But how is he with spicy food? Find out as the Big Aristotle has his date with the wings of death-one he claims he only accepted because he thought Justin Timberlake was hosting.

    Shaq is such a nice guy. One of the most simply likeable people I know of. The way he cracks up at Jeff Ross's roasts is infectious. He's also a giant, but that is beside the point. Roger Ebert's opinion of him makes sense--if he is in a movie, they shouldn't focus on his height. Like, making him a mystical character or genie or whatever. They should write a part for him that makes sense, and if it was done well, you would forget he was so huge.

      NamasteSpoon nah he probably got bullied as a kid, I see him being this aloof non-witty kid which would make him a perfect target.
      His dad probably hit him a lot as a kid (being a sergeant and all). Teaching him about respect too. So he probably learned from his upbringing to always fight back. Which then brings in the insecurity.
