This far out from the Watson Jeopardy! game, the bar is pretty high for news related the match, but Ken Jennings stepped onto the Conde Nast-owned Reddit today for their “Ask Me Anything” feature and offered an unprecedented amount of frankness and wit in his answers. There are plenty of revelations about his pop culture absorption as well.
The Mormon phenom started things early with his username, WatsonsBitch. “Lots of people think it’s a Jeopardy reference,” he wrote, “but actually I was thinking of that time Watson and I were cellmates in prison, and it kept raping me.”
“Specifically, what kind of wheelbarrow do you carry your balls in?” one user asked.
“My balls are carried for me at all times by the thirteen contestants who lost to me on Jeopardy back in 2004 with a negative score, meaning they didn’t get to compete in Final Jeopardy,” he responded. “They take turns.”
To the people praising his sense of humor he had this to say: “Bruce Vilanch is hiding under my desk right now. Unfortunately he’s not writing jokes for me, if you know what I mean.”
Charlie Sheen references abound! Check it out.
