Alex: He has nothing to do with the Mötley Cröe band. His name is A.J. Motley. He is from Texas. And I want to hear about a visit to New Orleans, and in particular, the naked bike ride.
A.J.: Well, I was in New Orleans this past month. Luckily, it was--or this past year in June. Luckily, it wasn't in January. But, um, we were there, walking around on a Saturday morning, having--just sightseeing, and somebody mentioned something about a naked bike parade, uh, for an environmental cause. And within a couple of minutes, sure enough, we're on Bourbon Street, and here come about 500 or more people of varying genders, on bicycles, completely nude. Some with special costumes, but nothing covering anything else.
Alex: And did you want to join them?
A.J.: Oh, no! No, No. No. But I-I did enjoy seeing it. I mean, it's...
Alex: I don't think I would have enjoyed seeing it.

Alex: Lynn Welch is a pharmacist from Evanston, Illinois, who used to work with worms. Why?

Lynn: --and I'm not talking about my coworkers.
Lynn: It was an invertebrate zoology lab.
Alex: And what was the purpose of the study?
Lynn: Uh, they were studying different drugs and their effects on the worms.
Alex: And the effects on the worms? [Laughs] Okay. Hmm.
Alex: My pill's safe. It didn't kill the worm.
Alex: Prabhu, I wanna hear about the fact that you're a marathon dancer, and you participate in competitions, right?
Prabhu: So it's not--
Alex: You dance till dawn?
Prabhu: It's not competitions, but, uh, my alma mater, Stanford, has an annual event called The Big Dance where it's an all-night dance, from 9:00 P.M. to 6:00 A.M. And, uh, it's mostly kind of social ballroom dancing--swing, waltz, Latin.
Alex: What about the tango, that wild...
Prabhu: I can bust it out every now and then.
Alex: Yeah, you can? I bet you can. All right.JEOPARDY! ROUND DAILY DOUBLE
