Trying to define Dennis Rodman is like trying to mop the ocean. The truest definition of Dennis is that he is undefinable. A walking and thrusting enigma.

We’re talking about the dude who’s had three wives but also invites a teammate and his wife on a double date to a gay bar. The guy refused to go down on the Queen of Pop, but had sex with Carmen Electra on half-court of the Bulls practice facility. The beauty of Dennis Rodman.

In a resurfaced video from 1996, Oprah made the mistake of trying to put the cross-dressing NBA champion in a box. Or maybe just the opposite.

The clip has since gone viral for Oprah incessantly questioning Rodman about his sexuality after he admitted to having some form of attraction to men, but calls himself only “mentally bisexual” because he has not acted on it.

Oprah does everything in this interview but ask to sniff Rodman’s hog. I know the times were a bit different, but sheesh Oprah, let the man live.

Oprah’s thirst for this knowledge inspired some pretty hilarious responses.

Oprah finding herself on the wrong side of history.

Matt’s love of writing was born during a sixth grade assembly when it was announced that his essay titled “Why Drugs Are Bad” had taken first prize in D.A.R.E.’s grade-wide contest. The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
