Anderson Cooper sounds like a pretty knowledgeable guy when he reads off the teleprompter. However, his skills at trivial are no match for the mind of Cheech Marin, which is powered by something a little greener.

Not only did the actor and marijuana advocate crush CNN's poster boy in "Celebrity Jeopardy," but he bested comedienne Aisha Tyler, who was brainy enough to attend Dartmouth College.

Marin then appeared on "Anderson Cooper 360," where the newsman admitted humiliating defeat, and told Cheech about all the grief he has been taking since he lost to the perceived slacker.

Cooper also forwarded the theory that Marin's success was due to something called "zen of the buzzer." Which almost sounds like it would make a good Cheech and Chong movie. Read on to check it out.
