Can a 450-pound stand-up comic leverage his weight problem to become the funniest person in America? Fat chance. That's not being disrespectful, that's actually the title Ralphie May has picked out for his hoped-for TV series. "It's about a comic who wants to make it in the business, but he can't break through because of his weight," says May. "It's going to be called 'Fat Chance' because that's what I've been told: 'Fat chance if you want to make it here, because you don't look like L.A.'

Travel arrangements for the Orange Bowl-bound Colorado Buffaloes are relatively easy compared to the preparations required to get Ralphie to Miami, Colorado officials say. Ralphie III, the 1,000-pound five-foot female buffalo mascot, travels to out-of-state games in an enlarged horse trailer. Colorado officials are contacting alumni who might be ranchers or farmers along a route between Boulder and Miami to ask if Ralphie may stay a night with them.

When comedian Jon Stewart hosted the 2002 Grammys, he did a brave and startling thing: He stripped to his boxers onstage, revealing a body (and here I am referring to the all-important chest and waist areas) that could judgmentally be deemed flabby. His body was mine--the one I stare at with disappointment in the mirror, the one I never see on TV. Neither fat nor thin, in shape nor out.
