    That sounds like he's saying the purple belt was 14 to me. Anthony's question makes sense to me.

    The purple belt is a Judoka. That is, he has a purple belt in Judo, not Brazilian Jiujitsu.
    I'm not drowning my sorrows, I'm preserving them in alcohol.

    It's a Judo purple, because he's a judo player, in a Judo school, see?

    That's a damn fine idea! I wonder how long it would take to bring my wife up to purple belt level?

    What? I'm tired of doing all the sweeping around my house.
    Shut the hell up and train.

    I tapped a BJJ purple during my first lesson.

    He was like "hold my arm like this, control my wrist, now lean back" and then he tapped.
    You can't make people smarter. You can expose them to information, but your responsibility stops there.

    He is saying the purple belt was 14.

    In judo, US at least, blue and purple belts are junior rank only; adults (and some teens) get three levels of brown.

    If you read his followup post, he's playing on the somewhat juvenile tendency of people to brag online about what happens in practice (and it happens to touch on the BJJ bias here). Anthony didn't get it.

    You see, it's funny because while you're expecting an esoteric (and therefore comedic) explanation as to why it crossed the road, what you get is a completely mundane, indeed self evident, one. By exposing, and violating, your initial unspoken assumptions, humour is created.
