While it's Ronnie "the Limo Driver" Mund's job to get Howard to work every day, in his free time he enjoys penning poetry. Lots and lots of poetry. Some of Ronnie's written works, like "Winter" and "Twitter," have become Stern Show classics, but he's not the only wordsmith to share their rhymes on the air.
Check out the full list of Stern Show poems (below).
Jimmy Kimmel's Ode to Howard Stern
The poetry of Ronnie Mund proved to be a huge hit with Stern Show listeners, including celebrity superfan Jimmy Kimmel. He wrote an ode to Howard in the style of Mr. Mund during a 2014 appearance. Hear him read it while doing his best Ronnie impression in the audio clip (below).
JD Harmeyer's Poem to Katy Perry
After hearing the news that Katy Perry and Russell Brand were splitting up, Stern Show staffer JD Harmeyer quickly got to work writing the pop star a poem he hoped would win her heart. Check out the video (above).
Ronnie Mund's First Poem 'Winter'
In 2011, it was revealed on the Wrap Up Show that Ronnie liked writing poetry for women he fancied—a move he said worked better than just sending flowers. Robin Quivers couldn't believe the limo driver had such a hobby and she commissioned him to write her a poem about winter. Here's what he came up with:
Winter is when there are no leaves on the trees
Winter is when when we say goodbye to the birds and the bees
Winter is when we get an extra hour of Z's
Winter is when a red-suited man brings us all lots of glee
Winter is when the snow falls and we yell, "Happy New Year!"
Winter is when you turn that special girl or guy's heart bright red with love and cheer
Until this time again next year
Winter goes away and the birds and bees and extra hour of Z's
All go back to where they should be
Since Ronnie was unwilling to read his poem on air, JD Harmeyer read it for him. Check out the audio (below).
Ronnie's Fiancée Stephanie Writes a Poem
Ronnie isn't the only one in the Mund household to give poetry writing a try—his then girlfriend Stephanie gave it a shot in 2013. Check out her poem "Us" (below) which ends with her hoping she and Ronnie would someday get married.
I was bartending away with my plans in hand
Then suddenly intruded this man
When he makes me laugh he brings me to tears
So what if there is 33 years
Instead of dreams of a wild bachelorette for life
It turned into dreams of a partner for life
As he wooed me with his mysterious woman-whispering ways
They engulfed me and I knew I would always have a place to stay
We are not really all that risqué
It's just our forte to seem that way
I dutch-oven him all the time
We're the best during our downtime
Living with the Mund is an adventurous time
With memories that will last a lifetime
What more can I say
I love when I make him go to Broadway
I couldn't have planned a better, unpredictable, crazy, non-stop, normal life
Maybe someday he'll make me his WIFE
Five Years Later, Ronnie Mund's Anniversary Poem 'Twitter'
In honor of Ronnie's fifth anniversary since writing his first Stern Show poem "Winter," he put pen back to paper for a new masterpiece called "Twitter." Once again, JD read his words on the air. Check them out and hear the poem for yourself (below).
Twitter works best for me when I'm on the shitter
My best thoughts come out in many different ways for me to consider
Do I post pictures of Hot Girls of the Week with total class?
Or do I retweet pictures of Emilio's girls with all different size ass?
Do I Tweet for devil heads or two smiley faces?
Such a tuff decision that must be divided
Twitter: it's about meeting guys, meeting girls, and a fun way for you to consider
I have to leave the bowl now
My thoughts have run out now
In many different ways
All I can say now is enjoy your holidays
Howard's Birthday Poem From Ronnie
On his 61st birthday, Howard received the gift of poetry from Ronnie, who wrote a special piece for his boss's special day. Check out "Sixty-One Years" (below).
It was January 12th in the 1950s
A time when music and radio where kind of nifty
At this time a stork delivered a boy named Stern
Whose name would change radio and make it diffy
As the years went by, his words would be heard
By many radio bosses who would think his manner was iffy
Along came the FCC and would turn his life into turmoil in a jiffy
Alas, a satellite in the sky would make a venue where Stern could say "I've got a stiffy"
Today, sixty-one years later, the nifty, diffy, iffy, jiffy, stiffy Stern can say to them all, "F*ck off!"
"Look what I've done, look what I've earned"
Happy Birthday Du!
George Takei Inspires Ronnie's Poem 'Guest Announcer'
When George Takei came on the Stern Show in 2012, Ronnie was ready with a short poem for our official announcer. Read it (below).
He arrives at the station at the break of day
Green tea, oatmeal, fruit before he starts to play
He has no problem telling the world he is gay
He will play with a guest's cock even though Brad will scold him later in the day
That is why we love George Takei
