I don't get these jokes. I assume they're jokes, but I'm not laughing because I don't get them.

Like in the corporations thread: "Fuh fuh Flunkie!"

You've done it several other times too:

Bah bah booey!

Juh juh Junkie!

Is there a joke? Am I just reading too much into this?

Howard Stern used to do that to Gary Delaboti.

Ah. You'll have to forgive me. I'm not a great Howard Stern mind.

I guess it's played out. I'll try to come up with some new material.

1. It's Dell'Abate.
2. It started with Gary misnaming a celluloid still of cartoon character Babalooie he'd recently purchased 'Bababooie.' So everyone started calling him that in part to recall the flub and in part because it resembles his last name. Over time it evolved into countless iterations with the same syncopated cadence, mah-mah monkey [Gary has simian features, tah-tah toothy [he also has prominent teeth, in part due to a glaring cap job], fah-fah flunky, rah-rah-retard, pah-pah popo, etc.

Dead to me.

Hampton's Howie aka the grumpy yenta aka Beth O's handbag holder is occasionally a little annoying, but vintage Stern is the tits, and he can still generate a laughing fit without even trying.

It always amazes me that a super culturally literate guy such as yourself, with otherwise sophisticated tastes, is a diehard Howard fan. I admit that I liked the guy for a little while back in 1996 or so when he first switched to E!, but I never really kept up after that.

Edit: I'm not meaning to come off as snobby or downplaying Howard. I haven't actually listened to the guy in ages, so I can't really give an honest evaluation of his show. Being a Howard fan just always seemed sort of out of character for you.

What can I say, he makes me laugh every day.

And I would submit that what he does, comedically and from an entertainment perspective, IS sophisticated. Not all the time, but when he wants to he has a massive bag of tricks to entertain, whether it's pushing bits to the bleeding edge [ie, the homeless game versus the neutered Jay-walking, it's just wrong] or his interview techniques. MoF, Jeff Probst spent last Monday on Howard's chaneel outlining/dissecting the subtle things Howard does in interviews to extract maximum information/entertainment.

I edited my post a little bit to confess that I haven't given Howard a good solid listen in years, so I'm not really able to honestly assess his comedic talents. I did watch him on E! for a few years, but I was a different person back then. Hell, I might really enjoy him if I started watching again.

I used to listen to him daily back in the 90's, but the best part of the show was the news portion at the end. I could do without the lesbians and porno skanks, etc. Back then he would be scheduled to end at (I think) 10 eastern time, but would run 45 minutes long every day. That last 45 minutes would usually be the best part. Then he started getting bitter about the fines and his pay and he got more strict on the end of show time. When he did that he stopped getting to a lot of the good stuff, in my opinion.
The other thing I hated was that he would say he was going to play some bit and not only keep teasing it for the whole show, but then go three days without playing it.

None of that on Sirius, except the getting off the air part. Stern Fan Network has daily 'wagers' on how many times he'll say 'anything else Robin' [his passive agressive way of notifying Robin that she's talked long enough] in the news block. But no censorship [except his own] and no shortage of bits, with Sal and Richard doing their own 'Jerky Boys' industry in the back office.

I see. It's Friday and I have happy hour on the mind. I read somewhere that Artie contacted Stern. All Stern said about the talk was that he's doing not good. Not much of surprise from a guy that stabbed himself with a kitchen knife.

I've been pretty f'd up before, but the kitchen knife was never an option. Never even occured to me.

Happy hour? Aren't you undertaking the sobriety challenge?

Personally I'm not willing to put up with the stupidity for the occassional clever/witty nugget.

The commercial comparing him to Jordan/Ali/Elvis makes me laugh though.

1,150 posts in less than a month? Is this guy employed?

Count me in as a fan. And I never had a chance to listen to him in his early years at all. He's entertaining as hell and well worth the money.

On a whim I tracked down a set of archived shows from when he was taking down 'The Magic Hour.' Now that was a tour de force, nailing what's wrong with Late Night talk shows in general, as well as Magic in particular, along with IDing and goofing on all the little 'notes' that Magic was clearly taking to 'improve' the show over time. The guy knows entertainment so well that he can make busting on bad entertainment, good entertainment.

If you want to hear old Howard at his best, track down the Booie tape viewing, or Billy West when he does Marge Schott [warning rampant use of N-word, which is to be expected if you know anything about Margie], or Billy slamming Conan as a nobody, Jackie Puppet, Booie Puppet, Kinison fighting Bobcat Goldthwait, Kinison fighting Dice Clay, best of all Kinison fighting Jessica Hahn until she was in tears, plucking Soupy Sales' piano strings, showdown in Pig Vomit's office. That should give you a start.

I started listening to Stern when he was on WNBC Radio in NY in what 1984? he had the Jesse Jackson song Hymie town playing. I think he moved to K- Rock the next year and I stopped listening. its the same garbage over and over (enter Robin Quivers laughing)

Howard is better than ever in my opinion. He's the best celebrity interviewer out there. He can get the celebs to answer questions that no one else can and not just about their sex lives, about anything really. Sal and Richard are also better than Stuttering John could ever hope to be.
