On Tuesday afternoon, Jeopardy! champion and guest host Ken Jennings was joking around on Twitter again where he revealed the “greatest lie the devil ever told.”
Jennings is known for his humorous takes on Twitter. Although he’s all business when competing and hosting game shows, he keeps things light on social media. Today, his tweet played off a famous movie quote. Fans of The Usual Suspects will know it well.
The 1995 mystery thriller’s most well-known quote comes from actor Kevin Spacey. His character says, “The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn’t exist.”
However, Ken Jennings disagrees. Instead, he hilariously said phantom emails are the devil’s greatest lie.
“The greatest lie the devil ever told is ‘You received this email because you subscribed to our list,'” Ken Jennings joked on Twitter.
Ken Jennings Jokingly Disowns His Son
Recently, Ken Jennings posted a hilarious Twitter exchange with his son, Dylan, after he dissed his father’s favorite baseball team.
Jennings is a huge Seattle Mariners supporter since he grew up in the area. April 1 is Opening Day for the 2021 MLB season. Dylan asked his dad if they could go to the Mariners’ first home game.
Aware of COVID-19 protocols, Jennings asked his son what the capacity would be for Seattle’s home games this season. He asked if the organization is allowing 25% capacity so fans can spread out.
That’s when Dylan responded with a witty comeback his dad didn’t appreciate. His son said that the team is allowing 9,000 fans to attend the game. Additionally, he added, “So 100%,” making fun of the team’s usual poor attendance even in non-COVID times.
The Jeopardy! champion took a screenshot of the father-son exchange and shared it with his Twitter followers.
“My son is kicked out of the family, effective immediately,” Jennings amusingly wrote.
