Former Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o answered a question asked by Katie Couric during a televised interview regarding his sexuality by declaring himself to be straight. "Faaar from" gay, to be exact.
The question was weird. This story is weird. Football fans are watching Katie Couric, which is weird. His answer was okay, but the emphasis was weird. Probably one of the 25 weirdest Manti Te'o things of the day. So here are just a few things Manti Te'o is straighter than:
- Straight gin
- Straight cash homie
- Scared Straight parodies
- George Strait's appearance on King of the Hill
- Straight drop
- Louie Anderson
- Straight No Chaser's performance of "The Lion Sleeps Tonight"
- Straight flexin' on Instagram
- Abel Streight, Union general
- Straights vs. full houses vs. three-of-a-kind
- "Straight Outta Dunwoody"
- Straight leg jeans
- Straight edge tattoos
- You know, like CM Punk's Pepsi one
- The Strait of Hormuz
- The Prime Meridian
- Straight irons
- Straight Talk SIM cards
