Howard Stern's website can't handle pervert traffic, collapses

If you're even vaguely interested in the Radio business regardless of where you live in the world, you've heard of Howard Stern.  He's been getting up in the wee hours of the morning and speaking into the mic for well over 35 years.  If you're under 20 or are a religious nutjob you probably know him as a disgusting pervert, sexist, racist etc or you know him as a judge on America's Got Talent.

Howard Stern
But the truth is, Mr Stern is a broadcasting genius and innovator the likes of which we'll never see again.  He was a hellraiser and a rebel at the forefront of what is now known as reality TV in the '80s.  I was first introduced to him as a teenager growing up in South Africa when an American exchange student gave me a tape with his show and was immediately blown away by not only his fearless and provocative delivery but the willingness to go where other broadcaster were not willing to, reveal a lot of his personal struggles and triumphs.

I've followed his career since and was encouraged when he signed the biggest contract (rumoured to be $500 million over 5 years) with Sirius Satellite Radio in 2005.  This is not a eulogy, he's alive and well, now for the boobs.  Yesterday, she invited a young woman with very nice boobs but wanted to have them reduced into the show.  Kelsey, the young woman stripped from the waist up for him and his studio staff so they could assess her assets before they advised her not to reduce them, and she heeded the advise.  They then took her pictures and put them on his website but it crashed immediately afterwards due to the sheer amount of traffic.  They fixed it but it crashes everytime the replay comes on and new people hear about the boobs and are keen to have a look and arrive at their conclusions.

Being the nice person that I am I've decided to help my fellow perverts by publishing the pictures here (I lifted them off my browser cache).  It seems none of Mr Stern's 30 odd army of staffers can work out how to keep the website online, but I, an England based community radio guy with no producer can at less than $100 a year.  And unlike all the people who have copied him all over the world, when I finally break free of these terrestrial radio shackles and do a show similar to his, I'll credit Mr Stern for the inspiration.  Unlike the countless copycats the world over who pretend they've never even heard of him.
