Stars for Robin's delivery of "Let's go back us some coons".
You were close for a non-Southerner. She actually said, "Bag us a'couple coons."
I miss Howard. Why did he have to go away? $$$ I guess :(
THA SUGAH RAIN
There was basically a decade of him at war with his employer for like half his show every morning. At some point the bullshit ceased and he disappeared to alien radio.
Just because my interest peaked on the statement that [paraphrasing] "people tried to explain that the name wasn't in reference to black people", I googled around to see what niggerhead could mean.
Of course, the worse place to look for accurate information entertained me the most. From Urban Dictionary (http://bit.ly/nkpIrB):
1. An antiquaited logging and trucking term used to define a large round rock or outcropping of rocks usually on an unpaved road bed that could damage a vehicle.
Now be careful up here,there's a niggerhead as you come out of the turn.
2. A strong black chewing tobacco, usually in twisted plug form.
3. Being extremely lazy and/or stupid.
Also, I came across this nifty little article about it: http://bit.ly/qQuNPg
Thanks poeTV for prompting me to take the time out of my day to learn some things about the history and use of language.
Now, excuse me, I'm going to go chow down on some Nigger Toes.
"Yeah, see? It's just a bunch of rocks." Cena_mark, occupational jackass.
After reading my post, I feel I should make it explicitly clear that I do find the use of Niggerhead extremely offensive. But, much like the term Nigger Toes, I also find it extremely interesting from a etymological standpoint, in the sense of how racism really embedded itself in our language much more deeper than I ever thought before.

+1 because this is the first time I've listened to this guy for years and he is really starting to sound like somebody's granddad!
Yeah what's up with that, does he have dentures already?
I don't remember him sounding like Donald Duck before. Thuffering Thucatash.
Wow. When Howard Stern calls you racially insensitive...
