    Kal Penn, known for playing Kumar in those lovable Harold and Kumar franchise films and for leaving Hollywood in order to take a political office in the Obama administration in Washington, DC was mugged on Tuesday in the nation's capital. In a story posted on www.people.com, Penn was robbed at gunpoint in the early hours, with the muggers ganking his wallet and some other personal possessions. He was not hurt in the robbery.

    Rumors also abounded that Penn was leaving his DC gig to return to Hollywood. Perhaps public service was not as rewarding as portraying a snarky stoner in baked comedies? Did anyone else wonder why the hell Kumar was working for the government and not for, say, White Castle?

    What's your favorite stoner comedy? Who's better: Jeff Spicoli or Kumar? Or Jim Breuer in Half-Baked?
