...but sang the Big Bang Theory theme song...
Just like your humble correspondent yesterday, Stephen Hawking got a flat tire which is why he couldn't be at the Comic Con. At least, he prerecorded this monologue:
He also sings the theme song of TBBT, a very successful sitcom of CBS that is nominated for Emmy 2013 much like Sheldon Cooper and Amy Farrah Fowler.
Much like Sheldon Cooper, I am the last drafted man when teams are being divided in collective games – unless there is someone on the wheelchair. But it seems likely that Stephen Hawking would be drafted ahead of me, too. ;-)
If you listen to the monologue carefully, you will also notice that Hawking announced a new book and a new movie, both of them primarily about himself. You may already buy the movie today for $3,900.
