    I've heard several H100 News reports with Shuli calling Wackpackers to tell them they WON tickets to the Birthday Bash. He keeps using the word WON (and repeats it several times) instead of saying they were given tickets or invited. Winning something suggests they entered a contest which doesn't seem to be the case. There are some pretty strict rules that govern how contests are supposed to be handled, he may be violating them by using the word WON.

    Just to get around the contest law they probably asked them "Who was buried in Grant's Tomb". The only tickets that were actually won were those in the Sirius drawing. If people are that hard up to see Howard they should just go to AGT auditions.

    It's coming down to the wire and THSS is scrambling to fill the venue...Without making it seem like they are scrambling. This whole thing makes me realize how funny it is that the sycophants were wondering why they didn't have the bash at Madison Square Garden because Wiggy could fill that arena no problem.

    There have been several of these calls - Sour Shoes, Wendy and Gary the Retards, and Pete The Asian Virgin (who hasn't been on the show in ages) to name a few. It's odd he uses the word WON to describe how they got tickets.

    They've already proven they were lying about the demand for tickets. The "Judge JD" segment was supposedly to choose who got the ONE ticket that was available, then they gave tickets to the others too. If Pete The Asian Virgin and Howard's photography teacher got tickets how scarce can they be?

    Howard has to hear his favorite new song doesn't he? btw who thought of calling it the Birthday Bash???? Sooooo lame....it should just be called Howard's Birthday Show like it always was....or the Howard's 60th B'day Show....The Birthday Bash???? ugh.

    peace & love

    maybe if they don't say "won" it could be construed as income and then they would be entitled to benefits and withholding?

    I wouldn't be shocked if he was instructed to use that language to hype up the event. Saying you "won" tickets makes it sound like more of a privilege or a reward rather than just being "given" one. Howard wants to make these tickets appear scarce and valuable, which is why we hear Gary saying "it's the hottest ticket in town!" and screaming at callers to hang up if they don't "win" one on the air.

    It it should be called the SiriusXM Super Bowl Party. The wackpackers were always going, they are advertised as part of the event.

    Good point--- What exactly is going to happen in between the music acts of the Birthday Show?? I predict people with low IQs, that get even lower with alcohol, screaming stupid, annoying crap...and I'm not referring to the Wackpack...
