The Stern Show descended into chaos Wednesday morning after Howard simultaneously took a call from multiple listeners in Arizona named Bill.

“Hey now, can you hear me?” the first one asked.

“Hello?” the second one interrupted.

“Hello, Bill? Hello?” Howard fired back. “Bill, are you there in Arizona? Hello?”

The callers continued talking over each other, sending more hellos in every direction. Staffer Shuli Egar and the Tan Mom Puppet eventually jumped into the mix, leading to further bedlam. “Jiminy Cricket, I can’t hear anyone,” the Tan Mom Puppet said.

The pandemonium left staffer JD Harmeyer and co-host Robin Quivers in stitches. At one point, one of the Bills seemed to grow agitated. “We have nine people on the phone at once,” he said.

“No, it’s just me, Bill from Arizona,” another Bill responded.

Howard eventually hit a breaking point. “Alright, I’ve had enough,” he said. “I think I got caught in multiple universes.”

“There must’ve been a bunch of lines that converged, but all from people named Bill,” Robin suggested with a laugh.
