Eric the Midget called in to congratulate Johnny Fratto on his newborn son and threaten to burn the show yet again: this time he was angry about listeners coming by the studio to watch his upcoming appearance. Howard said he knew Eric was going to show up anyway: “You’re in show business now, pal. It’s all about people looking at you.” Eric replied that he was fine with the in-studio crew looking at him, but not “stupid assholes off the street.” Howard dismissed Eric’s concerns again, and Eric obtusely said “whatever” before ending the call.
