Meet Todd Rosenberg, also known as "Odd Todd" from Oddtodd.com, an animated site about a day in the life of ablue bathrobe-wearingunemployed guy. The site was a viral smash hit during the dot-com boom, and since then, Todd has produced over fifty "Odd Todd" shorts and games, writtenThe Odd Todd Handbook: Hard Times, Soft Couch(Warner Books), which is in development at Comedy Central, and penned a live-action screenplay for Paramount. Currently, he produces animated segments for The IFC Media Project, America’s Test Kitchen and ABC World News. He is a commentator for NPR’s All Things Considered and has been visibly nervous on The Today Show, CNN and MSNBC. Todd’s “My Whole Hair Story,” (read an excerpt after the jump) appears inSex, Drugs & Gefilte Fish, and we recently caught up with him to answer our SDGF questionnaire:

What was your worst Gefilte Fish experience?
My aunt was serving gefilte fish that looked relatively "authentic" and she went around the table with a bowl asking if we wanted sauce. I assumed it was something like a horseradish sauce. But it wasn’t. It was gelatin disgustingness. She put a full scoop of the stuff right on top of the gefilte fish. It made a suction noise as it left the ladle.
Rosenberg’s “My Whole Hair Story” is an illustrated account of his disastrous experience with theHair Club for Men:
When I walked in to this cheesy place, I saw one of the guys from the actual commercial! The guy from the pool! I recognized him immediately. It was like seeing a minor celebrity! I was surprisingly thrilled. But then I started really looking at his hair. It looked terrible. Like this:
