The latest celebrity to fall in line for Reddit's Ask Me Anything series is everyone's favorite anchorman, Will Ferrell. Tuesday was World Cancer Day, so the actor took to the AMA forum to help raise awareness for a nonprofit cause he supports called Cancer For College.

The results were, of course, hilarious beyond belief. Here are the best questions and answers from the AMA:


1. "Will Ferrell, what is love?"

Love is a complicated thing to figure out. I don't know if anyone ever will. I know this much: I love lamp.

2. "Who has the best butt in the industry?"

Well, according to Top Industry Butts Magazine we all know Bill Gates has held the top spot for 3 years running.

3. "Will what can us loyal fans expect from you next? Can you give us a hint as to a project you may be working on right now?"

I can give you more than a hint. I can just flat out tell you. I will be starting a movie in March with Kevin Hart in which he helps me get ready to go to prison.

4. "Is alien pipe smoking a thing and how do I join?"

Yes, clearly it's a thing. I posted a picture with me holding a pipe smoking alien.

Second answer to your question: Go to your favorite pipe store, buy a couple of reasonably priced pipes (nothing too fancy) and then drive into the desert and look for aliens. It's actually pretty easy. Don't over think it.

5. "How effective is sex panther on women?"

Not that effective. And a word to the wise, do not try to sneak Sex Panther by TSA officials. They don't appreciate it.

6. "Is there any movie role, outside of comedy, that you wish you could have landed?"

Yes. It was down to me or Tobey Maguire for Spider-Man and they harshly told me I was too fat for the suit. That having been said, every time I watch Spider-Man I still think I was the better actor for the role.

7. "Does Mark Wahlberg smell nice?"

Yes, it goes without saying. His scent is a pleasing combination of vanilla and leather.

8. This incredible conversation with Snoop (Dogg) Lion

After Snoop's own AMA session about a year ago, he's remained an active Reddit user under the handle: Here_Comes_the_King. Apparently, he's also a Will Ferrell fan because he showed up with a cowbell-related question:

Here_Comes_The_King: ayy Will, imma need some more cowbell on tha next album, u game?

WillFerrell: Of course! I'm absolutely game, Snoop. I've also got some beats that I want to run by you. I'm warning you now, they're not good.
edit: In fact, I just talked myself out of it. I'm not going to show them to you.

Here_Comes_The_King: boats n hoes part 2 uhearme !! we may need 2 climb some trees first

WillFerrell: I got a lot of trees at my house. Eucalyptus, pine and california oak.
