Like a Republican congressman with the government, Bill Nye’s doctor tried to shut him down.
At the end of last week’s breathless, insane attempt to be the body double of Beethoven dancing the paso doble on “Dancing With The Stars,” Bill Nye injured himself.
Lunging toward the lap of his partner, Tyne Stecklein, he tore his quadriceps tendon.
Like a good scientist, he went to see the doctor. The doctor cast a smug eye at him and said he wouldn’t recommend anything other than a wheelchair.
Nye decided to eschew science for pure religious faith. But he had platelet treatment, just to keep science happy.
Manfully, he decided he would perform a jazz routine, quad be damned. He might as well have mounted a quad bike.
For Stecklein produced a piece of choreography that involved trying to get Nye to move as little as possible.
