Howard asked Artie how his performance at Bubbapalooza went, so Artie recounted the lovefest that closed out the show. Artie added that it was a good time, but the funniest part was actually how the XXXL Mike Schmidt jersey that Bubba was wearing could've fit three Mike Schmidts. Artie also described his second favorite part: Bubba brought out an underwear-clad employee and beat him with a wiffleball bat.
Artie said he hadn't realized it until just now, but he fell off the wagon at Bubbapalooza after a fan gave him a drink before his set. Howard was surprised that Artie could stay dry through the trip to Afghanistan and his own party only to give it all up in of all places - Atlantic City. Artie replied that the crowd had cheered him on, and he wasn't behaving all that well to begin with: I [also] took a couple of puffs out of something they had there.
