Nobody was more surprised by Donald Trump winning the White House than Stern Show staffer Brent Hatley who was so confident Hillary Clinton would become the next President of the United States, he bet his balls. He assured fellow staffer Memet Walker that, if Hillary didn’t rack up at least 40 states in the Electoral College, he would wax his pubes. A few days after Donald was declared the winner, Brent made good on his promise and had all of the hair on his testicles ripped off on air.

Rumors began to swirl in 2016 that Medicated Pete had an impressively large penis. When asked about his own size, however, Pete claimed he wasn’t sure whether or not his manhood was big. The only way to settle it was to have Robin Quivers take a look, so Pete took down his pants, live on the air, and stood in front of Robin’s glass booth.

“Oh my goodness. That’s a big one,” Robin said after seeing Pete in all his glory.

Meet Steve From Florida

After years of calling the Stern Show as Bobo, one of Howard’s biggest fans now must be identified by a different name.

“We caught him stealing a line from Greg Gutfeld,” Howard remembered on Tuesday’s year in review.

“He almost made it through the year, actually, without getting in trouble, but the election did him in,” Robin said.

After using a joke Greg Gutfeld previously used on his Fox News show “The Five,” Bobo was reprimanded for his plagiarism with a mandatory 750-word essay – with his final punishment depending on the grade he was given by a fifth grade teacher. Once she evaluated what he wrote and scored him a D, Bobo became Steve from Florida.
