click on jocks, then morning sickness, then bios.

I already sent him an email myself..
2002-10-04 08:55:36 AM  
We need an "asshat" tag in the worst way. Preferably not an animated jiggling-cheek .gif.
2002-10-04 08:56:26 AM  
"Funny as a crutch, Rich"
2002-10-04 08:56:59 AM  
I'm a non-violent person that prefers to solve problems with negotiation and compromise.

That being said, I'd love to spend a good afternoon causing this guy pain. Some people deserve to get their ass kicked. This guy is begging to get his ass kicked.

Let's send a 'roided up Mark McGwire over to his house. Should be entertaining.
2002-10-04 08:58:04 AM  
not funny
2002-10-04 08:59:35 AM  
what a jerk, he should be fired, that's not funny in the least
2002-10-04 08:59:58 AM  
Somebody needs to bust out the 55-gallon drum of whoopass on this dude. That's just plain wrong on so many levels.
2002-10-04 09:01:06 AM  
Ebola's too good for this low life sack of shiat,
hopefully karma will be a motherfarker to this prick.
2002-10-04 09:02:24 AM  
Fired shiat. He needs a good old fashioned American law-suit up his arse.
2002-10-04 09:02:37 AM  
It wasn't even funny. What the fark? If you're gonna be an ass at least try to be somewhat funny. He should be fired.
2002-10-04 09:03:10 AM  
Someone call in the Narn Bat Squad, we have a new target for 'em...
2002-10-04 09:03:18 AM  
Why hasn't he been fired? There have been radio personalities in other places fired for less than this. What an asshole.
2002-10-04 09:03:50 AM  
What an idiot this guy is. She wouldn't have a date to the game because she's probably doing somebody else on the team already.
2002-10-04 09:04:03 AM  
tasteless, rude, insensitive, and completeley asshatulous! i can't imagine ANYONE finding that funny.
2002-10-04 09:04:55 AM  
Thanks for the link to the station, I sent an Email to the program director giving him my thoughts.
2002-10-04 09:04:59 AM  
Friggin' morning DJs suck. This is just cruel. I wonder if anybody laughed out in radioland.

Is there a worse job than DJ? Seriously.

Hell, he could have sent a couple of people to have sex in a church or something, and that would have been funnier.
2002-10-04 09:05:34 AM  

the guy at this address needs a date that bad? no problem. let's subscribe him for some spam: porn, escort services, etc.
2002-10-04 09:05:37 AM  
It's amazing how mean some people can be in a desperate attempt to draw attention to themselves. Some people never grow up, I guess.
2002-10-04 09:05:54 AM  
This guy needs his ass kicked. There is rude, and then there is just being a cocksucker. This guy is a cocksucker.
2002-10-04 09:06:23 AM  
Radio is the bastion of the witless, crude, cruel, and juvenile. I've never heard a truly clever or insightful comment from any popular radio host. Not Stern, not Rush, none of them. Just goes to show that success is sadly independent of quality in mainstream America.
2002-10-04 09:06:40 AM  
Are there any local Farkers that could put together a list of the stations advertisers,once they get wind of this stunt the asshole will be finished.
2002-10-04 09:06:41 AM  
Drive time radio gives major market radio a bad name. And considering how truly putrid major market radio already is, that says something.
2002-10-04 09:06:50 AM  
Well I laughed, that's probably because I am British and thus I have a sense of humour ;-)
2002-10-04 09:06:58 AM  
Just plain cruel. I can't imagine what she must have thought getting that call.
2002-10-04 09:07:12 AM  
Tasteless, crude and insensitive is OK if it's at least funny. There was nothing funny about this.

That being said, this guy should be strung-up. This wasn't merely insensitive, it was mean-spirited.
2002-10-04 09:07:27 AM  
HAHAHAHAHHAHAH!!! THAT WAS FUNNY. I wonder why she hung up?
2002-10-04 09:07:39 AM  
i was wondering where Opie and Anthony went...
2002-10-04 09:09:08 AM  
I don't get it.....I mean, how on earth did this guy get the sparkling thought in those grinding cogwheels he calls a brain that doing this would be funny and amusing?

Did he think "I'll call her up and ask her if she has a date...HYUK HYUK....cuz...y'know...her husband's she should be available! haw haw haw!!"
2002-10-04 09:09:13 AM  
I'm sure any farker here who's done radio can tell you there are simply some subjects you don't try to joke about, because they're just not funny, in any way.

I could see Todd Clem doing something this stupid, except to a different target.

Nice that this guy uses his time and microphone to harass widows instead of at least trying to open minds, or at least crack jokes about the idiots running the city/state/country.
2002-10-04 09:09:49 AM  
I loved that Tony La Russa called his ass out and threatened to put a smackdown on him.

La Russa said. ``If we could get our hands on them, we would deal with them physically. It was so brutal that something should happen to them. I hope whoever was responsible gets nailed.''

I'd watch mt back if I was him....oh and........

2002-10-04 09:10:53 AM  

Radio Scam


Ok, not really. What a douche.
2002-10-04 09:10:53 AM  
I hope she sues the station ... she has an open-and-shut case for intentional infliction of emotional distress, the jury would take 30 seconds to rule in her favor.

Bankrupt the bastards.
2002-10-04 09:11:51 AM  
The hypocritical thing is that a lot of people on FARK make jokes like these, maybe not regularly but be it baseball players, dems/reps, arabs, etc. it's all the same idiocy.
2002-10-04 09:12:01 AM  
What a farking asshole.
2002-10-04 09:12:36 AM  
I have this image in my head of a bunch of guys in Cardinals uniforms strapping C4 to this station's transmitter...
2002-10-04 09:14:37 AM  
That's just sick.
2002-10-04 09:14:49 AM  
Needs to be shot.
2002-10-04 09:16:22 AM  
Jova:- Not hypocritical. Making a joke about a dead person can be humorous. Torturing a widow on the phone about her recently dead husband is not.
2002-10-04 09:16:39 AM  
Jova There's a bit of a difference between making stupid comments amongst friends and relatives, and calling a widow for some stupid prank.

2002-10-04 09:17:16 AM  
Jove- I think the difference here is that we can make these jokes amongst ourselves on Fark vs. going out and inflicting ourselves on the widow.
2002-10-04 09:17:17 AM  
Jova: So right, lets have a bit of proportion from those wearing their hypocrisy hats

Gator8387: 'intentional infliction of emotional distress', Wow! is there really such crime in the States? That's hilarious if true.
2002-10-04 09:17:29 AM  
Jova: no, not quite. While Farkers can be cruel and even downright despicable at times, there is a sense of fairness at play here. Or poetic justice.

This site tends to only bash those who deserve it. This woman....Kile's widow....did she deserve to get a public crank call like that? She didn't do anything to anyone. She's just trying to live her friggin' life. The last thing she needs is some fratfark DJ rubbing her face in the despair I imagine she's spent the better half of this year in.
2002-10-04 09:17:35 AM  
We need to get this guy's home telephone number, then we could have some real fun
2002-10-04 09:18:27 AM  
Jova: But farkers are making the jokes in a comments section and not saying it to the person's face. Big difference.
2002-10-04 09:18:55 AM  
media-frenzy. The joke was in bad taste.. but I think it's far from brutal. She probably is boinking someone else now anyway. I say let the guy be an asshat in peace. There are bigger fish to fry in our country.
2002-10-04 09:19:03 AM  
they're having a chat on AOL at "beauisanidiot"
2002-10-04 09:19:24 AM  
...yeah, what everyone else said.
2002-10-04 09:19:50 AM  
His face could be used as a catchers mitt. Or his groin.
2002-10-04 09:20:16 AM  
Tell me again why Ron and Fez got fired and this asshat isn't?
2002-10-04 09:20:36 AM  
[image from too old to be available]

from :

"Whoever is responsible should suffer serious and dire consequences," said Cardinals manager Tony La Russa. "If we could get our hands on him ... I mean, that is so brutal, that something really significant should happen to him."
