I believe this is a rehash story from when Artie talked about the film concerning the jumpers that committed suicide from off the Golden Gate bridge. I think he told the story in 2005 or 2006. He might have related it to the GW bridge, but it stemmed from when he saw the documentary about the suicide attempts made over the span of the Golden Gate bridge.

So its kind of an embellishment, because it seems to me he added a first hand account and made it local if you live in the NY/NJ area.

I can't say for certain. I seem to remember him telling a story about people stuck in the mud that jumped off of a bridge, but it was from years ago. You'd have to search through Marksfriggin to find out when Artie saw the bridge movie. He mentioned the movie a few times that week and that was one of the stories I remember hearing.

Apparently, most of the show is a lie. Howard's life, Artie's stories, the show's interpersonal dynamics - even the prank calls. Depending on who you talk to, that either matters a lot, or you're an idiot for thinking it matters at all. I'm in the former camp. The only thing I'm pretty sure about is that Richard Christy is a man-child.

Gee do I care enough to research artie's stories, I am thinking not. :no:

But I am pretty sure that he said today that a cop friend of his told him about the jumpers on the GW getting stuck in the riverbed after jumping.

Yup the show is pretty much a work of fiction in progress, and with the exception of artie's repetitive :bs: stories I am OK with it. I find it entertaining and a good way to kill some time on the way to work.

As the myths began to unravel (when Howard got his divorce), I did feel a little misled. You mean Howard isn't an everyman? You mean he's a hypocrite, just like all the people he makes fun of? But I kept listening as long as the show remained entertaining. Ironically, what we're hearing now maybe closer to the real Stern than before. Clearly, he had to work pretty hard to keep up the "tortured family man" charade, and it burned him out.
