Troubled comic Artie Lange landed in the hospital after stabbing himself nine times in an apparent suicide attempt, sources told The Post. Lange's frantic mom called 911 Saturday morning after she entered his Hoboken apartment and found the bloodied funnyman, a law-enforcement source said.
Galley Boys are slop on top of a so-so burger and a bun you coulde get from a Covneninet food mart generic pack. They the Antoine Joubert of burgers; soft, sloppy, oozing grease and cheap sauce and extremely overrated by a biased fan base. Proof that if you throw enough cheap sauce shit on a burger you still can't overcome the lame burger. -JB

Must have had himself in a 2010 Death Pool.

Guess there's something salvageable when it's an 'attempt'. I can't figure the guy out but I sure do love what he brings to the show when he's there.

Sadly, he's funnier and more compelling when he's all H'd up than when he's sober.

That said, he's done on the show. It feeds his monsters and he needs to leave. Next time you hear him will be down the road as a guest if he lives long enough.

WTF? How in the hell can you stab yourself NINE times?! Once, twice, 3 times. Shouldnt you be in too much pain after the 5th or 6th stab to do it again?

Then again, Artie's fat as fuck. Maybe he stabbed himself, "Shit, I didnt feel that one", tried again, kept going until he got woozy.

Having read his book, I feel for the guy.

He has serious issues that he has never truly resolved and probably never will.

While reading the book I couldn't help but feel the impending tradegy that will strike him and, more importantly, his family and loved ones.

This will just be attempt #1, IMO.
Playing here is the closest thing to heaven. Really, I mean it's amazing to be in a place where the fans truly cherish their football team and stick behind them win or lose. We players love them, too. I feel a sense of accomplishment playing here, we are a special breed of football players with a great opportunity." ~ tOSU LB Brian Rolle

Anyone notice the shirt he was wearing in the pic the NY Post ran?

Obviously a man of impeccable taste and upbringing.

Howard was having a tough time figuring it out this morning. Couldn't read the article on the air. I'm a big Artie fan, but I'm not the least bit surprised. It is sad, both for the family, and for the show.

So who's next in line? Carolla? Fitzsimmons? Dipaolo?

With one year left on the contract, they might not bring in anyone.

If you're trying to kill yourself, why pick that method? Stabbing yourself to death has to be one of the worst ways to go out.

Dirty Work and Beer League are two of the more underrated comedies of all time.

To Fat To Kill Myself should be the title of his next book.

It's a cry for help, IMO. He knows he's f'd up and he can't fix it. He needs help but can't admit it through traditional means.

Beer League falls in the Boogie Nights realm- great start, sputtering climax and finish. Beer League has it's moments, mostly in the first 20 mins.

That's because it wasn't a suicide attempt. Sounds more like a cry for help.

But you never know. If it truly is a suicide attempt... then Mr. Lang is pretty darn stupid/that apathetic/or both.

How do you 'try' to kill yourself?

Never understood that. There aren't many absolutes in life but death is one. Seems to me if you want out it's not all that difficult a task to complete.

Any tall buildings in NYC? No?

What about traffic? Rivers? Copious amounts of available drugs? Guns? Poorly ventilated parking garages?

Sheesh. People half-ass everything these days.

The guy's every waking moment, on air and off, is a cry for help. He needed another one? And to time it when you know your mom is coming over with a food delivery?

I like what Artie gives on the air. He's open, honest and funny because of it.

But this killed only his career. Maybe that's what he was going for. And no one who listens wasn't ready for it.

I think you're all wrong, I think it was a cry for help.

70% of the posts say it was a cry for help including my previous one and yours.

How are we all wrong now?
