I got an email from someone saying they heard about metafilter "on the stern show." Does anyone know of any online archives of it? I can't seem to find any at,, or any of his affiliate sites.

"A George, divided against itself... cannot stand."

Are Mefi George and Bababooie George going to come to fisticuffs?

owillis- I met bababooie in the bookstore I used to work in. He was actually pretty cool. Plus, Hank the Angry Drunken Dwarf(RIP. brother) once proposed to my best freinds girlfreind. You get to meet Cuba Gooding, Jr., this is what I run into. Strange world.
I think Matt should email Howard himself. Maybe he'll get to be a guest-that I'd stay up to watch.

As long as they don't make Matt do all the stuff they make the female guests do.

Yeah, you'd sure hate to hear him struggling with one of those current events quizzes....

i love the howard stern show and try to listen every morning... i also love mefi and probably visit here more than any other site (combined)... but i just don't think the two would mix well. to tell you the truth, it seems improbable that either would be too big of a hit on the other's stomping grounds. not that i wouldn't make time to catch it.

and i don't think there's a publicly available archive. i've tried looking before with no success. i could be a bad searcher though...

I don't think there's much overlap either, and frankly I'm kind of scared by the idea of it, but it surprises me that the site would ever get mentioned on the show, which is why I wanted to find out if it really happened.

No overlap? How can you say that? Just imagine: "So I'm searching on that Internet thing for really hot Scooby Doo Porn. And I come across this site MetaFilter. Have you heard of this place. Yeah, so I'm reading and the screen was blue, and it's full of all these nuts. Yeah, blue nuts it reminded me of my wedding night....ooh look stripper boobies!"

My stupid username alone causes overlap.
