Howard unleashed a new phony phone call from master pranksters Sal Governale and Richard Christy on Monday which involved several increasingly heated exchanges with a high-strung Swap Shop host hellbent on enforcing a very strict set of rules for his callers.
“This is a very strong phony phone call. A lot of ball busting,” Howard said before playing the clip, adding, “I’m gonna say, Sal—he seemed kind of angry before you called in.
“Oh my god,” Sal agreed, “It was like throwing us a softball.”
Take a listen to the call, which originated as a prank designed to promote “Howard Stern Comes Again” and ended with the host inviting Richard and Sal to come down and host the show themselves (below).
