Penn and tarantella

Oops! I found out about this the other day, but forgot to mention it: Penn (yes, Penn) will be in next season's "Dancing with the Stars".

Now, if you're done making those comical rubbing-fists-in-eyes motions, I'll continue. His partner will be Kym Johnson, who I hope is 17 feet tall, as Penn is ginormous (my biggest shock when I met Teller is that he is my height, roughly 5'10" or so; I always assumed he was three feet tall). I also hope her insurance is paid up. He may try to saw her in half or shoot her or set her on fire, which, honestly, would be totally cool.

I honestly don't know what to make of this news, except to say that I will definitely watch it. I have to give him the benefit of the doubt; he picked up playing bass pretty quickly, so maybe he can dance.

I also discovered that he will be on the Oprah Winfrey show today as they introduce the new season.

Hat tip to The Friendly Atheist for reminding me this, though my title is way better.
