A lot of weird things came out of Maury Povich’s “Ask Me Anything” Q&A on Reddit.

That’s not really surprising, given that “The Maury Show” host has built his talk show career around confirming paternity tests (“You are NOT the father!”). But what’s the weirdest thing over the 17 years the show’s been on the air? One Redditor asked. And Maury, bless him, answered.

The 76-year-old has been in broadcast journalism for over 50 years. In 1963, he covered the Kennedy assassination as a radio reporter for Panorama.

Povich was born into a Jewish family in Washington D.C. His father, Shirley Povich, was a sportswriter for the Washington Post. His grandfather, Nathan Povich, emigrated from Lithuania. Povich has been married to news anchor Connie Chung for 30 years. They have one son together (Povich has two daughters from his previous marriage to Phyllis Minkoff).

Asked what he has learned from “Maury Show” guests, Povich answered:

Couples, you’ve been warned. Trust uncle Maury.
