Arrested Development and Gordon Lish for $400, Alex: Ken Jennings Rumbles on Reddit

108023987 Arrested Development and Gordon Lish for $400, Alex: Ken Jennings Rumbles on RedditThis 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.

    The Polo Grounds has held its fair share of international soccer matches as well over the years. In 1926, Hakoah, an all-Jewish side from Vienna, Austria,
    “drew the largest crowds ever to watch soccer in America up to that
    time: three successive games drew 25,000, 30,000, and 36,000 spectators.
    The highlight of the tour was a May 1, 1926 exhibition game between
    Hakoah and an American Soccer League all-New York team which drew 46,000 fans to the Polo Grounds in New York.” (The ASL team won 3–0.)

    A 1989 three-part TV mini-series starred Pierce Brosnan as Fogg, Eric Idle as Passepartout, Peter Ustinov
    as Fix and several TV stars in cameo roles. The heroes travel a
    slightly different route than in the book and the script makes several
    contemporary celebrities part of the story who were not mentioned in the
    book.
