Shaq Fu Yung


Shaquille O'Neal, last seen storming into the wrong house as part of a Virginia SWAT team, is about to burst into the exciting world of anti-obesity politics. Explains the Associated Press:

Shaquille O'Neal will be taking a shot at a TV reality show focused on childhood obesity and health.

The series, being filmed in Broward County, Fla., will track the lives of the children involved. O'Neal will be on hand as booster and, in episodes yet to be shot, will lobby politicians on causes including school nutrition, Daily Variety reported Monday.

What is it with fat-kid-TV and ironic casting? We're still waiting for that promised Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen nutrition show. And as Baylen Linnekin points out , Shaq's BMI is off the charts.
