Oddly enough, did you guys know the actor who played Newman (I think his real name's Wayne Knight) lost a shitload of weight and can do around ten pullups (last I heard anyway). The news showed some footage of him jogging up a mountain trail and he wasn't that fat at all.
Not verbatim, but in the interview he was asked:
Reporter: "Don't you feel that by getting in shape you're missing out on parts you could have played?"
Wayne Knight: "Well it's either that . . . or an early death."
P.S. As an aspiring direct response advertiser, postal workers throwing out mail pisses me off.
