GLENN: Now, here's a big oxymoron. Now let's go to Happy in California.
CALLER: Oh, yeah.
GLENN: What's happening, Happy?
CALLER: Hey. Well, you asked me to call back in because I and Flat Glenn ran the Boston marathon on April the 20th and you asked for a followup and pictures, et cetera.
GLENN: Okay. April 20th.
GLENN: Have you checked the calendar?
GLENN: No, I ran it. I finished it. We ran for
GLENN: Have you been running since April 20th?
CALLER: Yeah, we ran for the Lance Armstrong Foundation. We finished. I've got pictures of Flat Glenn with a medal. I want to send it to you.
CALLER: And video of the excursion is at http://run.flatglenn.com/.
GLENN: Okay. Now, for anybody who doesn't know what Flat Glenn is, I don't even really know how Flat Glenn started, but I just realized somebody with the name of Happy probably does. How did Flat Glenn start, Happy?
CALLER: Actually I honestly don't know, either. I just love him like I love you.
GLENN: So Flat Glenn is one of the Insiders is an artist and he made this is it on wood or fiberboard?
CALLER: Kind of a pressed board, yes.
GLENN: So he made this Flat Glenn caricature and then made it on the pressed board and now it has traveled the world like I don't know how many times over and people take pictures. The Insiders, they will say, hey, I'm going to the Great Wall; send Flat Glenn. And so then there's this picture of Flat Glenn standing there. It's really, I don't understand it but it's kind of actually kind of cool. But I would just
CALLER: The big problem on marathon day was that there were over 200 Duncan doughnut shops that I had to get Flat Glenn to run past.
CALLER: Plus all of the progressive bookstores on all those campuses, oh, my God, it was really tough.
GLENN: Was he shouting, Woodrow Wilson sucks! Listen, Happy, do one thing for me. When you say "We ran the marathon,"
GLENN: Would you just at least recognize for yourself that Flat Glenn isn't a real person?
CALLER: I might be able to do that but, you know, it was for a good cause. I mean, it was to try to find a could you for cancer and
GLENN: Did you find one?
CALLER: Well, not yet but, you know, the best day or the worst day of running a marathon is better than the best day of chemo.
GLENN: Have you had cancer before?
CALLER: No, I haven't, but that's the only reason that I do, that I run marathons is to raise money. Raise money
GLENN: For cancer or everything?
CALLER: For research.
GLENN: For cancer research?
CALLER: You bet.
GLENN: Do you know somebody who had cancer?
STU: Can't he just care about people?
GLENN: Yes, he can care about people! But he's like, "I run all the time with a piece of wood strapped to my back."
CALLER: No, no.
GLENN: I've got to do it for cancer! I mean, I'm just looking for some I mean, you can care about cancer because you're, you know, whatever.
CALLER: No, I met an 8 year old girl who had been fighting cancer since she was 2 1/2 and that was my initial reason for starting to run and to run for a cure and that was five years ago, and I've done 11 marathons and raised thousands of dollars.
GLENN: See, that's a good reason. Now, the bad side of Glenn, Flat Glenn would say, "So wait a minute, all I heard was you met an 8 year old girl and then you started to run." That's I mean, and I think those things should be thought about before you came on air. Happy, thanks so much and congratulations and send us the pictures, will you? That's Happy in California, and I'm Sad in New York. Back in a second.
