Former Major League Baseball player and noted (and admitted) steroid abuser Jose Canseco took to Reddit today to participate in an AMA (ask me anything) thread as part of the promotion for his podcast, Canseco Knows Best.
It turns out that Canseco does not, in fact, know best. Far from it. His AMA was extremely ill-advised — and it quickly became legendary. Redditors immediately started ripping Canseco to shreds with stories about what a gigantic douchebag he is. It was Woody Harrelson times ten (and if you don’t get what that means, then you don’t get the Internet these days). In between outright insults and mockery (much of which went right over Canseco’s anabolically enlarged head), some Redditors asked him some pretty hilarious questions.
Canseco played along surprisingly well, posting some of the most bizarre, funny and poorly spelled answers in AMA history. You kind of get the feeling that he thinks his nonsensical insults make him look like a genius, but whatever. Let him think that. The rest of us are too busy laughing at him.
You should really go read the entire thing, but I’ll post some of the best parts below.
