Ken Jennings may be a Jeopardy! winner and fan-favorite but he is also somewhat of a comedian! He loves to share witty and often sarcastic jokes on Twitter. Recently, he decided to stir up some controversy with a joke about the beloved film The Wizard of Oz.
He tweeted, “I don’t want to get controversial on here but if I went to the ‘Wizard of Oz’ needing a heart and he gave me a “testimonial,” I’d be super-pissed.” He is referring to the ending when the Tin Man asks for a heart and receives a testimonial.
