There's a great scene in Judd Apatow's Funny People where Jonah Hill and Seth Rogen discuss how weight loss will affect their comedy. They come to the conclusion, if I remember correctly, that fat people are funny, and this seems to be a sentiment recently embraced by co-creator and star of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Rob McElhenny.

The actor who plays Mac on the hilarious FX comedy (which just scheduled a screening of this season's opener, as well as a panel in Hall H, at Comic-Con) decided that his character would be funnier fat. That's it. No other rhyme or reason, unless he's lying to cover-up a real life weight problem. I wonder if his wife, Kaitlin Olson, who plays Dee on the show, thinks fat is funny? Anyway, take a look at "Fat Mac" (image courtesy Warming Glow) and see what you think...he might be onto something, because I laughed.

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia returns to FX for Season 6 this September. Can't wait.
