Gary the Retard
Gary The Retard (born in 1952 and currently living in Albany, Oregon) is a frequent guest on The Howard Stern Radio Show. Gary is mentally challenged. His toothless grin, thick glasses and cheerful attitude make him a favorite among listeners. He is frequently antagonized by Artie, who merely has to say “RETARD!” to elicit an angry yelling tirade from Gary. On August 12, 1998 he was scheduled to appear on the show but got lost at the airport.
A listener who worked at the airport eventually found him and called the show. In 2003, Gary was a member of the show’s weekly football pool along with Daniel Carver , Gary Dell’Abate’s son Jackson, and a chicken named Sanders. Gary the Retard notoriously picked the Seattle Seahawks to win every week, as they are the only NFL team he knows. He works at Burgerville, USA and recently claimed to have a girlfriend that just got out of jail. It has been confirmed by Gary that the woman has been taking advantage of his handicap to get money and access to the show.
