oscar losing performance as the worst moment in the history of the show....and everything else.

    Didn't a guy come in to the studio and claimed he had his dead daughters body stuffed to preserve her? I think that's how it went.

    You know I haven't actually heard that one yet. I'm 3 weeks behind on fast-forwarding through new shows and have been listening to mostly toddpacker's stuff of late. So I'll have to set that one aside pending further review.

    And what makes certain fake bits stand out is if they STILL pretend on down the road that it was actually real.

    Gary the Retard goes to the Moon was hideous and would be up there near the top but I don't think they even try to sell that as legit anymore as if Gary actually thought he was on the moon. That wasn't fake insulting so much as it was just fucking stupid. However, they still pretend to this day that Sal crying over Howard leaving was real.

    A week or two ago, Sal claimed he didn't know the movie Gettsburg was about the Civil War and did not know the Civil War had to do with slavery.

    They talked to that guy and dismissed him as a fake. Didn't pretend like it was legit from what I recall.

    They totally tried to play this off as real.

    Actually, I believe the "mother" was involved and was either Fred's or Jackie's wife (in a wig).

    I hated the bit with the black guy who supposedly was named "Nigga What" towards the end of the K-Rock era.

    Without hearing a second of that particular show I'd have to agree with you.

    Hmmm....I'll have to research that. I remember it running on the E Show. I mostly remember them laughing at this guy and the bit being "Is this guy for real?". It was just dumb and mostly forgotten. Something a Benji would come up with if he was on the show back then (which I don't think he was an intern yet).

    But he was a guy Howard hired to be on the show through a company called Electric Eel Entertainment. So Howard knew he was a fake and the bit was a fake.
