Sigh. There’s going to be a one-hour special on the world’s shortest man, Edward Hernandez, a 25-year-old Colombian not much larger than a corgi. On TLC. Of course TLC. It would be nowhere else but TLC. From THR:
At 27 inches tall (that’s 2 feet 3 inches, people!) he’s the Guinness world record holder for being the shortest man on earth. The special follows Hernandez as he deals with his newfound fame and wonders just how long it will all last before someone else takes the title from him.
There’s video below, and it just depresses the hell out of me. Seriously, watching TLC is like stepping inside the tent of a Depression-era circus. The lions are all sick and mangy, the ringmaster is an oily two-bit swindler, and the people in the freak show are kept in cages and brought out only to be gawked and prodded with sticks. TLC is awful.
