A lot of online bios (I think I did this also, at some point) follow the cliché non sequitur: A, A, B; with A being a high-level endeavour or noble pursuit and B a, seemingly at odds, interest that supposedly provides a comic effect due to implicitly being as important to the person as A. For instance:

- Philosophy, Quantum mechanics, cooking
- Literature, human rights, cycling
- Cancer research, digital freedom, pokemon

This has somehow evolved in time to the mutant form B, B, B - where the high-level endeavour is gone.
This is a post-modern meta-bio, due to being very self-referential (the noble pursuit is implicit). So we have

- Cooking, cycling, pokemon
- Knitting, legos, k-pop
