Rory McIlroy was sitting in the airport on Wednesday, getting ready to fly from, well, somewhere to somewhere else, when his flight got delayed. To fill the time, McIlroy hopped on Twitter and said he’d do a quick Q&A with his 1.8 million followers.
 
Within minutes, he was flooded with questions ranging from the sublime to the ridiculous. But he was game, and answered a couple dozen queries on everything from fiancée Caroline Wozniacki to Manchester United to his favorite movies and TV shows – even some asking for golf advice.
 
I didn’t ask any questions, but I did enjoy many of his answers. I’ve gone through his prodigious output and culled some of his most interesting responses. Here they are in text form:
