Jose Canseco is, at this point, like a Sacha Baron Cohen creation. He's wacky, unpredictable and the type of character who makes you wonder, "is this for real?" But like Borat or Bruno, if you pay attention for a few minutes, it's quite obvious it's all a big show.

Still, Canseco — the former baseball slugger turned steroids snitch turned Twitter trainwreck — knows how to entertain. It's more laugh-at-him than laugh-with-him, but that seems to be OK with Jose.

Canseco debuted his podcast today, which I might get around to listening to, and he offered himself up for a Reddit Ask-Me-Anything session, which proved quite entertaining. If you thought his Twitter feed was strange, imagine was happens when people are tossing questions at him (or whoever ghostwrites for him). Actually, you don't have to imagine. We've collected some of "best" moments right here — others were too profane, so you might want to wander over to Reddit to scope out the whole thing if that's your speed. (Note: Canseco's answers are highlighted.)

In his SECOND ANSWER, Canseco goes to mom jokes.

Set the tone early, eh Jose? Or should we call you Pee Wee Canseco?

Because, of course.

And thus was born the John Rocker/Jose Canseco life feud.

How much can we pay him NOT to put out a DVD?

Confession: I'd watch.

After reading all this, I believe the guy who asked the question.

Apparently, Canseco is not done answering questions. He said he's taking a break and will be back later. Let's all hope so.

Baseball is back. Don't miss anything.
