Howard got to a clip from Riley Martin's show last night, with Riley admitting he was joking earlier in the year when he claimed he'd put a curse on Howard and Robin. Following the clip, Artie asked if he could leave the studio for a minute to take advantage of "Cupcake Wednesday," which he explained was the day Crumbs bakery brought free cupcakes to the show.
After an assortment of cupcakes was brought into the studio, even the show's announcer, George Takei, a self-proclaimed health nut, took a chocolate cupcake and reported it was "delicious" – while Artie cursed him for taking one of his favorites. When Howard also noted that Brian Phelan of HowardTV had brought bagels and other food in this morning as a Christmas present, Robin pointed out that, despite the "beautiful spread," Scott the Engineer complained there were no napkins. However, Scott defended his remark, insisting he was merely telling George there were no napkins available when he asked for one.
