Doug Stanhope stopped by to catch up and told the crew his girlfriend Bingo was "normal" now that she's on the right meds: "Now I just think she's kind of dopey." Doug said Bingo was taking a cocktail of lithium, Lexapro, Temazepam and a few others: "She's never boring...but she's not running down the street naked talking into a manhole like it's a telephone."
Howard asked why Doug had recently cut back on his stand-up dates, so Doug admitted to a little psychosis of his own: "I started to hate the sound of my own voice...I got hate mail and I started to agree with it." Doug said he tried to get over it with a trip to Alaska, and while it used to be crazy and full of brothels - it's become a police state in the Palin-era. Robin asked if he had gone bear hunting or anything like that, but Doug just laughed at the idea: "I don't know. It all looked like the inside of a bar to me."
Coke-Fueled Threesome with Ginger Lynn
Doug told the crew that he recently had a threesome with Ginger Lynn - just so he would have something interesting to talk about on the show today. Howard asked if Ginger still looked good, and Doug laughed: "For her age. Anytime you have to handicap the compliment...I learned one thing: anytime you're having a threesome in a sleazy hotel with a pile of stepped-on blow and Ginger Lynn, you should do it 1983."
Doug said he and Bingo paired off with Ginger so they could do blow away from the crowds at the hotel bar: "It's not a team sport. It was to narrow down the players." After the girls talked for a couple hours, things escalated quickly: "I think it probably started with [Bingo] doing coke off [Ginger's] vagina." Doug claimed Bingo took good direction: "Ginger Lynn wasn't very clinical but she was - how do you say it? A coach." Doug added that the worst part of the evening came when an inebriated Bingo proudly admitted to faking the orgasm she had when she rode the Sybian the last time she was here. Even Howard was disheartened by this news.
