One of these stories is true, and the other two are fabrications. Your hosts must guess which…

Story #1: Prior to the 1988 Olympics, the city of Calgary ran an essay contest, the winner of which would run a leg of the Olympic torch relay. Vincent’s older brother won, and his egalitarian parents ensured that all Elliott siblings both got to run the torch.

Story #2: Ai Weiwei once sent Vincent a photo of his (Ai’s) cat.

Story #3: A pro-pineapple regular of Orlando’s in Lexington, KY, Vincent’s ardor led the restaurant to name a pizza after him.
