Most people know that Pearl Jam’s original name was Mookie Blaylock, a tribute to the NBA player and former Oklahoma Sooner.

Jim Traber, host of the popular radio program Loud Guy Yells At People, is one person we all love to hate. Frankly, I don’t think it would be such fun if it wasn’t so apparent how much it gets under his skin. Seriously, folks, check out that twitter feed. That is one angry dude.
