Shuli called in to talk about his Thanksgiving, which he spent with Richard's parents in Kansas for broadcast on Howard 100. Shuli commented that Richard's parents were two of the nicest and funniest people he'd ever met, and that most of Richard's aunts, uncles and cousins were the same way. Shuli went on to say that Richard's dad killed half of the food they ate right before dinner, which was a practice that was foreign to him. Shuli added that he tried everything on the table, including deer chops, frog legs, flathead and quail.
Because he was so unfamiliar with the cuisine, Shuli also mentioned that Richard gave him a good piece of advice after he had eaten the quail, which was to be careful not to chip his teeth on the buckshot that was undoubtedly still inside the bird. Richard said that he spent a good portion of his Thanksgiving listening to Shuli's broadcast, and that he made him feel like he was home. In addition to hearing the story about his mother's favorite one-eyed goose, Richard noted that Shuli also got a tour of his parents' haunted basement. Howard informed Shuli that he's been doing a terrific job for him at SIRIUS, and that he'd have him as a guest in his apartment long before he'd ever ask Sal to be one.
Booze Pizza and the Boss
Gary brought up that he was in Los Angeles during the vacation, and that he got a call from Artie at 1 a.m. New York time. Gary explained that Artie had only called him to find out which of the two Bruce Springsteen DVDs he should watch from the box set that just came out last week. Gary reported that once he suggested a concert to him, Artie responded, "I knew you'd have a black and white, slam dunk answer." Artie pointed out that he had been drinking at a charity event that night, and that not only was he "the perfect amount of drunk," but that he also was alone with a pizza. Artie went on to say that his topper to the night was going to be watching the better of the two Springsteen concerts, and that was why he called Gary.
