Poor chap, hope his family are doing well.


Did he really pronounce his name eye-gor instead of the standard ee-gor? Or was that just the news anchor providing a subtle shout-out to Young Frankenstein?


Accentuate the postive.

Congratulations Broc Brown! At 7 feet 8 inches, you’re now the tallest living American!

I remember Igor saying that one good thing about being that tall was that when you bought a “large” anything they would usually only charge you the small price.
Because it would look small compared to how big you were ah never mind
