    We were laughing about this this morning. Howard actually looked good in the picture. The wig did anyway.

    Howard has gotten so much mileage out of Janks' phone calls. I just can't fathom how wiggy can drop thousands of dollars on every purse, dress, and pair of shoes for Beff, yet couldn't manage to throw Janks one fucking bone in 20 years.. If I were Stern I'd call up Janks up and say "Thanks, man. Here's $100,000." Stern wouldn't miss it and it would change Janks life. That would bring me happiness.

    Stern has worked hard to maintain stereotypes throughout the years.

    he is still one of the 3 good things about the stern show. sal and richard being the other 2. always loved janks, local boy made good.

    but he really does expose the mews' inability to accurately source their material. he should have received some sort of journalism award by now.

    it's a travesty that janks has the same number of peabody awards as bill o'reilly.

    I still can't believe the news woman asked him a follow up question after he mentioned Howard Stern's ass.

    The article says that Janks has "never received any monetary compensation from Stern, who has called him both “the king of the cranks” and “my kamikaze.”"

    That's Howard's favorite type of show content - someone else creates it and gives it to him for free.

    Ponce de la Phone was a couple hit wonder. The Booey Bombs from boots are not funny for fun. Just unoriginal and attention whorish.

    Hmus hopes that he keeps up with the free content. How much time did he waste evaluating that piece of tape? All the while disavowing it....fucking asshole.

    Agree with you about penny pinching wiggy, but Janks is such an asshole that I'm glad he never got a penny.

    IIRC, he was paid to do performances at some clubs but didn't and got charged with fraud. He said he was a crack/opiates/meth addict (not sure which). I think he did some time in prison too.

    I didn't know Howard ever addressed this call. When did that happen?
