So, just how big is Kevin Smith?
Kevin Smith’s not that overweight. Is he? The question is not entirely gratuitous. It has emerged that Smith, director of Clerks and a dozen other slacker entertainments, got bumped from a Southwest Airlines flight because, the authorities said, his weight constituted a health risk. The airline later apologised, but Kev wasn’t having it. “Once again: I know I’m fat. The point of all this? I’m not too fat for Southwest Air, yet someone deemed me so,” he wrote on his blog. Again, to be fair, he’s really not that enormous.
