Even though Mike Tyson’s boxing career has long been over, the pontificating pugilist has somehow managed to remain incredibly relevant and extremely popular, which is not surprising at all when you think about it. The guy is a fascinating person and you never know what he’s going to do or say next.
Case in point: Iron Mike made an appearance recently on ESPN 1100 in Las Vegas with Gridlock where he discussed a multitude of topics. One of his responses is what you see above in the headline: “Very rarely do number twos supersede number one.” An odd statement for sure, somewhat vague without some level of context, which brings us to a round of the latest totally made-up game show craze currently sweeping across the nation: let’s play “Guess What Mike Tyson Is Talking About Now!”
Write your guesses down now, contestants.
If you guessed, “Mike Tyson is discussing his toilet habits and the fact that it is a rare occurrence that he defecates prior to urinating,” you would be incorrect. And possibly mentally ill. Why in the world would you be so obsessed with Mike Tyson’s bodily functions that the first thing that comes to your mind is something about him pooping and peeing? Get a grip, weirdo.
Actually, Tyson was discussing his role in The Hangover 2. Read on (via Sports Radio Interviews):
The filming of Hangover 2:
“I was in Bangkok and I was filming the Hangover 2. I can’t tell you much, but I can tell you one thing man. The parts that I have been witnessed to experience and view are hilarious. Very rarely do number twos supersede number one, but this is going to be a good one.”
And here you were originally thinking he was talking about the order in which he expels waste from his body. Sickee.
As an added bonus, guess who Mike Tyson was talking about when he said this during the same radio appearance:
“Charlie can do it. I have faith in him. I think he’s gonna turn it around. If he gets the proper instructions he’s gonna turn it around and be one of the biggest success stories of the world.”
If you answered Charlie Sheen, not only are you correct, you are also keenly aware that Mike Tyson, while an engaging, personable and interesting fellow, probably doesn’t have his head screwed on quite straight. We all know that there is no hope for Charlie.
