Howard played a clip from The Bubba the Love Sponge Show in which Bubba addressed him over the air, saying he wanted a Stern-penned foreword for his book--but knew better than to ask for it: "If [you] would like to do it, please say so...I'm just not going to make the mistake to ask you."
As the clip continued, Brent, Bubba's producer, offered some valuable insight: "He would take it as a favor if you don't ask him."
Howard agreed: "How come Brent knows me better than anybody? I love Bubba. But Bubba, I don't want to write anymore forwards."
