Calling all the way from Kuwait on Tuesday’s show was a 16-year-old kid named Slayman who has been listening to the Stern Show for over a decade now. He told Howard he began collecting cassette tapes of the show when he was just 6 and has been a fan ever since.

Slayman told Howard of his aspirations to make it to America someday and Howard responded that he might have a plan.

“Maybe I’ll adopt you,” he told Slayman. “Think of all my Twitter followers. They’ll be so excited.” If he can’t legally adopt Slayman, perhaps they can get him a green card by way of marrying Robin Quivers.

Right now Slayman is studying hard so he can attend college in the U.S. in the hopes of becoming a filmmaker.
