    Tony Little is a character, to be sure, but he's also quite an inspiration. He's overcome a tremendous amount in his life: http://www.tonylittle.com/Pages/AboutTony.aspx

    We all have our ups and downs, and I don't think starting a thread to make fun of someone (even if he's famous) is what this forum is all about. I know that's not why I started it. This forum exists to help bring people up, not tear them down.

    Something to think about...

    His peseverence notwithstanding - you have to admit he's milked that cow one time too many.

    I think the junk he sells is obscene - I spent far too many hours explaining to my mother how worthless this kind of exercise equipment is and the only thing it lightens is her wallet.

    I'm not making fun of him - but I agree he's a washed up has-been who should be ashamed of the money he makes taking advantage of overwieght and self-conscious consumers.

    (And granted - he's not the only one selling this crap . . . )

    I knew Tony Little when he was chunky, during the great depression. I lived directly across the street from him and mowed his lawn once. He wasn't satisfied with the job I did and said my lawnmower was too close to the ground.

    That is my famous person story, thank you.

    Wow john, didn't know that about him, edited my post.

    Wasn' really trying to make alot of fun out of him, just found it funny he was selling fitness equipment he needs to use himself, at this time, if the gazzelle works anyhow.

    Tony Little is awesome. Richard Simmons, too. Anybody who can get that amped about getting people in shape is okay in my book, even if they don't necessarily have all the answers.

    Although I believe Richard Simmons has generally been more knowledgeable and helpful to his customer base than Tony Little, but he's definitely . . . one of a kind.

    Their particular products may not be my thing, I may not be much like them personally, but just throwing that level of energy in everybody's face on late night TV is a good thing and deserves some props.
