Shawn Johnson is an Oompa Loompa

That has to be what Chingy is thinking here:

The gold medal-winning Olympic gymnast (turned Dancing With the Stars champ) is actually 4 feet 9 inches tall, according to her Wikipedia page. And judging from the cuts she was taking at the 'Home Run Derby' portion of FanFest, a warm-up for the celebrity softball game yesterday, she should stick to the balance beam instead of the baseball diamond. *Update 10/14: After seeing her do backflips on the way to first base after drawing a walk in the actual celebrity softball game, I take it all back. If she is an Oompa, she is the cutest, most agile Loompa that ever lived.
