I’m not one of those dickheads who cries about Stern changing while playing the old “remember when game”. I mean, I’m certainly a dickhead, I’m just not that kind of dickhead. I catch almost all the Stern shows and absolutely love Sternthology and the compilations they put together. I even listen to the wrapup show with Gary Del’abate, Jan Hein & Rashawn and I’ve been known to get lost for hours down Stern show rabbit holes on YouTube.
Let’s face some basic facts together. Times have changed and some of the changes are progression and some are not. I am not remotely upset that Gary the Conqueror & Wendy the Slow Adult are the new monikers for 2 of the greatest wackpackers in history. Many fans point to the moniker changes as Howard bowing down to PC culture. I don’t see it. At all. We don’t need to disparage people with disabilities for shits and giggles and that’s generally recognized by everyone.
Many people on social media have pointed to the hiring of “Marci Turk” years back as the catalyst for all the change. Maybe. Maybe I don’t give a fuck. Maybe she’s the reason the show is still on and still funny. Maybe she’s the reason Howard Stern hasn’t had the modern day outrage profiteers like Deadspin attacking him or his sponsors. Years past it was the religious right and the FCC that stalked his every turn.
Howard announced this past that he’d authored a new book, “Howard Comes Again”, his first in 20 or so years. Upon hearing the news Wendy Williams tossed a few digs Howard’s way, claiming that he’d changed. Well let me tell you old friend, if he had changed it was not evident in what transpired after Howard heard the clip.
Howard flipped tits and went on a glorious rant that used the “cunt” word many many times over. This “cunt” word, for some reason, offends so many and it’s why I love it. Generally speaking, swearing is a social construct and being offended is a learned behavior. It’s also, generally speaking, a “cunt” behavior. The Seaword is a genderless insult so save your misogynistic claims and your desperate tears Stuttering John, you whiney “cunt”.

Normally this isn’t remotely blog worthy. Normally I wouldn’t give 2 shits about this. I would have laughed at the segment and moved on, but this time was different. For some reason the audio has been completely scrubbed from the record, like it never happened. I can’t imagine a valid reason to edit radio on satellite radio. Frankly, I’m nervous that “cunts” have cancelled the “cunt” word.
Viva la seaword!
