Steve Langford reported that after his story yesterday on Eric the Midget's about-to-be-canceled promotional event, tickets miraculously started selling. Eric the Midget called in to say Steve wasn't the reason for the ticket sales – his email-based promotional efforts were. Steve replied that the facts were clear: the tickets only sold after he reported on the event. Howard seemed to agree, laughing that Eric shouldn't care why the tickets sold – he should be happy they sold at all.
Eric insisted that the tickets "finally" sold because people had just got around to reading the emails he sent out weeks ago. Steve simply repeated the pre-report sales total: Zero point zero. Fred then began playing the "Zero point zero" clip from "Animal House," which caused an enraged Eric to scream that he was going to break Fred's fingers. Fred was amused: "Did he just threaten me?"
