    Now Howard claims that Tim Burton stole from a bit he did for the climatic scene in Mars Attack where they played Slim Whitman to get rid of the aliens from a bit they did in the WNBC days . He even claims that Lukas Haas' character, Ritchie Norris, is named after Fred.

    The thing is the movie was written by Jonathan Gems who is a British playwright. And Tim Burton is British director. Neither were probably in states when that bit ran, nevermind in NYC.

    Howard is shameless in his attempts to claim he invented everything. Do even the lemmings who still hang on his every word still believe this crap?

    You are right. My bad. But Gems created the story and wrote the screenplay.

    If I had publically done that bit and a movie used it years later I'd have been screaming about it at the time. Howard must have watched that movie this weekend for the very first time :facepalm:

    Howard stole the sound bite ack ack from that movie to use for the midget, He is a hypocrite. No one stole shit from him, he should be arrested for stealing from the fans and Sirius.

    Maybe he has. Howard screams about people stealing stuff from him so often that I lose track of all the stuff he claimed that people ripped off from him.

    Good catch, he also stole a Jack Nicholson sound byte as well if I'm not mistaken. He also beat to death the Martin Landau as Bela Lugosi clip in ED WOOD (also Burton) whenever and wherever possible pretending he wrote that scene.

    Actually he talked about this in the late 90's with Tim Burton when he was a guest. They agreed it was an amazing coincidence

    Is there a 'Howard Invention Week' in the works by the tape team?

    I wonder if Howard will highlight all the inventions he took from Imus and Steve Dahl.

    Burton's not British, he's just a sissy. Easy mistake.

    He has the next best thing.

    He lies about inventing it
    The Arrogant Monkey backs up his BS claim
    and Butt Buddy Jon Hein claims to remember it and it being so funny that he was laughing so hard it made him late for work because he didn't want to get out of the car until it the commercial.
