Boots on the Ground Tackles ‘Boehner’ Pronunciation

It can’t be easy for the average person with a bland name to comprehend just how many boner jokes that House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) has had to endure in the course of his lifetime.

So what’s a few more?

Joey Boots, contributor to the Howard Stern Show and wayward videographer, has advice on how we should all be saying the Speaker’s name. What’s he trying to do, make Boehner cry?

And then he went for the tear jerker and spoke of American being potentially dumb, no less a few days before the 4th.

UPDATE: An anonymous reader writes in, “Actually, since Boehner is a German name, it would be pronounced closer to “Burner.” Not a question of dumbing down English; just dumbing down German.

Boots on the Ground: Rep. Rangel Flips Boots the Bird

Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-N.Y.) has endured his fair share of scandal, which can make for uncomfortable encounters in public when perfect strangers like video journalist (this might be putting it generously) Joey Boots start heckling him.

During the recent Puerto Rican Day Parade in the Bronx, Rangel was riding in a red convertible happily waving to the crowd like a Miss America winner when Boots began shouting at him truck driver style.

Provoking him, one might say: “HEY CHARLIE CHARLIE! YOU’RE A CROOK. YOU’RE A CROOK. YOU’RE CHEATING ON YOUR TAXES. YOU’RE A CROOK. … YOU’RE A CROOK CHARLIE. YOU CROOK. CHARLIE YOU’RE A CROOK. CHARLIE YOU’RE A CROOK. YOU’RE A CROOK CHARLIE. … CHARLIE YOU’RE NOTHING BUT A CROOK. … YOU SHOULD BE IN JAIL.”

It’s safe to say Boots handles his own publicity. In tweets this morning, he wrote to FNC’s RedEye, to WaPo and more to say that Rangel had given him the finger four times. Maybe something to put on his resumé?

Boots, whose work has appeared on the Howard Stern Show, is well-known for his antics. Read more

Howard Stern Show Regular Chances Upon FNC’s Tucker Carlson Fishing in Central Park

“You’re in public, I can record you.”

This is Howard Stern Show Contributor and videographer Joey Boots‘ stock line as he approaches strangers in New York City and videotapes fucks with them. As Gothamist reported over the weekend, this is what happened to FNC “Fox & Friends” Co-Host and Daily Caller Editor-in-Chief Tucker Carlson, who was enjoying quiet time by himself fly fishing for Largemouth Bass in Central Park when Boots approached.

“What is that?” Carlson asked. Boots replied, “It’s called a video camera.” Carlson: “Are you videotaping me?” Boots: “Yeah.” Carlson: “Why?” Boots: “Because you’re in public, I can.”

Asked to comment on the experience, Carlson told FishbowlDC: “If you’re fly fishing in Manhattan, you can’t complain when you run into a videocam-wielding Howard Stern fan. It’s a different vibe from your average Montana trout stream for sure, but basically I enjoyed it.”

Later on in the video Carlson and Boots exchange semi-niceties. Boots wants to know where the fly fisherman grew up. “California,” Carlson says. Later Carlson remarks, “I can tell by your manner that you’re from New York.” Boots: “Get the hell out of here! Is it my accent?” Carlson: “It’s everything about you.”

Carlson had clearly never heard of Boots. Boots hadn’t the foggiest idea who Carlson was. And Gothamist doesn’t appear to know Carlson either… Read more
