Judge John Hodgman: ODOR IN THE COURT!

Ordinarily, I’m the bailiff on the Judge John Hodgman Podcast, which features my friend John Hodgman (who you may know from The Daily Show, his books, Bored to Death or the Mac/PC commercials) as a wise and hilarious judge.

This week, though, while the judge is away, the bailiff plays. Hodgman’s on vacation, so I sat in for him in a very Put This On case: a man who sometimes goes two weeks without showering or washing his clothes, cuts his own hair and insists he doesn’t smell.

When I’m not hosting my public radio show, The Sound of Young America, or my comedy show, Jordan, Jesse, Go!, my TV show, The Grid, or Put This On, I produce and serve as the bailiff on the Judge John Hodgman podcast. In the show, John (who you may know from the Daily Show or as the PC in the Mac/PC commercials) judges personal disputes, People’s Court-style. 

This week’s case was style related: a woman who was embarassed that her fiance went to work wearing torn jeans or cargo shorts and ratty t-shirts. His argument was that he was a programmer, and at least he wasn’t wearing a shirt with a unicorn on it. She countered that it was embarrassing to be seen with him.
