Howard thought the Howard 100 News did an excellent job covering High Pitch Eric's performance yesterday, while Gary noted that Shuli, who announced the event, turned a corner with the work he did. Gary also reported that Ralph Cirella was great at describing Eric's apartment. Howard agreed with Gary and added that Ralph's commentary really brought the apartment to life.
Gary was amazed that, even though the food was laid out in the middle of the room along side Eric's specially made toilet, most of the crew there still had no problems eating. Artie mentioned that he was so grossed out by the thought of what Eric was doing; he actually had to wait until he got back to New Jersey yesterday. Benjy reported that he was listening to the broadcast as he was falling asleep and that the last things he heard were Joey Boots arguing with Irish John, Tabitha Stevens on the speakerphone laughing, High Pitch screaming about his stomach and Sadie – Eric's dog – barking like crazy all at once. Gary then pointed out that one of the best aspects of the show for him was getting caught up in the action on the sidelines and forgetting Eric was even there – until he started asking for toilet paper that is.
Numbers Don't Lie
Gary announced that Eric moved his bowels three times and that the total weight of his offerings came to only one pound, three ounces. Howard noted that, since he took the under on the 3.5-pound line, he won $500 from both Fred and Artie, while Robin also lost $200 to Gary on the same wager. Fred wasn't surprised by the outcome, because, in typical High Pitch fashion, he got free food, a free radio and free publicity, but gave back nothing. In addition, Robin owed Artie $100, because he took the under on the number of times Eric would relieve himself with the line set at four.
Robin also had to cough up $100 each to Howard, Fred and Artie for taking the over on the one-pound line for the weight of Eric's first movement, which was just half a pound. Gary wondered if Eric choked under the pressure, but Howard didn't think he did. Howard went on to say that after hearing a Howard 100 News interview with a zoo employee about the amount feces large animals produce in a day, he was confident Eric's droppings wouldn't weigh all that much.

Only So Much He Can Take
Shuli called in and told Howard that Eric actually went four times and that he consumed about 11 pounds of food. Howard pointed out that the only thing that disappointed him with Shuli's performance was that he left Eric's apartment before his shift ended. However, Shuli defended himself, explaining that he either had to leave or sleep on Eric's couch, which he wasn't willing to do. Further, Shuli mentioned that he hadn't eaten a thing the entire day because of what was going on around him, so he needed to get some food in a sanitized location.
