Meet the Mayor: Gold's Gym

Welcome to "Meet the Mayor," a segment in which we interview local Foursquare Mayors in their natural habitats.

Gold's Gym
Ellen Harfenist

Staying in shape is fine, but isn't it better to become grotesquely fat?
I think the process would be great: eating a lot and being lazy. But you probably wouldn't feel good about yourself.

Mac from Always Sunny got fat to be funnier. So fat people are funnier? Funny people feel good about themselves ...
Drew Carey was never funny, but he's like a pencil now. John Goodman's getting skinnier. I've seen Lenny Clarke's Weight Watchers commercial. Your theory seems flawed.

You're right. Kevin James isn't funny, either.
He's still fat and very funny.

 ... y'think?
Of course. The King of Queens is a great show, although I've never seen his stand-up. I used to be really fat. Like, really fat. I lost about 90 pounds. I used to be hilarious, and I'm just ... not anymore.

There is no good reason to run, unless something is chasing you. Agree?
I don't think I've ever been in that predicament. I had to run after someone who stole my car once. I saw him get in my car and take off.

Did you catch him?
Unfortunately, I can't run 25 miles per hour. But I've never been chased. I'm usually the chaser.
