I was watching "The Amazing Race" (which I thought was just a documentary about Asians) and they had a cameo by He Pingping, the world's smallest man. At 2 feet, 5 inches tall, Pingping took the world record from the Dominican midget who previously held the title. This dude fucking LOVED to smoke. He was on the show for maybe 5 minutes and he smoked through a cigarette that looked about as fat and long (pause) as a toilet paper tube. Turns out this guy died in Italy in March after tragically falling off a curb. Too bad he wasn't around to see his national TV debut.
UPDATE: He actually died from a heart condition.
