[insert weight-associated epithet*] John Hodgman on this week's "This American Life"

Speaking to a live audience in Los Angeles about getting noticed now that he's a TV star:
The Apple Store. Soho.
[audience laughs]
General storewide freak-out.
[even more laughter]
There are waves of double takes as I walk to buy a cable. The store greeter cannot believe it is me. She jumps up and down. The staff starts to play the ads that I'm in on a giant video screen. Suddenly I am like a mascot walking around a theme park ...


* You gotta listen to the whole bit to get this.
