Scoops Callahan is back. The 1920s-style reporter, who pranks athletes with funny questions, had a doozie for Aaron Rodgers following the Packers’ 34-24 win over the Cowboys on Sunday.

“What was the key to distributing your packer city lightning to all of your buttonmen like all-decade torpedo LaVern Dilweg?” Callahan asked.

The quarterback was very confused by the question but was polite in his response: “I don’t have any idea what you are talking about,” Rodgers said, laughing. “That’s a good question though.”

Callahan is played by Tom Gribble, a sports radio host in the Dallas area.

His work started in 2005, with a question directed at then-Phoenix Coyotes coach Wayne Gretzky: “Champ, how do you think the zebras called the show? Were they the cat’s meow, or did they give your boys the business?”

Since then, Gribble has pranked unsuspecting athletes and coaches like Bill Belichick, Tom Brady, David Beckham, and Phil Mickelson.

Here’s a compilation of some of his best work:

The best reaction is Eli Manning, who had no reaction and appeared to accept Callahan’s question as completely normal.
