Johnny Knoxville stopped by to promote 'Jackass 3D,' and told the crew how he'd originally contacted Howard years ago about wanting to stun-gun himself in-studio.
Howard said the stunt made him too nervous, so Johnny shrugged that using a stun gun was illegal in New York State now anyway: "But I've been stun-gunned so many times, nothing's going to happen." Johnny said he and his 'Jackass' brethren don't feel any less, they're just used to it: "We just have different ways to view pain."
Robin laughed: "We view it as something to avoid!" Howard asked if Johnny still had to use a catheter twice a day, and Johnny nodded: "My penis is broke. It's been over three and a half years." Johnny said the catheter helped keep cartilage from healing in a way that would block his urethra--he had to shove the tube into his penis first thing every morning: "When you got a half-rock, it goes in easier. I've never tried it with a full boner but now I'm going to have to."
On Hell and Ball Chins
Johnny told the crew about the "hell" of filming a 'Jackass' movie: "We find your greatest fear and exploit it...there's no safe area." In the latest film, they even employed the services of Stern show regular Will the Farter: "We asked him to do things with his bottom that he's never done before." This time around, they did their best to the set's hell-party atmosphere beer-free: "We wanted to keep Steve-O sober. We can wait until the end of the day to drink." Asked if he had any great unused bits, Johnny said they'd once considered getting real human balls attached to their faces: "They would sew them to their chin. We would have to go to Mexico or something for that, Howard." The guys would then conduct their lives normally for a week or so--with balls hanging from their chins. Howard laughed that Johnny was doing God's work: "Johnny's trying to get us all to get over our fears. There's a real message."
