"Sarge" - the host of a call-in tagsale show in Utah - was fired for a comment he made when a man called to sell a Mexican roping saddle.

Sarge was asked for his keys by a program manager, but didn't grasp that he was actually fired until he read about it in The Daily News (no website known), according to The Salt Lake Tribune.
