Howard Stern can make or break you. If youre the band Gloritone, you lose credibility, but if youre Florida shock jock Bubba the Love Sponge, the Stern connection can nab you millions of brand-new, like-minded listeners. The Absorbent One was dropped from Clear Channel in 2004 and picked up by Howard 101 on Sirius in 2006, but according to l'éponge d'amours blog, there may soon be a parting of these waves, also. Even Howard must have his limits.
A few years earlier, Bubba gained infame when he orchestrated the public castration and death of a wild boar, but more recently, hes been pulling a fat-and-ugly Andy Kaufman by boxing women. Perhaps with his BubbaPalooza manly show for manly men on Friday, December 14, Bubba will experiment with his art -- for instance, the 12 Boobs of Christmas calendar, where the selected winners get boob jobs, their own month, and we're sure, an immediate acting career. We think our Boob Calendar would include Sheriff Joe as October, stuffed into a sexy gazelle costume sporting a big red target on his ass.
