Some of you may have noticed that I haven't swapped out photos in several days. The reason is that it is Spring
, and I am busy doing things around the house and yard. I should resume working on my website in the next few days.
In the meantime, I heard something today that put a smile on my face
. I was so happy, and it made my day.
First, a little back story. Obviously, my username in this Forum
. As some Forum members
already know (because I have written about this in the past), there are 3 different versions (or incarnations) of Meepzorp
in the media. The first 2 versions are "Saturday Night Live" (the "Coneheads" sketches) and Disney. The thought of using Meepzorp
as my username is from the third version of Meepzorp
, which is the "Howard Stern Show".
As some Forum members
already know, I am a huge Howard Stern fan. I have been listening to his
radio show almost every single day since 1984, when I was 16 years old. Several years ago, Howard and his
staff created a character called "Meepzorp
", who is an alien from outer space. Howard's staff members
used to prank call Riley Martin
(one of Howard's Whack Pack members
) as Meepzorp
. It was hilarious. I think those are some the greatest prank phone calls ever made. Every time I heard them, I would be hysterical laughing. That is the reason why I selected "Meepzorp
" as my username for this Forum
Unfortunately, Riley passed away a few years ago. And Meepzorp
was never heard from again - until today.
Today, on the "Howard Stern Show", during the "Jeopardy" segment, Howard was talking to High Register Sean (another one of Howard's Whack Pack members
) on the phone. And Meepzorp
I hadn't heard from him in a long time. In fact, Howard himself said, "We haven't heard from Meepzorp
When I heard Meepzorp
's voice, it immediately put a smile on my face
. And I screamed out, "Meepzorp
!" I was so happy to hear his
If any Forum members
have SiriusXM satellite radio, they can hear it because Howard's show re-plays on a continuous loop all day long on channel 100. As I mentioned above, Meepzorp
called in during the "Jeopardy" segment. Meepzorp
