Al and another has-been
If yes, that makes you and the most famous U.S. stomach-shrinker surgery patient Al Roker. Roker's been pimping the Ozark town (city?) all morning on The Today Show, hanging with The Righteous Brothers and Mr. Branson himself, Yakov Smirnoff.

I liked when Roker asked what made Branson such a great place to put down roots, and Smirnoff described all the great "family entertainment," noting, "You don't have to leave granny in the car and wave goodbye, while she sits there writing you out of your will."

That reminds me of the kickass feature story Chad wrote awhile back, called "God. Country (and what a country!). BRANSON." Smirnoff was his guide to "a veritable geezer's shangri-la."

So, why is Roker really roaming around Branson? He's actually going to be giving the ol' waistline a workout as the celebrity judge of The First Annual Great American Pie Show.
