Yes!!!  They used to have ones called Twerps (I think) that were bite size.  Those went away a few years ago, but the new ones are pretty close.

For some reason, I imagine that John Ritter's Sport was handball.  I don't know why.

Oh man, those look tasty! I love stuff like that. So many great flavors there. I'm a huge fan of orange slices.



Also, I'd like to give an honorable mention to Almond Roca. YUM!

LoC Rest of the Best - Day 16 – Riffers You Want to See


John Hodgman


John Kellogg Hodgman (born June 3, 1971) is an American actor, author and humorist. In addition to his published written works, such as The Areas of My Expertise and More Information Than You Require, he is known for his personification of a PC in contrast to Justin Long's personification of a Mac in Apple's "Get a Mac" advertising campaign, and for his correspondent work on Comedy Central's The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.

His writings have been published in One Story (to which he contributed the debut story), The Paris Review, McSweeney's Quarterly Concern, Wired and The New York Times Magazine, for which he is editor of the humor section. He contributes to Public Radio International’s This American Life, and CBC Radio One’s Wiretap. His first book and accompanying audio narration, The Areas of My Expertise, a satirical tongue-in-cheek almanac which actually contains almost no factual information, was published in 2005. His second book, More Information Than You Require, went on sale October 21, 2008.
Hodgman was the headline speaker at the 2009 Radio and Television Correspondents' Association dinner in Washington, D.C.

John also unearthed the original lyrics to the classic hobo song “Big Rock Candy Mountain” and has terrible cat sitter sing the lyrics.

Personal thoughts:
Like many, I first noticed him on the Daily Show.  He was certainly funny and he hit my nerd buttons (suggesting that we can only define planets based on whether Galatus would eat it for sustenance).  But after reading his amazing humour almanac “The Areas of My Expertise”, I was blown away by his comedic genius.  His matter of factness and his nerd tastes to the most ludicrous stuff makes him a prime rifer in terms of skill.  My choice for a film for him: Gymkata.  He can give us a historical perspective on Gymkata and the making of the film.

LoC Rest of the Best - Day 16 – Riffers You Want to See


Alton Brown

From wiki:
Alton Crawford Brown (born July 30, 1962) is an American television personality, author, actor, and cinematographer. He is the creator and host of the Food Network television show Good Eats and the mini-series Feasting on Asphalt and Feasting on Waves, and he is the host and main commentator on Iron Chef America. Brown is also the author of several cooking how-to books.
He brings a knowledge and enthusiasm for the science of cooking and food and a humorous approach to his shows. Bon Appétit magazine named him "Cooking Teacher of the Year" in 2004. He was named "Best Food Guru" by Atlanta magazine in 2005.

I think this sums him up pretty well:
In the tenth anniversary episode, Alton Brown stated that [Good Eats] was inspired by the idea of combining Julia Child, Mr. Wizard, and Monty Python.

Based on some twitter conversations, this may be happening:

LoC Rest of the Best - Day 16 - Top Riffers You Want To See

Really, this guy doesn't even need a script.  Just let him go on a stream of consciousness rampage on whatever film and it would be fascinating and likely hilarious (but not for the right reasons)
.

Tommy Wiseau


The Wiki:
Tommy Wiseau is an American screenwriter, director, producer, executive producer, and actor. He is the founder of the film production company Wiseau Films. Wiseau is best known for his film The Room which has been described as "one of the worst movies ever made" and has gained cult film status. Wiseau also made the documentary Homeless in America and filmed the pilot episode of the sitcom, The Neighbors.

L.O.C. #16 - Top People You'd Want to See Riff

Patrick Stewart


Thoughts
For some reason, I just think this would be pretty damn funny. He has a great sense of humor and some of the best pipes in the business. I think he'd make a great guest riffer. Also, he'd be the first riffer who's been knighted!

The Wiki
Sir Patrick Hewes Stewart, OBE (born 13 July 1940) is an English film, television and stage actor, and university chancellor. He has had a distinguished career in theatre and television for around half a century. He is most widely known for his television and film roles, such as Captain Jean-Luc Picard in Star Trek: The Next Generation and its successor films, Professor Charles Xavier in the X-Men film series, and as the voice of Avery Bullock in American Dad!.
