Martin Short Tells Letterman Amazing(ly Awkward) Story About Meeting David Axelrod

Actor Martin Short stopped by the Late Show Tuesday, where he told host David Letterman a story about his awkward run-in at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner.

After a quick joke about Romney’s bronzer (“Move over, Snooki!”), Short shared an anecdote about going up to actor Richard Kind (this guy… you know him), hugging him from behind, and announcing “Papa’s gained a little weight, hasn’t he?” You know, typical greeting.

Turns out? Papa wasn’t Richard Kind at all. Papa was none other than David Axelrod.
