For the revised paperback edition of Bill Zehme's "Lost in the Funhouse: The Life and Mind of Andy Kaufman" here's a tip sheet and also the lost paragraphs that failed to make the final print due to pagination constraints:
Page 72: new wording to "whadja do" jack-off song.
Page 337: new paragraph at bottom of page after "he was there, anyway":
From his sister Carol's apartment the following afternoon, however, he called into the popular WLS-AM radio program hosted by Steve Dahl and Garry Meier and reported on the spectacle. (Like Letterman, the radio pair had long provided Andy an on-air open forum for whatever whim he wished to broadcast.) "I have a personal vested interest in anyone that fights Lawler," he said. Dahl and Meier wanted to talk about the SNL vote-off instead. "I don't really care about it," he said. "I don't really miss Saturday Night Live." Dahl challenged: "I think you and Dick Ebersol sat down and cooked up something to get the show ratings and to get some publicity for you." Said Andy, with an audible twinkle: "Maybe we did, maybe we didn't . . ."
Page 341: new parenthetical into first paragraph -- "After the final credits rolled (in which the absent Zmuda was wryly listed as "Invisible Man")...

He clutched a paper bag containing a box of Kleenex because he felt the onset of a cold. The radio hosts had invited him to surprise their audience by wrestling actor James Belushi in a tub of Jello. He could not refuse. It was nice to be near a club audience again, even if the people were there to see somebody else.
Anyway, he sat quietly onstage long after he wrestled Belushi to a draw. Not to be funny, he just sat there on the bandstand and watched the radio boys do their act and wiped his nose frequently.
Page 344: second paragraph, add sentence after last sentence:
. . . something else to do. Morton witnessed the signing of the will instead, in the privacy of his Late Night office.
