Howard came back and said they have a $10,000 prize to give away, courtesy of Cheetah Power Surge, in the World’s Saddest Listener contest. He said he was going to bring in Asian Pete first. He said he’s going to be a good judge for this contest. Howard said Pete used to be Pete the Asian Virgin but he lost his virginity. Howard said he’s a good looking guy but he’s kind of weird. He speaks funny even though he grew up in the United States. He has a speech impediment but he went to a regular school. He thinks that he’s of normal intelligence. Pete said he has a high school diploma.
Howard asked Pete if he knows why he’s there. Pete said it’s for a contest. He tried to say saddest listener but it didn’t sound like that. Gary said he wants to have him in the next IQ test. He figured he’d have a 65 IQ or so.
Robin asked if Pete has a job. Pete said he does and he works in something that sounded like Styrofoam. He was actually saying cell phone. He sells the phones. Robin said that’s crazy. Howard asked here he works. He works in a phone store. Howard asked if he tells people about the phones. Pete said he does and he likes Verizon best. Howard asked what phone he would sell him. He said something unintelligible. Howard asked if he knew what 8×7 was. Pete said no. Robin asked how he can sell phones if he can’t do math. Pete said he works 3-4 days a week.
Howard said he heard he was hitting on Rachel Fine, Richie Wilson’s girl. Pete said no. Howard said he heard he was sending her love letters.
Howard asked when Pete last got pussy. Pete said it was like a week ago. Howard asked if she was normal. He said she was. Howard asked if he’s been going out with her. It turns out it was just a one shot deal. Pete said he gets it frequently. Howard said he’s going to be a good judge today.
Howard told Pete to just hang out during the break and they’ll get to the contest.
World’s Saddest Listener Contest – Ray
After the break Howard came back and said they have more judges in this contest. It’s not just Asian Pete. Howard said they have $10,000 to give away. Howard said they have 3 players, Ray, Dave and Bobby. Howard said Bobby looks like he’s had it pretty tough. Dave too. Ray didn’t look so sad. Howard said he’d start with Ray.
Ray said he didn’t even know what the prize was until a couple of days ago. Howard said that’s because he’s the replacement player for the guy who died. Ray went on to tell his story. He said his wife gave birth to their child last year. She had really bad pain during the pregnancy and it turns out she had cancer. She died 8 months after the diagnosis. Now he’s left with a 15 year old child without a mother. Ray said it’s really tough. He said they never had an argument in the 9 years they were together. He said in 2003 she had a benign cyst removed and she shouldn’t have been able to get pregnant. Howard asked if he has someone to help take care of the kid. He said he has some family around and his sister has 4 kids of her own. She has the baby today but it’s really tough.
Ray said he started a job last year on the same day she was diagnosed. He said he had to take a leave of absence and he went to the hospital and they told him they couldn’t do anything else for her. She would have been 36 years old on March 31st of this year. Ray said he took that leave and the job laid him off. He said he doesn’t have a job now either. Ray said she had to fly home to be with her family in England. He said she wasn’t able to fly commercially so he had to take a private jet to get her around. He said he flew her to England and that used up most of his life savings.
Howard said he has to get a new wife in there and get her working. Ray told Howard that he feels that people know he’s sad and it’s tough to find a woman. Howard asked if he has anger about the kid. He said he’s losing his mind but it’s not fair to blame the child or his wife. He said he also owes money to the city and that’s about $4,400. He said he should pay that off and then buy as much heroin as he can and overdose.
Howard said that’s a sad story. He asked Pete if he understood what was going on. Pete said he has a baby and no job basically. Howard asked if he ever thought of giving the baby up for adoption. Ray said no. He said he needs that child to just go away for a month or so. He said he needs to recoup. He said that seeing his wife decay the way she did was the toughest thing. He told Howard to go give his dad a hug if he’s still around.
Howard asked if the wife got to see the child. Ray said she did get to spent a little time with the baby. He said she had about 4 months of time out of the 8 months she had left. Howard asked when he last had sex. He said it was about 2 years ago. Ray said he doesn’t even care about money.
Howard said maybe Pete can sell Ray a phone. Pete said something that no one understood. Howard said he’s going to let Ray go and get to Dave.
World’s Saddest Listener Contest – Dave
Howard moved on to Dave and said he looks like a mess. He said his outfit was a mess. He has really bad hair too. Dave said back in 2006 he was working full time as an IT manager. He said he had a wife and son and it was going okay. He was going home on a Vespa scooter. He only had a 7 mile commute. He said he was 2 miles away from home and a 16 year old made an illegal left turn and hit him 4 times. He hit him twice and then hit him two more times trying to get away from him. Ray chuckled. Howard asked what was so funny. Dave said that the kid tried to turn the car around and caught him on th bumper which ripped it off the car. He said that he shattered his right knee and broke his leg. He said the bones were sticking up through the muscle and skin. He was lucky to be alive. He said he had broken a bunch of ribs and a bunch of other bones. He said his helmet had cracked in half. He had a head injury too.
Dave said he’s had 14 surgeries on his leg. He said a nurse sneezed into his open wound while changing the dressing. That led to him getting an infection in the leg because of that. He said the bone got infected and that led to his bone getting eaten away. He showed everyone what his leg looks like. The leg was giant according to the guys. Dave said they operated on the leg and took some muscle and grafted it on to that leg.
Dave said his wife had back problems from helping him move around. Dave said it turns out her disks were starting to break down in her back. Pete was smiling during that story so Robin and Howard asked what’s going on there. Pete didn’t explain.
Dave said he and his wife are both disabled. He said that they are able to take care of each other though. He said the kid that hit him only got a ticket for making an illegal left and he beat that ticket. Howard said Dave says he would kill himself if he didn’t have an 8 year old son. Dave said it is something he would think about but he’s tired of being a burden on his wife. He said he has metal in his leg and if he doesn’t win this money he’s going to have that leg amputated. Robin asked if he could sue the hospital since the nurse sneezed on him. Dave said that he’d have to have loss of life or loss of limb to sue. He can’t sue now because the time has passed.
Dave said that there is one guy who can do the work to clean out the infected stuff but he needs that money. He said if he doesn’t get it then he’s going to lose his leg.
Howard said these stories are bad. Ray said that Dave was calling the lawyer a ”weasel” and he was basically calling him a Jew. Ray said Benjy got that too. Howard didn’t think that’s what he was saying. Howard said this is not good for Dave and Ray. They still have Bobby to get to.
World’s Saddest Listener Contest – Bobby
Howard moved on to Bobby who is a gay man. Bobby said he hasn’t had sex in 4 years, 4 months and 22 days. He said he used to be 500 pounds and he’s lost 42 pounds doing Robin’s diet. Bobby said his mother was 13 when she gave birth to him. He said that when he was 3 1/2 years old he saw his mother get raped by her landlord.

Bobby said that his mom married another guy who ended up murdering someone. He said the guy was 6’6” and he beat a jockey to death. Bobby said that this guy went to jail about 4 months after he married his mom. She took him back into the home when he got out. The guy would crawl on top of him and fuck him in the ass at the age of 12. He said he made himself homeless and got out of there.
Bobby said he met his dad who used to be a drug addict who found Jesus. He said he would get the shit beat out of him for being gay when he was there. He said his dad’s wife hated him. He got married at 17 to a girl to stop from getting beat up. He said he got married, got a culinary degree and then his wife found out that he was gay. He said he went down on her once and she was wiping from back to front and she had poop on her vagina so he told her he was done and got out of that marriage.
Bobby said he met a gay man on Gay.com and lived with him for 6 months. He said the guy became very controlling and he would beat the hell out of him on a weekly basis. He said that’s all he ever knew. He said he has scars on his face from getting a Jack Daniels bottle smashed on his face. He was in a coma for months. He said it gets worse.
Bobby said 9 years into the relationship they were doing good. He said that he moved away for a while. He said they had a great relationship but the guy was HIV positive and they became close again. He said they started the process to adopt a kid. He said they got a girl from Mexico and a few months later the guy left for a pack of cigarettes and he ended up getting smashed by a car and dragged for 4 miles. He said that he got his shoe and part of his food. He said he was completely obliterated. The very next day his parents showed up. He said he had never completed the paperwork so his parents took the child away and threw him out of the house. Bobby said they gave him 24 hours to clear out.
Bobby said he moved to North Carolina and he was making $60,000 a year working and wrestling. Then he came out of the closet and got fired from the wrestling thing. Bobby said he met another man and got into a relationship. He said he had a gall bladder explode so he had to go the hospital and the guy he was with ended up ripping him off. He was left with nothing again.
