On Thursday, Oct. 21 the guests on the Howard Stern
Radio Show (WXRK, 92.3 FM, 6 - 10 a.m. in NYC) were the Vegan Vixens, a
group of about five young women appearing to publicize their cookbook.
They were put through a number of 'truth or dares' - if
they don't kiss each other, Stern will kill a hamster; if they
don't show their boobs, stern will spray a lethal substance on meal
worms, etc. They complied with each 'dare' in order that no beings be
The 'hamster' turned out to be a sock; Howard stated he
wouldn't kill an animal; his new bastard sidekick Artie said "I
would." How noble he is.
Robin Quivers, longtime sidekick and frequent advocate
for animals and vegetarianism, surprisingly stated "Why are you
only offering to kill hamsters and worms? Why not dogs and cats?" And,
of course, the reason is that Howard Stern knows that mainstream
audiences would scream bloody murder over that.
Though the women were razzed as per Stern usuals, when
they did a 'cheer' about going vegan, which included lyrics
about how vegans were better in bed and more naturally slender, his
sidekicks shut up.
The 'cheer' also had lyrics about not wearing fur,
eating lobster gives you DDT, and vegan ccoking.
This is a very popular radio show; but since Howard
Stern is considered disgusting by many, you may feel there's no
point in responding, which is understandable; he has, however,
come out against hunting, against grayhound racing, and against
dairy. For those who wish to make comments or complaints, his

His website has
someone's notes on this show, which aren't very kind - the show was actually a
bit better than the notes indicate: www.howardstern.com

It contains merchandise, links, and info on how what you eat and
wear affects the environment, health, etc.
