Reason: Imagine a world in which Danny DeVito was six feet tall, or even 5’9″. It’s pretty horrible isn’t it? Twins never gets made. Batman’s nemesis, The Penguin, is played by someone far less suited to the role. It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia is less perfect. And Danny DeVito is an actuary in New Jersey.
Terms: Any and all research into medieval stretching devices is prohibited, as is any investigation of time travel technology with which DeVito could go back in time and convince his child self to not smoke constantly, play near radioactive metals, or whatever the hell it is he did.
