Howard reported that Artie was “sick” again today, but the fat man didn’t even call this time; he had his assistant, Teddy, do it for him. Howard, for one, said he believed Artie really was sick, as obesity couldn’t be great for anyone’s health. A caller thought the message Artie left yesterday was kind of an “F’ you” message, since he didn’t cough (as usual), but laughs instead. Howard listened to the message again and heard the laugh but didn’t agree with the caller’s assessment.
