When Einstein was teaching at the California Institute of Technology in the early 1930’s, he attended a puppet show at the Teatro Torito in nearby Hollywood that featured this puppet of himself. According to Retronaut, after the show “he reached into his jacket’s breast pocket, pulled out a letter and crumpled it up. Speaking in German, he said, ‘The puppet wasn’t fat enough!’ He laughed and stuffed the crumpled letter up under the smock to give the puppet a fatter belly.”
