Richard Christy’s rotting jaw has finally been fixed, but it’s no thanks to his disturbing in-office eating habits. The Stern Show staffer has recently been eating old chicken and warm yogurt while at work. He confirmed as much Wednesday morning, saying he packs the meals in the evening and leaves them out all night unrefrigerated—so he won’t forget them.

“It toughens me up,” Richard told Howard. “You gotta be ready to survive in this world. You know, you never know when we’re gonna have to survive on rotten meat.”

The food both looks and smell repugnant, according to some of Richard’s colleagues. Steve Nowicki said one meal stunk so bad he gagged and had to leave the room. This isn’t the first time Richard’s co-workers have been grossed out by his in-office habits, of course, but Howard worried this latest incident could make him sick.

“You probably can leave chicken out for two hours but not overnight, not safely,” Howard cautioned.

“Well, it’s cool in our house. We put our air conditioning real low,” Richard said to a chorus of laughs.
