Eric the Midget called in to complain that his national strip club tour has been put on hold because of his dispute with Johnny Fratto. Artie said Eric shot himself in the foot by overbilling Johnny for his time: “You’re acting like a big blob of stupidity.” Eric shot back that Artie was in fact the biggest blob on the air, but Howard thought Artie was right and asked Eric if it was really a good idea to feud with his benefactor. Eric claimed he didn’t even have enough money to eat “much,” so Howard laughed that the little guy probably couldn’t eat much in the first place.
