Comedian, Greg Giraldo, came in for the news and as soon as Howard saw him, he noticed Greg had put on some weight. Greg admitted Howard's observation was true, noting he gained the weight after he stopped drinking. Howard then pointed out Greg had a tattoo he hadn't seen before. When Howard asked Greg what his tattoo, which included the number "525," meant, he said it was difficult to explain, although he commented it had something to do with the months of February and May. Howard said he admired Greg's passion for his tattoo, even if he didn't know what his body art meant.
Howard brought up the next roast they do on the show will probably take place at night, so people have been talking about the drinking they're planning to do that evening. Howard then asked Greg if he ever misses alcohol, which he admitted he does. Greg added, though, his life has improved since he quit drinking, so he's glad he decided to do it. Greg went on to note he recently had a proctology exam that was broadcast on Comedy Central, which led Howard to play the sound effect of Mike Walker's fart over a song by Yes. Howard then acknowledged that Yes was one of his guilty pleasures, as is Def Leopard. When Greg commented that Def Leppard is one band he could never enjoy, Howard recalled he saw the group in concert two years ago and was bothered for some reason by their one-armed drummer.
