The C.D. Bales character, played by Steve Martin
, is the Fire Chief of Nelson in British Columbia, Canada. Bales, who, "from his youth, was ridiculed a lot because of his, uh, feature", said Martin who added, "he's very quick, very sophisticated as a writer, end pretty much in control of his life, except for his one handicap. He has been thinking up jokes about it his whole life, collecting them. After a life of ridicule, though, you become pretty defensive". See more
