Benjy said he was going on a hunger strike (“a complete water fast”) until Sirius signed a new contract with Bubba the Love Sponge. Howard thought the stunt was too dangerous: “Why don’t you just lose weight like a normal person?” Benjy stepped on the scale – he weighed in at 250lbs – and promised to stick to the fast: “I might have some coffee [but] I will not eat anything…I’ve been waiting for some issue.”
