Ellen DeGeneres Fun Facts

Ellen DeGeneres was the clue on a recent episode of Family Feud, and some of the important and very well known facts that the family knew about her were so obvious and well known that actually this clip is really boring because they just nail it with stuff we all know about her for sure. From TheDailyWhat:

Hmmm. I do not know why Poppa Bear got the buzzer for “Doesn’t Like Our Country Very Much.” That is a pretty well known Ellen Fun Fact. And if you walk into any Narnes and Bobles you will find at least four tell-all books about Ellen’s renowned love and caring for her mother. (My personal favorite: Mommy Carest: The Ellen Degeneres And Her Mom Story.) A rare miss, Family Feud buzzer. But here is an interesting list of other Ellen Fun Facts you might not but probably do know:

  • Ellen Degeneres rolls her own cigars.
  • Ellen Degeneres owns four Spanish bodegas in Brooklyn
  • Ellen Degeneres once broke a mermaid’s heart
  • Ellen Dengeres holds the world record in Katamari Damacy
  • Ellen Degeneres spent a large part of the ’80s in a KGB splinter cell doing “wet work”
  • Ellen Degeneres has a secretary named Rosie O’Donnell, Rosie O’Donnell has a secretary named Ellen Degeneres
  • Ellen Degerenes was the person who thought up the duck phone for Jersey Shore
  • Ellen Degeneres hates bonnets in particular, and ribbons in general

Ugh. I’m sorry. I know how boring it is to read an entire list of things that everyone already knows. (Although that does give me a really good idea for a version of the Harper’s Index but for Duh Aficionado magazine.) The good news is that there aren’t any other facts about Ellen Degeneres. I listed them all. I’ve got a feeling this post is just going to have zero comments whatsover because everyone’s going to be like, “Stumped.”

ENDNOTE: so many points to Ellen for the look of nervous hopefulness and muted anticipatory applause just waiting to see if “Doesn’t Like Our Country Very Much” ends up on the big board. A true competitor.
